There doesn’t really seem to be much focus in my research at the moment, I seem to be darting all over the place at the moment as I tidy up lose ends and sort through my files.
Occasionally I will settle on one particular family or individual and dig a bit deeper, filling in more details and deciding in which direction I want to take my research.
This week I expect more of the same, with one exception. I have learnt about a book by Thomas GEERING entitled Our Sussex Parish which was first published in 1884. The parish in question is Hailsham, Sussex. My GEERING ancestors have been traced back to Hailsham, so there is a good chance that Thomas GEERING was a relation. This needs investigating, and may provide some clues to my own ancestry.
- Continue working through my digital files updating Family Historian and sorting out folders and standardising my filenames.
- Make another attempt to find something about the BATEMAN family from Gloucestershire that is going to get me hooked on researching this family.
- Find out who Thomas GEERING was, and investigate the GEERINGs in Hailsham to see if I can make a connection and progress my research on that branch of my tree.
