Genealogy To-Dos – February Wrap-Up

February turned out to be a good genealogy month.   I thought I might get sidetracked from my original plans by playing in the Geneablogger Games, but I was able to combine many tasks and make them work for both the Games and my To-Do list.

February Plan:

  • Write 10 blog posts – This post makes 10.  Done!
  • Abstract (or update previously-done abstractions, if necessary) 10 census pages and update the citations. – 9 completed, although I may get one more done this evening.  Stephen Lawson HH 1840, 1850, 1860; Dave Butler HH 1930; Thomas Lytle HH 1850; Elizabeth Mann 1850; John D. Whitener HH 1850; William Holt HH 1850; Logan Whitener HH 1850.
  • Index some names on FamilySearch – Indexed 50 names from 1910 Massachusetts census.  I think I should get extra points for this.  Many were Greek immigrants and I had a hard time deciphering the names.  Done!
  • Scan 5 photos & process 5 headstone photos. – Done!  I have no more headstone photos to process, until I visit another cemetery, that is.
  • Look for (online) source records to verify facts referenced in pp. 11-15 of Butler Ahnentafel report.  I’m almost finished with p. 13.  I’ve determined that five pages of this is too much to do in one month.  March’s goal will be three pages.

I accomplished almost everything I set out to do, plus I did quite a few other genealogy-related things (such as The Notebook Project A-Baxter).  This was a productive month.  How was yours?
