My genealogy day - 25 October 2011

Yikes, only 6 more days in October left.  I feel like I've done nothing good this month, and am further behind than when I started the month.  Probably due to the two stints of being with the grandkids.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Levi Holcomb (1763-1854) in Burnett, Wisconsin.

*  Started over with FTM 2012, made several books and wrote Exploring Family Tree Maker 2012 - Post 10: Making an Ancestral Family Book - Part 1.  Worked some in RootsMagic 4 also trying to do the same thing there - RM4 is much faster!

*  Had lunch, and wrote The Moment I Knew and set it for mid-afternoon.  Worked a bit more in FTM2012 and RM4.

*  Left at 2:15 for my doctor's appointment.  Waited over half an hour to be seen - unusual for this medical group.  Took all of 10 minutes to tell me to keep applying the creme...$40 co-pay, $84 cream pack.  Sh!t! Home by 3:30 p.m.

*  Read everything, then started work - finally! - on my FORUM article due two weeks ago.  Matt hasn't complained yet...

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and eat dinner.

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and added notes and sources to the database from the Eva Kempton book for two ancestral families. 

*  Checked Facebook, Twitter and google Plus, answered some email, and wrote this post. 

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
