Because this first book in our storyline is primarily based upon the biographical accounts of three people, and because at the time that these events took place none of these three people were looking at events from the standpoint of becoming contributing authors to this work now in progress, the notes being individually kept were primarily circumstantial and by chance, rather than as carefully stored documents. At the time the Internet and its facilities such as newspaper archives and the 'Wayback machine' did not exist, but now they are proving to be invaluable tools in reassembling a record of the past. Court documents are also invaluable for this purpose because evidence recorded was evidence often given under oath. Peer reviewed academic monologues serve a similar purpose if they are created as a result of first-hand knowledge.
So when this storyline reached the point where Genie entered the picture forming as the second member of 'The Trio', we began by asking her to recall from human memory, the life she lived at the time. But because recall can be quite hazy and distorted, it is then necessary to find documentation that either supports the timeline of the narrative, or it makes a correction.
Sometimes that correction involves more than just the timeline when it touches upon more than the primary event, and makes reference to geography and other people involved. Such was the case when Genie began trying to recall the sequence of events that led to her becoming the second member of 'The Trio'.
Looking at a single event through the eyes of one person, when the event concerns more than one person, means that aspects of the event may not be understood until much later when other perceptions of that same event are taken into account as a result of research. This is what we have been doing in the last few days using our unique YesterCode as a guide, while delving into documented archives created by a variety of other authors and stored in many different archives.
Genie's story continues tomorrow ....
