May Drollette's Picture and Sticking to My Goals

May Drollette from her passport application
We've discussed May Drollette before in Casefile Clues, but this is the first picture of her that we have.

Taken from her passport application, it shows her at the age of 37 in 1921.

Much of the follow up work based upon our earlier article on George Drollette has been finished. Some questions have been answered and some have not.
The challenge is to decide when the research fits into our research goals and when it does not.

If one is not careful, one can mindlessly search and locate new information. The goal, particularly who is being researched and why, must always be kept in mind.

Casefile Clues is a little different as sometimes records are accessed so that their use and interpretation can explained. However, not all of us are researching simply to write articles. We'll see how the new material fits into the overall research goals and where we should proceed from there. Extensive research on May's family may not be a good use of my research time, based upon my goals.

Subscribe to Casefile Clues and get in on the discovery.

  1. Michael,

    After you last two articles, I did some searching for your Drollettes. Can't wait to hear more about them!
