May was a fairly productive month, but much of what I accomplished was organizational so doesn’t show much. I need to better divide my time into organizational and research time.
I did finish the draft of the William Boorman will, which is pretty exciting because it names children including my ancestor Ann Boorman who married William Denman. I’ve sent the original and the transcript off to my cousin Claudia to have a fresh pair of eyes read the original and make sure I’ve been accurate in my transcription.
I also have two new Denman relatives in the DNA pipeline and am impatiently awaiting results (even though one was only mailed from England last Friday). I hope both of these will produce interesting results and I will be writing more about them.
For this coming month, I will continue to work on the upcoming wedding family tree. I have the groom’s in pretty good shape and need to make sure the bride’s is in matching good shape. I will still need to pester their parents for family pictures. Then I need to make decisions about a visual presentation for the new couple.
I also will try to spend some time on my husband’s lines this month. We have a family reunion coming up for his side in early July, and I want to know what my questions are as well as to refresh my memory about the people and connections.
These two projects along with some further work on my organization will keep me as occupied as I have the time for this busy month.
