Do you have a list of quarantine genealogy projects you’ve been working on? 

As many of us mark one year at home today, it’s a good time to take stock. Look that list over and give yourself credit for what you’ve done. I marvel at some long-standing projects I completed. At the same time, I lament the remaining items on my to-do list. Then I realize I was too ambitious in my thinking about how this time could be used.

Research Continues

Free and subscription sites like FamilySearch, Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage are up and running. And digital archives await for our online family history research. And so research continues. And societies and conferences planners have done a great job transitioning to online learning via webinars.

But if you’re looking for some quick wins, following are quarantine genealogy projects I’ve suggested during the past year. Pick one or do them all.
