My genealogy day - 23 February 2011

Finally ventured out today to go to the CVGS Program meeting, and spent the rest of the day doing genealogy work.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 141: Lyle's Birthplace and More on "Software Programs, GEDCOM Files, and Source Citations."

*  Created and printed some Genealogy 101 flyers, gathered my stuff, ate lunch, and left at 11:30 a.m. for the library for the CVGS meeting.

*  Margaret Lewis spoke on military records at CVGS, and it was pretty good.  Stopped at the pharmacy afterwards.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read everything, thought of nothing to write about, so played with Google Images and Maps for awhile.  Checked Facebook and Twitter too, and answered some emails.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, read the paper, watch TV, put out the trash.

*  Back on the computer at 6 p.m. to read, then wrote Steadily Improving my Family Tree Database.  Worked on Source editing for awhile, finding where I actually found specific sources, looking on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Google and WorldCat.   

*  Added to the Best Of post, wrote CVGS Program Summary - Margaret Lewis on Military Records and then this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at CVGS meeting, 0.5 hour working online, and 1.5 hours working on database sources.
