Daily Research Challenge 2016
What better way to prepare for the RootsTech conference that I get to attend for the first time this year, February 3-6, in Salt Lake City. As I’m researching I’ll choose the classes that most apply to what I need to learn to solve the questions and problems I have in my research.
Doing family history research in small increments of time has always been my go to method for fitting it in to a busy schedule. Fitting in 30 minutes of anything doesn’t seem impossible! I’ve never tried consistently researching for 30 days straight, so I can’t wait to see how this kind of focus will help me stay on track and accomplish my goals.
Here are my goals for the next 30 days:
- Contact close DNA matches from the ancestry DNA test and ask about memories about great grandparents
- Find documents about my elusive Welch and Keaton ancestors in South Carolina
- Gather family stories that support our family mission statement to share with my kids
- Fill out branches in my family tree by adding more cousins
Each Wednesday I’ll post an update to my progress. I hope you’ll join me by making of goal of consistent research this new year!
