The blogging fool's genealogy day - 16 May 2011

Did you ever have one of those days where there was so much great genealogy information that you spent most of the day writing about it?  Today was the day for me.  Six blog posts and updates to two others.

*  Read email and blogs, and scrolled through Jordan's presentations, then wrote NGS 2011 Presentations Online.    Read Mel's blog posts, and wrote Excellent Genealogy Conference Suggestions from Mel Wolfgang.  Excellent work.

*  Got cleaned up, and wrote Amanuensis Monday - the Will of John Loker (1608-1653) of Sudbury MA and set it for early afternoon.   Ate lunch.

*  Collected some screen shots and wrote The New FamilySearch Family Tree - Post 2: Searching for Ancestors and set it for mid-afternoon.

*  Worked in the database for awhile - adding information from the "to-be-entered" stack, and adding source citations when I found them in the Notes. 

*  Wrote some emails, then wrote California Vital Records Alert.  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to rest, read the paper, and eat dinner.  Back at 6 p.m. to read, check Facebook, then did some research for Nat, and emailed her with suggestions.

*  Went in at 6:45 p.m. to watch the Padres game.  Watered the front plants and filled the bird feeder too.  Padres won 8-4 over the D-backs (now 18-23, won 3 in a row, outta the cellar.  They're finally hitting).

*  Finished my Tom Clancy book, and then read everything, and added to the Best Of post and the NGS Compendium post.  Wrote this post. 

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 1.5 hours reading blogs, 0.5 hour watching presentations, 3.0 hours doing online research and feeding the database, and 4.5 hours writing blog posts.
