My genealogy day - 22 February 2011

I spent George's birthday at home working on my database almost all day!

*  Read email and blogs, then posted Tuesday's Tip - Use the WorldCat Catalog to find genealogy books.  Tried to think of something else to blog about, but worked in my database instead.  Added more source citations for several families and moved paper from the "to-do" pile to the "to-be-filed" pile - it's pretty big now!  Then checked my White, Oatley and Wade probate records and hope to order one at the FHL next time I'm there.  Where did the time go?

*  Had lunch, worked in FTM @011 for awhile making Smart Stories and uploading file to Ancestry, then wrote Dear Randy: I Want Better FTM/Ancestry Synchronization.  Yep, me too! 

*  Got started on the CDNC newspaper site and couldn't stop... tried to add data to the database as I went along.  Where did the time go?  It flies when I'm having fun!

*  Went in at 5:30 to watch TV, read the paper and have dinner.  Back online at 7 p.m. to work on master sources - and added some data I found to the database.  Then added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, Twitter and Google maps for Christchurch, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 1.0 hour in software, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hour working on source citations, 1.0 hour checking probate records, and 2.0 hours doing online research, and 1.0 hour working in the database.
