Time for a look back at my some of my genealogy activity  in 2017 with a comparison with 2016.

All in all, it wasn't a great year but an okay one. I need to work on the Find A Grave numbers as well as visiting more cemeteries as soon as it gets warmer this year.

My research numbers as shown by RootsMagic7:
2017-31,296 people, 112,296 citations, 589 sourcesw
2016-31,142 people,  111,434  citations. 577 sources
My total people went up by 154. I probably added a bit more than that but I merged duplicates and deleted a few errors.

Find a Grave
2017-616 memorials, 1006 photos, 188 volunteer photos taken
2016- 616 memorials, 1002 photos 185 volunteer photos taken.
For some reason I lacked the desire to visit cemetaries last year.

2017 (211)
2016 (237)
2015 (220)
2014 (199)
2013 (179)
2012 (170)
2011 (248)
2010 (196)
2009 (254)
2008 (214)
2007 (208)
While my total posts did go down for the first time in several years, I did pass the 200 post mark for the 7th time.

On my Old Colony Graveyard Rabbit blog, I only posted 5 times for the second year in a row.

You've been a busy guy! I feel like I'm slacking when I look at your numbers, Bill. :)
