When creating a post, or explaining something to someone, make sure that you include all of the information that is relevant to the information being requested.

If you are asking about a land deed, include any information you already have on the time frame in which your ancestor lived in the area.  This may include when you think your ancestor arrived in the area, when your ancestor may have left the area (either by moving or by death), the name of the spouse of your ancestor, the names of potential children of your ancestor, and the names of any relatives that may have lived in the same area as your ancestor.

Any information, no matter how trivial it may seem, may be helpful in determining information about your ancestor.
