My Genealogy Days - 15 and 16 June 2015

Only 14 more days and 2015 is half over.  Time sure flies when you're having fun.  I didn't journal last night because we got home from the Padres game.

1)  Monday, 15 June 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post 272: 1785 Deed of Silvanus White to Jonathan White in Bristol County, Mass. posted.

*  Joined Mondays With Myrt, and talked about the Virtual Pedigree app.  Noted that New or Updated Record Collections at FamilySearch.org - June 6 to 12, 2015 posted.

*  Wrote two posts on the CVGS blog and wrote up the SDGS program.

*  Answered email, checked Ancestry Hints, had lunch, and must have done something useful until I wrote Ancestry.com Sends Me a Hint Notice, and Now a Problem! UPDATED: Fixed!

*   Laid down for 40 minutes but didn't nap.  Read blogs, then we left at 5 p.m. for the Padres game.  Ate at the Tin Fish and in Petco by 6:30 p.m.  Pads lost to Oakland 9-1.  A terrible game.  We are now 3-6 in person, very disappointing.  Pads 32-34.

*  Home by 10:45 p.m., read email and blogs, but didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was 8.0 hours.

2)  Tuesday, 16 June 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - Cemetery Record Collections on FamilySearch, then wrote Ancestry.com Fixes Yesterday's Problem.

*  Finally started on the Ten Best Free Websites presentation and got half of them done.  

*  Answered email, then went in to watch the Padres game.  Had lunch, read the paper, and Pads lost 6-5 to the A's.  so now 32-35 and the new manager is 0-1.  Frustrated still.

*  Came in and read blogs, then wrote Crista Cowan's Interview: "Career Spotlight: What I Do As a Genealogist."

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner, water the front yard, and was online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and work through over 200 Ancestry Hints.  Got the last 7 days done.  Added some content and sources, but 90% of them are not suitable.

*  Worked in RootsMagic adding persons to FamilySearch Family Tree in a random Seaver line.  

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
