This is week five of my family history course and I would be hard pressed to tell you half of what I have learned.
Pedigree charts and family charts are great for getting started as well as keeping up. This week it has been suggested to create a time line for the person of interest.
Wow and I mean wow! I spent the day transferring as much as I knew about William Charles HARVEY, as well as any other information contained in the documents. I carefully added the references (I was becoming a bit overwhelmed with references) and transcribed the detail wherever possible. I added a column for clues and inserted a hint where something must have happened before, after or between the documents.
Lastly I wrote the results into my Family History Workbook and when I was finished I had uncovered and/or documented ten more clues. That’s right, ten more clues.
I am a happy researcher.
