A big PLUS-1 on this post.
Im 2nd owner, and had no idea which room was Amanda's bedroom(grin). Come to find out, it was the SW corner of the unfinished basement. I took it a step farther, followed each wire, did a diagram of each circuit so I knew the entire path for each breaker. Has helped me many times over the years.

Good luck...notnew....
