My genealogy day - 22 August 2011

Monday was a stay-at-home day for me - I need to buckle up and get my preparations for FGS and ACPL done.

*  Read email and blogs, and posted Amanuensis Monday - the Will of Josiah Wood (1629-1691) of Charlestown, Mass.

*  Found the Seaver and Carringer source files on the external drive on the 1998 computer files.  The 2004 computer doesn't have it.  Open Office can read the MSWorks spreadsheet too.  Worked on the Seaver file for several hours.

*  Wrote Comments on the 1940 U.S. Census RFQ and SOW.  I'm surprised that very few people comment on this post and others like it.  Are they not interested, or don't have commentary?  Strange.  Had lunch.

*  Finished off the Seaver source list, at least as far as getting it into 2004 order.  Still need to add the Dill data and the few additions I've made since 2004.  Wrote How do I catch up to 13 years of genealogy sloth? to describe the process and the goals for ACPL.

*  Checked Ancestry and FamilySearch new databases, checked Facebook and Google Plus, and downloaded Amy's article on 25 topics for genealogy society blogs and read it.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and have dinner.

*  Back online at 6 p.m. for the Noah Tutak interview on Geneabloggers Radio.  Played in and chatted on the board. 

*  Jumped into the Carringer source lists, got it edited, then added the new surnames from the Lewis and Martin ancestries.  Still need to go through the paper stacks to add content.

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

Genealogy today was 12.5 hours.
