How to write a good CV (regardless of your background)

Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher here in southern California, was doing some personal work on her own family  tree. She discovered that Congressman Harry Reid’s great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889.  Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.

Remus Reid

The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows in Montana territory.

On the back  of the picture Judy obtained during her  research is this inscription:

‘Remus Reid, horse  thief, sent to  Montana Territorial Prison 1885,  escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six  times.  Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in1889.’

So Judy recently e-mailed Congressman Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle.

Harry Reid

Believe it or not, Harry Reid’s staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:

“Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana   railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the   railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honour when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed”

NOW THAT is how it’s done folks! That’s real SPIN
