Polya's Four Step Process-Part I

Polya's Four Step Process-Part I
  • George Polya was a mathematician at Stanford University, where he developed a four-step process for solving mathematical problems. I'm doubtful that he was a genealogist. However, the process he outlined to assist math students in solving problems can easily be applied to genealogical situations as well. This week we discuss the process and see how it can be applied to a specific problem. In this case, it is a problem to which I fortunately have an answer already!
    Polya's process has four steps:
