September Genealogy To-Dos

It’s so easy to get overwhelmed with all the genealogy research and related activities that I want to get done.  These to-do lists keep me on track.  This is what I want to do in September:


  • Write brief research summaries on the various members Patterson-Chapman line that I’ve been working on for a few months.  I’m a little bored with this family, but I want to be able to pick back up quickly when I’m ready to work on them again.
  • Continue working on the Langston research plan that I started last month – focusing now on the low-hanging fruit (i.e. info from county history book and census records).
  • I ordered a microfilm of Rutherford County, NC marriage records last weekend.  Look for surnames of interest when it arrives.


  • Write 12 blog posts.
  • Finish the post about John “Hense” Patterson that I started last month.


  • Continue copyrighting photos and documents and adding them to RootsMagic and TNG. Shoot for 3 a week.
  • Use research log (if I don’t write it down, I won’t remember to do it.)
  • Add headstone photos from Bethel-Cherry Springs Cemetery.  Shoot for 3 a week.


  • NGS Home Study Course lessons 9 and 10 (both on land records).
  • Watch one webinar from Jamboree swag.

What are your genealogy goals for September?

    I like the way you breakout your todo’s into the 4 categories. I may have to look at that when I get a little more time over the winter months. Good luck on your todos.
