Everybody engaged in family history research goes through the process at some time of asking themselves the following questions;
|•||Where did I read about that?|
|•||I have it here somewhere, but where did I put it? What did I put it under?|
|•||I am sure that I have seen that name before?|
... And the list goes on.
Many family history software packages on the market today will allow the recording of references to external documents specific to a person. These external documents are often stored in filing systems which are usually accessed through manually maintained indexes or by the application of a referencing system with inherent significance in its structure, sometimes very complex, or by recording a reference at source level.
But what do you do with the tidbits not directly associated with individuals or families? For example, articles on convict living conditions; Ships arriving into Moreton Bay in 1875; Items that catch your eye on one of the many discussion groups that you subscribe to; The mounting collection of e-mails surrounding a person or family but where there is still insufficient information to confirm your suspicions; A letter from Aunt Mary, etc.
