Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
1) What was your best research achievement in 2015? Tell us - show us a document, or tell us a story, or display a photograph. Brag a bit! You've earned it!
2) We all have elusive ancestors. What research problem do you want to work on in 2016? Tell us where you want to research and what you hope to find.
3) Put the answers in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, or in a Facebook or Google+ post.
I wrote about my best ancestral discoveries in 2015 in My Best Ancestral Genea-Discoveries of 2015 so I won't repeat them here. There was no real BIG discovery - no new ancestral line, no breakthrough on a brickwall ancestor. The ones listed in the post fall into the category of enriching my family history by finding probate, land, military, newspaper, church, and vital records for my ancestral families.
For 2016, I anticipate doing much of the same, both online and at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City in February. In the process, I may get a breakthrough on a brickwall ancestor, or perhaps another researcher will find my blog posts and be able to extend one or more lines.
I don't anticipate being able to travel much to do onsite research in 2016 due to my and Linda's health and mobility limitations. I want to return to Massachusetts again to do onsite research, especially at the NEHGS and in local libraries, historical societies and cemeteries. I want to go to southern Ontario again to do onsite research on my Kemp and related lines. I also want to visit northern New Jersey to try to find information about my Auble and Knapp and related lines.
