My genealogy day - 25 February 2012

It was a stay-at-home, don't put your shoes on day...and I got quite a bit done.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - LNU (Rhode Island) posted.

*  signed up for FamilySearch Indexing, watched the video, did the easy test, and indexed some 1871 UK census records.  Wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - FamilySearch Indexing.  Indexed a bit more.

*  Listened to the MySociety Radio show with Whited, Kaufman and Oxley.  Good discussion.  Tepid chat board.  Indexed some more.

*  Worked on the Wiki presentation for next Saturday - got the slides done and think it's ready to go.  Will be a challenge to get it all in 60 minutes.  Sent email about carpool to Escondido FHFair on Saturday.

*  Did some more indexing.  Worked in the database a bit doing random corrections and additions.  Deleted a bunch of loose people and folks that I'm not related to.  Pruning the tree!

*  Went in at 6 p.m. for dinner, then watched TV news and SDSU basketball.

*  Back online at 7:45 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and then search for female Seaver spouses in the census records.  Found a bunch.  Lots more to find.  Checked Facebook, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
