Ok, so it's not just a genealogy tip.
Our laptop is on the fritz and my daughter wanted to use the desktop. I was forced to read some homestead case files without the internet and email as a distraction.
And guess what?
I noticed three things I had not noticed the first time I read through the papers. The first time I had read them while I was "waiting" on webpages or search results to load.
Is multitasking your problem? Would you notice more details in a record or a file if it had your complete attention?
