My genealogy day - 30 May 2012

It was a very full genealogy day...including a CVGS program.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 207: Shuffleboard and Small Town Papers now FREE to access and Creating an Ancestor List ("Ahnentafel") in RootsMagic 5, but set the latter two for later.

*  Packed up the laptop, flash drive, smart phone and tablet and headed off to McDonald's for lunch, the bank for money, and the library for the CVGS program meeting.

*  Got my laptop set up, then visited with people.  The meeting started at 12:15 p.m., I gave my newsletter and research report, and then took notes for the first two presentations on Genealogy in the Cloud.  Then it was my turn to show Mobile Genealogy with a 50 slide presentation in 20 minutes.  

*  Home by 2:45 p.m. to watch the walkoff homer by the Cubs (Pads lost 8-6, now 17-35).  

*  Online to read, check Facebook, and find and add more images to the database, especially for the Alpheus Smith family.  

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m., then put out the trash and read the paper.

*  Online again at 6:30 p.m. to read, then added content and sources to the database.  I'm into the At... names now.  Added content and sources from Find-A-Grave also - found a whole set of Seaver folks that I didn't have, so added them with sources.  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
