Q1: Have you made goals for your #genealogyresearch for 2014? Yes or no? #genchat

imageConfKeepJan 11, 2:06pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

Q2: Are your goals specific to a certain ancestral line or all over the place? Why? #genchat

imagesamspostingJan 11, 2:06pm via Twitter for iPadA1 #genchat Last yr. pub book on 1 ancestor. This year I want to get all fam stories out of the filing cabinet, polished & put online.

imagebetsympls612Jan 11, 2:09pm via Tweetbot for Mac

A2: My goals aren’t specific to an ancestral line. I think because I like jumping around and filling in the information as it comes #genchat

imageSallyOnTheGoJan 11, 2:09pm via tchat.io

A2 Mine are all over the place. I work on what interests me, or what new record sets might be available. #genchat

@geneapleau How will you keep yourself on track to meet your goals? #genchat

SallyOnTheGoJan 11, 2:25pm via tchat.io

A5 For #52ancestors I actually made a spreadsheet with dates and names so I planned for the year! Shocked myself. #genchat

MelTafaroJan 11, 2:25pm via Twitter for iPad

@ConfKeep A5….no system..just keep the list in front of me….shame myself to finish lol #genchat

arbutusdawnJan 11, 2:26pm via Web

A5 the main thing is consciously making time to sit down and actually work on #genealogy#genchat

imageleprchaunrabbitJan 11, 2:29pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A5 System? Have “ColorNote” app on cell & pc; can make colored stickies and write progress on them. Hide ’em too #genchat

imageAnnepastsJan 11, 2:28pm via tchat.io

A5 This year I will break down my list into quarterly goals. Need to be more manageable and realistic. #genchat

jacqistevensJan 11, 2:25pm via Mobile Web (M5)

A5 Simple but brutal: my calendar is a tough task master. Deadlines can sure keep you focused.#genchat

JenBookChickJan 11, 2:33pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

Love Evernote! RT @familytreeblog A5 – a good tool to use for tracking goals and keeping track is @evernote#genchat

Q6: Do you review your goals regularly? How do you keep on task? #genchat

imageSparrowBeth73Jan 11, 2:31pm via Web

A6: I SHOULD review my goals regularly. I probably review them 3-4 times a year. And my to-do list on Ancestry more. #genchat

imagegeneapleauJan 11, 2:30pm via tchat.io

A6 I put them on my “to do” app. works for me!#genchat

imageMillennial_GenJan 11, 2:30pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

i need to review my goals regularly, i recently made long to-do lists, but I’m scared they will fly away #genchat

imageJenBookChickJan 11, 2:30pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6 Plan on reviewing them monthly. #genchat

ConfKeepJan 11, 2:34pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6, con: For those that maintain the list of goals, do you have a specific app or tool you use for organization? #genchat

imagebetsympls612Jan 11, 2:35pm via Tweetbot for MacA6: I think because I tend to jump around when researching – it is much harder to stay on task, or on a specific task. #genchat

imageAnnepastsJan 11, 2:35pm via tchat.io A6 The app I use – paper and pen. Keep the list in my journal so I always know where it is #genchat

imagecatekunziJan 11, 2:37pm via Web A6 con – I < the sticky app that @leprchaunrabbitmentioned…the ancestry list…I use Microsoft OneNote folders and Google Drive #genchat

imagesamspostingJan 11, 2:39pm via Twitter for iPad

A6 Keeping gene to-do lists & checking progress- I type up word docs, print, and place in an old-fashioned binder. A mix of tech. #genchat

imagekatfiJan 11, 2:39pm via Tweet Button

@SparrowBeth73 There are good tutorials out for Evernote. #genchat

imagegeneapleauJan 11, 2:38pm via tchat.io@SparrowBeth73 There’s some good YouTube videos & webinars out there on #evernote#genchat

imageConfKeepJan 11, 2:40pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6, con: Do you have an accountability method? A partner to help you stay on track? #genchat#genealogy

imageclaimingkinJan 11, 2:43pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube Not to mention that collaboration ancestor research is a very good thing. There are times when 2 or 3 heads are better than just 1 #genchat

imageAncestorQuestJan 11, 2:46pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube A6 – Part of a research group for one specific line that keeps me on my toes #genchat

imageConfKeepJan 11, 2:46pm via TweetChat powered by oneQube
