Another brick wall solved
Wooohooo! Another brick wall mystery solved!
When I heard how it was solved, it made me feel that everything we’re doing here with our Legacy software and our webinar series is worth all the time and effort we put into it. And when I read of the excitement from someone who has just solved a genealogical puzzle, it lifts my spirits and gives me renewed hope for my lost ancestors.
