Spray and Pray Method

Thanks to Alona Tester for directing me to Fran Kitto’s recent blog post, which discussed this research method that she heard about from a speaker at the Familysearch Library in Salt Lake City.

 
Spray and Pray Method: This is when you type in a name and hope you get something.
The speaker warned that this is not a good method for researching.
