Randy's Genealogy Day - 20 September 2010

Pretty much an all-genealogy day - except for the evening around dinner time. Got quite a bit done too.

* Read email and blogs, then posted Amanuensis Monday - Will of Samuel Hubbard (1687-1753) of Concord MA. Got cleaned up.

* Worked on and then posted Rachel Morley's Birth and Parents. Searched for FHLC microfilms to order for Chorley and Bolton-le-Moors, and printed them off.

* Had lunch, went off to library for Table Talk, back by 1:30 PM. Wrote SDGS Seminar on 9 October - National Archives and

* Worked on source citations - adding content to them, got maybe half of them done. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's far away...still many more to do.

* Went in at 5:30 p.m. to eat dinner, watch MNFootball game, read the paper. Came in at halftime.

* Worked on adding sources for several families - got out several big notebooks with my resource material. I have lots more to put in these books from my to-be-filed stack. Maybe tomorrow I can sort that out a bit. Did 6 groups tonight, still have lots more to do.

* Wondered where I hid the Leland/McKnew stuff - searched the end of the bookcase and found them - and found some interesting papers too - scanned one of them. Also found some Seaver family certificates that I had misplaced - set them aside for Scanfest! Then found the Leland/McKnew photos I knew that I had scanned and captured from Linda's brother, and hid them on my computer. Lastly, found my notebook of letters to and from Seaver family embers back in 1990s - some good memories there to use in the Journal.

* Checked Facebook, read everything, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours researching and writing blog posts, 0.5 hour at CVGS, 6.0 hours working in the database on sources, and 1.0 hour digging in the dusty bookcase.
