And now for something completely different. The family history project startup poll!

I posted my last Family History project How to Blog this morning. Based on that first I will share the links to the series.

The poll is around starting the project. Getting ready, pulling together the concept and well planning your attack!!!

Let’s figure out how quickly you get your Family History Project off the ground!

  • There are boxes and boxes of pictures in XYZ’s garage.

    • Having lots of pictures is scary. But you have to start with the first scan!
    • I need to get a scanner!
    • I need to set a scanning goal.
  • I have my scanning started when do I start posting?

    • Set a goal of blogging after you reach XYZ number of scans.
    • Or do what I did, start sharing right away.
  • What should I share my project?

    • There are several options including Virily, a great site for both pictures and text.
    • I don’t have a Youtube Channel or a Podcast (they are easy to start)
    • I am scared no one will read this.
  • It is scary to share memories. You aren’t always sharing for people reading today.

    • I am sharing my family history for my children and grandchildren.
    • I started my family history to share with the world!
  • How can I convert my blog into a family history book?

    • I use Blog2Print they do a great job
    • There are a number of other tools that also work.
    • I am going to do it myself by copying my files into a word processor!

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

    • The worst thing for me was the reality that happened. Sitting there in my father’s study. Looking at all the slides, pictures and memories. I spent the next 79 blogs writing memories of my father. Each of those blogs hurt. Not to write, but knowing every single time that I could have shared them when he was alive. I lost that chance. Never again.

      • But you know how much your kids love you, he knew as well. My dad is gone too. We can’t beat ourselves up with I wish I had of done this or told him that. I totally believe they knew and know. My dad was the best dad ever, and I know I will cry many tears, but they will be good ones in a bitter sweet way.
