Brick Wall Busters (2015)

Our Sixth Annual "Brick Wall Busters" session was held on 12 November 2015.

Members were asked to submit Brick Wall Queries. Six queries were selected for Dr. Allan Marble, C.G.(C) and Virginia "Ginny" Clark, C.G.(C) to analyze and make suggestions for how to further the research and hopefully, break down the Brick Walls.
