Blogger seemed to crash on Wednesday evening where I couldn't post or edit anything, hence no post on 5 January. A short summary:
Wednesday, 5 January:
* Worked in the morning on Genea-Musings blog posts, printed off the CVGS Board meeting papers.
* Went to meet Olive and Janice at 11:30 at the library, then the Board meeting, home by 3 p.m.
* Wrote two more blog posts. Worked in the evening on the CVGS Newsletter. Edited last month's version in DOC format in OpenOffice, added about 60% of content. Checked Facebook.
Genealogy on Wednesday was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour on email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 3.5 hours on CVGS meeting, 3.0 hours on CVGS Newsletter.
Thursday, 6 January:
* Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1888 New York Marriage Record of Isaac Seaver and Alvina Lewis and Using Zamzar.com to Convert PDF Files to JPG Images. Added some posts to the Sunday Best of post since I couldn't do it last night. Got cleaned up.
* Worked in the database cleaning up master sources and source citations. Stated at the top and got down to the 1900 census. Turns out I have lots of citations to the 1900 census without any citation detail, and they have to be added one at a time. I got 133 items down to 80. Lots more to do here! Worked out a procedure to work around some of FTM 2011's quirks.
* Wrote Table of Contents - Winter 2010 Issue of FGS FORUM (used the PDF snipping tool!)
* Met Tami at 4 p.m. at Panera Bread for dinner, home by 5:15, watched TV until 6:30 p.m. while Linda did her email.
* Opened the CVGS Newsletter DOC file and it's all messed up... didn't look like that last night! Damn OpenOffice... decided to make a new master in OpenOffice format, and copied the text from the DOC file into the ODP file one page at a time. Still have no clue on how to do a header...worked around it. Added more content and am 85% done. Hope nobody adds much on Friday!
* Checked Facebook, wrote this post.
Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 4.0 hours working in the database, and 3.0 hours on the CVGS Newsletter.
