My genealogy day - 27 January 2011

Pretty much all genealogy, all day, except in the afternoon when we went to our financial advisor and went out to dinner.

*  Read email and blogs, transcribed and posted Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension Papers: Deposition (Part 1) of the Widow and then wrote and the Genealogical Community. 

*  Got cleaned up, had lunch, answered some emails and worked on the Chula Vista Carriage House problem.  Found the property on Google Maps.  Worked a bit in Legacy trying to merge a free-form master source into a template created source - it won't do it because they are different types.

*  We left at 2:30 p.m. for the financial consultant, and met Tami at 4:15 for dinner at Mimi's Cafe in Mission Valley.  Traffic was terrible going home - back at 6 p.m.

*  Made an LFT7 GEDCOM file and imported it into RootsMagic 4 to see if RM would merge two different sources - one free-form and one template created.  Easily.  Now I have a decision to make about my sources - template or free-form?  And which program is easiest to work with to do it?

*  Wrote 2011 Ultimate Family History Journey Sweepstakes and "Mining Genealogical History in Kansas" with Ruth Himan.  Found and captured the Table of Contents I made for the 1991 CV history book.  Checked Facebook, updated the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours working on the CV100 problem, and 2.0 hours working in genealogy software.
