I have decided to do this a day early as tomorrow I will be indexing as per my resolution in Janaury (indexing on the first Saturday of every month). I found this week the hardest out of all the previous weeks. My thoughts are below:
1. Commence working on you mother’s maiden name binder.
I have completed this and printed off the family group sheets. I have yet to create an introduction for this. I have also sorted out the digital folders like my binders, so they mirror each other.
2. Pesky Siblings – Make sure siblings of ancestors are typed in my genealogy management software and create additional binders for the married woman.
I found this part the hardest. I have infact not got this far with transferring my data from FTM to Legacy and therefore I had to input them all over this week. My father is one of 7, along with my other ancestor siblings, I have not completed this task yet. I have inputted, sourced and transcribed all the other ancestors except my fathers line, where I have just inputted the data. I will continue to work on to completely source and transcribe the documentations for my fathers line in the incoming week.
Although I have created binders my brother and his descendants and my father’s sisters. At this point I realised that I need extra storage room for the binders. (Nagging the other half for a shelf above my desk). I have yet to fill these binders together with an introduction.
I am slightly confused on where my cousins will fall in line with all of this. However, I will leave them for now and wait for the next checklist’s hoping it becomes clear soon.
I will update you on this task next week, when I will be completed.
Goodnight, Nos Da (In welsh)
