Love of the Hunt

What are brick walls in the Genealogy world? Are you at one today? As family researchers we all hit a brick wall at one time or another. What is a brick wall? It is a place in our research where we are stuck, can’t go any further, tried everything. What do we do about breaking through that brick wall?
Lets explore a few options:
Write down in story format what you have already learned such as..grandpa was a farmer who lived from ...in such a county and state..he married ..... on ....and had 10 children, get the gist of the story? As you write you will be able to review and organize your work. With this method, you will find holes in your story that you need to do further research on.
