My recommendations this week. As usual, I normally pick one or two good posts from my week's readings, or left from the prior week! Hope they are useful or at least interesting to you, as well! If it is your first visit, even better! ;-)
I am pleased to again recommend a fine post by Dan Curtis - Professional Personal Historian: "What I've Learned About Getting "Truthful" Interviews."
The post is directed at the personal history interview, but the seven point discussion really speaks to all of the genealogy and family history research we do on our family and ancestors as well, in my view. We want the "truth" - but does the "whole truth and nothing but the truth" always contribute in a positive way to what we hope to accomplish in our research and especially in our sharing of our family story?
I do not mean to suggest we "not seek the truth." To the contrary, following the context Dan builds with his seven points, I believe, provides us a better framework within which to tell our family stories.
What to you think? ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
