I'm planning on participating in round two of the Genealogy Do-Over, hosted by Thomas MacEntee of GeneaBloggers.
I had kept an eye on the Genealogy Do-Over Facebook Group throughout the first cycle, and did do a bit of clean up of my genealogy files and such; however, I spent so much time stressing over the organizing side of things that I didn't really follow through on much.
During this second cycle, I'm committed to keeping up, participating fully, and completing the program. I am fully aware that my family's research can only benefit from this process.
Below is the schedule planned for this cycle. I'm posting it here, as I plan to use the topic headings as a sort of index for my own posts in the coming weeks.
