Genealogy Funday - 11 March 2013

We had a great OASIS class on Beginning Computer Genealogy today, and I got the taxes done!  Yippee. Whew!

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that Amanuensis Monday - 1853 New York Deed of Heirs of James Vaux to William Bennett posted.

*  Packed up the laptop and the class handouts, and the flash drive, and off after 9 a.m. to Mission Valley for my OASIS class.  Got there at 9:30, got set up, and 12 of the 13 students showed up this week.  They sat in the same places...I appreciate that, since I don't know their names yet.  Demonstrated RootsMagic (navigation, then a new database, with sources), (an online genealogy practice site), (trees and searches), in addition to my presentation about software and online sites.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to read, note that What I Hope to Hear at RootsTech 2013 posted, and wrote Dear Randy - Two Names, Two Birth Records for One Child? Or Two?

*  Went in at 2:30 p.m. to watch TV, and take a nap.  Phone woke me at 3, so came back to the computer and worked on the taxes for 2.5 hours.  Hardest part is adding up and entering dividends and capital gain numbers (and entering individual transactions for capgains).  Done!  Money back!  Need to review again before I send it in.

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

*  Online at 7 p.m. to add to the Best Of post, answer email, check Facebook, watch a bit of Pat's HOA today, then settled in to add Find A Grave data to the database using Record Matches on MyHeritage.  Confirmed or rejected 48 matches (down to 279) and added about 80 source citations.  Reviewed CVGS Board minutes, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.
