Linguistic Tools for Your “Brick Wall Demolition Kit”
Discover linguistic tips, tricks and resources that can help you find your most elusive ancestors. Brick walls can sometimes be an obstacle that has more to do with language than anything else. We will explore how the language of our ancestors, as well as the language of the areas they lived in, can affect the results we find.
