Genealogical Resolutions

Oh so many projects!  How does one choose???  I have seen a lot of blogging this month about setting goals for the coming year and it has got me thinking about what I wanted to accomplish this year genealogically speaking.  Here is a list of what I would like to do:

Research Projects

  • Civil War – The 3 (or 4) Mattson brothers from Chester Co. PA who fought in the war
  • England – The Dibben and Cork Families who came to the mid west in 1870‘s – finally get my money’s worth from my Find My Past subscription!
  • DAR Supplements for 4 ancestors that haven’t been proved
  • Mayflower Society Application for George Soule
  • Pennsylvania Research Trip – too many families to name over a 250 year period!
  • Texas Research Trip – Turner and Hollingsworth families
  • Client Research

Take Professional Classes

  • Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh – hope I get in!
  • NGS Home Study Course to fill in my gaps in knowledge


  • Great Migration presentation to a few organizations
  • Building new presentation on topic TBD

Organization – Update My Research Binders

  • US Locations
  • England
  • Resources

Keeping up on Journals/Webinars/Blogs/Books/Magazines

  • Too many to mention

Unrealistic huh? Talk about biting off more than I can chew, but maybe our projects choose us as much as we choose them….I suspect you will be hearing what gets selected in the coming months.

    Oh so true. I am trying to prioritize based on which family members can still tell me stories.
