My genealogy days - 2 and 3 June 2011

Thursday - 2 June:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Inflaming Source Citation Passions.  Got cleaned up.

*  Finished up the syllabus for the New England presentation, edited the presentation slides again, and now am ready to do it.  Two days ahead of time... pretty typical!

*  Had lunch, researched and wrote New and Updated FamilySearch Historical Collections - May 2011.

*  Worked a bit in RootsMagic and newFamilySearch trying to figure out why I'm getting errors.  Should go check the nFS Forums, I guess.   

*  Went in at 3 p.m. to read the paper, take a nap and watch TV news.  We left at 4:45 p.m. for the trolley station.  Had dinner at the Tin Fish, and were in Petco Park by 6:15.  Padres lost 7-4 to Astros.

*  Home by 11 p.m. to read email, then to bed.

Friday - 3 June:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Navigating - Post 3: Old Search, Basic Form.

*  Made one more pass at the syllabus - added more detail and moved things around.  Printed off a black and white for the copy shop.  Edited the presentation again, too.  Copied all files to flash drive.

*  Left at 11 a.m. for Costco for lunch, browsed the toys and books, then picked up George at noon for our walk on the bayfront.  Last one for awhile - he's off to Greece in a week.  Stopped at library for book sale, then to UPS Store to copy the syllabus.

*  Home at 1:30 p.m. to read, then researched and wrote Trying out the TreeSeek Charts.  Checked Facebook, fired up the laptop, transferred the presentation material to the laptop and tested it out.

*  Went in at 4 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, take a nap, and eat dinner.  Watered front plants.  Gathered New England books for workshop on Saturday.

*  Tuned into GeneaBloggers Radio at 7 p.m. and chatted away until 8:30 p.m.  Went in and watched end of Padres game - won 3-1 over Astros (now 25-33, 10-21 at home). 

*  Online to read, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.  Done!!
