A Kiwi in search of her ancestral tribes

Back on track? ~ Sorting Saturday

So much to do!  So little time!  Too much disorganisation!

I need a plan.  Actually, I need several. At the moment I’m running around trying to chase up a heap of leads on both dead ancestors and living cousins, plus do some assignment work.  Maybe I should have monthly goals?  I’ve read them on other blogs, and I’m guessing they’d work quite well for me, make me a bit more focussed and less overwhelmed and distractable.

There are four areas I need to focus on:

  • Course work
  • Family history research
  • Research organisation and record keeping
  • Blog postings

I’m off to Dublin next weekend, primarily to visit a very ill friend, but as it’s a long weekend here in the UK, I will have a little time on the Monday to spend doing some research.  So, need to work on a plan for that.

I’m also in the middle of planning our family summer holiday, part of which will entail me traipsing round the Yorkshire countryside hunting ancestors with three kids in tow.  May even add in a little side trip to Suffolk.  Need a plan for that also.

So yeah, need to get planning!

Sorting Saturday is an ongoing series at GeneaBloggers.

  1. Hello:
    I just found your website and saw the O’Rourke name in the tag section. Patrick O’Rourke was the name of my great grandfather. He was born in 1852 in Limerick (according to death certificate) and emigrated to the USA and state of Pennsylvania in 1872. His parents were Denis O’Rourke and Mary ???? He also had a sister Mary O’Rourke Rogan, brother James (both in PA) and a sister Mrs William Collins of Limerick (In Mary O’Rourke Rogans death certificate)
    If anyone with these names in your line, please contact me.

      Unfortunately, none of these names appear in my line – see my reply to your comment on a previous post.
