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.
