Are You Avoiding the Difficult?

Do not limit your seach to only those records that are availble online or have indexes. Many valuable materials have not been digitized in any way and require manual searches. They may also be a learning   curve to learn how to use, access, and interpret them.

It may be worth it. That answer to your "brick wall" may be resting in an offline book with no index.

  1. So many invaluable records are kept locally with little chance of becoming digitized and available on the internet. You need to research on-location for a more complete family story.
