Does it count as a brickwall when you just happen to bump through it from the other side?

I was following up the four American-born children of my emigrated great grand-uncle Carl Abdon Lindström the other day - there was quite a lot to be found at FamilySearch with a bit of patience. When I entered the names and birth date for the youngest son I got a perfect match! - he was already in the tree. That's neat!

Now I just wish I could be as lucky with his sisters, Brita Cajsa, Anna Margareta, and Kristina Ulrika.

It happened to me once... and then I got a 8 generation pedigree collapse for free... it was well documented blacksmiths....

I feel we in the less populated swedish corner of WikiTree far away from the GEDCOM gravity center of WikiTree don't see this too often.... for us it's bigger chance to get a williams_andersforwikitree.ged profile that feels more as genealogy background noice

Congratulations and I love how you pose the question Eva; and that is a wonderfully supportive comment Magnus. Just shows there are multiple ways to solve a genealogy problem. Cheers!
