The Second Step - List all the possible information sources!
where could I go?

Ask - who, what, where?

Who might know? - your friend, your aunt?

What information sources are there? - books, websites?

Where might you go? - travel agent? your aunt's photo album?


Listing all possible sources ...

... allows your imagination to run wild. Include everything - and only then delete those things which are obviously impractical.

Did you include "Talk to Aunty May in Sydney?" That may not be practical, but could you get her e-mail address and write instead?

Did you write "Read a Canadian newspaper?" You may not be able to get a paper copy, but there are Canadian papers online.

Try everything!
