I’m not usually one to do New Year’s resolutions–as my dad would say, I once made a resolution to never make resolutions and have kept it to this day. However, goals are always a good idea.
I will finally order my grand-aunty Fran’s birth registration this year to see if it will shed any light on my secretive (aka brick wall) great-grandmother Deacon. “Grandma Deac” has woven a pretty intricate trail, even if she didn’t mean to, and I have been on it for a decade or so now. If nothing new comes up on said birth registration, then I shall let grandma Deac keep her secrets. For now.
About two years ago I started getting copies of all the required documentation to prove my research. I will continue this, as well as scanning (join Miriam over at AnceStories the last Sunday of every month for ScanFest) and transcribing it all into my program (Rootsmagic).
I would like to find out what ever became of my aunts Annie (nurse) & Mary (music teacher) Thompson after World War I. That will mean learning a few new research techniques, as I have not needed to do much research in the more modern era (what do you do when there are no censues?!).
I hope you and yours have a Happy and Healthy New Year!
