Family History Research

Wisdom Wednesday – May ProGen Update

Another month down in the 18 of ProGen Group 10.  In April we worked on transcriptions and abstracts. I used the will of a woman named Dorota Zajicek. When I got this probate file at the Cook County Clerk of the Circuit Court Archives I barely flipped through it before I started copying it. First of all after I read the will I realized this was not MY Dorota Zajicek. This woman was loaded! Mine was not. I copied the file anyway in case this family connected to mine at some point.  I transcribed the will and created my abstract.

This month we are using those transcripts to work on Certification and Accreditation by creating a research focus, analysis of data and forming a research plan. All things you would do if you were applying for BCG certification.

I worked on my assignment this morning and finished it. Will post it to the ProGen group this weekend. First need to get through our chat Thursday night for our April assignments.

Next month we are discussing Elizabeth Shown Mills’s Evidence Explained Chapter 1. Stay tuned for an update then.
