BRICK WALL SERIES NUMBER 2
Spotlight on Brick Wall Strategies-
Mind Mapping, Separating Same-named People and Transcribing to Mine Data
by Kim Richardson
THIS IS PART 2 OF 4 PART SERIES ON BRICK WALLS
We will review nine ways to solve tough genealogy problems and brick walls in this series. There are four sessions. Each session is about an hour long. Session 1 is an overview and introduction. Each of the other sessions will introduce three strategies and give examples of each strategy.
Each session in the series can be viewed by itself. This second session of the Brick Wall Series will focus on these 3 strategies:
Mind mapping is a great tool! It allows you to map, draw out, or diagram related information and thoughts. The process can lead to new ideas and clues to solve that tough genealogy problem. Plus, it's fun!
Separating Same-named People
People with the same name in the same place at the same time can cause confusion. Separating and detangling them will help solve tough genealogy problems.
Transcribing to Mine Data
Transcribing is usually not thought of as the most fun activity in genealogy. But it is one of the best ways to slow down and examine information a little bit at a time. When you take it word by word, you can find clues to answer your genealogy question that you missed previously.
