RMG, Good suggestion, I'll watch that Show.
It also jogged my memory that I have a scrap book of old NY Sunday newpapaer clippings about my favorite uncle Frank Dames that I must find. He was apparently a Company Clerk for Supply Co.308F, because there are typed records on onion-skin paper from May 26,1917-1918 recording departure from Camp Dix and to sailing with a troopship, on the White Star Line through September offensive on the Mozelle River. and a few rotogravure photographs also.
They need to be made available to be shared if necessary.
I have recently been going back and looking for "holes" in my research and documentation. many of my early entries, when I was just trying to get data in, have no documentation at all. I use Family Tree Maker and it has some custom reporting utilities, so for instance I can do a search of everyone in the US alive in 1880 that I do not have a census record for. I imagine the other programs also have similar fetures.
The show is great because it highlights other avenues of records. Its so easy to focus on the online databases
