There is SO much good information on the Genealogy Do-Over FB group! There is the benefit of centuries of combined research experience from over 1800 members. Better make that millennia of experience! Everyone is excited and united in their goals for doing better, doing more efficient, doing more accurately, and doing over, or at least going over.
When Thomas posted the challenge a few weeks ago the timing was perfect. I just got the new version of Legacy and planned to reenter all my dead people, one at a time. And enter the citations properly and completely. And split up my files so I have only my ancestors in one file, and separate files for my One-Name study and whatever other random people are populating my database. And I want to change my process so that I only enter people when I know that they belong. And wouldn’t it be great to use one of these software tools that the Do-Over-ers are talking about? But which one? I bought CLOOZ, but after watching the videos I still haven’t a CLOO how to use it. The Evidentia video looks promising but would I be taking on another steep learning curve?
So today I feel like I’m drowning in a sea of information.
I think the thing to do is to go back to my priorities. Look at what IS working in my current process and go from there. Perhaps over the next dozen weeks I will be ready to add new software and different process steps. Or it may take longer.
But right now I hear Thomas’s tune “Slow down, you move too fast . . .” playing in my head.
Remember the goals. Take it slow. And learn to walk before I swim. 😉
