    Great presentation…hint to record what you’ve done would have gone a long way to saving me time! I wish I had started earlier documenting sources. But no, I got into research and kept going down those hard to miss rabbit holes again and again!!

    Lots of great information. I need to follow Tara Shymanski’s suggestions. Right now, I need to learn to focus on one line of the family and one person at a time. That, for me, is one of my biggest problems. I’m easily distracted while researching and I get lost and start searching another ancestor. It’s quite frustrating.
