I just wanted to offer some words of encouragement to those on the genealogical journey, DON’T GIVE UP! Genealogist are chosen and you have been chosen to give your ancestors a voice. Even if you haven’t found that document, that ancestor, or that connection to a relative you’re been looking for tirelessly, DON’T GIVE UP! Keep researching, you will find it when it’s time. Sometimes the answers we are looking for are already in the documents we have and we might have to take a break and look at them with fresh eyes as some say. Just stay positive and focused in your research, you this!
