2014 Research Goals
hesitated put-off doing this because, in all candor, my family history research is really a byproduct of my (undiagnosed) ADD. So to actually get organized, seems to totally undermine the whole point of this. ☺
But now that I've joined a group of like-minded individuals -- AAGSAR -- I'm on Twitter, and I have even begun to blog about my work, I suppose it's time.
So here are my research goals for 2014:
[♪ ♫ CUE THE MUSIC ♩ ♬]
Obtain the pension files for my Civil War ancestors: Pvt. Jonas Griffin and Corp. Issac Bains (alt. Baynes) and follow-up on all leads found (including the possibility that Issac Bains was a slave prior to enlisting with the USCT). DONE! Get photos of my Texas kin from my newly found second cousin once removed. [U.N.C.: ☺]DONE!
- Successfully complete the 52 Ancestors Challenge!
Solve at least one Mystery. DONE!
- Figure out this whole DNA+Genealogy thing [helpful suggestions on where to start, appreciated!]
Williamston, NC,Oxford, NC and/or Dallas, TXfor research and connections.
That doesn't seem like much, but in keeping with the "A" prong of Smart Goal Setting, I'll leave it there.
I'll keep you posted on my progress!
