The brick wall chats will be a collaborative discussion. That will take a few steps to work properly.

  1. Submit your brick wall via blog post or email to editor@theindepthgenealogist.com by the first friday of the month. Please add "brick wall for idgchat" in the subject line.
  2. We will compile these into a blog post on the IDG blog and posted the second Monday of the month.
  3. Brick wall discussions will take place on the third friday on the month, unless otherwise noted (see July schedule).
  4. A follow-up post will be posted the fourth week of the month on the IDG blog.

Remember to follow @Indepthgen, @JenniferAlford and @Tracingmyfamily on Twitter so that you will see all the updates on #IDGChat throughout the year.

We look forward to chatting with all of you in the New Year!
