My genealogy days - 12 and 13 April 2012

Two days of stay-at-home writing, researching and watching Padres games.  The first two items were good, the latter not so much.

1)  Thursday, 12 April:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - the Seaver 1940 Census Page and then researched and wrote Finding 1940 Census Images on  

*  Finally got around to balancing the checkbook, then answered some email.

*  Wrote 1940 U.S. Census Source Citation with Legacy Family Tree 7.5, then wrote Moe Howard (A Stooge) in the 1940 US Census and set it for later.
*  Decided to do something useful, so worked in the database, adding content and sources mostly for 19th century people in Massachusetts using census and vital records.  

*  Had dinner, came back to the computer and read, checked in on Facebook, and answered some email.

*  Went in at 7 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper and my book.  It ended badly, 3-1 to Arizona.  

*  Briefly online to read, add to the Best Of post, and went off to bed without journaling.

Genealogy this day was 9.5 hours.

2)  Friday, 13 April:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Follow-Up Friday - 1940 Census and More and Some Interesting 1940 U.S. Census Entries and set it for later.

*  Synced my FTM 2012 database with the Ancestry tree, then worked in the tablet using ancestry.  Interesting I didn't see shaky leaves.  I was able to search Ancestry using the browser and add data to my tree on the tablet.  This needs more work.

*  Wrote Creating a 1940 U.S. Census Source Citation in Family Tree Maker 2012 after lunch and then collected and  reviewed the SD maps on the City Planning site, and wrote San Diego Historical Maps and set it for later.  

*  Wrote two posts for the weekend, and added content to the database for three of my Rhode Island families.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30, and back to listen to Geneabloggers Radio at 6 p.m.  Good show with lots of call-ins about the 1940 census successes.  Listened to Outloud for a while too.

*  Went in at 7:45 p.m. to watch the Padres/Dodgers game.  We lost 9-8 with a bases loaded walk in the 9th inning.  Pads are now 2-6 on the season.

*  Online to add to the Best Of post, check Facebook and write this post.

Genealogy this day was 10.0 hours.
