Re: Past Perfect – objects vs. archive


Brittney – I would highly suggest having these records available as searchable. In fact, each would seem an ideal candidate as a archive since the the relationship (ahem) is family. This is certainly open to suggestions from the community but my recommendations would be to initiate a Contact record for the primary contributor. Then there would seem to be two options. 1) Establish an Accession for the individual family (cumlative) history followed by an Archive Catalog records for “surname” records and “Containers” for events; 2)and possibly offering more flexibility – Establish an Accession record for each Family (surname)File, correlate documents and Catalog accordingly….. The latter would seem to facilate the addition of subsequent data to each family branch. Excuse the long & windy narritive.
