The day started off with some big news, I went to the FHC for the first time this year, Blogger changed their editor, wasted away the afternoon and then the Padres lost. Drat.
* Read email, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1841 English Census Record for John Richman Family and then checked the blogs. Uh oh, Ancestry.com did what? Read the press release and wrote Ancestry.com Acquisition of iArchives (including Footnote.com).
* Got cleaned up, gathered my stuff for Whittles in England, and off to the FHC before something else came up. Got there by 10:45 AM, worked in Ancestry Institution in 1841 and 1851 census records. Ancestry I is really slow there. Saved images to flash drive, ordered three microfilms of parish registers, and home by 12:45 PM. Had lunch.
* Read everything, downloaded my images and saved them, then wrote The elder Alexander Whittle in English Census Records.
* Started working on database, but got sidelined by finding parents of a loose Seaver guy - found them in plain sight, added more census records for several families and never got to working on sources.
* Went in at 4:45 to read the paper, took a nap, watched TV news, ate dinner, more TV news, and then 10 minutes to read email and blogs before Padres game. We lost 3-1 to Dodgers - now out of first place in NL West.
* Back to read everything, check Facebook and write this post. Blogger changed their editor and it does strange things. A copy and paste inserts several blank lines between lines for some reason. That's not going to work for Surname Saturday or amanuensis Monday where I often copy a hundred lines or more. Why screw with something that works? Drat!
Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours at the FHC, and 1.5 hours working in the database.
