There are a few things I hope to achieve this year with my GEORGE and DAVIES family research:
- Find the correct death registration for my great-grandmother, Anne (DAVIES) GEORGE. With the third most popular Welsh surname and the most popular given name, finding the Anne's death registration has proven a challenge. Unfortunatetly, I don't know the exact date of her death. I have already one death certificate that is incorrect. To achieve this goal, I may have to order death certificates that may be incorrect just so I can eliminate them and narrow down the choices to the correct one.
- Make contact with a living George or Davies descendant. With only seven of us George descendants in Canada, we are a very small family. I would very much like to meet a cousin or two or more! There is a possibility I may have a George cousin through Genes Reunited.
- Continue documenting the life of my grandfather, Joseph Brinley George, with the goal of publishing a book about him. This is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I think this is the year to make the final push in gathering all of my documents and photos about him, get them organized and publish a book in time for Christmas 2010.
With having chosen just three goals for my George family research this year, I am confident I will succeed in achieving them all.
