My Genealogy Monday - 18 November 2013

Only five more weeks until Christmas!  Yikes!  Only two more weeks until Linda's birthday.  double yikes!  Christmas letter and cards too - the season gets busy.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post 195: Deed by John Phillips to Daniel Bixby in 1758 for Land in Shrewsbury, Mass. posted.  Checked in on the Mondays With Myrt HOA.

*  Left at 9:15 a.m. for my OASIS class, got there by 9:40 and was ready to go at 10.  Only 8 of the original 14 attended, so it was pretty easy going.  Left at 12:30 for home and was home by 1:05 and ate lunch.

*  Online at 1:20 p.m. to note that I Had Genealogy Fun at the WAGS Meeting on Saturday, 16 November 2013 posted, and wrote "Kicking Up the Past" Kickstarter Project - Deadline is 24 November.  Researched and wrote Transferring Media Files Between Software Programs - Post 1: Project Defined and RootsMagic GEDCOM Created.

*  Answered some email, then searched a bit on and for BMD records for my ancestors in vital record books or the town books.  Found a bunch, saved them, renamed them.

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

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, found more BMD data for ancestors, saved them, renamed them, and put them in the surname folders in Ancestor Files file folder.  Now I need to add them to the database.

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and worked a bit in Ancestry and Find A Grave finding content for several families.  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
