Off to a good start
After burrowing into my research to begin to nail down some of my evidence, I began trying to write what I had just reviewed and wound up with 569 semi-coherent words. Or rather 569 words, grouped into semi-coherent paragraphs. It's difficult to lay out the evidence clearly without getting list in a maze of explanations as to why I think I have found the right person who was Minnie's brother John and how to track people from house to house via directories and censuses when the street names have changed. But this feels like a good start, and I feel more confident about my conclusions as I write.
