10.  Write up John Shelton and do research on Shelton line.  Move to 2013. 
11.  Write at least one post per week on genealogy blog and family blog.  Trying to do this.  Dad’s death made me realize it’s even more important.
12.  Do not get sidetracked by other projects.  Working on it.

With my goals nicely in progress, I feel like it’s time to start brainstorming what I want to accomplish in my genealogy life next year.

Some Possible Genealogy Goals for 2013:
·         Update Dukes of Mixager.  Yes, there are already updates.
·         Work on the Shelton line- I’d like to documentation each generation.
·         Get complete documentation to Miles Price.  Not sure what I don’t have, but I’m sure it’s something.
·         Write a book about Miles Price.
·         Take two classes each quarter with National Institute of Genealogical Studies.
·         Work on my genealogy database- I want to get it moved to RootsMagic, but by hand.  I would like to start with me and work my way back manually and so I will start with my Conner and Konst/Kunst lines (and Shelton while I work on that line).
·         Rebuild Capa in Google Earth
