Data:  facts and statistics gathered together for reference or analysis  (Oxford English Dictionary)

Oh gosh yes!   I remember files (and endless filing!) and all the paraphernalia that we kept our records in pre-technical times!   Carmi over at writteninc. has posted a pic of a lovely old reference book, complete with little tabs for finding things more easily.   Usually, the tabs fell off!!

I can't do as good as that, but I did sort some data out.

My old files - bank statements, pay sheets, you name it, its there!

Birth Marriages and deaths are probably the most common data collected.   But by my church, its all there, inscribed on stone!

And then there's the phone book, fill of information, though quite how you'd analyse it, I'm not sure.

Call in at the link above and see what other data you can collect - and post your pics, too.

Very interesting photos and genius data, not a bit boring as data can be! The tombstone gathering is quite the photo too!

What créativité you have, I would never have thought of all that as data! And it is!

I really like the old headstones photo. The aged headstones really match well with the stone fence

I can't remember when I last used a phone book. All the numbers I need are now on the ubiquitous cell phone.
Love the grave stones - but even they are becoming more and more obsolete.

Google can analyze that phone book and make's what they do!
