Knocking down a brick wall genealogy problem takes a good strategy. I recently spoke with professional genealogist Kathleen Brandt for tips on how she helps her clients break down brick walls.
Kathleen is the founder and chief researcher at a3 Genealogy. She has done behind-the-scenes research for Who Do You Think You Are, (she was in front of the camera in the Tim McGraw episode!), Finding Your Roots, AARP Magazine, Jet, and many others.
She has a 3-pronged strategy for approaching brick wall problems. (The second part of her strategy might surprise you!)
