My genealogy day - 8 March 2012

It was a stay-at-home day, and I got some things accomplished, not all of them genealogy!

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Della Carringer's Obituary.  

*  Saw Geoff's post about the Census Tools, so tried it in Legacy and wrote Legacy Family Tree 7.5 Adds Census Year Reports.  Watched the Legacy Webinar on the 1940 Census.

*  Decided that I'd better get a start on the income taxes using TurboTax.  Installed it, and worked my way through everything.  Biggest problem was the large number of capital gains entries I had to input.  Watched a bit of the Aztecs basketball game too.  Finished up around 4 p.m.  We owe big time this year.

*  Wrote CVGS Workshop on Saturday, 10 March - "Maximizing" and then worked for awhile adding content and sources to my Medfield families.  Almost done there!

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, then read the paper and watched TV.  Online again at 6:30 p.m. to read and answer email.

*  Got started on the CVGS Newsletter.  Got about 70% of content in, now to wait for board members to submit their deathless prose.  

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, did a batch on FamilySearch Indexing (Staffordshire in 1871, poor handwriting, interesting town names!).  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
