My genealogy days - 20 and 21 November 2011

I was a bad boy last night - didn't write my journal here and rushed in to read my detective book.  Now I can't remember what I did!

1)  Sunday, 20 November 2011:

*  Read email and blogs, and finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 13 to 19 November 2011 post.

*  We left for church at 9:30 a.m., not raining yet.

*  Home by 11:30 a.m. to go to the Scanfest - scanned 41 images of Seaver probate records - now have to name them and stitch some together.

*  Came in at 1 p.m. to watch the Chargers/Bears game.  Forewent going to the wedding at church, Linda went.  Chargers lost 31-20 in a decent game, but mistakes in the end cost us.  Now 4-6 and no hope for a winning season, let alone playoffs.

*  Online at 4:30 to read, and print out the OASIS handout for Tuesday.  Transferred files to flash drive.

*  Went in at 5:30 to read the paper, eat dinner and watch the Eagles/Giants game for awhile.

*  Online again at 7 p.m. to read, then do another page of sourcing NH Marriages on 

*  Started a new Best Of post, checked Facebook.

Genealogy on Sunday was about 6.0 hours.

2)  Monday, 21 November 2011:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Amanuensis Monday - the Obituary of Lyman Dwight Smith (1807-1889), and then worked in FTM 2012 and wrote Exploring Family Tree Maker 2012 - Post 27: Doing a Web Search - Case 1 - Source Citations.

*  Gathered my three queries up and headed to the library.  Got one done, the second one I left a critical piece of paper at home.  Drat.  Stopped by the UPS Store to copy my two-page handout for OASIS on Tuesday.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to read, then write Breaking News: MyHeritage has Acquired FamilyLink and WorldVitalRecords and You Can Help Rescue Some Underwater Texas Cemeteries.

*  Got the OASIS Talk files on the laptop and shut it down.  Answered some email.   Wrote What's "Bad" About Genealogy Software?

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

*  Back online at 7 p.m. to read, then work on the NEHGS article.  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and google Plus and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
