Even the most skilled genealogist hits a brick wall in their research. That aloof, evasive relative that managed to dodge the census takers, avoid immigration records and seemingly was never buried upon their demise. 

I have been using Twitter to try to assist people with their ” .”  I follow the hashtag #genealogy, and when one of my fellow researchers shares their frustration of hittin’ the wall, I offer to help.  Yes, sometimes all it takes is a fresh set of eyes on old, old data.  So the next time you have hit the wall, ask for help.

When using Twitter be sure to use the the hashtags, #genealogy and #brickwall.  Hopefully someone will assist you.  If you receive a random act of kindness be sure to pass it on.  If you are not using Twitter feel free to post your brick wall or road block on this blog.

 With that said, I have a brick wall that I need help on.  I have researched every avenue possible that I can think us using standard genealogical research protocol.

 Here is the background on my brick wall:

William Gardiner was born in Ireland @ 1796 he arrived in America between 1819 and 1823.  I have census records& naturalization records to substantiate birth year and year that he became a citizen.  I have not been able to locate immigration record and family stories state that he was a stow-away.  Would love to know where he came from in Ireland.
