Genealogy To-Dos – December Wrap-up

by Tonia Kendrick on December 31, 2010 in And More,Research

I started out this month by saying that I was being somewhat less ambitious, but hopefully more realistic with my to-do list for December.  I didn’t quite pull that off.

Writing

Write 8 blog posts (not including “On this date” posts). – This will be my 14th post for December – gold star!

Research

Process 5 headstone photos from Chatsworth Heights Cemetery (this includes entering data into RootsMagic, (possibly) writing “Tombstone Tuesday” posts, and adding the photos to TNG). – I did six.

Process 5 marriage bonds from McDowell County, NC that I found on microfilm last month.  Done.

Census project: Finish the 1930 transcription and analysis for my maternal grandfather and do my paternal grandmother.  Uggh.  These are really taking a lot more time than I had anticipated.  I finished my maternal grandfather and got started on my paternal grandmother.

Other

Database work: delete duplicate notes from records with surnames starting with R and S. – R done.

Complete Lesson Three and work on Lesson Four of NGS Home Study Course – I’ve decided to accelerate my schedule to one lesson every three weeks instead of one per month. I finished lesson 3 and am about halfway done with lesson 4.

Do some FamilySearch Indexing – it’s been awhile since I did this and I’d like to get back into it. – I did a batch of Rowan County, NC marriage records.  This was fun, but more difficult than I had remembered.

I got about 90% of this list completed, but I also had some other things I wanted to do that I’m not ready to write about yet; that’s where I fell short (although to be fair, that’s also where I overbooked).

Check back tomorrow to see my plans for January.  What do you want to accomplish next month?
