We leave a footprint with the Government that cannot be erased. If your Ancestor ever immigrated to the United States, served in the armed forces, worked for the railroad or collected social security there is a record.

Brick wall research blocks are inevitable. We strive to start with ourselves and work backwards, but sometimes there are impediments that stop us in our tracks. It is then that we must use our most creative research skills, and it is essential that we move to other family members. That means researching our ancestors' siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins, and the collateral lines with which they are connected.
