My Genealogy Days - 23-24 November 2014

1)  23 November:

*  This was not a big genealogy day - read email and blogs, then finished the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 16 to 22 November 2014 post and wrote CVGS Program on 26 November is "Heirloom Discovery Day" with Georgie Stillman and set it for late afternoon.

*  We went to church at 9:30 a.m., home by 11:30 a.m. and I watched football until the Chargers won 27-24 over the Rams.  

*  We left for dinner at Black Angus at 4:45 p.m. and home at 6:30 p.m.  Read, then wrote the amanuensis Monday posts for this week and next.

*  Mucked around in Ancestry a bit, answered email, checked Facebook, but went in at 10 p.m. and read my Sandford book.  Genealogy this day was 4.0 hours.

2)  Monday, 24 November 2014

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post 245: 1873 Deed of Land in Taylor County, Iowa from Devier J. and Abbie A. Smith to C.S. Meeks posted.

*  Joined the Mondays With Myrt panel and we went until 10:45 a.m.  Read email and blogs, then wrote New or Updated FamilySearch Record Collections - November 16-22, 2014.

*  Worked in the 1930 US census on Ancestry - resolved 36 more, so down to 216 left.  Added some content and many source citations.  Checked Facebook, answered email, and added to the Best Of post.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, read the paper and eat dinner.  Watched the Ferguson briefing and the riots.  Online at 7:15 p.m. to read, and worked in Ancestry for awhile trying to find California BMD data for the Smith family.  Had some success!
