Another exciting genealogy day - 25 April 2012

This was a very busy genealogy day - I even got some database work done in the evening.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 202: The Baseball Guys posted and wrote Dear Randy - Can You Describe Your Genealogy Workflow?

*  Printed off 30 copies of my handout, got the laptop and CVGS bag together, and off at 10:15 to my PEO talk on "Genealogy - Be An Ancestor Detective" in Old Town.

*  Got there early, got the laptop up and hooked up, and started at 11:10 a.m.  Finished at 11:45, answered questions , disconnected, and off at 12 noon for the CVGS meeting.

*  Got to the CV library at 12:25 p.m., and enjoyed the meeting and the speaker.  Stuck around for awhile to meet with colleagues on Thursday talk.

*  home by 2:45 p.m. to read, then connected to Ancestry phone call on Archives acquisition.  That was over at 4 p.m., so I wrote it up in Comments on Acquisition by

*  Went in to watch the Padres game, read the paper, take a nap, and eat dinner (we lost to Nats 7-2, now 5-14).

*  Back online at 6 p.m. for the Judy Russell webinar.  Two hours non-stop of excellent legal advice about copyright.  Judy answered questions for 45 minutes.

*  Read everything, wrote the Treasure Chest Thursday post and screwed up - it posted tonight instead of Thursday...oh well.  Worked in the database creating a "Cause of Death" Fact and added some to the database, plus added more census and occupation facts to the database with sources.

*  Added to the Best Of post, wrote this post and i'm done.  Now I realize I didn't index today.  Oh well!

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
