My genealogy day - 5 February 2013

It was another stay-at-home genealogy day - cool and cloudy today, high was only 58F here.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - Look for Recent Obituaries in Google, Tributes and Legacy and then worked on and posted Finding Plat Maps for the James Vaux Land Holdings.

*  Worked on and finished the two CVGS surveys, made them PDFs and sent them to the CVGS Board members.  

*  Watched Crista's latest livestream on being a professional researcher using Ancestry.  some good tips there.  

*  Answered some email, wrote 2013 Freeman Student Genealogy Grant Announced and then Making a Photo Tree in RootsMagic 6.  Noted that Program Review - "Creating Your Life's Story" posted on the CVGS blog.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, read the paper, eat dinner, and do the dishes.  

*  Back online at 7 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, then worked in the database adding content and sources.  Now down to the Chat surnames.  A long way to go!  Found an adoption that nobody else has found, I think!  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
