My genealogy day - 18 September 2012

This was almost an all-genealogy day...better than yesterday.

*  Read email and blogs, researched and wrote Tuesday's Tip: Use Princeton Public Library Links to Find Digital Archival Records.

*  Answered some emails - found out that I missed an August deadline for my FORUM column - completely forgot about it!  Drat.  Scrambled to find a topic and hope to get it done by Friday.

*  Did online research in GenealogyBank for Jeanne, my CVGS colleague.  Found some articles in San Diego papers for her.  Corrected a Genea-Musings article, and wrote A probate puzzle, or someone actually reads my posts.

*  Created an Amanuensis Monday Page on Genea-Musings, and then modified the blog layout - let's see if anyone notices!!  Need to do a Tuesday's Tip and Treasure Chest Thursday list too.

*  Got into NEHGS site, renewed my membership, and downloaded last two NEGHRs.  Read them, then wrote Catching Up with the New England Historical And Genealogical Register (NEHGR).  

*  Added content and sources to the database for the Fairbank family.  Need to do more.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, read the paper, do the dishes, and then cut the front lawn and watered the plants.  Back in at 6:50 p.m. to have my ice cream, cool off, watch the Padres game , put out the bug attractors, and read my book.  Pads lost 3-2 to the Snakes.  Drat.

*  Online again at 9:10 p.m. to read, answer email, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
