So now that you have your research plan under control - all you have to do is find the time to do the research. I recently stumbled on a blog post by Kenneth Marks on The Ancestor Hunt that lists seven tips for getting down to the actual work. It isn't always as simple as it seems. You can click on the link above to read the original blog post, or read an abbreviated version below. Here are Kenneth's suggestions to make it easier for you get your research done.
I would add to this list one more item: Set research goals - have a to-do list to help keep you on track.
So make a list, gather your research plan(s) and use your time wisely. Before you know it, you will find yourself making progress.
