Genealogy Do-Over Week 4: Bullet Journaling and Stuck-on-Sources

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.

  1. Debbie, I also have the Stuck-on-Sources post-it notes and I HEART THEM! I'm taking stacks of them with me to SLC next week!

    I'm going to have to check out the Bullet Journal thing. It looks like it might be something I can use ... (as I side-eye the stack of failed planners/journals/calendars on my closet shelf). Maybe this will be "the one." Thanks for the tip! :)
