I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and took advantage of visiting with family. Perhaps you were able to identify someone in a picture or were able to acquire a document that will help you with your search. One of the things I did was to try to get rid of excess paperwork. I came across an ancestor chart that I had printing out a few years ago. As I read it, I came across several errors, contradictory dates and notes that were incomplete. I thought it was a wonderful way to check my work. Perhaps you should try this?
