My genealogy day - 24 January 2013

I've finally figured out that I have a cold or a touch of the flu despite the flu shot taken 2 months ago.    My drainage and sniffles are noticeable now.  It was another stay-at-home day doing genealogy for me.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1850 U.S. Census Record for William Knapp Family and then Check Out the Census Dotmap - Can You Find Your House?

*  Tuned into Crista's Ancestry webinar on Facebook about reliable sources, didn't get much out of it.  Added sources and event data for about two inches of "to be filed" paper.  I had entered most of it before.  Lots more to do!  I need to do more of this.

*  Checked out the TreeConnect feature for sources in FS Family Tree.  That works pretty well!

*  Watched Marina Pierre-Louis webinar from last week about On-Site Research.  Pretty good advice.  Checked Facebook.  Answered some email.

*  Wrote Win a FREE Registration to RootsTech (21-23 March 2013).  I must have done something useful, but can't recall what!  Oh - I checked out LibreOffice on the laptop - it reads my OpenOffice presentation files just fine!  Wrote Legacy Family Tree Webinars for 2013 All Set.

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, eat dinner and wash the dishes.  Took the laptop in to read blogs while Linda was on the desktop.

*  Online at 6:45 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook and do more online searches for Catherine names without a surname.  Found quite a few of them in Ancestry Trees.  Then worked in looking for the Richman daughters in the English census records.  

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
