My genealogy day - 20 March 2012

It was a fairly full genealogy day, although I got out for a bit, and got sucked into the online research whirlpool again for long stretches of time.  That's fun...

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - Massachusetts Vital Records on FamilySearch.org. Worked a bit on the FamilySearch databases trying to find some of my elusives.  

*  Went off at 10:15 a.m. to the pharmacy, Costco for two dozen roses, the bank for money and Rite-Aid for an anniversary card.  It's time for Mr. Romantic to show his colors...tomorrow.  Home by 11 a.m.

*  Worked some in the database, trying to find dates and places for persons without them.  Hopscotched around.  Worked straightening out some census sources, and added some probate sources to my Seaver families.  Checked on flights to Oslo also - most have too many stops or don't have convenient times.  Frustrating!

*  Wrote Mocavo Search Widget on Genea-Musings and did some searching with it.  Back to the online searching and database entry.  Wrote Ancestry.com Adds Original Massachusetts Vital Records and sniffed around a bit.

*  Answered several emails, including Gini's introduction post request.  Went in at 4:45 p.m. for dinner, then watched TV news until 5:30 p.m.

*  Online again to read, then create figures and reports to send off to Elizabeth.  More emails.

*  Back to the online world and feeding the database.  Went into the Ancestry Mass VRs again, and found several persons in my database without birth and marriage dates.  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.

I guess I could have done something more useful, like write blog posts for the weekend, or work on my presentations, but...
