January Genealogy To Do List

It's the first of the month, so I better plan out what I am going to do this month.

I am struggling this month to decide what I want/need to accomplish. I got myself to a nice stopping place last month and cleaned up a lot of my to do files. So this month I need to start tackling the last branch of my family tree that needed resourced.

For January I want to:
  • Start resourcing BASCOM line. I am going to start by breaking this tree in half (BASCOM and HILLIS) because it is about a big as the rest of my tree combined. I'm going to begin fixing the source citations in the HILLIS line. I'm not sure how far I can get this month, but want to finish this side by the end of March (hopefully much sooner).
  • Finish two years of the Vevay Newspaper Index.
  • Work on National Institute of Genealogical Studies course (US: Migration Patterns). To be finished in February (if not before).
That's about it for this month. I really want to get my source citations in order soon so that I can figure out exactly where to start focusing my research. I don't want to start too many new things until I can finish the old stuff (no matter how hard that may be).

What are your genealogy goals for January? How are you going to start working on your 2010 New Year's Resolutions?
