My genealogy day - 8 January 2013

This was a stay-at-home and play genealogy day for me - I had great fun!

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that Genealogy Searching Then and Now - Part 2: Now (2013) posted.

*  Started in on the Brocke research with the USGenWeb site, then used the Earthpoint site and Google Earth to zero in on the Wiseman memorial.  Wrote Finding Family Information about the Brocke Family.

*  Worked on the Konig family records in my database - sorted out the papers and hopefully got the families right, and added sources.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, eat dinner and wash the dishes.  

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, check Facebook, then looked at Historic Map works maps of Cedar County, and checked Fold3 for Homestead records (nope!).

*  Went on to MyHeritage Record Matches and did some CA Births and Deaths, then several obits from NewspaperARCHIVE, and finally some Find A Grave entries (plus more collaterals within Find A Grave).  

*  Answered some email, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
