Hygienealogy and Scaffolding in the Time of COVID

April 15, 2020

The world is upside down, and even those of us who work from home are a bit, shall we say, off. I know that I am having trouble with concentrating. Are you? Today is an off-the-cuff episode. I'm discussing my solutions for the problem of being distracted and worried while needing to stay involved with my volunteer and personal genealogical work. I'm engaging in hygienealogy and scaffolding. Listen, then let me know how you're handling your family history and genealogical research in the time of COVID. You can find me at Patreon, on Twitter, on my Facebook page and in the Facebook group created just for podcast listeners.
