My genealogy day - 21 April 2011

It was a pretty full genealogy day today - I did have to go to the lab in the morning and watched the Padres game in the evening.  Nice and quiet here in the Genealogy Cave with Linda up at Tami's.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Isaac Seaver's Civil War Pension File: Claim for Increase in Pension.  Got cleaned up, and went off to the SRS Lab at 9 a.m. for my blood test.  Home by 10 a.m.

*  Wrote Early Plymouth Colony Sketches in FREE Articles on, then checked to see if I had this information on my folks in the articles.  I had Great Migration sketches for most of them.

*  Worked on the Class 3 presentation and then the syllabus, and got them pretty much finished.  Did some research to support the Historical Homes Tour - saved census records for two of the homes.  Had lunch.

*  Got the 1910, 1920 and 1930 Census sources finished in RootsMagic, then did some sourcing from the to-do pile. 

*  Reviewed the FamilySearch presentation and updated some numbers.  Still need to prune it a bit.  Then worked on the Class 4 presentation and got all of the links right.  Answered some email and checked Facebook.  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV and eat dinner.

*  Back online at 6 p.m. to read, then research and write Have you checked the collections recently? You should!  Did more searching for Martha and Sarah Seaver on Footnote without success.

*  Went in at 7 p.m. to watch the Padres/Phillies game, read the paper, and read my book.  Pads lost 3-0 (now 8-11, still can't hit worth ...). 

*  Online at 10:15 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 2.0 hours working on database and sources, 1.0 hour working on CVGS stuff, and 1.5 hours working on presentations.
