2018 Goals: Family History Project
Because I'm only trying to work back a few generations, and in good detail, I feel as if this project shouldn't be taking me so long. Zzzzzz.
I suspect it's because I'm combining names and dates and photographs and timelines, and interesting paper and layouts in scrapbook form, rather than just listing listing listing.
Problematically, I'm listing willy-nilly and my files and photos are in as much chaos as if I'd never worked on the project at all. How is that possible?
Must get a solid organizational plan for all materials and information already gathered.
Decide on a good layout for the book itself.
Tell a good story. Nobody will look at these if a good story isn't told.
Settle on a family tree graphic, fill it in and use it to guide everything.
Organzie all files.
Organize all photographs.
