Reviewing Your Files

How often do you review your family files? Do you abandon a family when you run into a road block, never to return? I've found that a little time away from a family and then a return review often reveals clues I missed.  Keeping a log in each family file is a handy trick, too. The log shows the last time the file was checked, clues previously missed, if any,  and a plan of attack (i.e. research plan). Clues probably won't be found every time the file is reviewed, but it keeps the information fresh in my mind.
