2009 Resolutions, Progress?

The end is here, the end of the year, that is. It is time to see how Granny has done on her resolutions. On December 28, 2008 I considered my situation carefully and wrote:

For my research:

1. Enter all the information from the BOX into my database. No exceptions, no cheating.

2. I will file all the paperwork in the proper place, not in piles on the floor, desk, or in any convenient box.

Results:

I believe I made three assessments of my progress on August 8, on September 3, and on and October 20th.

For this final look back at 2009, I can report that all the data in the box/pile was entered, and all the original paperwork was filed. That big challenge I made to myself is complete, so I have that to be glad of.

And for my blogs:

1. I will post on either GrannyPam or Granny’s Genealogy every day.

2. I will finish posting all the data from my “old” genealogy site to Granny’s Genealogy.

When this post, and the one I have written for tomorrow is written, I will have made 406 total posts on Granny’s Genealogy, and 180 on GrannyPam. That is a total of 586. To be completely honest, there were many days that I made no post anywhere, but on some days I posted several times.

Honestly, if my goal was to post every day, I did not achieve it. If it was to write every day, I did achieve it.

I am particularly happy about the “Belle’s Box” series of posts. I wanted to highlight a bit about Papa’s family, and their way of life in the early 20th century in Wexford County. Although the series posed many questions, there were also gems, and answers.

As for posting all the data from my old website here on Granny’s Genealogy, I have almost achieved that. There is some data that needs to be reformatted, and I will need to rethink how I present it in blog format. I believe I posted about 90% of the information here, so by my estimate I “almost achieved” that goal.

That is my last look back, from now on, I will be looking forward to 2010. May if be successful for all Geneabloggers!
