Not much genealogy on the 4th, but a lot on the 5th.
On Sunday, read email and blogs before going to church. Noted that Eleven Score and Fourteen Years Ago... and My Revolutionary Ancestors posted as scheduled.
* Home from church at 11:45 a.m., wrote Best of the Genea-Blogs - 27 June - 3 July 2010 and went in to watch the Padres game, read the paper and take my nap.
* Back online before 4 p.m, noted the Parade article and wrote Ancestry.com Offering 15% Savings on NEW Subscriptions and tweeted it.
* Packed up at 4:40 p.m. and went off to church for the picnic and fireworks show at 8:45 p.m. Had fun, ate too many desserts. Home by 9:30 p.m.
* Read everything but didn't post anything.
Genealogy on Sunday was 3.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, and 2.0 hours writing blog posts.
On Monday, read email, blogs and Twitter, then transcribed and posted Amanuensis Monday - Peter Putman's Rev War Pension Affidavit.
* Decided to work in the family tree database starting around 10 a.m. Got the G's done, and added birth/death for many English baptism/burials. Checked out online resources for several families, and transcribed several articles form online published books. I think I have copies of the pages, but they are hiding in my bookcases.
* Realized at 3 p.m. that I needed to write a blog post, so wrote Will I Ever Finish My Family Tree? Silly question, really - the answer is NO. Back to the database for more fixing and finding.
* Went in at 5 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV and eat dinner. Filled the bird feeder, cleaned up some things, did the dishes, and looked up and Linda was doing her email. Drat - she went until 7:45 p.m. and I had to watch ESPN and MLB for an hour.
* Read everything, answered some emails, and worked on Ancestry.com presentation for next week - got syllabus matched to presentation, checked many links on both, etc. Wrote this post.
Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours working on presentation, and 6.0 hours working in family tree database and researching families online.
