Warning: Genealogy Chaos Ahead — 8 Comments

    • I sympathise Linda – I find that kind of activity so boring too. Only way I can get through it is to do it while watching tv or listening to an audiobook

  1. I can’t tell you how much I enjoy hearing about your study in the video that you uploaded at the One Name Guild site. It’s one of my favourite reruns! I always recommend it to new researchers.
    Re: Organization. Years ago I finally found my secret to organization from a popular motorcycle journal that was popular in the 80’s. I called my method “Zen and the art of Genealogical Maintenance”. Literally based on some pointers in the actual book by Persig, I applied to my genealogical matters :

    “You look at where you’re going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you’ve been and a pattern seems to emerge”

    “The pencil is mightier than the pen”

    “For every fact there is an infinity of hypotheses”

    And I add, love the journey! Great blog, by the way. Thanks for sharing your One Name Journey.

    • Hi Magda, so glad to hear the video was helpful to you. I wish I’d had something like that when I started my Heenan study – there is a lot of info available but I found so much of it confusing and contradictory. Love your Zen approach by the way! It would make a great article for the Journal
