I’m so glad that I started keeping a monthly to-do list again. Even if I don’t get everything completed, it helps me stay on track and keeps me from getting stressed out about all that I want to accomplish.
Write 8 blog posts (not including “On this date” posts) – ideally, this will include 1 Women’s Timeline post and 3 Surname Saturdays, but anything counts. Done – I actually wrote 12 posts.
- Look for James Benjamin Butler family on 1910 census in Texas. I’ve looked before, but hope springs eternal. I looked, but got no results. I’ll try again in a few months.
- Visit courthouse and get a copy of my grandparent’s marriage license. Well, this is weird. I looked for it, but couldn’t find it. I”ll have to put this on the back burner and check again another time.
- Order SS-5 for Lizzie (West) Kendrick. Done
- Visit cemetery & get headstone photos for Lizzie and France Kendrick. Done. I also got a lot of other headstone photos while I was there.
- Scan remaining 4 death certificates & enter info into database. 2 completed.
- Process 4 emails from my genealogy inbox (this includes due diligence to verify facts & then entering info in database). 2 completed.
- Finish updating all military records in RootsMagic (they didn’t import with my original gedcom for some reason). Done
- Get the RootsMagic database cleaned up enough to import into TNG – this makes me very anxious. The whole process will probably be a future post topic. Done. There is still a lot of clean-up that needs to be done, but I don’t think I’ve lost any data.
- Continue working on The Notebook Project – I’m on Ellis. I made good progress on this. I’m in the middle of the Gs now (working in alphabetical order).
- Complete Lessons 2 & 3 in NGS “Family History Skills” online course. I only completed Lesson 2.
I consider July to have been a very productive month (Grade: A). How was yours?
