We provide information about how to research ancestors both on the Internet and in libraries and other repositories. Besides how, we will show you where—locations for free and inexpensive information and the relative value of each.See More

I am posting this on both of your walls; I hope it tells the Genealogy Wise world what a great help you both are.
I was teasing when I complained about buying another book. I told my husband about Producing a Family History, by Patricia Law Harper on Tuesday morning; he promptly ordered it and now I'm the happy owner of a new-to-me guide to improving my skills in Genealogy. I have read the chapter "What to Write; When to Write It" almost like reading a novel. But, truly, I'm treating this book more seriously than that I may just make working copies of ALL the checklists as I apply different chapters to my work.
Thank both of you again for an interesting presentation which led me to owning a very useful book.
I completely missed your presentation on Cluster researching ... how could I have ever done that!!!!
Do you have a transcript available on that presentation? I really wanted to be available for that chat because I have had to rely on brothers and sisters information in order to put my husband's g grandfather within that family group. Word of mouth was that he belonged in that family but when I went to research it, I found most of the family including the parents who came over from Scotland in 1821 (The Lanark Society Settlers) but no sign of him. I found him in another county but rumours where that he left at a young age to go to another county. It wasn't until one of the sisters put a notice in the newspaper that their brother, who had moved away, had recently died. Cluster research is very important and I really wanted to learn more about it!
If I am unable to obtain your transcript notes, would you be putting that presentation on again?
I really enjoyed your chat presnetation the other day. Will there be a transcript posted of it? I didn't take notes thinking there would be. I loved that you gave sources to use too! I didn't even know about the research outlines on familysearch!!!!! I have several of them downloaded already.
