Brick Wall Strategies for Dead-End Family Trees [1]

  • Review What You Already Have - Organizing your files and reviewing your facts may uncover just the clue you're looking for.
  • Go Back to the Original Source - Many of us are guilty when transcribing information or recording notes of only including the facts we deem important at the time.
  • Broaden Your Search - When you can't find a birth record for your ancestor that lists his/her parents, maybe you can locate one for a sibling.
  • Question and Verify - Many brick walls are built from incorrect data.
  • Check Name Variations - Get creative with name spellings and variations and cover all the possibilities.
  • Learn Your Boundaries - Town, county, state and even country boundaries have changed over time.
  • Ask for Help - "Fresh eyes can often see beyond brick walls."
