My genealogy day - 10 March 2011

Ten days gone in March already?  Yikes.  I'd better start working on my FORUM article and my CGSSD presentation in five weeks.  Linda came home from Tami's today.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension Papers: Widow's Drop Report.  Got cleaned up.

*  Worked a bit in Mocavo, then sent several emails.  Worked a bit in Ancestry looking for W H Allen too - found him in 1880 and 1870 finally. 

*  Decided to upload a GEDCOM to WikiTree, so created a 10-generation ancestral file and did it.  Captured screens, which turned into WikiTree - Post 1: Getting Started.  Had lunch.

*  Worked on some financial matters, then tried to upgrade sources in RootsMagic.  Linda came home tired, and I got wash going.  Got stuck trying to find where I found BMD notices in the New York Times newspaper - I can't find them now!  I think a correspondent sent me a list once, but I can't find it in my archives. 

*  Went in at 4:30 p.m. to watch TV and read the paper, then took Linda to Oggi's for pizza and watched the first half of the SDSU game there.  Came home quickly, and watched second half.  Aztecs won 64-52 and it wasn't that close.

*  Back online at 8 p.m. to read, then checked Facebook, add to the weekly Best Of post, write CVGS Research Group Summary - 9 March 2011 and then write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 1.5 hours doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour in Mocavo, 0.5 hour doing online research, 2.0 hours working on sources, 1.0 hour working in WikiTree, and 2.5 hours writing blog posts.
