Finally Doing Research in Maryland

Sign in to follow this  


20181125_183251.jpgI was reminded of the following quote as I put together a template for my Research and Calendar Plans:

          "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." - Unknown

For anyone who has a desire to read about this quote (with attempts to assign attribution) feel free to check that research out here.

The template itself did not remind me of this quote; it was the reason for making the template. I am certain that I have reviewed the same information multiple times to answer (or in some cases not answer) the same question. In solving some of the more difficult mysteries in my genealogy research, I needed to go beyond the research methods I had previously used. And reviewing the same source multiple times to find out it doesn't support my objective is basically the definition of stupidity.

After extensive research, reading multiple blogs, and checking out online forums; I realized that all my answers could be found in the chapter "Standards for Researching" in "Genealogy Standards" by the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

Check out the template I created to capture my research here. The associated timeline I created for my current mystery is here.
