Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:
Here is your assignment, should you decide to accept it (you ARE reading this, so I assume that you really want to play along - cue the Mission Impossible music!):
1) It's the New Year, and many readers and bloggers have already made resolutions, or goals, or plans for one or more tasks or projects. Or they haven't yet, but could, or should.
2) For this SNGF, please tell us what plans you've made, or what goals you've stated, or what resolutions you've averred for 2021. Writing them down may help you achieve them. Do one or more as you wish.
3) Put it in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or in a Facebook post. Please leave a link in a comment to this post so readers can find your resolutions/goals/plans.
I usually don't do this because it seems that I always fail (yes, I think I won the ##GOPA for 2020 - see below).
* Goal #1 is to apply to the General Society of Mayflower Descendants for at least one ancestral line - the William White line. Several friends of mine recently applied and two received membership in GSMD so it can be done. I feel a responsibility to do this for my cousin Laura who asked for help several years ago, and sent me the information she had collected, and I have not progressed past reviewing her material and my material. I summarized it in Do I Have Enough Information to Join Society of Mayflower Descendants? A reader in Illinois who is a GSMD member offered to create an application and thought that I had enough evidence to support my application (and hopefully Laura's and any other Seaver/Richmond descendant).
* Goal #2 is also from 2020 - to keep gathering my triangulated DNA match data from the chromosome browsers on FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritageDNA, 23andMe, and GEDmatch and create my DNA Painter display of which bits of every chromosome in my DNA came from which ancestors. I have started the gathering process with MyHeritageDNA, but I have not finished it. I need to do one of the sites each month, and finish this process, put the data into DNA Painter, and see the results.
Well ... I have hardly started this. I had all year to start it and finish it, but ... nada. No COVID-19 excuse for this one.
##What is GOPA - I know that inquiring minds want to know: Did I win the "Genealogist's Outstanding Procrastination Award" for 2020? If not, who did?
