I've been working on LDS Mexican Colonias, a sub-project of the LDS project for most of this year. In the next week or so, I'm planning to wind up my work on that. I have tagged/added over 2000 profiles for the category. It's been very informative -- if you don't know about the Mormon westward migration, you don't really know how the American West was settled. In the process, I managed to connect to numerous small clusters of unconnected profiles. But I'm just about ready to move on. Mostly tying up loose ends now.
I'm ready for my next undertaking, about the people that have counties named after them in the USA. I've done a lot of prep work already, in a giant spreadsheet of over 1400 people. Some have WikiTree profiles, some connected some not. I've got Wikipedia or other starter links for most of them. It was some effort to find dates for some of them. There's some Saints (Santa Clara &c) that might be advisable to skip, and some Indians, too, from the time before written records.
I don't set goals weekly, or even track the numbers. But I do have a goal this week. I've got instructions and I'm going to set up the category page for Namesakes US Counties. Never done that before. First thing I can do is go through and tag the existing, connected profiles. That shouldn't take long as I've already got them all marked in the spreadsheet. Next will be the ones with unconnected profiles; connecting can take awhile, so connecting over 100 unconnected profiles will take into next year. Once I've got it set up, others will be welcome to contribute, should they be so inclined, which might move it along a bit.
Every so often, I take a side trip. No telling when they'll crop up. Lately, for example, I took side trips to connect when I came across names from my own ancestry. Lately, that has been Eddy, Fairchild, Hatch & Kellogg. And from time to time, I'll pick an unconnected notable and work on connecting them, or even add a new one. For example, I worked on honoring the memory of Arnold Palmer by creating a profile and connecting him.
There is a fundamental change in focus for the upcoming. There'll be one of my periodic reviews of the whole Watch List, too. You never know when an outstanding request as been acted on!
There's always plenty to do.
