The Bucket List GeneaMeme

Photo from  TechRaga's Gallery   

As I sit here contemplating my trip to Salt Lake City for the Rootstech conference next week I am wondering what sort of things are on other genealogists' Bucket Lists. A trip to the Family History Library had been on my bucket list until last year


I invite all genealogists and family history freaks to join me by sharing your bucket list of events, places, people and resources you would most like to experience before you leave this mortal earth. If you don't have a blog and wish to participate you can send your responses to me in an email and I will pop them into a blog post on the Geniaus blog. Please let me know when you participate by a comment on this post or by email and I'll collate a list of responses on this blog. 

 
It would be appreciated if genealogists would let the meme run its course before copying and republishing it with alterations and amendments.

Jill, is it okay to add extras beyond #20? Sounds like fun..something to ponder.

Jill Ball said...

Pauleen That's why I added the question at the bottom - I hoped people might add any extra bits there. Long essays most welcome.

Sorry it's not clear.

I am new to all this. Am experimenting with a blog right now. i have plenty to write about but at times feel technologically challenged. I would like to answer some of the questions on the bucket list and post it to my blog. I'm going to roots tech next week.
