    A week or so ago, I remember seeing some tweets about Google Alerts being down or at least inactive. Do you know if that situation is resolved? (And thanks for the reminder about eBay!)

      Hi Christine,

      Likewise I saw tweets saying that Google Alerts were down, but I have continued to receive mine. So it was perhaps a issue that has been fixed or intermitten across a selection of users. Give it a go anyway, you might strike lucky!

    Thank you for this list of ways to “let the data come to you.” You are completely right about the feeling of being overwhelmed. Other paths lure us away.

    I’ve been trying to stay on track lately by completing a huge family tree & archive task at the request of my 3rd cousin. We share lines, so it’s also my task. That, too, is overwhelming — staying on the same past.

    I’m copying the link for your post for later use!

    Thanks again.
