My genealogy day - 6 February 2012

Today was a really full genealogy day.  I got two major tasks finished, and several just started.

We returned from Salt Lake City on Sunday afternoon - got home at 4:45 p.m. just in time to see the end of the first half of the Super Bowl.  Unpacked everything, read the mail and papers, and watched the game.  Didn't do much in the way of genealogy.

Monday, 6 February:

*  Read my email and blogs, wrote Interesting RootsTech 2012 Blog Posts.  Started working on the CVGS Newsletter (it was about 50% done before we left) and had it finished by 12 noon.  Edited it, saved it, and had lunch.

*  Wrote One more chance to win an iPad from RootsMagic and then A plea: Put a link to your blog post in your blog post.   Exported Genea-Musings as a backup to the makeover.

*  Left at 2 p.m. for the UPS Store to publish the CVGS Newsletter.  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, then upload all of my pictures from the iPhone and copied all of my microfilm scans from the flash drive and organized them a bit.  Sorted the stuff in my laptop bag.  Emailed the CVGS list about the newsletter.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, then read the paper and watched TV news until 6:30 p.m.

*  Listened to Myrt's webinar about RootsTech Conference, and printed off a number of syllabus articles to share on Wednesday.

*  Decided to switch from "old Blogger" to "new Blogger."  It went smoothly.  Got my new template, changed font sizes, font colors, page widths, added labels, links, counter, email, and archives.  Shoulda done it a long time ago, I know!

*  Wrote A Genea-Musings Makeover and then added to the Best Of post and the RootsTech post, checked Facebook and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 12.5 hours.
