My Geneaholic Monday - 24 February 2014

It was a very full and semi-productive day...

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - the Articles of Agreement on the Estate of John Woodcock (1606-1701) of Attleborough, Mass. posted. 

*  Was able to JOIN the Mondays With Myrt Hangout on Air, and there was a good 90 minute discussion about current events.  Managed to get a little air time but not much.  Will miss the next four of these.

*  Wrote Reminder: Attend the FREE Escondido Family History Fair on Saturday, 1 March and Reminder: OCCGS Genealogy BASH is Saturday, 1 March 2014 in Huntington Beach, California and set them for later.  Wrote Crafting a Source Citation for the U.S. Veterans Affairs Death File, 1850-2010 and set it for later afternoon.

*  Edited the two BASH presentations again, and practiced both of them.  Need more work on the second one, which is new.

*  Added sources and media for Massachusetts town records downloaded and renamed yesterday for several families - some were duplicates.  Listened to Drew Smith's RootsTech interviews - some good stuff there!  Checked in on Facebook.

*  Took a 20 minute walk up the hill, across and down...also wandered up the construction site a bit.  Came back and started on the Dill and Horton lines in AMT Hints, trying to extinguish leaves while finding and saving town/vital records to the computer.

*  Went in for dinner, watched TV news, read the paper and washed the dishes.  

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, answer some email, then worked more in the AMT extinguishing hints, saving to the computer, and renaming files.  Will put them in the database on Tuesday.

*  Worked in the database getting down to Floyd names while adding content and sources from Ancestry, AmericanAncestors, FamilySearch and Find A Grave.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, wrote this post and done.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
