My 2011 Genealogy Aspirations

It has taken me a little while to finally decide on what I want to focus on in 2011. My review of my 2010 aspirations made me realise I was really trying to  do too much in too many areas. The five key areas I have decided on are:

1. Write up my mother’s Price family history, including photographs and other illustrations in time for her 77th birthday

2. Learn more about DNA from a genealogy perspective and investigate my own DNA

3. Learn more about my Cornish ancestors – I already know the basics from parish registers and census records but not the history and culture of Cornwall

4. Continue to scan photographs and documents so that I have digital copies as well as original copies and maintain a backup regime for both

5. Conserve and preserve family heirlooms I have collected ensuring they are boxed and stored appropriately

Although there are only five items on the list, there is a lot of work that needs to be done for all five so I still need to be focussed to achieve these goals. Hopefully during the year I will also progress other areas of my family history as new information comes online, new indexes are made available or long lost relatives make contact.

2011 is going to be a great year for genealogy!
