The conversation started out something like this,
Karen: "So tell us what you do when you find them? type in the whole thing? Scan it? hmmmmmmmm???????? inquiring minds want to know..."
Carol: "I just got cheap lately and don't want to use the paper or spend the $$ for the ink. So, I click back and forth between the image and RM. I figure if I have the image linked, I can always revisit if I get that sinking feeling that I missed something!"
Karen: "I pick it apart, major stuff, dates, informant, burial location, parents, a bit of everything..."
Anne: "Nope. Birth date, death date, burial date, cause of death. Locations. Parents. Spouse if available. No, I do not do a line by line."
The conversation morphed over to other things, and so it goes, the Wild Ones, chatting away, comparing, learning from each other, inspiring each other. Karen has decided this should now be called, Annespiration. How's that make ya feel Anne, an inspiration to the Wild Ones! We usually find that after talking about how we do something, we are inspired to work, work, work away!
