I’ve just listened to your RLP Ep 151: John Isenhour, pt 2. You described your Airtable Research Log. Will you be sharing this? I’m still struggling with Airtables and thought seeing your example would greatly help me, especially with the columns for notes, documents, links, etc.
I have learned so much from the podcasts, blogs, working through the eCourse (slowly but surely), and reading and rereading THE book. Thanks you so much.
I’ll post a PDF of the log so you can see how I use it!
Hi, I enjoyed the podcast. I was wondering if you could post a sample view of an Air Table layout. I went to their site and it looks interesting, but it is a little hard to visualize it set up with genealogy data. Thanks, Jeri
I’ll post a PDF of the Airtable log.
Here is a link to the Airtable base that Nicole designed and that I used for the Isenhour project. It has examples that you can follow and includes features for DNA, that can be used when and if DNA research is added to a project.
