Lucky me, I have German ancestors on both my maternal and paternal lines! I am currently researching the names SICK and SELL in Schleswig-Holstein, SCHNEIDER in Hessen and KUNDERS (Conard) in North Rhineland - Westphalia. I enjoy doing German research and trying to remember some of the high school German language that I took oh so long ago.

Guess What I'm Doing

Yep, cleaning out the files.  It's not very glamorous or fun, but I do feel productive.  I'm trying to make sure that all the pictures and documents that I have "hidden" away in file folders have actually been scanned.  (Yes, I will be using my handy Flip-Pal scanner!)  I pre-ordered the 2012 Family Tree Maker upgrade and when it arrives in mid-October, I should be ready to go.

I'm also trying to get rid of the hard copy printouts of census records.  All that paper takes up a lot of space and I want to find a more permanent storage area for the files.  Right now, my genealogy addiction has taken over part of the kitchen table and floor, part of the living room, and part of the bedroom.  It's not that I have a huge collection, it's more that I don't have one area big enough for all of it.  

I will dig myself out from behind all the paper to join my fellow GeneaBloggers for the radio show tomorrow night.  The show is called "Genealogists Bore Their Families - What You Can Do About It."  And as Thomas likes to say, "GeneaBloggers Radio is about the most fun you can have with your genealogy on a Friday night."

For now, back to the paperwork.....
