The topic for the 101st Carnival of Genealogy is My genealogy research/writing plan for 2011. Without further ado, here is my plan:

1. Finish my 52 Weeks of Online American Digital Archives and Databases series. And when I'm done, I want to expand them into an eBook. I also want to continue adding to my Online Historical Newspapers and Online Historical Directories websites. (writing)

2. Visit my local Family History Center and delve into Levi Edward McLallin and Clarissa Cleveland. My life has gotten so busy, I haven't visited the FHC in ages. I would love to pursue Levi's and Clarissa's ancestries back at least one more generation. (research)

3. Find every ancestor on every U.S. Federal Census possible, download the image, add the info to my database, and cite my sources correctly. Sounds like a huge goal, but I've already begun it using Google Docs' spreadsheets. (organization)

4. Get my resume updated and use contacts and social media to get the word out to the public about my presentations. (speaking)

I'm keeping my goals simple this year, because I've found from last year that the simpler they are and the shorter the list, the more likely they are to happen!
