My genealogy days - 6-7 March 2011

I was too busy last night to post, so a double dose tonight.

On Sunday, 6 March:

*  Got the girls breakfast and dressed, checked my email and blogs.  Finalized the Best of the Genea-Blogs post, and set it for noon time.  Then we were off to church.

*  Home by 11:45 for lunch, naps, TV and play time with the girls.  Read email and blogs throughout the day and evening, but nothing done of consequence.  We went to dinner at In-n-Out, then TV and play, then baths and bedtime. 

*  Worked on last bits of the CVGS Newsletter, got it edited and printed, and printed the mailing labels.  Read but didn't post.  Wrote the Amanuensis Monday post.

Genealogy on Sunday was 4.0 hours at most - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours on CVGS newsletter, and 1.0 hour writing blog posts.

Monday was a fairly full genealogy day, once I got going.

*  Got the girls breakfast, got cleaned up, read email and blogs between home events, and noted that Amanuensis Monday - Will of Solomon Carpenter (1677-1850) of South Kingstown, RI posted.  Packed the girls suitcases and Linda drove them to Victorville in the rain.  I grabbed the flash drive and the laptop and took off for my OASIS class.

*  Got to OASIS by 9:40 a.m., figured out I left the handouts at home.  Drat.  worked around it, and emailed them later.  Only 6 students today, went through several of their research problems. 

*  Home from OASIS by 1 p.m.  Read everything, then wrote Why Do People Have Favorite Ancestors?   Gathered CVGS Newsletter masters, labels and publishing kit and off to UPS store to copy, label, stamp, and tape the CVGS newsletters.  Have it down to 30 minutes.

*  Home to read, and answered several emails.  Sent OASIS handout to students, and CVGS newsletter to webmaster. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper and eat dinner.  Back to the genea-cave at 6 p.m. to read, then do some searching for some of my students.  A little success, but no big answers. 

*  Read blogs, then added to next week's Best Of Post, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 1.5 hours doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours on OASIS class, 1.0 hour on CVGS newsletter, and 2.0 hours doing online research.
