If you have read the “Methods & Sources” articles by Leslie W. Tomlinson, Certified Genealogist and SAGHS member, in our Newsletters, you might want to add our newest book to your personal library.
Breaking Through Walls expands upon the articles and includes new material. It contains great instructions on researching one’s genealogy. Plus it just might be your ‘go-to’ book for tips on how to break through those brick walls.
