Good point! In fact, honesty compels me to say that the same could be said
of my earliest research efforts. Fortunately, there were no online family
trees for me to upload to, no GEDCOM files to send to cousins, and no
Twitters for me to post to, so the harm was minimal!
>I don't know if this is of interest to anyone ... but given we've had
discussions about the joint workof historians and genealogists, I thought it
might be. The daughter of a friend is using a journal in my possession that
belongs to my husband's family as the basis for her senior research project
for her BA in history. Apparently her advisor has been very complimentary
and encouraging. It covers period of time of only a few months, but is very
interesting because of its detail of their travels from Indiana to
Mississippi by coach, train, and steamboat.
Fascinating. Has your husband's family taken any steps toward publishing the
journal -- perhaps an edited and annotated edition, if that's the direction
your friend's daughter is pursuing?
