2012 Goals

This past weekend I set a few goals for 2012. The ones that apply to my family genealogy are:

  • Blog: Share more of my genealogy on a regular basis. Minimum of one blog post per week.
  • RootsMagic software: Learn more of its functions and begin the transfer of my records from Generations Easy Tree. This will be a manual process since I wasn't happy with the import. 
  • Research Goal: Find additional information / details on two of my 4th Great Grandfathers that died in the Civil War. Malachi Dennis Goodman and Aaron Daniel Varnum.
  • Organize Goal: Clean up my digital and paper files.
  • File as I go. No more file boxes that are on the verge of collapse.

I am using a daily project sheet and weekly project calendar to keep me focused.

So, did you set any 2012 goals?

Family Tree is Growing

Happy New Year!

We had a wonderful Christmas with Clay and his girlfriend, Tiffany, and kids, Kieli & Kurtis. We had a great week with lots of food, crafts, fun & games.

Last night we were informed that Clay and Tiffany are engaged. Looks like our family tree will add a few branches in 2012!
