continuing 52 weeks of Genealogy

I had shared with you a few blogs ago, a website that was titled 52 Weeks of Genealogy, which for a reason unknown to many stopped at 22 weeks. I put mine in a binder and printed out pages for each of our grandchildren for each week. I also put a copy of the weeks intro page in the back, after I sent out the copies via ‘snailmail’ to our grandchildren. They love to get things in the mail too.

This is what I came up with to continue on and you can add or change as best suites your thoughts:

Starting in 1970, the experience and journey has created well-seasoned researching techniques. Current and active participation in continuing education, staying up to date with technology, and including weekly contact with other professional genealogists: including family historians, genealogy clubs and historical societies, keeps the knowledge and ongoing learning in an ever changing world up to date.
