Randy Seaver has come up with a great challenge for this week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun:
Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
Knowing that a “Bucket List” is a wish list of things to do before death:
1) What is on your Genealogy Bucket List? What research locations do you want to visit? Are there genea-people that you want to meet and share with? What do you want to accomplish with your genealogy research? List a minimum of three items – more if you want!
2) Tell us about it in a blog post of your own (please give me a link in Comments), a comment to this post in Comments, or a status line or comment on Facebook.
Think big! Have fun! Life is short – do genealogy first!
So, with that in mind, here are the top seven genealogy things I really want to do before I kick it.
- Do research at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. No explanation necessary.
- Attend IGHR (Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research) at Samford University.
- Do research at the DAR Library in Washington, DC.
- Establish documented proof of descent from each of my Revolutionary War ancestors.
- Have all my genealogy in a format that will last, be that paper, digital, or something that hasn’t been invented yet.
- Arrange to leave all my research to a repository.
- Trace every line back 10 generations (I have holes starting at seven generations now).
There are a lot of other things that I *might* want to do, but these seven are the must-dos.
