3.  Breathe . . .heavily.  (Take arthritis remedy).

4.  Notify family.

5. Seek peer review*.

6.  Publicize your research via blog, social network, etc.

7.  Publish your research in a respected journal.

8. Revise family trees, files, websites, genealogies.

9. Pat self on back or do Genealogical Happy Dance again (whichever hurts less!)

10. Get back to work on next challenge.

*Peer review is the subject of an upcoming GeneaBlogie post.

  • I LOVE the genealogical happy dance! Thanks for having such a great blog. I work for a company that, like you, is focused on teaching others about the techniques and technology available to help people trace their roots. Since you have such a following, I thought you might appreciate knowing about the 2009 California Family History Expo in Redding, Calif., Oct. 16 & 17. This expo is presented by Family History Expos,, a well-established Utah-based company.

    Thanks, Donna! I don’t know if we will make it to Redding, but we’re happy to encourage others to go!

  • Craig:

    This has been an absolutely brilliant series! I so admire your thought process, logical mind, sense of humor, and willingness to share.

    There was so much good information here for my Greene/Green problem. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
