For this week, I’d like to call your attention to Tonia Kendrick‘s blog Tonia’s Roots. Tonia mostly posts about her own genealogical exploits, and you can learn a lot from following her posts. I had the pleasure of meeting her at FGS10 in Knoxville and look forward to seeing her again at future conferences.
I’m especially intrigued and inspired by Tonia’s Notebook Project. Tonia has concentrated on being as paperless as possible as she investigates her family history. However, out of concern for the usefulness of her online and electronic data for future generations, she is now developing a set of notebooks about each branch of her family. These she plans to bequeath to a local library — what a wonderful idea!
Also impressive is Tonia’s diligence in setting up to-do lists for herself each month and reporting back on how she did. The posts about her genealogical discoveries also also are thorough and highly organized. Follow her blog — she’ll inspire you!
