During January 2012 my goals are:
- Continue saving snapshots (using the Evernote Web Clipper for Google Chrome) of messages I have sent and received through Ancestry.com.au. I will attempt to complete the remaining folders 'Fullerton/Dunne', 'Potter/Preston', 'Ellis/Hehir', 'Randall/Brown', 'OTHER' and also messages in the 'Sent' folder to which I did not receive a reply.
- Participate each week in the 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy Blogging prompts. I will also consider participating in the 21st Century Organized Family Historian weekly challenges from Michelle at The Turning of Generations and the Beyond the Internet blogging theme from Family History Across the Seas.
- Participate in the Twigs of Yore - Australia Day 2012 - Wealth for Toil blogging challenge on Australia day - January 26th.
- Move a few more genealogy files from my 'To Sort' folder into relevant surname folders on my hard drive.
- Move a few more photographs from my 'To Sort' folder into folders for the relevant year and month.
- Blog about the decisions I made when I created my research log templates.
- Actually start my new Legacy file beginning with myself and working backwards methodically, recording all sources, attaching relevant source documents and attaching photographs. During January, I aim to do this for just my immediate family and grandparents. The goal this month is just to start, no matter how small!
- Continue organising my bookshelves on Google Books. At the time of posting, I have 399 books saved in the 'Favorites' bookshelf. During January I will aim to reduce that number to at least 300.
- Synchronise my genealogy folders at least once a week.
- Begin reading Photoshop Elements 10 All-in-One For Dummies.
- Sort and reply to the starred emails in Gmail that I keep neglecting!
- Look into the possibility of using DNA in my O'Brien/Breen research. I just recently purchased a 37 marker Y-DNA test for my Dad, so this goal is already in progress.
- Correct newspaper text on Trove.
- Post some more Church photographs to my Australian Church photos on Flickr.
