Now to verify my cousin's information

OK, now I have the 1850, 1860, and 1870 census updated to my two lines, WEAVER and LANE.   I can now compare what I have previously complied with what my cousin just sent me to see how close we are in information.  This is where #SOURCE is critical -- did the information come from a primary, secondary, or tertiary source?   If the information is from the document provided by my cousin, then she is the source, which is tertiary -- I need to find proof.  But, it gets me moving again.   And, it builds on my #TO-DO List for when I am at Salt Lake City in February at #FGS2015 #RootsTech2015 .  Luckily, I plan to go early and have a few days at the Family History Center as well!!!!!

As soon as __________, I am going to ___________

Well, in this case it was as soon as Legacy 8.0 is released, I am going to go back and update all the census pages I have been collecting over the years.   I used the excuse since Legacy 8.0 allows you to share census (event) information across family members so you do not have to retype or copy and paste.

The best of intentions.   I did 1940.  I started 1930.  I got busy.   Then I received a note from a distant Weaver cousin which has me back in the 1850 - 1880 census records for the Weaver and Lane families.   It was a great kick in the pants.   Now, there are all those other lines that need to be caught up......
