Family History Month Day 22: Making Time

This month I have been writing little bits and ideas for doing family history. But what good is it if you don't have time.

That's why it's important to make the time. Schedule it into your week. Maybe on Sunday afternoons, or half an hour in the evening after the kids go to bed. A regular time to sit and do work can help you feel more organized about it, and putting it into your schedule can help keep it a priority so you won't miss out or forget.

Of course, there are some of us who love genealogy so much we don't have to schedule it, we do it in all our spare time (well, maybe not all, but much of it). But it's still important to have a good block of time to focus on genealogy so you don't make mistakes and connect with the wrong families.
