My Genealogy Day - 16 March 2011

A fairly full genealogy day - the day after Mocavo... there was a pretty typical response - some liked it, some didn't, some found useful online things, others not so much. 

*  Read email and blogs, the wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 144: The Carringer Home in 1926.  Got cleaned up.

*  Wrote CGSSD Meeting on Saturday, 19 March, Features Barbara Renick and Exploring WikiTree - Post 5: Adding Photos and set it for early afternoon.

*  Had lunch and went off to the library at 11:30 a.m. for the CVGS Computer Group meeting.  I showed WikiTree and Mocavo, and Shirley went through several of the features of Google.  They were mostly new for the 12 in attendance.  I'm always amazed by how much my colleagues don't know about or know how to do.  Worked on a query for 30 minutes, then home.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, and then went into RootsMagic to work on sources.  Never got there - found more info on McKnew family in DC on FamilySearch and added data and sourced it as I went.   Checked my Ancestry mailbox and Sarah's latest comments were there.  Sorted out some of the William Seaver facts.  Also checked Maryland State Archives for Seaver and found nothing useful. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, then read the paper, took out the trash and watched TV news.  Back online at 7 p.m. to read, then worked on St. Patrick's Day post, read Shades, added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours on CVGS meeting and query, 2.5 hours doing online research and adding data to the database, and 0.5 hour reading Shades.
