My genealogy day - 14 December 2012

It was a stay-at-home day with sporadic  rain showers, and cold - it didn't get above 58F.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Follow-Up Friday - Interesting and Helpful Reader Comments. Researched for awhile, then wrote "Genealogies" Replaces "Trees" on FamilySearch Home Page.

*  Did some online shopping for Christmas.  Got boardwalk passes for the boys.

*  Found the missing England census records on for Rich and Richman, and captured the images, added the media, and crafted source citations for them.  Added them to the research logs. 

*  Worked with the free trial Charting Companion program for awhile - it's not as good as I hoped. Deleted plenty of Alt. Birth and Alt. death events from Vaux and related persons.  Made a report - 11 pages of alt. births!

*  Answered some emails.  Checked Facebook, then wrote the Surname Saturday post and the two Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories posts.

*  Worked in the AMT scraping Mass Town records and ignoring other hints.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m., then watched TV news until 6:30.

*  Online to read, then watched Mary Hill's webinar on Legacy.  Pretty good - I loved how she went from one record to another for one person...although she should have worked backwards IMHO.

*  Worked in MyHeritage record searches - did 20 SSDI entries and 11 FAG entries, adding content and sources.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.
