52 Weeks to Better Genealogy – Challenge 52 – Tools and Resources for Goals

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 52

Week 52: Based on the goals you made last week, make a list of the documents and research steps you need to accomplish them. The great way to start a new year is with a to-do list and a plan. What information do you want and where can you get it? If you have professional or educational goals in mind, consider drafting a timeline. This task is flexible, based on your goals. When you are finished, post your to-do list somewhere handy and pat yourself on the back. You just finished the 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy Challenge!

This challenge runs from Saturday, December 25, 2010 through Friday, December 31, 2010.

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 51

Week 51: Think about the goals you want to accomplish next year and write them down. What research steps do you want to take? What records would you like to find? Think about the brick walls you’d like knocked down. What things haven’t you done yet and why not? This task doesn’t have to be a resolution list unless you want it to be. Authors of genealogy blogs may share their lists with their readers if they choose.

This challenge runs from Saturday, December 18, 2010 through Friday, December 24, 2010.

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 50

Week 50: Check out your regional archives. Last week’s challenge had you checking out the genealogy-related web pages at the National Archives. This week, your task is to explore the offerings at regional National Archives facilities. Use the map to find the regional office close to you. Just like last week, click links and browse. What types of collections are at your regional location? Challenge participants outside the United States can explore their own regional government archives/records offices.
