OK, here's what I want to do in 2015. Most of it is familiar territory:

1.Transcribe:  The amount of probate files and other documents I've found increased
substantially last year. I need to establish some sort of routine to get more of them
transcribed. Perhaps regular Amanuensis Monday posts, or maybe Transcription

2. Make more use of Google ebooks and also the FamilySearch and
websites: I have found a lot of these sites already but I know there is more on them that
I haven't found yet. I need to be more efficient using them. 

3. Organize: I've made a start this past year. I need to keep at it and not backslide because
I'm a hurry. Laziness now will be paid for later.

4. Continue working on my family tree: I need to keep adding information on collateral
lines and keep trimming duplicate entries. I seem to add and trim an equal amount of
entries each year. I need to maybe concentrate on the trimming a bit more.

6. Join a local society: Yeah, I say that every year.

7. Continue Find A Grave activities: I seem to work on Find A Grave in spurts. I need to
 maybe pick one night a week to work on uploading the photos and creating memorials
to make it a weekly routine.    

8.Blog more: This year I will break the 200 post mark for this blog and post at least 50
times on my Old Colony Graveyard Rabbit blog. I'd really like to hit 100 there, though.  
The 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks was very successful for me in 2014, and I plan to continue
with that. Maybe I'll adapt it on the Graveyard Rabbit blog to 52 Headstone in 52 Weeks!

9. Scan more: I still have my portion of the family photos to scan.

10. Index more: This one may be the toughest. With all the other things it's hard to
fit it in, but I will try.

11. Visit more of the  towns where my ancestors lived, see their graves and homes,
and take photos.

12. Break down that John Cutter West brick wall: Maybe this will be the year!

And as I say every year, just keep having fun!

I like your goals. I think I'll copy them.
