FINALLY Get Organized! 21st-27th Feb 2016
Blogger DearMYRTLE wants to help genealogists get organized for 2016. She proposes a weekly set of tasks to help us achieve our goal. Ol’ Myrt explains that “Each week's post will feature options for paper and digitally-oriented genealogists, with an eye to the beginner and intermediate researcher.” If you want to participate in this year-long activity, read more about it at FINALLY Get Organized!
Here’s how I’ve completed this week’s tasks.
Task 1. “Add the names and compiled dates of birth, marriage and death for your 4 generations on your surname (if male) or maiden name (if female) in your [4 family group sheets]”.
I created Family Group Sheets for my maiden name (Belair) ancestors in early 2012, so this task is done.
Task 2. “If it takes more than one document to prove a point of fact about an ancestor's life, then attach the relevant documents […]”.
I feel fortunate that I've found all the birth and/or baptism, marriage, and death and/or burial documents for my father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and great-grandfather.
