The Genealogy Do-Over: 2016 Topics

The Genealogy Do-Over switches to a monthly format for topics in 2016 - here is the lineup. Are you ready to jump start your genealogy?

The Genealogy Do-Over 2016 Topics

The Genealogy Do-Over started in January 2015 as a weekly program lasting 13-weeks. There have been four cycles of the Do-Over and the feedback from participants has been important to the Genealogy Do-Over program.

Based on input at The Genealogy Do-Over Facebook group, we will be switching to a monthly format for topics. I’ve taken the 13-week program and have rearranged some of the groups for better workflow and to shorten the program to 12 parts.

The Genealogy Do-Over will start on Friday, 1 January 2016 with Month 1, and the topics will be Setting Previous Research Aside and Preparing to Research. Here is the complete list of monthly topics:
