So, I'm sure that I'm not the only person who has hit a wall in their genealogy research at one point or another. Most of the time, a lack of record is what results in it, but what about when a record gives little to no useful information?
Also, has anyone ever run into a record that either displays false information? For instance, I found a death record from the early 1900s that referred to one of my relatives by a nickname, as well as reporting false information of the birthplace/parent's birthplace. It's almost as if whoever filled it out was too lazy to collect the CORRECT information. However, when it comes to early records mixed with online records, it is difficult to determine which record to believe.
I'm not even sure that anyone is going to read this, but if you do, please provide some input! Thank you.
