- Forrester research: I got an email from a new-found Forrester cousin last month with a good bit of census information. I want to follow up on this and test her conclusions to see if I agree. My brick-wall ancestor appears to be her brick-wall ancestor’s brother. – I did a lot of Forrester research, but it will take more than one month’s work to crack this.
- Census project: do the 1930 transcription and analysis for Newton Coleman Ward. – I switched gears to Coleman Forrester and actually completed transcriptions and analyses for both 1880 and 1870.
- Write 1 research plan (subject TBD – maybe something to do with the Forresters). – Did not do this.
- Work on the research from the plan I wrote last month re: the West/Lankford marriage record. – Put this off until later.
- Write 8 blog posts. – This is post #6. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t meet my posting goal.
- Spend 15 minutes a week dealing with papers on my desktop. – Nope
- Do a little database cleanup work. – This is what got me off-track. I spent way too much time on database work.
- Do one item from DearMyrtle’s February organization checklist, probably something related to photos or scanning. – Nada
- NGS Home Study Course – do Lesson 5 (Census Records). – Bright spot. I did Lesson 5 and Lesson 6 (Vital Records). This puts me back on track to complete the HSC in one year.
- Watch one online video about genealogy (title TBD). – I watched the live Virtual Presentations Roundtable from RootsTech.
Check back tomorrow to see my To-Do list for March.
