My genealogy day - 11 May 2011

I had the day pretty much to myself, since Linda went to Tami's for the day.  It was pretty much an all-genealogy day!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 152: the Carringer House in 1957.  Got cleaned up, then wrote SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 14 May - Connie Moretti Presents.

*  Printed off my Maps handout for the CVGS Research Group, and gathered my papers.  Did some online search for Nat's Ukraine and Kazakh lines.  Used Google Translate to get English equivalent of Russian names and places, then found them on Google Maps.  Left at 11 a.m. for McDonald's for lunch (treated myself...they didn't have choc chip cookies though, drat!).  Then to the bank, and then the library.

*  Chaired the CVGS Research Group from 12 to 2 p.m.  Gave 30 minute presentation on Maps, then others shared some of their maps and stories, then a general discussion about research, software, and more.   Stayed after to talk to Nat about her research.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read everything.  Added to the Best Of post, and checked out upcoming webinars.  Wrote Dear Randy: How should I transfer my FTM 2011 database to RootsMagic?  I must have done something else for awhile, but can't recall what it was!

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, eat dinner, wash the dishes and put out the trash. 

*  Back online at 6 p.m. to read, then watched Maureen Taylor webinar and RootsMagic/FamilySearch webinar.  Worked in RootsMagic to add more families to new FamilySearch Family Tree.  Gathered some screens, maybe I'll blog about it soon.  I wonder why nobody else blogs about it?

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