Through Their Eyes

After using all the tried-and-true research strategies there are still some individuals that just can not be found! As far as researching individuals, we keep narrowing our field of vision until we have little hope of “seeing” anything new. But, if we stop and think about it and no longer try to use our own eyes, but turn around and use the eyes of the person we are investigating; we may “see” the solution. What did your mystery person see?

Backing Through the Brick Wall

Backing Through the Brick Wall" discusses researching descendants of someone. Usually we do not do that! But sometimes there is a good reason for going the opposite way! Maybe, finding some other descendant who may have that vital piece of information that can provide the clue or source that breaks through that brick wall!
