So here is what I did during February:
The first week of February I was in Salt Lake City with about 2000 of my closest friends attending RootsTech. (This meets some of my educational goals for the year.)
During the second week of February I attended a local society meeting, gave a presentation at the Second Life chapter of the Association for Professional Genealogists, and met with a client.
The third week of February I had a couple of doctors appointments and left on Thursday for a retreat so not much got done that week.
The last week (plus a few days) left in February I recovered from some bug I picked up (probably due to being overly tired) and tweaked my presentations that I presented the last weekend in Feb. (Out of 29 days in February I was gone 13 of them.)
I wrote and posted six blogs (when the month is all said and done.)
Not great. But not bad either.
So on to March:
I am having surgery on my shoulder in late March so I need to get extra done before I am out of commission.
- Finish paper work for new Biz License
- Work on new web site (be ready for the big reveal in April)
- I speak once (One presentation) in March on the 21st.
- Send out letter to genealogy societies advertising my presentations (mailing 3 times a year for two years)
- Develop topics for 8 more presentations
- Complete development of 2 presentations (make the Power Point Presentations and write up notes and handouts)
- I ordered and received some new books: Acadian-Cajun Genealogy by Timothy Hebert; The Canary Islands Migration to Louisiana 1778-1783 by Sidney Louis Villere; and The Canary Islanders of Louisiana by Gilbert C. Din. So I hope to get through these books during March. I may save them for the first week of recovery.
- Also in March I will be attending the all day seminar produced by my local genealogy society "Root Cellar." They are hosting George Morgan.
- Work on my NGS Home Study Course
- Work on the four classes I'm taking from National Institute for Genealogical Studies
- I took on the challenge of writing a letter, note, postcard or some other written type of correspondence every day for the month of March. So all my sisters, brothers, cousins, and friends will be getting a note of some kind.
- Write and post 6 or more blog posts
- Write a first draft of a magazine article
- Do an interview for my blog
- Update to Roots Magic 5
- Clean Office (again) and sort files
- Participate in a scan fest
- Bring my "resume" up to date
- Work on the Parker family line (specifically determine the wife of Peter Becker)
- Work on my CG work (Theaux line) (Specifically: order two or more succession records (whatever the budget will allow)
- Develop Time lines for all family lines
- Research work for my clients
- Finish transcription on the succession record of Irma Domingues
- Check and double check that all the speakers that are booked for the rest of the year for the Second Life Chapter of APG are confirmed.
- Gather photos for my personal genealogy
- Order table cards for NGS Ohio for SL APG
So that's it for March, I think. I've probably forgotten something...if you think of what it is let me know.
