My genealogy day - 25 October 2012

I tried something new and different today - not sure it went well.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1900 U.S. Census Record for Henry Carringer Family and then Trying Out the RootsSearch Chrome Extension - Part 2.

*  Reviewed my script and presentation for the MyHeritage webinar, and even practiced it.  Found all kinds of traps I didn't know about.  Drat, I hate to be unprepared.

*  Had lunch, then logged into the webinar at 12:30 p.m. and got educated on the process of handing off, etc.  Everything seemed fine.  Webinar started at 1 p.m., and my turn was about 1:20 p.m. or so.  Started off well, but got confused by the webinar Dashboard when I was full hid many of the links and buttons I wanted.  Had to reload the browser once when I went too fast shutting things down.  Fell into several traps, hope I didn't curse out loud.  Embarrassing, to me, at least.  

*  Wrote two posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe, then researched and wrote Chart and Report Print Options.

*  went in at 5 p.m. to watch the World Series, took a short nap, ate dinner, read the paper, washed the dishes and finished my Jack Higgins book.  Giants won 2-0 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

*  Online at 8:15 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, then tried to find info for several Sarahs without a surname in my database.  Didn't add much, but had a good time seeing all of the probable errors in other family trees.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
