Genealogy Journal - 02/05/08

I had some genealogy fun today, but had to help my Linda a bit. She is still sick, and getting cranky (I don't blame her).

After reading my email and Bloglines, I found that the 41st Carnival of genealogy has been posted by Jasia. so I posted a note on Genea-Musings about it. Then I got ready to go off to the Family History Center. Linda needed some honey-dos done, so I didn't get off until 10:30. While I was there, I put the Oneida County NY will abstracts for Smith on my flash drive, and then ordered four more films - 3 with RI records and a volume of the Oneida County NY deeds that have both David Smith and Russell Smith entries.

On the way home, I stopped at Panera and Subway and picked up sandwiches for our lunches the next two days. I was home by 1 PM, got Linda set up, ate lunch myself, and worked a bit on finding my elusive Vaux/Woodward/Munger/Doctor cousins in the 1900-1930 census records, plus other resources (SSDI, WW1 Draft Reg, etc). I input what I found into my database. Then I searched for the Della Carringer letters I transcribed back in 1995 - I found all of them except the one I wanted - I can't recall if I transcribed it or not. Drat. It was getting late, so I wrote "Searching for Distant Living Cousins is Hard" on Genea-Musings.

Then it was time to go to dinner with our neighbors, the Saxes. We went to Daphne's, and I brought a meal home for Linda. I watched the election returns for awhile, but got depressed. I remembered that I have to get my flyer done for the CVGS 5 April seminar, so I put that together and printed off copies for the Board meeting on Wednesday.

Genealogy today totaled 8.0 hours - 1.0 hour reading email and Bloglines, 1.5 hours blogging, 1.0 hours at the FHC, 2.5 hours researching, and 2.0 hours doing CVGS work.
