TravelGenee #atozchallenge Z – Zoe
I promised myself I would do a short post as I deserve to go to bed early for some zzz zzz’s.
This post is about Zoe. I alway thought that Zoe is such a neat name. I knew little about her except for family stories so I investigated her family for the University of Tasmania family history course.
Zoe is the name our family used however once I started researching I discovered her actual name was Olwen Zoe KITTO, born on 3 Dec 1908 at 25 Austin Street, Wellington.
I reported my studies in 3 posts:
- Studying Family History at University – A summary of what learned.
- A family history story: “They Left the Family Money to the Cattery”. Read this to find out more about Zoe and our family stories. Being more formal research for my studies this post has the biggest set of sources for any of my posts, ever.
- Family History Research Conclusions – Comments and thoughts on my learnings.
“My conclusions can be summarised to never hold assumptions dear or bias your research on unsubstantiated views. Be objective, methodical and follow the research rule to verify the facts.”
So that’s it and now I have to spend time making my “creatively challenged” graphic on Canva.
OK one last thought:
I am wondering how other bloggers balance the perfection required with genealogical sourcing to enable others to be able to check your research with keeping posts visually pleasant and manageable as writing up sources takes so much time.
