Week 1 – 2-8 January 2015
 Setting Previous Research Aside
Well everything is put away

 Preparing to Research
Clean up the desk area
Set up RM6 to start a new database
Set up a Research Log (been a long time since I used one)
Review personal book library (need to double check what I have)
Create a Genealogy Calendar (calendar of #GeneDoOver and blog entries)
Set up/Re-organize electronic files
Check out Evernote, Evidentia and other programs (not sure budget will allow)
Think about a binder system
Make a list of relatives to contact (remaining uncle and cousins)

 Establishing Base Practices and Guidelines
Standardize electronic file naming practices (be consistant)
Create to-do list for research
Citing Sources correctly (may have to invest in book/chart)
