Have You Interacted with a Live Human on That Problem?

You have a genealogical problem. It does not really matter what it is. Have you interacted with another human being on that problem? Either asked a relative if they knew something; asked a question about the problem on a message board, mailing list etc. Have you discussed your problem with someone who knows something about the area and time period in which you are researching?

If the only person you've interacted with is the "person" inside your head---discuss the problem with someone else. You may be surprised at the result.

  1. Totally agree. I gave a presentation Wednesday evening & talked about blogging as a way to talk to others about issues and brick walls. I hope some people use that as one way of working through things.

    I try to seek out my peeps on Twitter or my real life local buddies when I need help. The voice inside my head doesn't always have the answer. LOL!
