Well my weekly update is actually an update after two weeks but what’s a week between friends and family!
The stats on my website haven’t changed much in the past two weeks. I have added several updates to the blog and I have been working on the January Getting Organized Checklist from DearMYRTLE! I am slowly getting through the January Checklist items. I am in the process of setting up my new genealogy area in the extra bedroom. I have added a shelf for my new binders and put my table and chair in close proximity. I found the copy stand that Dad had made me a while ago and I am ready to use it to get all my photos copied. I have also gathered all my genealogy information and STUFF from all around the house and put it in my new genealogy room! Then I printed my pedigree charts and put them up on the wall for inspiration! I am getting those family group sheets added to my notebooks and I am going to work on getting all my documents filed this weekend! Luckily many of those documents were all in sheet protectors so at least I have most of that done!
Another update to come next week!
The amount of data on my website is only a small fraction of the information that I have. The website only includes the cleaned-up data on my ancestors with all living people excluded.
I have 1172 individuals, 355 families with 315 unique surnames and 65 master source entries in my offline database. My website statistics are as follows:
|Total Males||23 (56.1%)|
|Total Females||17 (41.46%)|
|Total Unknown Gender||1 (2.44%)|
|Total Unique Surnames||20|
|Average Lifespan1||65 years, 16 days|
|Earliest Birth (Belle GRIGG)||14 Jun 1872|
|Date of Last GEDCOM Import||08 Jan 2011 14:23:03|

|1||Age-related calculations are based on individuals with recorded birth and death dates. Due to the existence of incomplete date fields(e.g., a death date listed only as "1945" or "BEF 1860"), these calculations cannot be 100% accurate.|
I am starting a new process of blogging each Friday or Saturday on my genealogy findings and updates for the previous week. I am going to include my thoughts on what I find and how it helps me to understand or question my previous genealogy research, the current statistics for my website (to allow me to look back at the end of the year and see how my website information has progressed throughout the year), and one or two of the new items I added to the website during the previous week.
