We are past the first week of the year and I should have shared this a week ago, but the days got away from me. I have spent much of the last week thinking and planning a few genealogical research matters. Firstly a series that will run over the summer and then a review of blog posts for the Guild Blog Challenge that I wrote about last week.
I am using the Guild challenge to tackle some of the items on my to do list, some of which are easily a decade old (in the case of one, it’s even longer than that!) and connected to my own family history rather than my One-Name or One-Place Studies, but do tap into my studies.
As I type there is a rather
large pile huge stack of papers that needs to be filed and sorted into surnames and the material either added to my database or transferred to my to do list and once that is done the paper digitised and then recycled. As luck would have it, the recycling was emptied this morning, so I have two whole weeks to make a significant dent in those paper stacks!
I am also planning to make a dent in the outstanding projects that I have currently underway, one of which has been bubbling away for several years and I am determined to conclude it. Lastly, I want to post a bit more frequently here, I am aiming for twice a week at the very least.
What are your blogging and research plans for the year?
