For several years now I’ve been been doing genealogy research for my family and my wife’s family. So far, things have gone well and I’ve been able to get quite a bit of information for immediate family members on both sides. Most often, it is easy get details back to grandparents or even great-grandparents. That’s where I start hitting brick walls. Sometimes it is easy to get frustrated and just give up. Well, a couple of days ago I came across this from gotgenealogy.com and it really helped to put things into perspective.
