My genealogy days - 21 and 22 April 2012

1)  Saturday, 21 April 2012

*  Read email and blogs, then off to breakfast at Jimmy's for the men's Bible study.  Studied Mormonism.  Good breakfast - I love bacon and eggs, with an English muffin.

*  Home by 9:30 a.m. to post Surname Saturday - HEALEY (England > Massachusetts > New Hampshire).

*  Wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Do a Wordle Cloud and set it for later.  blogger's scheduling still not working.

*  Worked in the database for awhile, finding census and VR records for persons in my database.  Down to the Ann collection...this may take awhile.  Also added lots of occupation and census facts for Seaver family members.

*  Did a batch of Indexing, and checked the last two batches.  Messed up all of the freaking line numbers ... did 1 to 40, they were 41 to 80.  The only mistakes on that batch - got 92% to bring my average down to 97%.

*  Worked some more in the database.

*  We left at 3:30 p.m. for the Padres game.  Got a new Padres hat.  Had Filippi's pizza at Petco for dinner.  Pads beat the Phils 5-1 in a good game (now 4-12, still in last place).

*  Home by 9 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and decided not to journal tonight.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours.

2)  Sunday, 22 April 2012:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best Of post, then off to church.

*  Home by 11:30, the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 15 to 21 April 2012 post went as scheduled, so Blogger is apparently fixed.

*  Made our hotel reservations for Jamboree - just need the train tickets now.  Still need to buy airline seat reservations.  Worked in the database for awhile.

*  Went in at 1 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and doze off.  Pads beat the Phils 6-1 (now 5-12, first 2-game streak of the season).

*  Online for awhile at 4 p.m. to work on my source citation talk.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, then watched 5th Grader.  Online at 7 p.m. to read, did an Indexing batch (got 99% on the last batch - 5 name errors that I think I did right).  Posted CVGS Program on 25 April - Dr. Steven Baird: Terms for Causes of Death.

*  Watched Finding Your Roots tonight with Downey and Gyllenhaal.  Good episode, lots of history, great family tree charts (where did they do them?), and the DNA too.

*  Started the next Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 5.0 hours.
