52 Weeks To Better Genealogy - Challenge #23

This was actually last week's assignment from Amy Coffin of We Tree ( We were to "come up with a personal genealogy challenge of your own. Each person has different research goals and experiences. Use this week to come up with your own challenge, and then take the steps to accomplish it. Genealogy bloggers are encouraged to share their ideas and challenge their own readers."

In January another Genealogy Friend and I decided to make a list of our Genealogical Research Goals. I had Data, Research, Writing, Education and "Other" goals on my list.
Here were my Research and my Education Goals for the year:


1. Make 12 request for documents/microfilm

Ordered 3 Monroe County, OH Newspaper microfilms from OHS, ordered 3 estates from Wayne County, OH, ordered final pension payment voucher from NARA, ordered two land files from NARA

2. Order 1 German microfilm on Rheinlander or Shafferman family

3. Go on at least one research trip

Went to Hancock County, OH did research in the Library and Cannonsburg Cemetery

4. Go to at least one new research repository
