My genealogy day - 31 May 2012

It was another mostly genealogy day, and I think that I made some progress in the database and my Whittle presentation.  Good news - the Padres didn't lose again (um, off day).

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Jane (Whittle) McKnew's Death Certificate and researched and wrote Adding a Story to my Ancestry Member Tree.

*  Had to go get my blood pressure tested at Sharp, so off at 10:45 a.m. and home by 11:45 a.m.  The nurse called a name and I went, she did my tests, then figured out she had the wrong person.  It got straightened out, but stuff happens!

*  Read, then worked on the Whittle presentation for several hours - got through the Australia and California material, only the English left to add.  

*  Researched and wrote Creating Research Notes in RootsMagic 5 - Post 1 and posted it.

*  worked in the database adding content and sources until 5:15, when we had dinner.  Linda needed a ride to a take food to a friend, so home by 6:45 p.m.  Then she wanted to work on her tablet.  

*  Finally back online at 8 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and worked more in Find-a-Grave on Carringer and Seaver, then in 1930-1939 California death index to add content and sources.  

*  Checked in on Facebook.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.

Both sets of stats suffered by the two week vacation we took.
