When You Are Stuck, Make It About You

If you are stuck and at a complete brick wall on your problem ancestor, walk away and work on leaving something for your descendants. Take your next "genealogy time" and write about yourself, your childhood, your early adulthood, when you first voted for president (or why you didn't vote if you didn't), your favorite meal, etc. Your future relatives will thank you for it and you may come back to your problem with a fresh perspective.

And if you don't...at least you've left something for those who come after you.
