As 2012 comes to an end, it is natural to think about the new upcoming year and what to do to make it better. I don’t want to call it my resolution, but instead, my action plan.
So here is my action plan for next year.
- The Luna line – I had tried to get this line as complete as I could so that I could use it as my entry for the National Genealogical Society Family History Contest. However, I was not able to complete that for this year. My action plan will include 1) writing to the Mexican government to get birth, death and marriage records for several members of the Luna family. Also on my action plan is to 2) Interview my Aunt Jessie who last March turned 100 years old. This needs to be done first and I will need to talk to my cousins (her daughters) to set it up.
- The Sanchez line – Well this research was pretty much completed by my mother. I plan on 1) getting her permission to post some of the family research that she did. I don’t know much about her research and the stories she has, but I am looking forward to learning more about it. I also want to 2) create profiles on this family as well and post them here.
- The Stanard line – This family line has come to a complete stop. Well that is, I haven’t been able to progress any further with it. There is a rumor around the family that there is an old family bible that has dates for other family members and I have been told it would further the tree. So, my action plan for this family is to 1) Continue to look for that Bible and have my husband look for it too when he is visiting his mom’s house. I also need to 2) gather my notes on busting through brickwalls and apply those techniques to the walls I have now.
- This blog – I do have an action plan for this blog as well. Now that I am not rush to finish the NGS Family History Writing contest, I will be 1) posting more profiles from the Luna family line. I also will be 2) posting more about the Stanard line as well. I also want to 3) update the editorial calendar to make sure it accurately show my posting schedule.
I don’t like resolutions because they are easy to break. This is why I use my action plan. I like the way it sounds, like its do-able. So, what are your plans for the new year? Any changes you want to make? Post a comment and let me know.
Lastly, I would like to wish everyone of my readers a safe, prosperous, and a very Happy New Year!!This image used with permission. Original image by http://dryicons.com[/caption%5D
