My genealogy days - 11 and 12 March 2012

We're only two months away from our Legacy cruise now.

1)  Sunday, 11 March:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best Of post.  Went off to church at 9:30.

*  Home by 11:30 a.m. to read, add more to Best of the Genea-Blogs - 4 to 10 March 2012, and then had lunch.

*  Added the finishing touches to the CVGS Newsletter, and printed it out ready to print off on Monday.  Edited the OASIS handout and printed off the corrections.  Reviewed the presentation and practiced a bit on the Learn Web Skills site.

*  Got into the database and found more persons with no info, so wandered through WorldConnect, Google and AMTs to find info on them.  Probably added content for 50 persons.

*  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m., and read the paper and watched TV news.

*  Online again at 6:30 p.m. to read, start the new Best Of post, check Facebook, write two blog posts for Monday, do a batch on FS Indexing, and didn't write a post for here.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.

2)  Monday, 12 March:

*  Read email and blogs, then packed up and headed off to OASIS class at 9:15 a.m.  Noted that 

Amanuensis Monday - Administration Papers for Alpheus B. Smith Estate posted.

*  Got to OASIS at 9:40, got set up, and class started at 10:15 with all 10 eager students.  Showed them how to input data to RootsMagic, how to use Learn Web Skills site, talked about online data by topic, commercial database sites, and some search tips for census records.  Two hours non-stop.  

*  Stopped at McDonalds for lunch on the way home, stopped at the library for awhile to see the CVGS team, and then to the UPS Store to publish and mail the CVGS Newsletter.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, note that Ten Reasons Why I Use a Genealogy Software Program posted.  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to read the paper, take a nap, and watch TV news.  We ate dinner, then watched more TV news.

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m. to read, email the CVGS newsletter to the members, check Facebook, did Seaver in the SSDI with birth years of 1905 and 1906 (only about 10 of 51 in my database), did a batch of 1871 UK Census for Wales (the place names are tough...), updated the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
