Kathleen welcomes Angela Rodesky (of Delaware) to discuss a relative that is hiding behind a brick wall. Who was Cornelia Grey and why was she so unwanted in the community where she lived? Family folklore collides with data and research in this first episode of Hittin' the Bricks. But Angela needs to be ready with a pencil. As Kathleen always says, this is a Do it yourself (DIY) genealogy podcast. “Ill show you where the shovel is, but I'm not digging up your family.”
