Help -- going in too many ancestor directions, need focus
Posted by: Morgen O'Connell (ID *****7428) Date: June 03, 2002 at 15:36:20

I have hit the point where all the family feelers I have put out are paying off with information. I find I lack focus to follow each one through fully. Whenever I get a new piece of information (often from a different branch of the family), it completely distracts me from what I was doing. I have read "Organizing Your Family History Search" which helped and sections of several other basic genealogy books on organization and follow through. Any suggestions?
