Most of the year, I have focused on putting my new husband's genealogy together based on various sources, and then verifying names, dates and places with the census and vital records. As with any new project, it's in its infancy and not very impressive at the moment.
However it was exciting to learn that Callahan cousins still reside in Annagolgan, Roslea, County Fermanagh, Ireland! Visiting them is a priority for 2012.
Since most of the year was dedicated to writing (and it is going very well), I would like to spend more time exploring England in 2012. While my son is here for the next 6 months, I want to spend a weekend seeing Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Salisbury Plain.
My main intention for the year is to get a map of England and mark the places I need to visit for research purposes. Once I have this in front of me, it will be much easier to plan trips, learn what facilities (libraries, historical societies, etc.) are in those areas, and get organized for my research.
We live here for two more years and I want to make the most of it.
Happy New Year! May 2012 be a year of breaking down brick walls and finding elusive ancestors!
