Let’s Get Started

I am following the challenge issued by Amy Johnson Crow to write about 52 Ancestors in 52 weeks.

A simple word, start, but start what? For me, it means starting my 2018 genealogy journey.

I have decided that I will create a second genealogy book this year. The focus will be my maternal Stewart family. I do not have an abundance of information but it can be surprising once you begin gathering information, there is often more than a person thought.

How will I start?

  1. Creating a file on my computer labeled Stewart book, start moving documents & pictures into it, start thinking of the plan
  2. Start asking cousins for their input
  3. Start envisioning what records to include
  4. Start planning if I need to visit an Archives
  5. Start putting my paper files for the Stewart family in a box by my computer

So here we go with the beginning of 2018 and the start to many new genealogy discoveries and accomplishments!


What will you start in 2018?

    G’day Patricia,
    An interesting start to the year. I have never thought to follow one line and make it into a book. I tend to have lots of names, dates and places, but need to start filling in with stories.

      Tracking down the stories can be tricky but it is rewarding to fill in the details of our ancestors lives!
