Harold Henderson on Writing

I just read a great article with tips on writing your genealogical research from Harold Henderson titled Why We Don't Write, and How We Can.

There is a lot of good info in the article. I especially like the comparison to buffalo hunters and Harold's "Three Ps of Genealogy:"
Prove our conclusions
Propagate our findings
Preserve our information

In addition to his articles at Archives.com, check out Harold's writings at Midwestern Microhistory: A Genealogy Blog. This is one of my must-read blogs.
