Motivation Monday: Week of April 16

After the 1st week, I think I am moving forward with the goals I set for the month. My updates are in blue.

Research: Find the following people in the 1940 Census, Marie Jonas, Rose McAvoy, Joseph Lachney and family, and John James Hilton and family.

Continue researching the family of Daniel P. O’Connell, brother of my great-grandfather.

Writing: The goal is to beat 11 posts for the month, (this is post 3). I also am working on a  book project, I have a rough draft of chapters and would like to work on the first chapter for this month. Only basic information will be given on this project until it starts coming together and I know it is something that I will complete.

With the writing of this post, I am at 10 posts for the month and have made a good effort to have the information scheduled for future dates. 

For my book project, I have inserted the introduction and started one of the chapters.

Some other things I have done that are not included in my goal is I completing my article for The In-Depth Genealogist (are you subscribed? If not you can subscribe here so you do not miss the next issue). This has become a large part of my writing goal in the last few days. We have made many changes to the newsletter and have so much more happening in the near future. 

I also published an article for, which is about Travel. You can read my Examiner articles here

Organization: Get the last of my magazines files in order and start on my folders for the families.

Education: Continue with Progen 15 and participate in a few webinars. I cannot watch them on my computer, but I downloaded an app for my Iphone where I will be able to attend that way. I signed up for the ISGS webinar next week and will see how that works.

I finished reading my ProGen 15 homework on Tuesday, 10 Apr.
