I’;ve done that too, Paula. Anyone who writes historicals runs into it. Start a spread sheet of important facts. I do mine on One Note (Office 2010) but Excell would work too. Tab different subjects so they’;re easy to find again. Makes it such a relief. Of course, there are always a few things you miss, but on the whole, I find the important things are at my fingertips (or eye tips).
Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Very helpful information particularly the last part I care for such information much. I was looking for this particular info for a long time. Thank you and good luck.
