Oh goodness, Motivation Monday!!! I need motivation badly. I am slacking so badly in my research. I am trying to get all of my information in one place, well two places really, in notebooks and binders and on the computer. I keep trying to redo my trees instead of keeping to one so I have made one tree now and I am going to keep to it. I was going to split it off into two trees but that is going to be way to hard right now for me to add stuff to out of my notebooks I have about 15 to 20 spiral bound notebooks filled with notes that are not organized at all by surname or anything. So as I go through the notebooks I add the information to family tree maker that is sourced or I have first hand knowledge of being correct.
So that would be my motivation to get the notebooks out of the way and onto the computer because that is where it needs to be instead of lying around everything. I need to be motivated to be organized and to have more research plans and know where I want to go with my research and what I want to find out. I would love to know where my ancestors immigrated from but on some it stops before where they would have immigrated to the United States and I have no idea where to go and what to do to find out more information.
I need to research more and read more into it and find out what I need to know. I have many resources to look at and read. I have so many books on my Kindle and of course the internet at my disposal. I just don't know where to begin. I have started reading through the genealogy books on my Kindle again. I got to keep in mind what I read in one this morning and that was One Ancestor, One Question, and One Record at a time. I have so much I want to do with all of this information that it's hard to stay on track with just researching one at a time.
