Reviewing January Goals

Even though it's not quite the end of the month, I'm ready to review my January goals as I head out the door for Salt Lake City. 

Prepare for the ultimate research trip - a visit to the Family History Library. 
    • I think I'm pretty well prepared. 
Attend 2nd Saturday Family History Workshop sponsored by Kentucky Genealogical Society and Kentucky Historical Society.
    • The topic was "Preserving Your Family Treasures" presented by Jennifer Spence and Louise Jones, both curators for KHS. They discussed handling, storing and preserving artifacts and paper materials. 
Complete and submit lesson 4 of the NGS Home Study Course. 
    • This one fell through the cracks. Lesson 4 requires a visit to a local library to evaluate their genealogy holdings. I just never got around to it with all the prep work for FHL so this rolls over to February.
Write 8 blog posts.
    • This is #8, #9 is scheduled for Monday and there might even be one more from Salt Lake City before the end of the month. 
Determine if I can get by in Salt Lake for a week without a laptop. 
    • I've tested my Android tablet for everything I can think of that I might want or need to do next week. This process has actually made me start liking my tablet a little more. Maybe I'll love it by the time I get back.

Not too bad. I halfway expected from the start that I wouldn't get the NGS-HSC lesson done. February's goals are coming up Monday.
