'Tis the Season

It is the season for family traditions and for celebrations. We have a lot to celebrate this year with the birth of our son and now being a family of 4. Christmas time is always a happy time of year for me and I am thankful to have a little break from school, even if it is only 3 short weeks this year.

I have taken some time to up date my genealogy to-do list and to think about next year's Genealogy goals. We are still planning our Pennsylvania trip for Septmeber. Just me, the hubby and the two kids in a rental RV from our Michigan home traveling the 700+ miles to PA, but we will have the RV, so it should be an easier ride then trying to drive it in the family mini van and jumping from hotel to hotel. This is going to be our first real Genealogy vacation and I'm hoping to discover more about my paternal grandfather's line.

So what is your goal for the new year in your genealogy? You can share your goals in the comments section.

I've taken time to actually do some research to make some Random Acts of Genealogy Kindness requests for some research. With my college graduation right around the corner I'm excited to have more free time to do my research...what will I do with myself? After the first of the year I'm packing up the baby and hitting the local library and family history center to work through some of my research to-dos before the next semester of school starts.

Happy Hunting.
