Needing a Kickstart

Do you ever need external stimulation to keep your projects going?

I sure do.

After several months of being away from my genealogy projects I’ve had a difficult time getting refocused.  Some time ago a cousin asked for information about her grandfather; and that got me going for a while.  Recently another query from someone researching a similar line got me into a temporary flurry of activity.

Now I’ve rediscovered the FamilyTreeWebinars and the juices are beginning to flow again.  Finally. 

Webinars about researching in Illinois and in Tennessee motivated me to get back in the hunt for one of my husband’s lines; and also for some of my distant cousins.

My genealogy society does not meet during the summer so I’m really looking forward to September and the first meeting of the season.  They always give me the kick in the butt that I seem to need.

If anyone reading this has some tips on self motivation, I’d be grateful if you’d post a comment.
