Changing Your Mindset to Break Down Your Brick Walls 

    You are not a genealogist until you’ve become stuck finding a relative! So, what do we do when we are stuck? We put that research away and start working on another relative, until the same thing happens again.

    This presentation will help you to pull out that previous work and change your mindset to look differently at your research.  We will discuss how to check the research you have done; how to best organize the work so you know exactly what you have researched; and most importantly the presentation will offer five mind-changing ideas to utilize when you find yourself with a genealogical brick wall.
