I hate brick walls. Let me rephrase that. I love historic brick and mortar masonry – but the proverbial brick walls that I run into in genealogy frustrate me. I have found that sometimes I have to change to another branch of the family tree and come back to my problem person. A little time away sometimes helps me to look at the subject with a fresh perspective, a better attitude, and renewed diligence.
**This particular wall was in the historic town of El Grove, California
