I had a similar problem, living in a 3rd country and needing a police clearance. They also wanted a record of all my movements. And I assume I will need it for some phase of my K1 process. I am on my 3rd passport!

heres what I did... make a spreadsheet in excel, or whatever you use, and make columns as such...eg

country arrival date stamp on page \ country departure date stamp on page days in reason

MEXICO 01/01/06 20 MEXICO 01/10/06 23 10 visit family

before you enter the days in or the reason get the computer to sort it in dated order... I found it easy to remember what Id been doing once I saw the number of days I was in a particular place. Also the powers that be were very happy they did not have to wade through a myriad of stamps, they could just go to the page I listed and find it. I did a seperate sheet for each passport. It changed a process that normally takes a couple of months here to 4 days!!!

Good luck
