Back from my trip and I’m happy to report the first two generations of my Kinship Determination Project (KDP) is in draft form. Do you use Evernote? I use it on my Kindle to take notes at meetings but I’ve never used it while researching or for any of my other portfolio requirements. Maybe because I do use it at my primary job I had little trouble working on the KDP using Evernote on my Kindle. Who would have thought?! So now I have another place to access the document. I figure I can review it during down times where ever I might be. It’s getting to be quite long at this point so I won’t be able to review all of it during say, a lunch break, but my latest plan is to look it over daily and then devote the weekends to moving forward. My goal is to have the complete rough draft - all 3 generations - by the end of February and use spring break to seek out the few remaining records I’d like to find. They may not exist but unless I seek them out in person I won’t know for sure. I wouldn't be meeting the reasonably exhaustive search of the genealogical proof standard without knowing for sure!
I’m becoming so involved with the family I’m writing about I feel like I know them, even though I never met any of them and I’m not related to them. I’m looking forward to traipsing around in their footsteps when spring arrives. I would love to find a picture of generation 1 and 2. I have one of the couple in generation 3 but to find the trifecta, that would be awesome! I have a vision of what they looked like but who knows how accurate that can be.
