My genealogy day - 23 March 2011

It's unbelievable that 23 days in March are gone by...where did the time go?  did i have fun?  Noted that I've lost out on now - the journalist in Maine captured it and started a blog.  I'm glad he didn't call it Randy's Musings! 

*  Read my email and blogs, then wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 145: The Lyle Carringer House in 1922.  Got cleaned up, answered some emails, and went off to Costco to look at toys and books and buy flowers for Linda.

*  Home by 11 a.m., put the flowers in water, and worked on Exploring WikiTree - Post 8: Searching for Common Ancestors.  Even asked to be on a Trusted List!  Had lunch.

*  Put an AUBLE Notebook together trying to use DearMYRTLE's guidelines.  Printed out lots of stuff, and filed it in order, but need to find the supporting documents now in the old notebooks.  There is stuff all over...that's why I'm reorganizing gradually! 

*  Reorganized my Ancestral Files on the computer too - made folders for Surnames, e.g. AUBLE Family, then added individual family file folders in those, and put the FGSs and narratives created for my Auble families in the right folders.  Need to go capture other reports, documents and photographs. 

*  Wrote the book review for Raking the Ashes and sent it off to Kathryn. 

*  Flush from those three accomplishments (hmmm, not sure about that!), I tacked the taxes!  Loaded TurboTax and entered all the data I have.  We actually get money back again, which is good - and no penalties like several years ago.

*  Went in at 5:45 p.m. to read the paper and eat dinner, then put the trash out. 

*  Back online at 7 p.m., read everything, wrote The Exploring WikiTree Compendium and edited several other posts.

*  Edited my handout for the File Organization again, then added several charts to the CVGS Genealogy 101 Class 1 presentation.  Still need to do more proofing of the processes.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and wrote this post.
