My genealogy day - 21 January 2012

It was a pretty typical Saturday - out early to a genealogy meeting, home to write and blog.  even took my wife out to dinner.

*  Read email and blogs in a hurry, noted that Surname Saturday - ALLEN (England > Massachusetts) posted.

*  Left at 8:15 a.m. for the CGSSD meeting in the rain.  got there in time, and joined the FTM User Group meeting with Ken moderating.  We investigated several things.  I downloaded the latest update too.

*  After the refreshment break, Denise got there and set up for her talk on Dropbox.  That went well with lots of audience interaction and questions.  I downloaded Dropbox to my laptop during the talk.

*  Headed for home at 12 noon, stopped at the pharmacy and got home and had lunch.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Do Some Random Research posted.

*  Added Dropbox to the Galaxy tablet also.  Made sure the laptop Dropbox sync had completed.  

*  Worked in the database for awhile adding Pike data from the Freeman book (obtained at ACPL).  

*  We left for dinner at Outback at 4:30 p.m., had to wait until 5:15 to get seated.  Decent dinner - blew my calories though, I'm too weak - can't resist french fries.  

*  Home at 6:30 to watch TV news and read the paper, then online at 7:15 to read, note that Rootstech 2012 Presentations - 1:45 p.m. Friday, 3 February posted.

*  Messed around with Web Search in FTM 2012, and found a death record for Amy White!  Added it and sourced it (FamilySearch).  Looked for more unseen matches for my folks, but none popped up.  Worked for about an hour in Find-a-Grave, got through about 140 of the Seavers now - up to Charles.  

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

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
