Genealogy Journal - 05/05/09

The Cinco de Mayo was an interesting genealogy and family history day. To wit:

After reading email, blogs and Twitter, I researched and posted Unindexed Databases at Ancestry.com Redux about the unindexed databases. I got cleaned up, grabbed my bookbag, and headed to the FHC - got there at 10:30, and spent two hours turning microfilm from the 1825 and 1835 NY state census records for Jefferson County, looking for Lamf*/Lamph*/Lanf*/Lamph* families. Found some - the same ones I found in 1820, 1830 and 1840. I was home by 1 p.m.

I read everything, wrote No-shows in the cemetery and then 100 Genealogy Resources to Discover Your Ancestry as a lead-in to the next post. I no sooner hit Post and Tami and the girls came in the door. They all went down for naps, so I worked on Top Genealogy Web Sites - from my readers but didn't finish it when Audrey woke up. I got her up and played with her for awhile, and Lolo got up and then Tami too. Linda and Tami went out to dinner at 5 p.m. and then the Dr. Laura show at 7:30 leaving me with my two little angels. We watched TV, played on the floor, had dinner, took baths and got them ready for bed. Audrey was in by 7 p.m. but was fussy until after 9 p.m. I managed to edit and submit the blog post. Lolo was up and down until 10 p.m. I watched the Padres game - beat Colorado 2-1 in 10 innings. Linda and Tami came home and I wrote this post after waiting for Linda to do her email routine.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at the FHC,
