In our podcast episode today, Diana and I discuss how to put information from records into a table to help you organize the data and make connections. Nicole tells about a land study that she did and organizing lots of deeds by clustering the rows in the table by the names of the witnesses. Diana talks about showing data about a person’s age from each census year with a table. Join us for a discussion of using tables for research reports!

I listened to your podcast today and picked up some good tips and ideas. I use tables a lot and never thought to put footnotes inside of them. Diana, you were trying to think of the word for the “x with the little 2 above it”–that’s the superscript. I also loved the tip about adding a file to multiple folders in Google Drive.
Thank you for all the great ideas you give us!
Thanks for helping me out – of course- superscript! Not a term I use a lot obviously. Thanks for listening and commenting.
