My genealogy day - 14 March 2011

Ah, the Ides of March are upon us!  Time for the nifty St. Patrick's day census-whacking post!

*  Read email and blogs, then posted Amanuensis Monday - a Seaver Merchant in Washington D.C.  Wrote Take the Genealogy Habits, Attitudes and Origins Survey.  Got cleaned up.

Wrote Exploring WikiTree- Post 3: Viewing a Person Page and set it for after noon.  Went looking for more articles on William Seaver and his children - found the son's obituary.  The family had money!

*  Ate lunch, then worked in RootsMagic 4 on sources.  Got through the Ns, Os and into the Ps.  Found some facts wrongly sourced, so corrected them.  Found some more Seaver data online and added it to the database.  I love it when data just appears without much work!

*  Added some of the recent obituaries to the Seaver database also.  Worked a bit in Mocavo again.  Worked right up to 5:30 p.m. but don't recall what I did, besides miss National Nap Day.  I really should keep a log of what I gather and add to the database.  Maybe Tuesday if I remember!

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30, then read the paper, watched TV, and washed the dishes.  Back online at 7 p.m.

*  Read everything, then wrote my Mocavo review and emailed it off.  Added to the Best Of post, and checked Facebook, and doodled around in the database a bit, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours working on Mocavo, 1.5 hours doing online research, and 2.5 hours working in the database on sources and adding data.
