I was responding to a question In Pauleen’s new geneameme for National Family History Month when I thought I’d go for a bit of alliteration but I couldn’t find the right words. This is what I wrote:
Do you have a favourite research strategy to knock down your brick walls?
The PIP Process. Persistence, Inventiveness and Patience.Persistence – keep at it, try, try and try again. Inventiveness – harness your creative powers, think laterally to find your way around a problem. Patience – just like Snow White believed that “one day my prince will come” believe that some day you will find your answer, it make take two, ten or twenty years to find that magic sledgehammer. Hey – I just invented the PIP process – my bit of creativity for National Family History Month.
