Best laid genealogy plans

My genealogy plan for last week was a little too grand. I made progress on all of the things on my list, but I did not finish any of them. This week, I am just picking up where I left off and keeping my plan to a more modest scale. There are too many other things going on — from important meetings at work to a DIY kitchen renovation here at home — to allow huge progress on the family history front. My plan for this week includes continuing to:

  • post my grandmother’s photos on a blog where family members can add comments and ID mystery people
  • evaluate online publishers for a book of these photos ( is in the lead right now)
  • transcribe my great-grandmother’s guest book

Coming up here this week, I will:

  • post surnames I have encountered so far in the guest book transcription project (look-up requests are welcome)
  • talk about an oil company advertisement that revealed details of a great-grandfather’s life
  • look at a scarf my great-aunt brought home from India
