ANNOUNCING: FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklists



DearREADERS,
Let's get ORGANIZED! It's been a few years since Ol' Myrt here published her popular monthly organization checklists, so I'm tickled pink to announce the brand spanking new FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklists.
Right when you needed it, huh? Well, undoubtedly these weekly checklists will be the ultimate 2016 genealogy-related homework assignments. 


WHAT
Each FINALLY Get Organized! Weekly Checklist post suggests tasks designed to assist organization of existing paper and digital files, and prepare participants for upcoming research challenges. Each checklist should take no more than 1 week to complete. Some larger tasks may take longer than a week, but Ol' Myrt here will divide things up into manageable bites. The FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklists may include links to outside resources that may prove helpful. As always, you'll find encouragement with Ol' Myrt's typical relaxed writing style, designed with beginning and intermediate genealogists in mind.

Each Mondays with Myrt hangout in 2016 will spotlight the current week's checklist, so stay tuned for the panelists' reactions and additional suggestions. After all, we get by with a little help from our friends. Each FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklist post will feature a link to view the appropriate Mondays with Myrt hangout. Readers may click to view the hangout once it goes live, and each hangout is automatically archived, remaining viewable 24/7, usually within the hour after  each live recording has concluded. NOTE: Times for each  live hangout will be posted with each weekly checklist.

It isn't necessary to cross-post the link to your blog or shared Google document on each site. We consider each social media site a slightly different audience, so use the one you are most comfortable with and keep those comments coming.


HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
Yes. That's right. Ol' Myrt here is giving you a homework assignment before the ball drops in Times Square heralding in the New Year.
  • Clean up the holiday decorations, and clear a corner of your computer desk to be ready for the FINALLY Get Organized! 2016 Weekly Checklists.
  • Rest up January 1st and 2nd. You'll need it with what Ol' Myrt has in mind!

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
