Genealogy To-Dos – January Wrap-Up

I got away from genealogy a couple of weeks this month, spending my time on other pursuits (reading and scrapbooking, namely).

How did I do toward my goals?

  • Write 10 blog posts – completed 7
  • Abstract (or update previously-done abstractions, if necessary) 20 census pages and update the citations.  I haven’t located all these census pages yet, so some research will be in order.  Specifically work on the pages that include:  Robert West 1840, 1830, 1820, 1810, 1800;  Anna Mariah Cook 1840, 1830, 1820, 1810; Wyatt Lankford 1870, 1840, 1830, 1820, 1810; Morning Tabitha Bruer 1860, 1840, 1830, 1820; Abner Lankford – any (I just learned about him this week). – Oh, not good.  I couldn’t find any of the above census records and moreover, I only completed abstracting one that I did find – Frances (Rudd) Kendrick and Thomas Kendrick 1840.  I’ll probably get one more finished this afternoon.
  • Index 30 names on FamilySearch – batting zero here.
  • Scan 5 photos & process 5 headstone photos. Done and done.  Finally, something to check off.
  • Look for (online) source records to verify facts referenced in pp. 11-15 of Butler Ahnentafel report. – another zero.

Oh well.  A new month starts tomorrow, along with an opportunity to start fresh.  Check back on Tuesday for February’s to-do list.
