Join us as we find out how our Adopt a Brick Wall projects concluded from November!

A tip from another genealogical group sounds like something we could take advantage of…
I am sure each of you has found a brick wall at some point in your research from which you have either
faced severe frustration or have totally put aside without completion. So a little help from your friends
may be just the solution you need to get back on track.
The suggestion is that everyone should bring one of his/her brick walls to the next meeting, along with
copies of last known facts, family group sheet for problem area and one for descendent. At that meeting
each one draws a name of a member and is given the brick wall info needed. Each of us then will
research the problem from our own resources and tricks and bring the info back with us to the next
meeting when this discovered info can be shared. Each one will make a brief report of what we found
and hand it off to the person to whom it belongs.
The other group called this ADOPTION and since we all research differently, there is no telling what could
be located. Adoption not only assisted with member research and technique, it will bring us closer to
the heart of our focus here.
As our very next meeting will also be our nominating meeting, this will be a perfect rounding out of the
meeting. Please commit to this for a really good time and progress of our purpose. With our Christmas
art being the following month, we can actually have an extra time to do the research without stressing
and make our presentations in January as a whizbang start of a new year.
