My genealogy day - 14 February 2011

Genealogy and Valentine's Day - what a combination! 

*  Read my email and blogs, then wrote Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Joseph Allen (1667-1735) of Dartmouth, MA.  Got cleaned up, and wrote Is there a New GEDCOM Standard in our future? and set it for later in the morning.

*  Packed up my stuff, and off to the OASIS class at 9:10.  got there at 9:30, was set up and ready for my students at 10.  The class ran overtime a bit due to instructor enthusiasm.  They didn't mind!

*  Home at 1 p.m., had lunch, worked on geocoding my RootsMagic database and resolving place name errors (yeah, I still have some after the big project in December).  Have 600 out of 4000 not geocoded now due to errors or unlisted places (many in Norway). 

*  Wrote FamilyTech site at and then we went to dinner at the Butcher Shop for Valentine's Day.  Even had an adult beverage...and a nice filet.  We were home by 5:30 and exchanged gifts.  I got See's candy and walking shoes, she got flowers and oldies CDs for the car.  Watched TV and read the paper.

*  Worked down my email list a bit - got about 10 emails out before stopping and adding to the Best Of list, then checked Facebook and Twitter, and wrote this post. 

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 2.0 hours doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at my OASIS class, 1.5 hours working in the database, and 0.5 hour on Facebook/Twitter.
