I am making slow but steady progress in my Family Tree Re-Do. I have my parents and grandparents, plus my siblings entered. On my husband’s side, I have entered his parents, grandparents, one set of great-grandparents, and his children.
Every fact has a source – or will have before I go any further.
I have scoured vital records, family records, legal documents, etc in my possession. I still need to check digital sources on my computer (scanned newspaper articles, census records, etc) for any additional information.
I’m trying very hard to avoid being distracted by the shaking leaves on Ancestry. I don’t want to spend time right now on a hint about a 2x great-uncle when I need to be sticking to the basics.
Now that I have the beginnings of my new tree, it’s time to review. I might need to tweak some of my source citations. I need to make a list of what’s missing (facts, sources, notes).
I still need to set up my new filing system. Again, just the basics, but I want to make sure the digital system matches the paper system.
It’s going to be another busy week!
