My genealogy day - 28 February 2011

It was another interesting genealogy day - had some fun too!

*  Linda up early to go to Dr. Phil show in Hollywood, cost me an hour's sleep.  Read email and blogs, got cleaned up, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Probate Record of Elijah Champlin (1730-1779) of South Kingstown, RI posted.

*  Gathered laptop case, handouts and flash drives and off to the OASIS class in Mission Valley.  Got there by 9:45, but computer lab door was locked, they had to call security to get a key.  Started class at 10:15 in the open space outside the OASIS rooms, then key came at 10:40 and I finished the presentation there.  Had good questions and some hands-on searching today. 

*  Home by 1 p.m. to read everything, eat lunch, noted that Dear Randy: Why the false geography in your database? posted, and tried to do source citations but sleepy.  Took a short nap, refreshed.

*  Had no clue what to post, so used An interesting record - has anyone used it? Answered some emails, used some email info to add data to the database, and did some online searching for records for several ancestral families.

*  Linda home at 4 p.m., we had dinner at 6 p.m., and read the paper and watched TV until 7.

*  Back at 7 p.m. to edit my master sources - I'm through the Ks now.  Getting there!  Wrote Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - March 2011 and two more blog posts for later this week.  Added to the Best Of post, checked out the FGS strategy papers, sent email to society Board about them, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on CVGS stuff, 2.5 hours on OASIS class, 1.5 hour in online research, and 1.5 hours working on sources in the database.
