My genealogy day - 22 August 2012

It feels strange not having a society program, or a talk, to give for several weeks.  I've been on a treadmill of sorts, and getting off means that I can do more research - another treadmill!

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 219: Aunt Gerry in 1950, and then iPhone/iPad App - Filters Work!

*  Worked on a query from email for awhile - solved the problem, added the info to the database, and sent the report to my correspondent.  That lead to doing some research in the Vermont VR cards on FamilySearch.

*  Left at 1 p.m. for the pharmacy, then the library, and home by 1:45 p.m.  Read, then wrote Mining the Vermont Vital Records, 1760-1954.  Did some more research and added data and sources to the database from the Vermont cards.

*  Checked Facebook, Twitter and Google+, then went in at 4 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, take a nap, put out the trash, water the front plants, and have dinner.  Pads beat the Pirates 4-2 for 4th win in a row.

*  Online at 6 PM to watch the APG webinar on Marketing for Pros...nothing I didn't already know, pretty much a waste of time for me.  Did other things...

*  Created several pages - one for Links and the other for my talks.  Still more to do!

*  Did more data entry and source citation from the Vermont BMD cards - got through the first 80 out of 519.

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

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
