Brick Wall Busters (2016)
Our Seventh Annual "Brick Wall Busters" session was held on 22 November 2016.
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.
