I've been researching my Family History for some years now, and I LOVE every minute of it. However I have got to the point now where I have found out so much information that my brain is ready to explode. So unlike a lot of bloggers, who start at the beginning of the journey, I'm wading into the blogging scene fairly late in the game. There is logic to my madness though, (I hope!)
Like most people, the way I researched at the start of my journey horrifies me today. I was so naive that ancestors were who they said they were; that the memories of older relatives were absolute truths; (how could they have possibly embellished stories?) and that everyone should be exactly where they said they were. O how my experience has changed that way of thinking!
So I'm planning to go back to the beginning, rechecking all of the information, and making sure that I have evidence to back everything up and hoping that i haven't committing any of the great sins of genealogy. Keeping you updated along the way will no doubt help to keep my brain in one piece (well that is the plan) as well as keeping the information all together. The amount of notebooks I have with information scattered through-out and in no particular order is terrifying!
