Sharing your Genealogy Research

sharingI have been interested in my families’ genealogy for around 10 years now.  I remember that my first real start was in the summer of 2002, when my uncle Phil gave me some of the research he had done on the family.  I looked at the info that he gave me, and then set it aside.  I did not really get started on doing some real research until about 6 years ago.

My Family tree....By the numbers

Every year I set a few goals for the year, and often time, goals about my family tree are in the works.  In the past I have been more concerned about "growing" the tree based on the number of individuals alone, but this year I am also looking to improve the "Quality" of the tree, by increasing the number and use of sources in the tree.  Previously, it was easy to discern if I had met my goal, just record the number of Individuals that I had before the year started, and compare to the number I have at the end of the year.

It's a New Year: 2012 Goals

Every year I have set some goals and then through out the year post about my progress.  This year will be no different.  I hope to accomplish a few more of them this year.  I did not have a lot of luck in accomplishing last years goals.  

I use goals and not resolutions because a goal is something you work toward.  A resolution, one mistake, and the resolution is "blown" but a goal is the finish line, you just need to get there.  Does not matter how fast.

So on to the goals:

Learning from Who do you think you are (US)

One of the shows that I like to watch if I get the chance is the American version of “Who do you think you are”.  It’s a show that traces the family history of the subject of the episode.  The American Version of the show to date has focused on celebrities, and the subject of this week’s episode was the actress Kim Cattrall (Samantha from Sex and the City).
