The Big Dream Goal: For every identified ancestor, a complete timeline of his or her life, including the political and social climate they lived in, with complete and accurately recorded sources for each and every fact; copies of primary and secondary records scanned and backed up, with paper copies filed in an easy to understand system; a paper and digital copy of the story of their lives in a form that a descendant or cousin with only a slight interest in family history would find pleasurable to read.

The Realistic Goal: Just get the stuff into some semblance of order so it won't get pitched when my kids clear out the house some day! (Yes, kids, I hear the whispered "Thank yous"! )
