I am currently working on my NGS-home study course lesson 2 and am starting to obsess on it a little. This assignment involves analyzing a family story.
The basic story is that we are distantly related to a certain singing cowboy from back in the day. Other Autrey family searchers seem convinced that the story is true, however in my search so far I have been unable to confirm their findings.
Here is what I need to do this week:
1. Stop obsessing over which Cornelius is the likely common ancestor.
2. Don't worry about having a cite for each and every believed fact.
The point of this exercise to to evaluate what I have uncovered,
not to prove something beyond a reasonable doubt.
3. Cover the highlights of the story and whether they mesh with the facts.
4. Write the summary, no more than two pages, and submit it.
