My genealogy day - 12 January 2012

It was a full stay-at-home genealogy day, and I made some progress on several fronts.

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Death Record of James A. Kemp.  

*   Exported Genea-Musings blog to save it as an XML file - 51 mb!  Took over one minute, which is why IE9 was timing out - it had a 10 second setting.  Did some bookmark managing in Google Chrome too.

*  Wrote My Family Finder Autosomal DNA Tests - Post 3 and answered some email.  

*  Worked on the handout and the presentation for the Wiki talk at the Family History Fair.  Need to do screen captures too, but got the handout in order.

*  Took some time to look for my Richman notebook and I didn't find it until after dinner - right on top of the printer where I put it so I wouldn't lose it.  Drat.  Went through the desktop paper stacks too, and found several items that I added to the database.

*  Wrote Rootstech 2012 Presentations - 11 a.m. Thursday, 2 February   and then went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m..  

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then worked in the database adding content and sources from three articles copied at ACPL.  Also worked trying to figure out some of the Richman relationships, and added some sources and deleted some extraneous facts. 

*  Checked Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, then added to the Best Of post, and changed the Genea-Musings template a bit.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
