I know it is a unusual title to start this.
I wanted to share what I have been doing recently. I know many of us have huge watchlists.
I started thinning mine out but I leave breadcrumbs.
I have been going alphabetically through my watchlist and completing the bios. I have been trying to use free sites as the sources where I can. My narratives are not that great but I add what I can. I also add images where I can
I have cleaned up the gedcom leftovers, added the sources which can be verified by checking the links to the records. On some that are not on a free site I try to include the certificate number (this makes it so others can find the information).
I include the spouse name and dates if I dont have a profile for them. Link to parents if a profile exists or add the id in the bio if I cannot link them up. I include the parents DOB and DOD. I list the siblings if known also.
Add categories if I can find them.
IF I have added all I can and they are not direct line I remove myself as manager. This makes the profile readily adoptable to others. With the breadcrumbs I can go back later and add the other family members if I have the time or others with the info I have provided can do so.
So are you leaving breadcrumbs?
