Many forensic genealogy cases may end up stalling out or languishing due to difficulties related to the age or ethnicity of the target individual, or a limited budget or available hours for the case to be worked.  Departments may have genealogists inform them that the case is not workable.  All forensic genealogy cases are theoretically solvable (given enough time and resources), and students need real cases to work on to prove their skills and learn to creatively innovate to solve any number of puzzles that might arise during forensic genealogy research.  Departments who have these kinds of cases can submit them for “triage” directly to FG4LE, where students can reevaluate the case, organize any previous research associated, and continue to work with fresh eyes while under the directions of an experienced lead forensic genealogist.
