I do not have too much to blog about, but here is a brief update:
Currently I am developing my research into an outline that will eventually morph into a historiographical paper. My aim is to have something concrete that can aid any future researcher or knowledge seeker on the topic of Saint Domingan refugees to Charleston, SC. Since I hope to eventually leave Charleston for graduate school, this paper will also serve as my writing sample for those applications.
I put together a notebook containing everything I have compiled or written on this subject, i.e. the bibliography, names database, newspaper database, and outlines/notes. It is encouraging to see everything that I have in print and organized in a notebook.
