My genealogy day - 21 February 2013

February is 3/4 in the bag...what will the last week bring?  Cold and showery here today...I stayed home and did genealogy fun stuff.  Finally unplugged my left ear too!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1880 U.S. Census Record for D J Smith Family and then researched and wrote Is This my Cousin in the FindMyPast Criminal and Prisoner Collection?

*  Worked on the four handouts for the OASIS course starting on 4 March.  Need to edit the presentations too soon, then copy the handouts next week.  Answered some email too.

*  Worked a bit in the new Family Tree Builder, imported a smaller database to test the features.

*  Wrote Speakers/Topics at Huntington Beach BASH on 2 March 2013.  

*  Watched the DearMYRTLE Hangout about Evidentia - looks like Ed has fixed it well.  Did a little homework research, but found nothing useful.

*  Researched and wrote Finding Pennsylvania Donation District Land Maps after realizing I couldn't recall where I found the Martin Carringer map.  Found it, and more, and then noticed the Cornelius Feather entry on the same map!

*  Went in to watch TV, read the paper, eat dinner, and do chores.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, check Facebook, and then worked in Ancestry, American Ancestors and Find A Grave adding content and sources to the database.  Through the Cla surnames.  Added 80 sources, got FAG down to 498 to confirm or reject.

*  Added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
