I wrote a blog post about the spiritual community of Harmonia, Michigan in January of 2020. Before writing the Harmonia post, I used mind mapping to map out the topics I wanted to cover.
This is way more extensive than I anticipated. It doesn't have pretty colors and shapes, but it gets the job done. It goes into more detail than I would want for one blog post. If I was writing multiple blog posts or even a book, this would be helpful. This is just one way I could see it benefiting family history writers.
I am excited to see what artificial intelligence will bring to the genealogical community. Could it write my blog posts for me? I bet it could, but would it be reliable? accurate? How would I source it? Where does ChatGPT get its information? There are so many questions. This disclaimer, "ChatGPT can make mistakes. Consider checking important information" can be found on the ChatGPT website.
Have you used AI in your research or writing? My readers and I would enjoy hearing about it.
Disclaimer: I used ChatGPT 3.5 to generate the title of this blog post.
