Motivation Monday - Goals for June 2012

My goals for May 2012 were:
  1. Organise all the items I have previously saved to my 'Shoebox' on Ancestry. At the time of posting I have 460 items saved. I aim to reduce that number to at least 300 during May. Achieved. I have managed to reduce the number of items in my Ancestry 'Shoebox' to 0. 
  2. Continue reading Photoshop Elements 10 All-in-One For Dummies. At the moment I am up to page 352, I will aim to read up to at least page 388 by the end of May. Achieved. 
  3. Begin re-reading Trace Your Roots with DNA: Using Genetic Tests to Explore Your Family Tree by Megan Smolenyak and Ann Turner. Achieved. I have read up to page 88. 
  4.   Actually make a start on my new Legacy file, beginning with myself and working backwards methodically, recording all sources, attaching relevant source documents and attaching photographs. During May, I aim to do this for just my immediate family. Partly achieved. I have started my new Legacy file. 
  5. Move a few more genealogy files from my 'To Sort' folder into relevant surname folders on my computer hard drive. At the time of posting my 'To Sort' genealogy folder currently contains 216 Files, 32 Folders, 283 MB of data. I aim to reduce this number to 0 during May. Achieved. 
  6. Move a few more photographs from my 'To Sort' folder into folders for the relevant year and month. At the time of posting my 'To Sort' photographs folder contains 4,232 Files, 231 Folders, 10.8 GB of data. My 'Scans To Sort' folder currently contains 16,412 Files, 435 Folders, 53.3 GB of data. During May I aim to reduce the number of files in my 'To Sort' photographs folder to at least 4,000. Not achieved, one for June.
  7. Post a Tech Tuesday post each week as part of my Galaxy Nexus Series. Partly achieved. During May I posted two Tech Tuesday posts. However I decided to put the rest aside for a while to concentrate instead on achieving other monthly goals and participating in blogging challenges such as Family History Through the Alphabet
  8. Participate in blogging prompts when able (52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy, 21st Century Organized Family Historian and Beyond the Internet). Partly achieved. During May I posted two 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy posts and two Family History Through the Alphabet posts. 
My goals for June 2012 are:
  1. Continue reading Photoshop Elements 10 All-in-One For Dummies. At the moment I am up to page 388, I will aim to read up to at least page 430 by the end of June. 
  2. Continue re-reading Trace Your Roots with DNA: Using Genetic Tests to Explore Your Family Tree by Megan Smolenyak and Ann Turner. I am currently up to page 88. During June I aim to complete reading this book. 
  3. Continue working on my new Legacy file, working backwards methodically, recording all sources, attaching relevant source documents and attaching photographs. During June, I aim to do this for my immediate family and grandparents.
  4. Move a few more photographs from my 'To Sort' folder into folders for the relevant year and month. At the time of posting my 'To Sort' photographs folder contains 4,232 Files, 231 Folders, 10.8 GB of data. My 'Scans To Sort' folder currently contains 16,412 Files, 435 Folders, 53.3 GB of data. During June I aim to reduce the number of files in my 'To Sort' photographs folder to at least 4,000. 
  5. Participate in blogging prompts when able (Family History Through the Alphabet, 52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy, 21st Century Organized Family Historian and Beyond the Internet)

  1. Wow, Aillin, this is a great June list. Personally, I love the fact that you have a "to sort" folder of photographs - somehow this makes my "to sort" folder seem OK:) A never ending but enjoyable task ... sorting photos.

    1. Thanks Maria. Yes, I'll be working on that photo sorting for a while, but a little at a time :)
