Randy's Genealogy Day - 7 October 2010

Almost a full genealogy day, save for watching a bit of baseball and mowing the front lawn.  Did not advance the research ball at all, and probably won't until next week!

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Frederick W. Seaver's 1911 Birth Record. 

*  Finally read Shades Magazine,  and posted "Memento Mori" Issue of Shades, the Magazine about it.  How do they do this every month?

*  Worked on Current Red Star Collections on FamilySearch Record Search and set it for early afternoon.  Surprised that there's been nothing new for three weeks - they'll probably put a bunch of databases online tonight!

*  Had lunch at home, then worked on Class 2 of the OASIS series.  Moved one segment from Class 3 to Class 2 - the LearnWebSkills tutorial so they can practice on SSDI, WorldConnect and FHLC.  Got presentation and handout to match.  The time flew by!

*  Wrote CVGS Workshop on Saturday - 9 October 2010  on Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog.  Converted some TIF picture files to JPG for posting.  Read everything, went in at 5 p.m. to watch baseball game, eat dinner and then mowed the front lawn.

*  Watched first two innings of Giants/Braves game, then worked on the CVGS Newsletter.  Got everything submitted in, but may not have enough room for what is still coming.  Late submissions get short shrift, I always say!

*  Watched San Francisco 1906 post-earthquake video - amazing stuff.  Then checked Facebook and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blog posts, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour reading Shades, 2.5 hours working on OASIS class material, 0.5 hour working on photos, and 2.5 hours working on CVGS newsletter.
