Getting Organized – Making Plans

32 Comments

 

Sometimes, when I feel overwhelmed, I don’t do a darn thing from my to-do list and instead, I tackle some sort of project that I’ve really wanted to get done but didn’t have time to do, and didn’t really need to do.  It is a super-weird-totally-nerdy-strangely-productive form of procrastinating.  Better than watching TV, right?  😂

So last week, I avoided my to-do list and tackled one of those wish list projects.  I went through my entire blog and updated a page you can find right up there☝🏻 at the top of my blog entitled, “My Ancestors“.

It is a list of every person I have written about or mentioned on my blog, mostly, with links to those posts.  I hope this will be helpful for extended family members to find things I have written that may be of interest to them.

It also helped me to see areas of my tree that I haven’t written much about and feel a bit more direction on how to prioritize a few posts I have had dancing about in my thoughts.

The day after I finished updating the page, my sister stopped by my house.  She mentioned a photo of our great grandma that she can remember seeing somewhere.  I whipped out my phone and was able to quickly look at each post about her and see the accompanying photos.  Awesome!

So, feel free to check out my new procrastination masterpiece by clicking the page link above – or here – or by scrolling on because I pasted that big beauty below.

 

Family members, please feel free to give me some input.  I made this page for you, so if you think it could use some adjustments, I am happy to hear your suggestions.  For instance, I am wondering if I should break up the last two lists into four – the same two categories, but broken up by maternal and paternal…?

 

FYI – I added three fancharts, seen above, at the top of the page with captions.  One fanchart is for my Dad, one for my mom’s mom, and one for her biological father.  I don’t generally mention him because he is still alive, and, well, I’m guessing the term “biological” probably clued you into the other reason.  The man I call Grandpa is still living so there is hardly any trace of him anywhere on my blog.

 

Happy Monday, I hope you are able to tackle some wonderful project that will make you feel awesome, very, very soon!  xoxo

 

 

 

 

Listed below are the ancestors and family members I have written about on this blog.  The list has four sections – Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Direct Line Ancestors, and Other Family Members.  All individuals are listed in alphabetical order by surname.  Women are listed by maiden surname.  If the individual is my current end of line person or brick wall (bummer!), their name is italicized and bright blue.  All ancestors who were an end of line person when I started this blog, but are no longer a brick wall, have this next to their name – 🎉, because that is something to celebrate!  Family members from my maternal side have a pink double heart before their name and family members from my paternal side have a blue heart before their name.

  2. This is fantastic Amberly. What a cool resource. You inspire me (and remind me how much my own research has stalled). Hope you are having a great week, and that everyone in the whanua (family) is well.

  3. Wow, how did you do that, and how long did it take?? I tell people to use the search box, and that seems to work well. (It’s also how I find old posts.) You amaze me sometimes!

    • Wow, thank you for the huge compliment, Amy. I actually created the page a long time ago and had a handful of links on there. I just went through my blog post by post and made the list of post titles under each person’s name and turned them into links. Based on your blog, I think you know how to do each of those things. If I’m not answering your question completely, let me know. It took a few hours – 5ish…? I also use the search box and have tried to be consistent with my tags to help others, but I LOVE this list I created and am super happy with the result. Now I just need to keep it up. 🙂

      • I applaud your work, but I don’t think I will go that route! I am not as kind to my readers—they will have to use the search box!!

        • Haha! I have to admit that a big part of my motivation was for myself. I’m not as methodical in my blogging as you are, meaning I skip all around my tree. So I easily forget what I have written about and what I haven’t and end up doing a search using the search box and then get annoyed at having to click to the next post over an over again to check everything. This way I can see it in list form and figure out what I’m after a bit faster. If I were as methodical as you or Cathy, I would not need this list. 😉

        • It’s interesting to see how different people structure their research and their blog. I don’t think of it as methodical—I think of it as easier. I’d go crazy jumping from one line to another for just the reason you stated—I wouldn’t remember what I’d already learned or written. I basically research and then write and don’t do much research too far ahead of when I will write because my brain can’t retain stuff for that long any more.

          Liked by 1 person

        • It really is interesting. I have so many irons in the genealogy fire that I’m skipping around my tree based on when records come in (that I’ve ordered), or I gather new info from extended family, etc. I like working on several people at the same time, but most people do not. 😉

        • I’d get overwhelmed that way. But whatever works for each of us is what matters!

  9. I love your new procrastination masterpiece!! I have a similar list for Ancestors I’ve written about on my blog. I’ve been good about keeping it updated with the ancestors I wrote about during the three years I did the 52 Ancestors but I believe there are some strays who need to be added.
