My Genealogy Wednesday - 11 December 2013

13 more shopping days until Christmas.

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 286: The Voss, Norway Parish Church and then First Look at Legacy Family Tree Version 8.0 - Post 9: Gathering Media Files and set it for later in the morning.

*  Left at 10:45 a.m. for the library and the CVGS Holiday Luncheon.  Won a table decoration and received a crappy gift (decorated stocking with body lotions...and a few candies).  Oh well, I gave away a jar of M&Ms - first one picked!   Good food, good company, funny presentation by Gary.

*  Stopped by the post office to mail the 90 Christmas cards, then home by 2:45 p.m. to read, check out the MyHeritage Scandinavian records, and write First Look at MyHeritage Scandinavian Matches.  Checked Facebook.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, and eat dinner.  We took Nellie a casserole, and home by 7 p.m.

*  Looked for some of the Voss, Norway events in the DigitalArkivet and succeeded - using the dates and farm names, was able to find the birth, death and marriage records for several persons.  Saved them as a PDF, named them, and need to make images of them, then attach them and source them.  That was a challenge, and fun!

*  Worked in the database on Elizabeths with no birth date and no surname (had like 24 on the list), found some of them, and solved several maiden name problems - added content and sources when possible.  

*  Added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
