My genealogy day - 25 August 2012

Yikes, we're almost to the end of August 2012 - 66% done for the year.  I wonder what my goal status is?  I don't dare look.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Surname Saturday - NORMAN (England > Massachusetts).  Then wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Ancestor Name Roulette and set it for early afternoon.

*  Listened to Marian's radio talk show - interesting guy, sounds like an interesting book.  Don't want to miss next week's show - Martin Hollick will be on!

*  Worked in the database most of the afternoon.  Fixed some errors, added lots of content and sources for Mass. people in the 1800s.  Collected info on Blair Mertes's ancestry - found parents, grandparents, cousins, etc., and added them to the database.  

*  Went in at 3:15 p.m. to watch the end of the Little League World Series game.  Petaluma scored 10 runs in the 6th to tie Tennessee 15-15, then lost it in the 7th, 24-16.  A wild game.

*  Online at 4:15 to do more database work, and back to eat dinner at 5:15 p.m., read the paper, water the front plants, and watch the Padres game.  Pads won 6th straight, 9-3 over Dbacks.  

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, check Facebook, write Neil Armstrong - Rest in Peace, Son of Americaadd to the Best Of post, and work in the database doing random checks and adding content.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
