Interesting. Basically I do the same thing, but I only have one project.<G>
But I rarely use pages of family data. I use websites that are
transcriptions of wills, deeds, etc. While there can be errors, they are
usually very accurate, and when you can't travel to another state for
research, the online sites are very helpful to further your research.

I agree that this thread is interesting. I hope others will hop in and share
what they do. No way is right or wrong, but rather we can learn a little
bit from each one shared. I would never have thought of handling it the way
you do.

I find the thread on sourcing to be interesting. It is one of those areas
where there is a lot of room for diversity. I tend to separate my philophies
sourcing by having two different kinds of projects. The first are something

for lack of definition, I shall call my "real" projects, the others are
I call "research" projects. In a "real project" I am very careful with
making sure I have sources that stand up to scrutiny. Dale
