Bucket List GeneaMeme

February 11, 2012

I’ve been waiting impatiently for the next Geneameme challenge from Geniaus and finally it was  revealed a couple of weeks ago. I have been anxious to get to it, but due to circumstances, mainly of work, have not had a spare minute to mull it over until now.

 Geniaus says:    “I invite all genealogists and family history freaks to join me by sharing your bucket list of events, places, people and resources, you would most like to experience before you leave this mortal earth”.

This Meme really calls to me as I have such a long to-do list and never seem to find enough time to cross too many things off.  Much of my research will need to wait a few years, until retirement, but until then I’m just doing whatever I can do, when I can do it, and trying not to stress over not doing enough.

The list should be annotated in the following manner:

Things you would like to do or find: bold type

Things you haven’t done or found and don’t care to: plain type

You are encouraged to add extra comments after each item

So here’s my Bucket List GeneaMeme

  1. The genealogy conference I would most like to attend is Rootstech 2013 (definitely going) & Who Do You Think You Are in London next February (desperately want to go)
  2. The genealogy speaker I would most like to hear and see is Thomas McEntee of GeneaBloggers
  3. The geneablogger I would most like to meet in person is Geniaus  and  Judy Webster (sorry can’t choose just one)
  4. The genealogy writer I would most like to have dinner with is Chris Paton  of  British GENES –  due to his immense knowledge of Scotland the interesting stories he has to tell
  5. The genealogy lecture I would most like to present is the story of my ancestor who was murdered by her husband and how this sparked my obsession with family history
  6. I would like to go on a genealogy cruise that visits. (I have been on a genealogy cruise  recently, which I enjoyed but would rather stay on land for a while now)
