My genealogy day - 24 March 2011

Another stay-at-home day.  Started off really exciting, Linda couldn't find her keys.  Went out and hunted in the car, then the walkway, then the bedroom.  She went off with my keys.  I finally found them in the pants pocket that she took of when she got home yesterday.  Good detective work, eh?  Figured out her movements and followed them until I got the keys.  And her credit card.  glad she didn't put them in the washer!

*  Flush from that success, I read email and blogs, then posted Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension File: Isaac's Death Record.   Received the press release and posted and Partner Up.  Just saw the editing problem now!  Will go fix it.  Got cleaned up and brought in the trash cans.

*  Decided I'd better check out, so spent awhile answering questions, then captured screens and wrote Exploring Tpstry - Post 1: Getting Started.  Had lunch.

*  Worked on the Auble Surname notebook, then added sources from the Zion church in New Germantowen NJ to the database since it was in the Auble book.  Wrote Testing DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Paper Organization System.

*  Time for the SDSU/UConn basketball game - watched it, had dinner at halftime, and disappointed that my Aztecs lost 74-67 in a good game that demonstrated their one weakness - outside shooting and free-throw shooting.  Drat.  34-3 is a pretty good year, though.

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then work on the CVGS Genealogy 101 Class 1 presentation and handout.   Got that one pretty much done.  Now on to class 2.

*  Read blogs, added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour in Tpstry, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour working on sources in the database, 2.0 hours working on the Auble surname book, and 2.0 hours working on the CVGS presentation.
