I am embarrassed to admit this but I have over 100 items sitting in my shoebox on Ancestry.com. I wish I had some great story as to why they are sitting there. The reality is I have put the records in the shoebox because I am too busy pinball researching in the late hours of the night. (Dear Myrtle wrote a great post about Pinball Genealogy in January. Read about it here and here.) I am shocked at how many great records are waiting for analysis and a citation.
In an effort to stop any further lazy behavior and practice better researching skills, I have decided to clean out my shoebox. If it is empty, I will be less likely to toss records into my box of shame.
I am hoping to post on Thursdays fairly regularly with the items I am recovering from that genealogy purgatory. Hope you enjoy!
