Expert Question: I am searching for the birth date, place and parents and grandparents of someone who allegedly left Madrid, Spain in 1780.  We have no idea about immigration to the Americas, but we find him in Nicaragua.  We have excellent records of his heirs thereafter.   But we can find no records of passage, no date of birth and no parental information.  Since the family seat tends to be Asturia, Spain, we have tried there to no avail. There is no evidence of a name change en route.  But then, there is no evidence of him in Spain at all.

Expert Answer:  You've made it a long way - congrats.  While I don't know the intimate details of your search, if you haven't ready my article entitled, Using a Research Outline to Focus Your Genealogical Research, I would suggest taking a look at that.  It will guide you to determine what records you have and have not researched for this individual and their surrounding family members that may lead you to your answer.  The only word of caution I will give is to begin with the records in America and trace back, as the 'shot in the dark' approach of looking for him in Spain will take a much longer time.

This applies to all other countries as well. Start with what you know and work backwards based on the facts, not the family 'hear-say'.

Still have questions, Ask the Expert.
