My genealogy day - 3 March 2011

Another stay-at-home day - at minimum, I save on gas expenses, and I usually have fun writing and researching.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension Papers: Widow's Pension Awarded.  Got cleaned up, and came back to write Using the Internet Archive Website: Books - Post 2 and set it for later in the morning.

*  Answered some email, wrote emails for the CVGS carpool and the workshop on Saturday, checked Facebook and Twitter, and captured the last month of FamilySearch new/updated databases.  Saw the notice of GenerationStation and registered, then worked in it for awhile, adding two profiles. 

*  Had lunch, then wrote GenerationStation is Open.  I like it, and will work in it more.  Wrote New or Updated FamilySearch Historical Collections - March  and set it for later in the afternoon.

*  Checked out another new website for awhile, then worked in the database - got through the M sources finally.  Had to revise all of the Michigan Death Index citations - they were in one master source and there are three different collections on three different websites. 

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and drink my dinner, such as it was (Apple Juice and Mag citrate!). 

*  Back online at 7 p.m. to read, then work on the CVGS Newsletter, add to the Best Of post, write a post for Friday morning, and write this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 1.5 hours working online on web sites, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour working in the database, and 2.5 hours working on the CVGS Newsletter.
