My genealogy day - 7 April 2011

Finished several projects today, and had some interesting genealogy finds.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension File: Surgeon's Report in 1900.    Quickly worked on the Civil War Draft Registration database, then posted Isaac Seaver's Civil War Draft Registration Record. 

*  Got cleaned up, and came back to read and then to work on the FamilySearch presentation.  Had lunch, then went out at 12:30 to mow the back weeds.  Back in at 1:30 to read and get ready for telecon.

*  Spoke to folks about secret project... I would tell you but they might shoot me.  Started back on the FamilySearch presentation and forgot all about the Geneabloggers Radio show at 3 p.m.  Drat.  Almost finished with the FamilySearch work, though.  Need to make the handout now!  Whew.

*  Went in at 5:45 p.m. to have dinner, then did chores and watched TV news while reading the paper.

*  Back online at 7:15 p.m. to read, then started on CVGS Newsletter.  Got it 50% done - need content from contributors who always miss deadlines. 

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours on Ancestry databases and telecon, 4.0 hours on FamilySearch presentation and 2.0 hours on CVGS Newsletter.
