I have some ancesters who seem to disappear for long lenghts of time to suddenly reappear again and carry on as usual.

My grandmother is one. She lived with her parents until around 17 then disappeared and i found her at age 27 from my fathers birth cert. and have been able to track her without a great deal of trouble from there on.
My hubby's great great gandparents, i cannot find at all besides their names on their sons marriage cert. otherwise it is like they never excisted at all.

Maybe im just not looking in the right places.
