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.
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.
