This was a really high-tech approach I took to note taking while I was at the Family History Library last May and June. I was working in some Boston, Mass., records and to keep myself from getting confused, I took pictures of the index entries for the estates I needed. Then those pictures were pasted into Word and I created a table alongside the image and added columns for:
- FHL roll number
- copied or not
Not overly sophisticated, but it served my purpose and made creating citations easier later. I then took a picture of my notes to save as an image along with the actual images I made of records.
We’re hoping to include some issues of Casefile Clues using the records from Boston.
