My Genealogy Saturday - 27 July 2013

This was a pretty good genealogy day - did something new, and made some progress on my database, plus the Padres won.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - CUTLER (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted.  Did some online work and found some Find A Grave entries - added content and sources.

*  I left at 9:10 a.m. for the SDGS Library on Kearny Mesa.  Got the projector and laptop set up with Miriam's help, and had 10 folks for the RootsMagic user's group.  I sat in for Chris who is in Nebraska.  The two hours went really fast!  Only two had seen RootsMagic interact with FamilySearch Family Tree.  Only one or two were using the To-Do List and the Research Log, and one the Correspondence List.  Talked to Miriam a bit afterwards.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to eat lunch, then note that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- a 100 Word Genealogy Challenge posted.  Decided to work in the files - moved some Mass. Town Records from "To be Filed" to Surname/Couple folders, and then sourced them.  Went through the Fuller Mayflower book (I copied pages at SDGS Library three weeks ago) and added content and sources to the database for my line. Did more online research and added content and sources to the database until 5 p.m.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, eat dinner, read NGSQ, and start my new Michael Palmer book.  Also worked on the iPhone a bit.  Pads won 12-3 over D-backs - a much better game than last night!  Now won 5 of 8 and are 47-58.  

*  Online after 8:30 p.m. to read, work in the database some more, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and write this post.

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
