At the beginning of November, I decided to do a 30 x 30 challenge. Research for 30 minutes every day for 30 days. You can read more about the 30 x 30 challenge at Organize Your Family History.
Well I started off strong with being focused in my research and answering specific questions and working on focused research problems. As the month wore on I went off on my tangents a bit more but did research 30 minutes a day for all but 2 days. Some of the research was just checking out new DNA matches but it is research.
So my goal the next time I do this challenge is to stay more focused on my questions. I did do a preliminary application for 2 lineage societies so that was part of my challenge to myself so I will be polishing those up in December and sending them out.
I really liked the premise of this challenge and will definitely be doing it again thought I don’t think November or December is the ideal time of year to do them.
