Can You State Your Problem?

Can you state your genealogical problem in one sentence? “I need to find Grandma” does not count. Your “problem” generally should involve one or perhaps two people, an event or a relationship you are trying to uncover, and perhaps a location where that event took place. You may need more verbiage to explain your problem, but what you are trying to uncover should fit in one sentence.

If nothing else, focusing your problem succinctly may give you some insight into solving it.
