My 2013 goals update

Personal Tree Research
Find 10 or more end-of-line extensions
  1. Frederick Bewig (emigration 1853) ancestors through ~1678
  2. Henrietta Ehlers (emigration 1853) ancestors through ~1748
  3. Johannes Schneider (b.1754) ancestors through ~1610
  4. Christina Adler (daughter emigrated pre-1849) ancestors through ~1660
  5. Mary Reinhard (emigration pre-1854) ancestors through ~1703
  6. Margaret Hahn (emigration pre-1845) ancestors through ~1726
  7. Frank Dunkes (emigration pre-1851) ancestors through ~1692
Personal Tree Organization and Sharing
  1. Learn Spanish
    I explored lots of programs before settling on a goal to complete the 5 levels of Rosetta Stone. I am on level 2, but still would like to complete the program by the end of the year if possible. While my own ancestry is not Hispanic, I can see I will have the opportunity to serve others in this area.
  2. Transcribe or help share 200 pages (family letters, documents etc.)
    This one is low priority, but worthwhile.
    I have about 20 letters/documents in two collections:
    Palmer B. Holdridge Civil War Letters
    Transcriptions of family letters
  3. Share photos and other media on FamilySearch Family Tree
Career and Education
  1. Attend RootsTech 
  2. Teach a family history Sunday School 
  3. Help provide feedback and stay involved in social media 
  4. Continue as usual with work
