Re: I am getting frustrated
In Response To: I am getting frustrated ()
I think one thing is to know that while you hope for an answer to your query, it may take month or years for some to respond to, should a response come. I have queries that have received responses quickly and others that were responded to well after I had placed them (months/a year or better). In the mean time, I continue to research and study up. If I'm stuck with a particular line, I go back and review what I've learned, and put it in line with anything new that I've found out. I show someone else or talk with someone (namely my Mom, even though she's not researching the family, she's helpful and interested) and see what they think or have them ask questions, questions and thoughts I may not have had. I've put work away on a couple of lines (although I tinker) because of this. I focus on another line and pick up the resting one later, with fresh eyes.
Wishing you the best!
