It was a full genealogy day until dinner time and the Padres game. Got a headache just before dinner and suffered the rest of the night. Why? Too much eyestrain in database? Not enough sleep?
* Read email and blogs, and posted Amanuensis Monday - the will of Elizabeth (Prescott) Hildreth (1734-1812). Researched and wrote Ancestry.com improves Searching by Location and set it for later in the morning.
* Got cleaned up, came back to work in the database. Added some content from a book to the notes of several families. Added some sources too just by browsing through the database.
* Ate lunch, left at 11:45 AM for the library for CVGS Table Talk and to get more mystery books for watching the Padres games. Six at Table Talk, I read Paul Milner's book on English research - pretty good summary but a bit dated now, although basic concepts are good. The others debated coming programs and such...I was home by 1:30 PM.
* Read everything, and worked in the database for several hours. I got the Bs done...finally, all of those Bresees and Bucks! The Bucks were really messed up because I had a separate database for them. Researched and wrote Searching Collections on FamilySearch Beta and Record Search - they're different!
* Went in for dinner, too cool to eat outside, and back online at 6:30 PM for a bit. Searched for HA Knapp online - found 1910, 1900 and 1880 census, but not 1870 (yet). Then it was time for the Padres-Dodgers game. Pads won 10-5.
* Back online at 10:30 PM, read everything, wrote this post, don for the night!
