Video of the Week: Sharpen Your Family History Saw

Abraham Lincoln supposedly once said: "If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first four hours sharpening my axe."

This is the approach that our favourite video this week recommends. Except in this case, we don't want to chop down trees, but to build them.

This video, from Angela at The Beginning Genealogist, has some great tips for those starting out in family history. It's helpful because it recommends to take a step back and re-skill. Angela mentions a lot of friends who've been trying to break through genealogical brick walls for months and even years, but can't do so because they haven't got any new skills. Take her advice and you might avoid that fate!

It's got quite a few practical tips for progressing with your family history. Hope you like it!

  1. I am searching for information about my grandfather, John Odie Grindle or his
    brother Joseph Garner Grindle. They migrated from Gainesville(Hall
    County),Georgia to Clay County Alabama, between 1888 and 1910. My grandfather was listed as a bound boy with the George T. Hobbs family who lived close to the Sardis Methodist Cemetery. His brother Joseph was listed as a boarder with the William H. Hobbs family and later married Ella Hobbs and his family are all buried in the Sardis
    Cemetery. My endeavor is to discover who their parents were and to verify the
    connection and continue our genealogy. Any clues or information will be
    appreciated. I will be happy to share information which I have developed. I can
    be reached at 205-567-6705 or bobnora@bellsouth.net
