"Lately" - My Family Tree Research

Lately,  I've been jumping on Ancestry.com for about 45 minutes, 4 days a week.  It's not much time to do research but it is enough time to refamiliarize myself with people on my family tree, remind myself of where I left off on my research, reply to any emails and messages, and review new DNA matches (close matches, that is.....at least 4th cousin or less).

What does this do for me?   It keeps me connected to my family history.  Along the way, I get a chance to add, edit, and correct anything that is not quite right.

I hope to embark on a larger photo scanning project soon.  I have hundreds of photos and about 80% of them are labeled.  That is an amazing gift in and of itself.  The labeling is key in the process of reviewing photos and matching pictures to the names on my family tree.

I can't wait to carve out a little more time to work on this.  Maybe that will happen once my children head back to school in August.  Until then, a quick 45 minute review most days, will suffice.
