My genealogy day - 8 February 2011

A stay-at-home day, and a day to prepare for tomorrow!

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tuesday's Tip - Use NUCMC to Find Manuscript Holdings and got cleaned up. 

*  worked with FTM 2011 making a story thing, then uploaded an Isaac tree to Ancestry.com to check out source citation mangling.  Wrote FTM 2011 Citations Uploaded to Ancestry.com.  Had lunch at home.

*  Worked in RootsMagic to edit the K, L, M and N free-form sources.  Still creating sample EE style sources for specific record types. 

*  Started the land records presentation for Wednesday, using my own examples of records and processes. 

*  Watched the RootsMagic webinar on sources, and then wrote RootsMagic Webinars - Archived and Future.  Answered some emails. Did more land records charts.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:45 p.m., and watched TV until 6:45 p.m., then back to the keyboard.

*  Did some census research for the mystery Lucy Seaver, and wrote about it in Which Mrs. Lucy Seaver is she?

*  Checked for the Chula Vista historic homes owners in the 1930 census - found one.  Then tried to identify everyone on the block in 1930 and 1920. 

*  Checked Facebook, chatted with Lori there, then added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.
