Are you checking the same sites almost too regularly, hoping for an update? Are you posting queries to message boards and other sites, hoping to find something or get a helpful reply? Consider changing your approach or spending less time on the Internet or more time on different sites.
My Ancestry.com subscription lapsed and eventually I will renew it. But now that I don’t have 24/7 access to it, I am getting back into records I had ignored for too long and even reviewing my files. And when I do have access to Ancestry.com I make better use of it and am more efficient because I know I don’t have it constantly. And frankly some days I spent too much time “randomly” searching on Ancestry and not enough time really researching.
