My genealogy day - 9 April 2012

We leave for Oslo in exactly one month!  I'm down to one item on my to-do list - get airline seats!  No Padres game tonight, so I can have a genealogy night!

*  Read email and blogs, researched and wrote Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Thomas Greenman (1669-1728) of Kingstown, Rhode Island.  

*  Finished up the CVGS newsletter.  Printed it out, did the labels, and am ready to take it to the UPS Store this afternoon.

*  Noted that 1940 U.S. Census Lessons Learned - Read the Whole ED posted.  Worked on Before Doing FamilySearch Indexing, RTFM and set it fior early afternoon.

*  Finally got around to reserving a room in Oslo for two nights.  A choice of two hotels, neither wonderful price or amenity wise.  Chose the one with two twin beds as opposed to one double bed!  It's several kilometers from downtown Oslo.  Maybe we'll take a tour on our free day.

*  Left at 1:30 p.m. to go to the UPS Store to publish the CVGS Newsletter.  Sent off 26 in the mail, have 14 for Board to use for publicity and membership.  Stopped by the church office to sign a form.  

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to work in the database, using American Ancestors VR databases and Ancestry census records to find BMDs for people in my database.  This is fun work, and I get to add content and sources (110,651 events, 27,625 citations).  Only another 20 years or so and I'll have it done!

*  Sent CVGS Newsletter off to the CVGS members.  PosteTitanic Memorial Infographic from

*  Went in at 6 p.m. for dinner, then watched TV and read the paper for awhile.

*  Back online at 7 p.m. to read, then wrote post for Tuesday on Indexing and arbitration.  Did a batch of 1940 census for Glenn county CA tonight, being extra careful to double check my work.  

*  Checked in on Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
