Here is a great reason why you want to document your negative searches. Images of the record set Mississippi, Enumeration of Educable Children, 1850-1892; 1908-1957 are on FamilySearch but the records are not indexed. I just visually scanned every name on 370 images one by one for Marion County 1892. Believe it or not, that is actually a small image set. I don’t want to do that again. I ALWAYS document any negative search so that I don’t accidentally redo what I have already done.
