500 Brickwall Solutions to Genealogy Problems, by Family Chronicle Magazine; 418 pg; Paperback; ISBN 978-0-9731303-1-7; 2003; Item MM002
Breakthrough your toughest research problem
Did you hear about the researcher who discovered her ancestor in the census under her MIDDLE name, not her surname? What about the genealogist who hit paydirt from an ad placed in a small Nebraska newspaper? Then there was the sleuth who found his way to an ancestor's gravestone only after learning that the road to the burial ground had been moved? In each case, a family historian was able to overcome an obstacle in his/her path by devising or falling upon an ingenious solution.
The popular genealogy magazine Family Chronicle refers to these creative breakthroughs as "Brickwall Solutions," breakthroughs on seemingly insurmountable research problems--problems that threatened to bring one's research to a close. Over the years, dozens of "Brickwall Solutions," including the three referred to above, have graced the pages of Family Chronicle. While each of these examples of genealogical ingenuity relates to particular genealogists' issues, in the aggregate they illustrate the range of strategies available to us through genealogical detective-work and perseverance.
Now everyone can benefit from these success stories, for Family Chronicle has published them in a new book entitled, 500 Brickwall Solutions To Genealogy Problems. 500 Brickwall Solutions runs the gamut of conundrums that real genealogists faced and overcame. Fully indexed, over 400 pages in length, and featuring more than 250 black-and-white illustrations, this excellent book shows how genealogists, through any number of methods, have vaulted their genealogical barriers.
