My genealogy day - 18 October 2011

It was a stay-at-home genealogy day, and I got some things accomplished.  Not everything I wanted to, but better than expected.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Anna (Leland) Woelffer (1859-1892) in Deerfield, Wisconsin.

*  worked in FTM 2012 some more trying to sort out the GEDCOM issues.  Wrote Family Tree Maker 2012 - Post 8: Receiving and Installing a GEDCOM File.

*  Had lunch, then got my four Beginning Computer Genealogy presentations and handouts edited for the OASIS class that starts next Monday.  Answered some email.

*  Wrote Is Family History Knowledge Declining? and then Ancestry has Added Many Vital Records Collections.

*  Worked some more in FTM 2012 - still no solution - and then went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, read the paper and watch a little TV.

*  Online at 6 p.m. to read, then add content and sources to the RootsMagic database using the Whitney article from a book copied at ACPL.  Checked Facebook and Google Plus.

*  Added to the Best Of post, then worked on reorganizing the computer files.  Got quite a few files and document images into the new file folder system.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 12.0 hours.
