The Brick Walls

Every full episode of The Family Histories Podcast includes a segment where our guest shares one of their research dead ends – a ‘brick wall’. These are inevitable in family history due to records being lost, hidden, damaged, or a whole plethora of reasons, and these brick walls can stand in your way for anything between a few hours and seemingly forever.

Here’s a list of the brick walls that our guests have shared so far. Click to find out more and listen to their podcast episode for free.
