<< Thanks for the mention of necessary details. I'm learning, thanks to you
pros. I've already got some new details, but not enough.
Be sure to keep a GOOD (GREAT) reference on your discovery of
information---------a good way to tell if you have enough reference: Can you
write a reference that someone can discover the same info you have?
We had a house fire June 1998 and I lost a lot of papers--but I had great
refs and was able to get right back to the copies and retrieve copies form
cousins with my ref's.
So" Don't be Lazy" you have already spent a lot of time and will spend more,
write down everything. Spare no cost when making copies of items----be sure
to make a copy of the title page and attache to your material. Date this as
to where you located this info and when. I make 4 copies of the good stuff.
One to store in a plastic sleeve and the other to use as a work copy to write
all over and make notes on....and the other 2 to trade...and it goes on and
on and so do I.
