Record Those Sources...Don't Make Me Tell You Again!

In a recent edition of his Online Genealogy Newsletter, Dick Eastman wrote an interesting piece about recording sources. Dick's history with this subject is like most of ours; that is, when we started out in genealogy we didn't pay as much attention to recording sources as we should have, and we regret it to this day.

Newbie or experienced researcher, you will find Dick's article informative. Perhaps it will give you the motivation you need to conscientiously source your findings. You can read his article at

Don't forget, the Pinellas Genealogy Society teaches a free class at the Largo Public Library on this very topic. Check the class calendar (near the top of the home page) at the PGS website for presentation dates. The site can be found at
