While It is Fresh In Your Mind

Write it down while it’s fresh in your head. Doesn’t matter what it is, you will forget. And preserve that writing:

  • Take a picture of it and file it.
  • Email it to yourself.
  • Put it in your genealogy software.
  • Type up a word processing document.
  • Don’t just leave it in your head…for some of us that’s asking for it to get lost–permanently.
