My genealogy day - 11 June 2012

Whew, after the hustle and bustle of the SCGS Jamboree from Thursday through Sunday, the effort raised a notch.  This was a busy day.  I got quite a bit done, albeit not in the database.  That will have to wait.

Readers can find my daily Jamboree blog posts at

*  Read email and blogs, and hurriedly wrote Amanuensis Monday - the will of Joseph Collins (1643-1724) of Lynn, Mass.

*  Tuned in before 9:30 a.m. for the MyHeritage webinar and press conference, and was surprised to hear my name mentioned several times.  Swelled with pride, I wrote MyHeritage Announces Record Matching Feature.

*  Remembered that I had to finish up and publish the CVGS Newsletter, so I worked on that for almost two hours, got it finished, the master printed, the mail list updated and printed, and took off for the UPS Store at 2:30 p.m.  

*  Home by 3:15 p.m. to read, answer some email, then emailed the CVGS Newsletter to the membership, and finally put SCGS Genealogy Jamboree Pictures - Hollywood Gala together.  Checked in on Facebook and Twitter and Google Plus.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to read the paper, then take dinner to a friend's house, and eat dinner ourselves.  I watered the front plants after dinner, filled the bird feeder, and opened the mail while Linda worked on the computer.

*  Online at 7:15 p.m., I updated my FamilySearch talk for Tuesday, and reorganized my Dropbox folder for Talks.  

*  Wrote a Tuesday's Tip post but messed up and it posted early.  Oh well.  Wrote another post for Tuesday morning.  Then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
