Family History Research in2023
Happy New Year 2023! Enjoy time ringing in the New Year with family and friends. I will be doing the same.
As you think about the upcoming year, have you thought about your family history research goals? I like to make goals rather than resolutions because resolutions seem to have a poor track record. Think of three things that you would like to accomplish for your family genealogy. Perhaps you can choose a smaller activity that you could start and finish in January or February. One of the things that I plan to do is create research summaries for my four main family branches. As part of that project, I hope to identify any gaps and additional research opportunities. Enjoy beginning a new project and perhaps completing one that has been lingering in your to do list.
Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas 2022
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas 2022! Enjoy time with your families--make good memories! Happy Holidays!

With a lifelong passion for genealogy and history, the author enjoys the opportunity to share genealogy tidbits, inspiring others to research and write their family story.
