The Genealogy Blog Party: Shape Up Your Research!

Fit is not a destination. It is a way of life.  ~Unknown


New Year, New You!

Get your running shoes on, people! A new year is here, and it’s time to get in shape! 

And by that, I don’t mean you personally; I mean your genealogy research.

So, this month, let’s make some genealogy fitness training #goalz. Get your research up off the couch, kick it in the butt, and get things moving!



How are you going to “shape up” your genealogy research this year?

Possibilities include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Take a class
  • Attend a seminar or conference
  • Try a new software program
  • Read a book 
  • Learn about DNA
  • Apply for certification
  • Join a genealogical society
  • Join a lineage society
  • Take a research trip
  • Start a blog or vlog

Basically, anything that will help “shape up” your genealogy research.

Remember, no pain, no gain! 😉
