Here are my goals. The completed one are in brown:
- Scan pictures! This is an ongoing process. I have scanned hundreds of pictures. So I feel confident saying this is done!
- Work on my brickwall, Daniel Fenn. I have worked on him, but this is a poorly written goal. Is it complete, I guess?
- Make a concentrated effort to source every fact as I add it to my software program. This is the goal I am most proud of. I went through and sourced all direct ancestors. I don't add a fact to my program without a source. Proudly completed!
- Visit Miami County, Indiana to research Casper and Mary Graf further. Have not done this and I don't have a good excuse for it. If I hope to complete this I better hope for a nice fall day to visit.
- Obtain my grandfather's, Otto August Fredrick, obituary. Completed.
- Attend a genealogical conference. I am still excited about the completion of this goal. I attended FGS 2011 in Springfield, Illinois three weeks ago.
- Start researching my son-in-law's ancestry. Completed. I have five generations on his father's side completed; I am still working on his mother's side.
- Talk to my mother and find out about family heirlooms in her possession. Completed.
- Carve out a regular research time. This was a dream goal, I think. I go in spurts with my research. I didn't accomplish a whole lot this summer, but I am working on a better system for research, so kind of completed.
- Make contact with newly discovered cousins and share information. This is why I love blogging. I have been in contact with new cousins through my blog. I have contacted others through email.
- Research myself! Add my personal facts to my genealogical software. Completed. Roots Magic made this easier. Plus, I have used the 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History prompts and wrote about myself on my blog.
I have completed 9 out of 11 to my satisfaction. 82%, B-! I have three more months to bring my grade up! Wish me luck!
