QDUNRAVELLegacy QuickGuide: Unraveling Brick Wall Mysteries 2.95
Chances are, if you have spent any time at all working to compile your family history, you have run into difficulty finding at least one elusive relative . . . maybe even several of them! Within the genealogy community this experience is commonly referred to as a “brick wall.” Some brick walls may seem impossible to solve; however, as my mother often told me, “Nothing in life is impossible, some things just take a little longer to accomplish than others.”
Seemingly complex problems can often be best solved if we break down these problems into smaller components. Whether you are new to genealogy, or have been researching for many years, try breaking down your problem into smaller steps and follow the easy back-to-basics Brick Wall Process. Ultimately, the secret to Unraveling Brick Wall Mysteries will rely upon the utilization of the three P’s: Process, Persistence and Patience.
The Unraveling Brick Wall Mysteries Legacy QuickGuide™ contains useful information including an outline of effective strategy, tips and tricks and links to resources. This handy 4-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
