In a Slump

I don't know what has been going on lately...   I guess you can say that I have been in a slump.   I guess that I am suffering from burn out from genealogy.   I am backing away a little to try and see if that helps.   Usually when this happens I either stop for a couple of days or work on someone else's tree or something.  I believe that we all go through it every once in a while.  
I have some correspondence to do with some other family members that i have gotten to know that I am going to still continue to do and then I'll go from there.   I am the type that when I get started on something like that I go full force on and that causes burn out quickly.

  1. It is always good to back away from your tree and stay time away for a couple of weeks. Do other things, spend some time organizing your computer files and photo's. Take photo's of the historical items you have, the quilt, the recipe, land, farm, deeds, gravestones.... Go to the courthouse, historical society, genealogical society and take photo's of everything. These trips out give you a jolt of excitement and motivation about what you are doing. And alot of times these outings will help you find new paths of research to take.
