I haven’t actively worked on the Dukes project this week. I need to just get there and do it. But regardless, the events for this week were to manage projects and tasks and tracking searches.
To manage projects, I have complex systems in play that I’ve already described in my Goals post. I won’t revisit them, as they are working for me. What WASN’T working was my daily home to-do lists. I’m trying a new system called Bullet Journal. So far, I’m loving it. Working great in a regular ol’ Moleskinenotebook.
For search tracking, I use post-its made by the Silicon Valley Computer Genealogy Group, called, “Stuck-on-Sources.” I have them handy as I search and I just jot stuff in that I find (or don’t). I stick these right on the Family Group Sheet and Research Checklists that I’ve created.
