Okay, okay! I need to do better? I have written many posts about a particular brick wall ancestor. I love blogging about him in hopes of connecting with others. I have exchanged numerous emails about him and discussed a number of theories. I have notes and partial narratives written in several places. Let's just say, it's starting to become a little confusing.
So I decided to compile all of these little notes and such into on document. Sure, some folks you ever note, but I am 'old school'? I dumped everything into a word document.
Want to know how big the file is? 57 pages. About 5 pages would be referenced photos if they were all grouped together. But, this is 50 pages of information about a man I only have tracked down from 1856 to 1863!
Much of the information is repetitive. I thought his story and notes would be a simple corralling of maybe 10 pages of notes and such. Boy was I wrong. I suppose I have written more about him than I had realized. Is it enough for a pamphlet/book? Is it too much fluff? We'll see. #genealogy #ohmygoodness
