Research Tip - Put It Aside

A more experienced researcher gave me some advice when,  as a novice genealogist, I became frustrated when faced with a brick wall. "Back away," she said,  Put that family aside and work on another family for at least a month. Then go back to the first family and you will see things you missed before."  She was right and this technique continues to be one of my main strategies when I become frustrated in my research. 

Try it. You may just find it will work for you, too.
