If you read my last post, I mentioned that I am trying to research a man named Ingeman with no last name. Not easy.
This morning I went to a free workshop titled The Basics of Historical Resarch at Bellevue College Campus in the same building as The Puget Sound Branch of the Washington State Archives.
For whatever reason, I haven't used the Washington State Archives database much (maybe I tried it and it didn't have much of interest to me as the collection was starting to grow so I forgot about it). I thought I'd poke around when I got home and even though I only have a first name, I decided to search it since it's not too common in the United States.
