My Genealogy Day - 24 January 2011

It was a fairly full stay-at-home genealogy day - lots of blogging, not much else.

*  Read email and blogs and transcribed and posted Amanuensis Monday - a Jones letter from Tennessee in 1824 and then January 18th FamilySearch Bloginar is posted.

*  Got cleaned up, made a small test GEDCOM in FTM2011 and opened it in Wordpad to see the results.  Not pretty!  Had lunch, read the Life in Civil War America book for awhile - copied some pages.

*  Wrote Peeking at Family Tree Maker 2011 Source Citations in the GEDCOM File - Post 1 and missed the announcement for awhile.  Oh well, didn't bother to post it.

*  Balanced the checkbooks and entered last of 2010 info into Microsoft Money. 

*  Checked out new stuff in MyHeritage, and posted Upgrades Smart Matching.  Worked on and posted Book Review: Life in Civil War America, by Michael J. Varhola.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to water the front plants, watch TV news, read the paper, and we had Ron over for dinner.

*  Back online at 7:45 p.m. to read everything, work on the SDGS presentation, update the Best Of post, check Facebook, talk to Lori, and write this post. 

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour working in FTM2011 and GEDCOM, 0.5 hour in MyHeritage, 1.0 hour reading the Civil War book, 1.0 hour working on my SDGS presentation, and 4.0 hours writing blog posts.
