Motivation Monday - September 2014 Goals

You know, since my father died in 2011, I've found myself on several occasions declaring I was ready to get back to my research. I can't guarantee that this time will be any different than those previous attempts to find my way back to the research and blogging but it feels like something is finally happening.

For one, while attending the funeral of my Aunt Dorothy this past weekend, I actually grabbed my camera and took it with me to photograph the tombstones of relatives that I knew were buried in this particular cemetery. So, I'm praying, hopping and taking that as a sign that I'm finally back.

So, let's try once again, to set a few monthly goals and yes most all of these are the same ones from back in April.


  1. Write a minimum of two posts for the month.

  1.  Get Office / Craft Room back in order. Unlike back in April, I can at least move around in the room, and I have done some decluttering / organization since April but there is still a lot to do to get the room back in order. Goal Date: September 6, 2014
  2. Organize and make sure citations are in order for the individual folders that I have for myself and my parents. Goal Date: September 27, 2014


  1. Read Slave Genealogy: A Research Guide with Case Studies by David H. Streets. I purchased this book last year but can't remember if I ever got around to reading it. Since I'm back to this time period on most of my lines, I'm hoping that this reading will help me develop other approaches in finding my enslaved ancestors. Goal Date: September 20, 2014
I should add that I did get part of one goal from my April Goals accomplished, which was doing the Patriclan Test from African Ancestry on my Maternal Grandfather's line. I received the results this past week and will hopefully reveal them during the upcoming week.
