I think I am going to rename this weekly post, to reflect the fact that it is becoming more about what I have done, rather than what I want to do.
Last week was very busy with emails from people who have been reading my blog, it took the focus off of my own research, which wasn’t really a bad thing. There have been some very interesting and challenging queries raised by my readers, and it has really been very stimulating, so thank you to all of you who got in touch.
So, I didn’t get much of my own work done last week, or that is how it appeared. I did however go through some ideas about so future projects, including more pub history research. I also tried to get my head around my mental block over the BATEMAN family, and think I have an idea how I am going to get myself interested on working on the family.
- Continue working through my digital files updating Family Historian and sorting out folders and standardising my filenames.
- Create a research plan for the GEERINGs of Hailsham, Sussex. I really want to find a connection with Thomas Geering and prove the connection with “the old druggist”
- Conduct a review of Gloucestershire sources available online and at the Society of Genealogist’s library and the London Family History Centre (to help with my BATEMAN research).
- Create a trial “Sussex pub history profile” to see how much work is involved and how much information I can find online, the intention being to make it a weekly feature of a (new?) blog.
