Here's good advice that applies to genealogy as well as life: don't judge a book by its cover. Always be prepared to go beneath the surface—dig deeper with your family history searches and find as many genealogy records about your ancestors as you can. And then read them all, thoroughly. You never know what you'll find!
Genealogy requires patience, digging through various resources looking for family history information. And then the moment comes when you finally smash through a brick wall that has long challenged you—in this case, the breakthrough was finding a newspaper obituary about my Revolutionary War ancestor.
