Five Brick Wall Busting Quick Tips

Whenever I am faced with a perplexing brick wall in the search for my ancestors, I review these five quick tips:

1. Check in unlikely places for information
2. Be open to all possibilities
3. Review all of your research data and then review it again; perhaps you missed something
4. Believe in serendipity (sometimes the information will present itself to you in a way that is
unexplainable (see the book Psychic Roots by Hank Jones for examples).
5. Never give up!
