Behind the Scenes

There are a number of meta items that may be of interest to those taking a deep dive on this site, such as my effort to determine the proper tense when describing ancestors (“she was my great-grandmother” or “she is my great-grandmother”) and the conundrum of where to draw the line on private information (is anything game once someone is dead?). There’s the Slave Name Roll Project, which is fascinating. I’ve been thinking about “to tag, or not to tag” those posts which are generate strong emotion. And how best to ensure this content lives on after me. And so on.

I’ll be writing posts on all these topics and more, and you’ll be able to find them linked here, so stay tuned.
