Solvable brick walls fall into 3 categories

The first type of brick wall has to do with how you organize the data you have collected.  I will be giving you some ideas on how to manipulate your data to see if some answers magically appear.  The second one has to do with how knowledgeable you are about the records that are actually available for your location and time period (HINT – Everything is not online!).  I will show you how you can find this information.  The third type of brick wall isn’t near as difficult as it sounds.  We will be talking about the Genealogical Proof Standard which will be your best tool for this.   In this series I will be giving you some general strategies as well as some specific little tricks to break down your brick walls.
