My genealogy day - 25 May 2011

My genealogy day was bifurcated by the Padres game, but that's life.  It was nice to get out into the sun for awhile instead of the genealogy cave!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 154: The Carringer Family in 1932.

*  Got into nFS and checked out Isaac Seaver (1823-1901) and made screens, then wrote New FamilySearch Family Tree - Post 9: Combining Records in newFamilySearch and set it for later in the morning.  Got cleaned up, and made a sandwich for lunch.

*  Left at 10:45 a.m. for the library and the CVGS meeting.  Met Fred Spong, the speaker, and helped get him set up in the auditorium.  The program started at 11:30 a.m. and Fred was on his way back to Carlsbad by 12:45 p.m.  Stayed for the CVGS business meeting and snacks afterward.  Home by 1:45 p.m.

*  Read everything, thought of nothing to blog about, got the trash out for Thursday pickup, and we left at 2:20 for the trolley station and the Padres game.

*  Padres beat Cards 3-1 with two runs in the 8th.  A fast game.  Had a bratwurst for dinner, then the ice cream cone.  We were home by 6:45 p.m.

*  Played all evening - listened to the MySociety Radio show from last week with Paula Hinkel, and wrote Genealogy Shows on BlogTalkRadio Flourish simultaneously.  Watched Geoff Rasmussen's webinar on entering death certificate information into Legacy Family Tree.  Excellent work, lots of good ideas on sources and navigating in the program too.  Added to the Best Of post, answered some email, checked Facebook and Twitter, tested out, and wrote this post.  Those three hours were a lot of fun for me!

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours at CVGS meeting, and 1.0 hour on radio show, 1.0 hour on Legacy webinar, and 0.5 hour in TreeSeek.
