In Response To: What Does Deed Tell Me? ()

Greetings Sonya
Taking a look at your 'brickwall' and do recommend that you begin the family story by completing a family group sheet [FGS] for each head of household [HOH] you choose to include in your immediate research plan. That will also assist us to better help you make that plan if we have an understanding of family relationships.
