Report on my 2013 genealogy goals

In 2013 I had some great successes. I also struggled a little in setting realistic goals, that I would follow-through on. If this was a test, I'd have a B+ for last year's genealogy goals. Unless you accept extra credit...

Personal Tree Organization and Sharing: D-
  1. 35% Complete Rosetta Stone Spanish
    This goal is moving into 2014. Now that I've got some Hispanic in my family tree, I need to take learning a language more seriously. Pray for me.
  2. 46% Transcribe or help share 200 items (family letters, documents etc.)
    My gauge for this goal is the number of stories I've uploaded to FamilySearch Stories.
  3. 100% Share photos and other media on FamilySearch Family Tree
    Photos: 1374
    Documents: 171
Career and Education: A
  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 
Thanks to my genealogy blogging friend Randy Seaver for his example of giving grades to annual genealogy goals. You can see one of his similar posts here: Assessing My 2012 Genealogy Goals and Objectives
