It's that time of year (No, not THAT "that time of year", that's over;
this is THIS "that time of year"! Got that?)again,when people make
resolutions they hope to keep in the upcoming year. And since
geneabloggers are people, too(I have it on very good authority), the
87th Carnival of Genealogy is all about our plans and research
objectives in 2010. I've had some mixed sucess over the past
two years, but like Don Quixote I'm ready to go out tilting against
some genealogical "windmills" once more.

So here are my goals for 2010:

Organize! Organize! ORGANIZE! Cite those sources and trim the tree of
duplicate entries!

Scan! Scan! SCAN! Get that Rubbermaid tub of pictures done!

Research! Research! RESEARCH!

Share what I've found with anyone who needs help tilting at their own
genealogy "windmills".

Get out of the apartment more and visit the NEGHS, the Family
History Center and some of the places my ancestors lived and where
they are buried.

Do more work on my maternal lines, the Whites, Offingers, McFarlands
and Kelleys.

Keep chipping away at that John Cutter West brickwall.

And most of all to keep having fun doing all of the above!

Written for the 87th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy.

Wow, quite a few resolutions, Bill. Best in the New Year, and keep up the energy. Maybe some will rub off on me.

I hope this is the year you finally break through on John Cutter West! Looking forward to reading about all your finds.

Good luck on your goals!
