I am rather liking this Sunday Synopsis, especially since the week has been marked by more productivity in the writing and genealogy realm.
1- completion of transcribing, posting and scanning the last of the Letters from my Uncle Ralph. WAHOO! Also set up the archival boxes in which to house the letters.
2- Transcribed and posted two newspaper articles about a shooting tragedy in my McPherson family.
3- Wrote a post on my aunts' cousin, Jerry Rose (born Gladys Irene McPherson).
4- Research on the family of James Septimus McPherson; made cold calls to a couple of likely prospect -- alas not to be. Made a list of potentials for cold calls.
5- 14 hrs of writing, transcribing, posting items into Roots'n'Leaves and Letters of My Uncle Ralph
I am pleased with the work for this week. However, my goal for the coming week is to increase my writing time to at least 6 hours -- not transcribing, researching or making lists --- just writing. Last week, I started writing an ancestor's history in his voice so that I got more of sense of the person behind the facts. Actually, I wrote several pieces in different voices -- pride, fear, love, anger, happy, lust, jealous. I think I will do this as a warm-up writing exercise -- kills two birds with one stone or as my sis says, "She's talking to dead people again."
