What I learned from breaking down my brick wall.
- Searching nearby counties also means counties in the next state
- unsourced information can lead to a big breakthrough, do not overlook 1 thing
- keep blogging, the more you get out there, the more people will read
- readers of said blog can have the mystery piece of information you need
- be persistent, leave no stone unturned
- be thorough in all you do
- recheck the web sites that you already checked, they get updated
- the more you search, the more family you will find
- its ok to ask for help
- be patient, it can take another 10 years to go back 1 more generation!
