I wanted to show the way I once researched. I have posted the index cards of a self-interview from 2001 (some sections removed for privacy reasons,) an index card of my “to do” list, various Bibliography cards and a family data sheet. I still use family data sheets for family interviews. Slowly progressing to digital for all my research now.

Bye! Bye, old friends.  I’m getting ready for my new computerized version of you. Improved citations! Improved resourcing! Improved Tracking! Her I come.

This brings back the old Girl Scout song: Make New Friends

Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.
