    Genealogy Goals Success

    Each time Amy Coffin posts an update to her 2011 Genealogy Goals on the WeTree blog, I get motivated to get back to work myself. It's a funny thing about sharing your goals with someone else; whether it's a book you want to read, a place to visit, or finding a #16 grandmother, just committing the idea to someone else in words seems almost magical. Here it is, barely four months since Amy and I met and shared a few personal genealogy challenges -- Amy is checking off those goals right and left.
    Congratulations on finding that elusive ancestor, Amy. I can't wait to see your beautiful family tree with ALL those generation names complete.

    I agree that one of the most effective ways to reach any kind of goal is to share it -- just gives extra motivation to know someone knows what you've committed to and can cheer you on! My goal was to find our more about how my ethnic Germans got to Transylvania. I now have the document that shows they left Alsace in 1770 -- when the supposed "first" was just a few months old! Thanks for reminding me to share my goals.

    Congrats to you too, Linda, on finding those migrating Deutsche. Now that you can check off that goal, what's next?

    Thanks, dear. I seriously would not have done this without you. :)
