Strategies for Breaking Down Brick Walls  (Beginning Genealogy Workshop)
9:30 am to 11:00 am

A brick wall is a place where we are stuck in our research for a particular ancestor.  How do we get past these brick walls to keep our research going?  This presentation will discuss reviewing what we know and how we know it.  Then we look at strategies to help us like research logs, timelines, records to search, FAN and Cluster research, and proof arguments to bust through these struggles in our research.
