My genealogy to-do list for the week ahead (week 19)

9 May

Last week was an interesting week, I devoted much time going through my digital files, and have made very good progress in getting them sorted. I am now left with 20 surname folders left to sort out. The problem is that these 20 folders are the biggest and most disorganised folders.

I didn’t get any work done in relation to the GEERING family. I fear I am losing momentum on this particular project, so this week I really must get things moving again.

I spent too much time last week looking at websites on trig points and benchmarks. At least I thought it was far too much time, but it was interesting and enjoyable, and I think I might have a new project coming out of it, so in retrospect it probably wasn’t too much time.

By the end of the week I felt I needed to get out and do some proper research, so I took a visit to the West Sussex Record Office to try and tie up some loose ends. Now I have a pile of papers to sort out as well as my digital files.

  • Sort out and capture all the information collected at the West Sussex Record Office, and update my to-do list.
  • I still need to contact the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain about my GEERINGs to see if they might have some records for my research.
  • Book a seat at the East Sussex Record Office and order the documents I need to view for my GEERING research.
  • I am going to tackle ten folders this week, eight of the smaller ones, the TROWER folder, and the GEERING folder (that should help me focus back on where my GEERING research is going).
