Beginner genealogists often research their surname origins first and get stuck at a certain point. The skills needed to surmount these early brick walls come in time, with study and practice, and the increasing availability of DNA and online resources. In this webinar, I describe my brick wall ancestor, Samuel Morehead, of Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana, and the techniques that I used to identify his parentage and place of origin. Sticky problems like this require a variety of approaches including Y-DNA analysis, the FAN club, tax, land and court records, censuses, historical analysis, and mapping techniques, to name a few. I will detail the clues acquired from all of these methods as I developed a hypothesis to satisfy the Genealogical Proof Standard.
