My genealogy day - 17 March 2011

St. Patrick's Day today - I didn't wear green, forgot, actually until I was out to lunch.  Had green salad, though!  Not much of a genealogy day, just some blogging, a webinar and work on the CVGS 101 class.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Censuswhacking on St. Patrick's Day posted, and put Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension File: Compendium of Posts together.  Got cleaned up, then wrote William Seaver's Murder in 1821 - a Reward Offered.

*  Left at 10:50 a.m. for lunch at a local restaurant with my Rohr Engineering group.  Talked English genealogy with Allen, and vacations with Don.  Talked about Rohr people and our retired lives too.

*  Home by 12:45 p.m. to read, then wrote Mark Tucker's Vision on What Genealogy Software Should Be.  In to watch the SDSU/Northern Colorado NCAA first-round game.  Aztecs won 68-50, but it was close in the first half.

*  Back online at 3:45 p.m. to read, and at 4:15 got onto GoToMeeting for the Michael Hait webinar on Doing a Reasonably Exhaustive Search.  It was a quick hour.

*  In at 5:30 p.m. to have dinner, then back online at 6:30 p.m.  Read everything, modified info from Genea-Musings for SDGS Newsletter.  Worked on the CVGS Genealogy 101 course.  We're taking the four sessions which were too crammed and making them into two four-session  courses.  I can use much of the same material, just spread it out and add new material as required.  Got classes 1 and 2 pretty much done for Genealogy 101. 

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on webinar, 0.5 hour on SDGS articles, and 2.5 hours working on CVGS classes.
