Another week passed with very little actual research achieved and very little sorting and organising achieved either. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing any work, most of my time has been spent on planning and background reading.
I really need to get some sorting out this week, before I do any more serious research and make matters worse. My organising has slowed almost to a standstill, and I really need to get back into a routine again of systematically going through my files and folders.
I continue to be amazed at how many leads keep turning up in my GEERING research, I now have three certificates to process, which are presenting some interesting questions and answers. Hopefully this week will also see the arrival of the will of Ann GEERING.
- Continue working through my digital files updating Family Historian and sorting out folders and standardising my filenames, especially the recently scanned documents.
- Continue pulling together all my plans for researching the GEERING family of Hailsham, Sussex. The number of archives I need to visit is growing on a weekly basis, although it is probably going to be the East Sussex Record Office that will be the most important.
- I have three GEERING certificates to process and two wills (and a possible third one arriving this week). There are a few other facts that I need to record as well.
- I feel it is time that I put together a narrative or timeline for the GEERING family. This will hopefully help clarify my research plans and form the basis of a proper narrative which I hope will be the end result of my research.
