Weekly Planner: Start a To-Do List

Last week, the Weekly Planner suggested we Inventory an Ancestor, so this week let’s take the next logical step and formulate a plan for filling in those blank spaces in our inventory. Narrow down time frames for vital records using a timeline and other information you have gathered. Write down reasons why you may have been unable to locate the record and then form a research plan. With your to-do list you’ll be prepared to move your research forward–or better yet, backward!

  1. I’m looking forward to retirement when I’ll have more time to follow through in a more thoughtful manner on my research gaps. Thanks for the ideas.

  2. I’d like to create a timeline but not sure how to begin or what it should look like–any suggestions?

  3. To Polly White Rash – If you go to Ancestry.com and click on “Learning Center” and then type in the word “timeline”, a list of articles on the subject will come up. They are all very informative and helpful. Good luck.
