My genealogy day - 11 October 2011

It was a strange day...but I got a lot done and I'm almost ready to go off to Santa Cruz on Thursday to see the grand-boys.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Anna and Torger Leland in Deerfield, Wisconsin.

*  Was answering email when the Internet connection went down at 9 a.m., and didn't come back until 11:30 a.m.  Laptop didn't work either.  Called Cox at 10 a.m. and the message said they were working on it.  Called cox again at 11:30 a.m. and the guy said things looked OK.  Sure enough, I was back online.

*  During the downtime, I sorted my paper piles again (to be entered, to be sourced, and to be filed) - maybe I can keep them straight now.  Started on the Lessons Learned pitch for the CVGS Research Group on Wednesday.  Got it pretty much done by the time the Internet came back.  Scanned some images for inclusion in the presentation.

*  Worked in FTM 2012 and wrote Exploring Family Tree Maker 2012 - Post 4: Census Source Citation Comparison for almost two hours. 

*  Added material to the Lessons Learned presentation, saved it as a PDF, copied it to the USB drive and then to the laptop.

*  Worked on the checkbook for over two hours - done and better organized. 

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch baseball, read the paper and eat dinner. 

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m. to read, added to the Best Of post, write two posts for the week ahead, and added some content to the RootsMagic database.  Checked Facebook and Google Plus, and answered some email.  Added to the Family History Mystery Tour Compendium post also.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
