Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:
Knowing that a "Bucket List" is a wish list of things to do before death:
1) What is on your Genealogy Bucket List? What research locations do you want to visit? Are there genea-people that you want to meet and share with? What do you want to accomplish with your genealogy research? List a minimum of three items - more if you want!
2) Tell us about it in a blog post of your own (please give me a link in Comments), a comment to this post in Comments, a status line or comment on Facebook., or a Google+ Stream post.
Think big! Have fun! Life is short - do genealogy first!
1) The ancestral family history place that I want to visit is South Petherton, Somerset, England. My VAUX family came from there in about 1840, immigrating to Erie County, New York. I've been fortunate that several Vaux cousins have done quite a bit of research there and have defined the ancestral families very well. But there's no substitute for walking in places that you ancestors walked, worshipped and are buried.
2) I need to visit the New England Historic Genealogical Society again. I last visited there in 1997 (I think!) and have found many more New England ancestors since then. I especially want to delve into the manuscript collection. I want to discuss my Thomas Newton and Hannah Smith brick wall problems with the experts.
3) I want to publish books about my ancestors (either digital or paper) for my children, grandchildren, brothers and cousins. I've done two limited editions myself, but they are out-of-date now. I also want to publish photo albums (probably digital) for my family.
4) I would like to go to every national and regional genealogy conference held during one calendar year. In the process, I'd like to visit every major regional and national genealogy repository in the same year. This would be like visiting every major league ballpark in a season. I'm not sure that I can afford this, and my wife might not approve, but, hey, it's a wish list!
Okay, I showed you mine, now show me yours!
