Saturday Night Genealogy Fun- Genealogy Activities

Every Saturday evening, I like to partake in Randy's (from Genea-Musings) Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!

Tonights Challenge: Your Genealogy Activities 




1) Answer these questions in my survey about genealogy resources and usage:

a) Which genealogy software programs for your computer do you use? (e.g., Family Tree Maker, Reunion, GRAMPS, etc)?

I just started using Roots Magic 6-- in the past I've used Ancestry.com's downloadable one you can buy and then I've used My Heritage but I didn't like that one.


b) Which online family trees have information submitted by you- in either a separate online tree?

~Ancestry.com
~WickiTree

c) For which subscription genealogy record providers (e.g. Ancestry) do you have a subscription?

I have a subscription for Ancestry.com but it was a subscription that I WON - a 6 month world membership.

d) Which FREE genealogy record providers do you use regularly?

~FamilySearch.org
~Findagrave.com
~Google
~Local Heritage Book Emsburen


e) How much time do you spend each week doing actual genealogy research online? Estimate an average number of hours per week.

Average per week- 21 hours 

f) How much time do you spend each week doing actual genealogy research in a repository? Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.

none- sadly

g) How much time do you spend each week adding information to your genealogy software program? Estimate an average number of hours per week over, say, a one month period.

Average per month- 15 hours

h) How much time do you spend each month at a genealogical society meeting, program or event? Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.

none- sadly- I've never been to one :( 

i) How much time do you spend each month on genealogy education? Estimate an average number of hours per month over, say, a one year period.

none

j) How much time do you spend each week reading, writing, and commenting on genealogy blogs, websites, and social media? Estimate an average number of hours per week over, say, a one month period. 

Average over one month- 48 hours


2) Answer the questions in a blog post of your own (and please drop a link as a comment in this post), in a comment to this post, or in a Google+ or Facebook post.

DONE :)

  1. I'm not familiar with WikiTree - I'll have to look that up. I hope you find both a repository & a society you can go to! They are big helps. What about a local Family History Center where you can view microfilms?
