How To Break Down A Brick Wall
It happens, or will happen, to all of us. Your family history research comes to a screeching halt. The trail goes cold. You can't find any more information on an ancestor. You try everything you know and you get nowhere. We call it a brick wall.
Ancestry.com recently posted an interesting piece on their blog about knocking down one of these obstacles. Someone wrote in asking Ancestry.com how to find out more information about her grandfather. The experts then proceeded to break down the wall and dig up the elusive details. It is a wonderful example of how this is done and an interesting story to boot!
I hope you will take a minute to read Window Through A Widow's Pension posted by the Ancestry team on 22 April and see if it might give you some ideas on how to break down a wall or two of your own.
