March, No April, No May Genealogy Goals Reviewed

I made some genealogy goals back in March and they didn't get done. So I made the same goals my April goals, and then didn't get done. So I made them my May goals, and for the most part I actually got them completed! For May, I broke all my goals down into tiny goals so that I could complete something everyday for each task. I did pretty well until I finished all but one of my goals half way through the month and didn't want to do it by itself. I guess I should have made some more goals.
  • Finish scanning the slides that I borrowed from my grandma. This will allow me to get more at the beginning of April when I visit her again. Finished in April!
  • Work on adding metadata to my digital photos. Finished for the slides and photos from my grandma. Will continue to add metadata to everything else I have.
  • Work on husband's family lines in Alsace, France. This was the goal that got left behind. I did one transcription/translation a day for a while (sometimes more), but then I got tired of doing them. And I would have finished, but I kept finding siblings and more records to add.
  • Work on my Norfolk, England ancestors. FamilySearch added more Norfolk images online and I need to search through them for my ancestors. Apparently I forgot about this goal. I think I need to order some FHL microfilm to get this research done.
I was also able to order some FHL microfilm on my Eiswerth line in Germany and some Switzerland County, Indiana church records. I also took a trip to Switzerland County and photographed two cemeteries, plus a few more stones and family files at the library.

Plus I read some great genealogy books (with Amazon affiliate links):
