Where Did You Get Each Fact?

Find your source for each fact on your ancestor, determine:
  • do you have a source?
  • is the fact an "assumption?"

For each source:

  • is it primary or secondary
  • how reliable is it?

For some questions there's not a "right" or "wrong" answer, but thinking about where you obtained each piece of information may cause you to break that brick wall.
