Operation Genealogy Resolution
Posted by Diane

Have you made your genealogy resolutions for 2009?

I’m staying away from vows to find specific information (such as the year my dad’s grandparents immigration to America) because, well, what if I don’t find it?

Instead, I’m resolving to take more steps.  

Resolution No. 1 is to look at my research papers and plan what to do next. Resolution No. 2 is to write at least one information request, order one microfilm, visit one library—do something that makes progress—per month.

Gulp. Now they’re out there and I can’t take them back.

If publicizing your own genealogy resolutions will help keep you honest and prevent procrastination, post them to FamilyTreeMagazine.com’s Back Fence Forum. (Note you must register with the Forum to post.)

Here's more genealogy resolution inspiration from Canadian columnist Diana Lynn Tibert, About.com Genealogy’s Kimberly Powell, and the Genealogy Reviews Online blogger.
