Saturday Night Genealogy Fun – My Genea-Bucket List

It’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with genealogy extraordinaire – Randy Seaver — and tonight’s mission, should I decide to accept it, is:

Knowing that a “Bucket List” is a wish list of things to do before death:

What is on your Genea-Bucket List?  What research locations do you want to visit?  Are there genea-people that you want to meet and share with?  What do you want to accomplish with your genealogy research?  List a minimum of three items – more if you want!”

My Genea-Bucket List consist of:

1. Attending and completing Boston University’s Online Genealogical Research Certificate Program, then seek certification through the Board for Certification of Genealogists.

2. According to recent mtDNA test results, my Haplogroup origin is Ghana. Therefore, I would love to travel to the Western Region of the Republic of Ghana where the Ahanta people that I descend from are located. I would especially like to visit during celebration and festival times . . . woo-hoo!

3. Publishing a historical fiction children’s picture book that I started a few years ago that tells the story of Quakertown — the removal of a thriving African-American community by 1923 to make way for a Civic Center Park in Denton, Texas.

Do you have a genea-bucket list? Feel free to share it with me!
