September 26 - Pick an Ancestor to research

September 26 - Select someone in your family tree you haven't researched. See how much you can find on him or her using just the Internet — you may be surprised.

I like doing this with my brick wall ancestors. I try to pick one day a year for each brick wall ancestor and try searching for stuff on the internet. I have broken through several brick walls because others who are researching the same person might have finally posted something on the internet for me to find. Or new records are updated or added to sites that have my ancestor in them. 

Never give up on your brick walls, but taking a break from them is very useful.
