Genealogical Society Will Hear “Brick Wall” Specialist

LIBERTY, May 14, 2014 - The Liberty County Genealogical Society will meet Tuesday, May 20th at 10:00 a.m. in the DAR meeting room behind the historic Cleveland-Partlow house on Grand Avenue.  The guest speaker will be Linda Hale of Lumberton, a popular speaker and specialist on genealogical “brick walls.”  Ms. Hale is on the board of the Hardin County Historical Commission, a member of the Hardin County Genealogical Society and has worked on many Hardin County preservation projects.  She heads an ongoing program to help family researchers and genealogists with “brick walls” in their family trees.  Brick walls are areas of research that cannot be solved through the normal process of following the paper trail of records to establish identity of ancestors.  When researchers reach this road block or “brick wall,” research comes to a halt.  Ms. Hale is an expert on finding other helpful sources and uncovering alternative means to get around these road blocks and will share this information with LCGS members and guests.  She states, “knowing the location of your ancestor is key, but knowing the history of the location can open many research clues to get past your brick wall and it is vital to locate the sources you need.”  Linda Hale will share tips she has discovered in over 20 years of genealogical research and solving these difficult issues and will share information to help others unlock their “brick walls!” 

The Liberty County Genealogical Society meets on the third Tuesday of each month.  Guests are welcome!  For more information, please email Brent Reeves: .
