My genealogy day - 15 June 2011

It was a fairly full genealogy day - blogging in the morning, the CVGS computer group meeting, more blogging in the afternoon, and searching in the evening.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 157: Kimball's Mill hands in 1888 and CGSSD Meeting on Saturday, 18 June Features Elyse Doerflinger.  Sorted out some of the photos on the extra bed - trying to isolate the ones to be scanned.  Got cleaned up.

*  Wrote SCGS Jamboree 2011 Pictures - Post 2 before going off to lunch at McDonald's and then to the library for CVGS Computer Group.

*  Help setup the projector at CVGS Computer Group, then played a bit on Ancestry during the meeting.  Showed Gary the Jambo-pix too, and the syllabus.  Checked out a book, stopped at the bank, and home at 2 p.m.

*  Worked some more in trying to find unindexed databases.  Found quite a few census records that are not indexed but are OCR searchable, and put them in an Evernote document.  Wrote Some Sparsely Indexed Census Databases on  Wrote Subscription Offer - for Father's Day!

*   Looked for Military records with unindexed and sparsely indexed records - added some to an Evernote list.  Answered some emails.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, then put out the trash, watched TV news, and washed the dishes.

*  Decided to check WorldConnect and Ancestry Member Trees for my 16 great-greats - what would I find if I was just starting my research?  Unfortunately, too many people have copied my stuff into databases for the project to be useful.  Was searching in Richmans in Hilperton on Ancestry Member Trees, and found some names, dates, places my database is lacking.  Added some detail data from other AMTs.  Then edited some Richman data in my database - had capital surnames, and some duplicate persons.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was about 11 hours.
