My genealogy day - 13 March 2011

It turned into a fun and interesting genealogy day.  I played Random Genealogy Games today!

*  Read email and blogs, finished off the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 6 to 12 March 2011 post and set it for noon time.

*  Got cleaned up, went off to church at 9:30 a.m., talked genealogy afterwards with John C.  He has an Ancestry tree, I think.

*  Home at 11:30 a.m. to read, then read my Ancestry Message Center - I hadn't checked it for months, and they don't seem to send an email any more that you have mail!  Several interesting ones that I can help with, so answered them via email.  One was intriguing - a murder of a William Seaver.  Found articles on GenealogyBank that defined it, another talked about the reward offered by the President, and then an article where someone admitted to the murder.  Added article transcriptions to my database.  Jumped around a little in GenealogyBank and found more articles too.  Sunday afternoon genealogy fun!  Beats balancing the checkbook and doing the taxes!

*  Went in at 3 p.m. to watch the NCAA basketball brackets - SDSU got a #2 in the West Regional with Duke, Connecticut, Texas, and 12 others.  We'll see how good they really are.  Read the paper, had a nap, and we ate dinner at 5:30 p.m.

*  Back online at 6 p.m. to do more random genealogy searching on and GenealogyBank.  Found many more interesting newspaper articles, and transcribed them - probably ten or more today total.  Wrote up the SDGS program review article and sent it off to the editor.

*  Stopped at 9 p.m. to start the next Best Of post, checked Facebook, then wrote this post. 

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on SDGS article, 1.0 hour working on Ancestry messages, and 3.0 hours doing online random searches.
