...I come across a couple in my research and I know I've seen something on them before but I just can't put my finger on where.
Surely I made notes about them. But where is the note? Certainly kept that marriage date with her maiden name on it somewhere?
Maybe in one of my filing cabinets?
I got really tired of this. SO a few years ago I started a spreadsheet, nothing fancy just names, dates, places, source & notes for the main names in my research of interest. One focus name per sheet.
So now when I come across a marriage record I record it on my spreadsheet, along with all pertinent information that goes with it - date, place, bondsman, witnesses, parents names etc along with the source on my spreadsheet.
Never again do I wonder, now where did I put that little piece of paper with that marriage information???
Don'tcha wish all genealogy problems were solved that easily??
