Family History & Genealogy Research

Follow Friday: The Turning of Generations

leave a comment »

In the midst of finalizing and indexing the Mellen genealogy, I try to keep abreast of geneablogging. This week I found a new (to me) blog, called The Turning of Generations. The current theme on this wonderful piece of work is the 21st Century Organized Family Historian (#21COFH).

What’s interesting about 21COFH is that all genealogists can learn from reading about it. I’ve been working on digital organizing since I had an 8086 KayPro, so had to use very restrictive (nowadays, anyway) file names and directory structures. Eeew!

There seems to be a growing number of other folks reading and practicing the exercises for this theme, so I hope to learn something and perhaps contribute something when I’m more free from other concerns.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I hope you are eventually able to join in with 21COFH.

    PS I do remember those very restrictive file names back in the 8086 days. It seems like a file name could only be something like 8 characters long. Whatever it was Eeew is right!

    Also, I’m glad to know of a Seattle area researcher as that is where I am from and occassionally I need to do research there. It can be a challenge from Arizona.
