Too Many Things To Do

I have so many things to do: Find out what kind of ship John Olsson was the captain of; Get in touch with several Catholic Churches in New York to get marriage records; Bring some records up to date in my software program; Contact a historian in Newburgh, New York; Wash my clothes...

This brought to mind that many genealogists also have many things to do. Perhaps a planner can help. I have a planner that lists all the things that I want to accomplish per day. I plan for one week at a time and I write in pencil. That way I can move things around if I run out of time. Don't forget that writing your family history takes up time too.
