Sometimes, I think the best way to gather information is to take a big net and try to scoop up as many folks with the last name, Givens, as I can--then look through them to see if there is anything familiar. Generally, I believe that it is a good idea to join a messageboard for the surname and place that you are researching--leaving tracks so that others can find you.

The professional way to research, I've been told, is to start with what you know and go backwards. What do you think?
