My genealogy day - 10 December 2012

The damn procrastination gene got me again...drat.

*  Read email and blogs, then transcribed and wrote Amanuensis Monday - Revolutionary War Pension File of Martin Carringer: Post 2 - Affidavit.

*  Watched Mondays with Myrt - my first time live.  Found the New York Land Records on FamilySearch, found and saved two Amos Underhill deeds and wrote Using New York Land Records, 1630-1975, on FamilySearch.

*  Worked in the database for awhile, getting the Research log and To-Do lists updated for Amos Underhill and Samuel Vaux.  

*  Left at 1 p.m. to take the 80 Christmas envelopes to the post office, then to two Costcos to check out the laptops again.  I saw an Acer with Windows 7 for $350 last week, but now they're gone.  There was a Dell with Windows 7 for $500...I may buy that for my Christmas present from Linda.  I shoulda got the Acer last week... Played with Windows 8 a bit too, but am totally confused by it.

*  Home at 2:30 p.m. to read, then wrote Dear Randy: What are Your 100 Favorite Genealogy Blogs?

*  Worked in the database some more, adding media and event tags to the media.  Did some file organizing and file name changing too.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m., read the paper, watched the football game, washed the dishes and helped Linda play her birthday DVD on the computer.

*  Online at 7:30 p.m. to read, make sources for the two land records, then did 20 SSDI entries and 20 Find A Grave entries off the MyHeritage list - still a lot of FAG to do!  I'm gradually burning the numbers down.  Adding a lot of sources and some content in the process.

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

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.

I think I'll not correct any spelling errors in a post someday - it might be interesting, and unreadable!
