Randy's Genealogy Day - 21 April 2010

A busy genealogy day - all day! Got the Thursday talk and handout finished, the Rencher interview completed and partially transcribed, the second class presentation finished and the third class presentation started. Even captured some non-population census images!

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, then planned questions for David. Wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 100: Lyle, Rex and Tom and then Databases (scheduled it later in morning). Got cleaned up.

* Came back and checked out FamilySearch sites and FHFair syllabus for info about NewFS - found quite a bit and reviewed it.

* Left at 11:10 a.m. for McDonalds for lunch and then to the library for Computer Group. Was home by 1:30 p.m. Brought projector home for Thursday talk.

* Read everything. Set up laptop to copy latest files. Prepped more for the Rencher telecon - tested audio recorder - works fine (but battery low!). Downloaded last two NEHGR numbers.

* Called David Rencher at 3 p.m. for 30-minute interview. Interesting subjects - will do a serial transcription because I think it's interesting.

* Wrote New FamilySearch Record Search Release coming and CVGS Seminar on Saturday, 24 April before starting transcription of interview. Got about 10 minutes transcribed before dinner.

* Went in at 6 p.m. to have dinner, watch TV, read the paper, and back online before 7 p.m.

* Edited A Conversation with David E. Rencher - Part 1 and some of Part 2, and posted Part 1.

* Edited handout for last time, printed 60 copies. Saved handout and presentation to flash drive . Edited Class 2 presentation more - added SSDI and homework. Started Class 3 presentation. Searched 1850-1880 Non-pop census records for families.

* Read everything, checked Facebook, wrote this post. Whew!
