My genealogy day - 28 March 2012

Only five more days now...until the 1940 census is released and all the American genealogists try to access a web site and can't get on until the wee hours of the next morning!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 198: Richmond Sisters and Cousins.  Floundered around for awhile checking new databases, Ancestry City Directories, FamilySearch collections, FamilySearch Research Courses, etc., before posting Journals at the NEHGS American Ancestors site.

*  Packed up my stuff, and off to McDonalds for lunch, then to the CV Library for the CVGS program.

*  Talked to Joel W before the talk, and he gave us 90 minutes of great info about the 1940 census, including some insider information (sworn not to tell).  

*  After going to the bank, home by 2:50 p.m. to read, then write The New "Who Was There" Report in RootsMagic 5.  

*  Worked in the database for awhile, finding records on American Ancestors for BMDs of persons in my database, and sourcing them.  

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to eat dinner, watch TV news, and take out the trash.  Linda and Tami came home at 6:30, and I went back to the computer (think I'll name it Genie!).

*  Answered some email, tried to do some FamilySearch Indexing but it wouldn't let me download a batch, so I went back to working in the database.  Found lots of good records on FamilySearch for Vermont families, so added data and sources for folks in my database.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and went back to the database until 10 p.m. when I wrote this post.  

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
