I have six client projects:
- Mary’s Civil War ancestor project has been completed and sent to her. I included a copy of the PPT presentation I am giving to the Sons of the American Revolution next Saturday.
- I have delivered the first of two projects to Rebecca. This one was to confirm (or deny) a family tradition of Civil War ancestors on her maternal side.
- Mary’s second project is just about ready to be mailed to her. I need to make a PDF of the entire project which I will do on Monday.
- The third project is to determine whether Rebecca’s paternal ancestors are related to a signator of the Declaration of Independence. I have been unable to find the familial linkage but I have found a plausible scenario of why the family might have come to this conclusion.
- Tomorrow I meet with one of the three (and final) pro bono clients. She wants to know more about her Irish ancestors. It will be interesting to see if I can even trace her linkage across the ocean.
- Finally, I have a second “for pay” client. I know very little about this project but she wishes to confirm information on her husband’s side. She thinks this will make a nice birthday present for him and so do I.
I am very energized by these projects. Next blog posting will be about presentation of the project– not the content, but some things that can make the project look more professional.
What I have done since the last posting: worked and completed Mary’s second project and attended a conference in San Fransisco that had nothing to do with genealogy.
