Staring at brick walls won’t get you anywhere.

Door15Staring at brick walls won’t get you anywhere.
* step back
* consider what you may have missed
* change directions
* peek through a window to see what may lie beyond and work backwards
* take a break
* use your old keys and look for new keys (keys=sources)
* use your keys to unlock a door
* push it open even if it is only a crack
* the tiniest breakthrough is progress
* watch the bricks tumble
Does the genealogy problem you have seem too difficult to solve? Are you at a dead end? Are you climbing the wrong family tree? Tell me about your most challenging brick wall!

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 36 years with two grown children. When I’m not doing genealogy, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful countryside in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.
