Randy's Genealogy Day - 8 June 2010

Only 3 more days to Jamboree! This was a stay at home day, and I got a lot done in my database.

* Read email, blogs and twitter, and wrote Getting Ready for SCGS Jamboree and then Book Review: Wanted! U.S. Criminal Records by Ron Arons and set it for noon time.

* Got cleaned up, and worked on the OASIS Class 2 presentation and syllabus. Added some content, especially new websites with significant content. I think it's ready to print.

* Researched and wrote Finding Massachusetts Death Records on FamilySearch Record Search and set it for mid-afternoon. Wrote a post for the weekend.

* Read everything, checked Facebook, worked in database on the Knowlton family line. I have pretty much what everyone else has on this family, at least that's in print and online. And it is not much, and not especially well done.

* Went in at 4 p.m. to read the paper, watch the Padres game, take a nap, eat dinner, read my book, and do the dishes. The Padres lost 2-1 in the 11th (now 34-24).

* Back online at 7:15 p.m. to read everything, answered some email, and worked on database, doing P through R error corrections - almost finished it. Lots of Richman entries with baptisms and burials in England - added birth and death dates/places based on that information. also lots of duplicates after I merged my databases. Major surgery still needed!

* Listened to election returns during the database work, wrote this post.

Genealogy data was 9.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours working on OASIS class, and 4.0 hours working in the database and online research.
