My genealogy day - 26 May 2011

Some blogging and some newFamilySearching...that's about it.  A fun lunch too!

*  Read email and blogs before taking the car down for service.  Walked the mile home, back by 8:35 a.m.

*  Wrote Job Opportunity: WikiTree is looking for a Cousin Connector, and then wrote Some Interesting New Collections and set it for later.  Spent some time in nFS and RM4 adding people and data.

*  Joel from Goodrich called about lunch, so he picked me up at 11:15 a.m. and we celebrated George's retirement at Fuddruckers.  Hadn't seen many of the folks since 2006 - fun to check in with them.  George took me to the auto repair place and I was home by 1:15 p.m. 

*  Read everything, then added Rhode Island to the New England presentation - only Vermont to go.  Then a review for consistency and content, and I'll probably add more examples of available data.

*  Researched and wrote New FamilySearch Family Tree - Post 10: A Better Way to Access nFS using RootsMagic 4.  Bruce commented almost immediately with a better way and I updated the post.  Then updated the compendium.

*  Wrote Educational Events at NEHGS. Went in at 4:30 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, and took a nap.  Dinner at 6:15 p.m. and back online at 7 p.m.

*  Read everything, wrote CVGS Program Summary - "My Ancestors Came From England..." and checked Gmail for the Cafe blog.  Watched the Geni webinar on collaboration using

*  Added more persons to newFamilySearch and checked them on nFS - it's impossible to remember what you've done so far...I keep both RM4 and nFS open.  The changes happen quickly!  But navigation is not easy.

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

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hour in nFS, 2.0 hours working on presentation, and 0.5 hour watching the webinar.
