A Genealogy Bucket List

Synced to my Google tasks from on my Android Tablet is my travel bucket list of places I  to visit, this includes, countries, cities and places of interest. It is a useful resource that I refer to whenever I am planning a trip. If a day's detour from a draft itinerary will take me to a place of interest then I adjust the itinerary to include it.

I am thinking of putting together a Genealogy Bucket List. A list of things to do, places to visit and speakers to hear that may not be directly related to my personal family history but to my growth as a genealogist or family historian.

Visitng the Family History Library and attending Rootstech last year were two items that were on my bucket list but, six days in Salt Lake City was just not enough time to satisfy me so further visits remain on the list. Other items I would add are attendance at WDYTYA Live in London and at  The Federation of Genealogical Societies Conference. I would like to join fellow genealogists on a genealogy cruise. Meeting up with some of my fellow geneabloggers from Australia and overseas is also on the list. Meeting these friends in person would give me a real buzz. Further study in the area of family and local history is something I also want to undertake.


Having written this I just discovered that it was a topic for Randy Seaver's SGNF back in July. Great minds think alike! When I post this I'll add this link to Randy's earlier post.


What is on your Genealogy Bucket List?

Great list! RootsTech is on my list as well. I'd love to travel. My great-aunt and cousins went to see "where it all began" (though I don't have their records so I don't know where that is. lol) I would love to do something very family-specific like follow travel lines or see all of the areas in which they lived. Continuing Ed opps like NIGR and Samford are on the list. Great thing to make us think about!

Not to be distracted by the Bucket List itself, I was caught up in your first "throw-away" remark: Synced to my Google tasks from on my Android Tablet is my travel bucket list of places I to visit, this includes, countries, cities and places of interest. It is a useful resource that I refer to whenever I am planning a trip

Sounds fascinating? How about a "how to" post on this?
