About this webinar

Being the recognized originator of the term “Writing as You Go” since 2009, Elissa Scalise Powell, CG, CGL finds that people who adopt and adapt the process report that it really an efficient way to plan, record, and analyze research findings. Although the static concepts are standard, her recommendations on the placement and process order in which to work needs to be demonstrated and is often a “light bulb” moment for researchers.

    A good webinar, but it’s more about “writing” than “as you go”. In other words, the presenter shows a lot of what goes in to the writing, and then may offer a short tidbit advice on how to do it “as you go”. Examples of “as you go” are even fewer than the tidbits of advice.

    Very informative webinar. Elissa, your tips and suggestions were wonderful! I wish I had known some of this years ago. Although I’m well organized now, it would have saved me so much backtracking in my early genealogical days. Thank you so much!

    I always like Elissa Scalise Powell’s presentations. She reminds me to take notes on my notes and sources. It can be as simple or as complex as you like, but do it. Thanks again! Sarah M. It’s never too late to start over, and by that I mean start over and document all your sources before moving forward and collecting even more information.
