Accounting for February - the To Do List

All things considered, I think February was a successful month even though I didn't complete everything I intended to do. I'll post March's to do list in a day or two.

Below are my accomplishments (or not) for the month:

Post my to do list at the beginning of the month and my successes (or lack thereof) at the end of the month

Watch one RootsMagic webinar and put what I learn to use (from January)
undone - for the second month in a row

Transcribe at least one page of Ellis Bickerstaff's Civil War Pension File (carried over from January). In total I scanned and transcribed 7 documents, combined into 2 posts.

Rename and organize at least one batch of photographs (20-50 images scanned on the same date)
  • Feb. 29 - barely done in time to attribute to this month

Participate in Abundant Genealogy at least two weeks in the month

Share one Tuesday's Tip

Publish one Surname Saturday post. This will be an irregularly updated list of surnames and surname variations

Continue my educational efforts

  1. Wow, Nancy, that's an amazing list of accomplishments! You really packed a lot into this month. It's neat that you took time for both RootsTech (the cutting edge) and reading ESM's articles at BCG Skillbuilders (the core values). You're an inspiration!

  2. That is a lot to accomplish. Where in Pennsylvania was Catherine Saylor from.

    I am looking for Mary Ann Saylor in 1814-1896 in The Altoona, Blair County or Huntingdon CountyPA

  3. Yes, Shelley, but they're all little things - just bits and pieces. When I looked at all that I'd done I was surprised, and I don't anticipate that I'll be able to do so much every month.

    Claudia, my Catherine Saylor Froman was in Mercer County, PA, and emigrated from Germany. Her dates are ~1844-1928. Could they be sisters? I don't have too much information about Catherine or her siblings.

  4. This is a very good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.
    Brief but very precise info… Thank you for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

  5. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my
    comment didn't appear. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again. Anyways,
    just wanted to say excellent blog!


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
