I'm usually not one to use highlighters to organize, but this time I made an exception. I had an index showing several transactions on a lot in Chicago for Elizabeth and Thomas Frame.
To keep myself straight, I color coded them on a second copy I had made of the transactions (never do this on your only copy).
Orange is the original mortgage and release.
Green is the subsequent mortgage and release.
Blue are the deeds where they actually bought and sold it.
This is part of the article set to go out this week. Subscribe to Casefile Clues and see why even though these records were for the desired family I decided not to have the researcher pull them for me.
