Phase one: complete

The big genealogy source-record data entry project has reached a milestone: just now I finished the last of the vital records (Catherine Ziegler & Jacob Maurer’s marriage license). I have 121 of them, according to Reunion.

(I suppose I’m not completely finished with the vital records – I have birth certificates for Jake, Sam & myself, plus a marriage license for Jennifer & me. I never scanned those, so I’ll have to fish them out of the closet sometime.)

Next up: obituaries & newspaper articles. I have a lot of these, probably two or three times as many items as vital records.

I need to figure out what fields to have in my Newspaper source record. Or maybe I need several different Newspaper source records, for the various kinds of newspaper articles: obituaries, death notices, news items, etc.. Must contemplate this further.
