Randy's Genealogy Day - 22 September 2010

It was a decent genealogy day - I moved the database ball a bit, blogged a bit, and survived Linda's first attempt at using Facebook. Then the Padres won...

* Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 121: Georgia (Kemp) Auble in 1898 and then Other Records for Jane, Leah and Rachel Morley in Lancashire and got cleaned up.

* Wrote New England Historical and Genealogical Register - July 2010 Table of Contents and set it for early afternoon.

* Worked in the database making better sources - adding author, publication data and repository where needed. I need to find the microfilm numbers and other data for some sources now, and website information for many, especially online state vital record collections.

* Linda stayed home today after her brush yesterday, she made lunch, and I came back to work in the database adding source citations to several of my Rhode Island families. These are usually surname books or articles as opposed to town vital records. Did some online searches for specific families that I have little or no textual material for.

* Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner and read the paper. After dinner, Linda tried to use Facebook with my direction. She did OK. I watered the front plants as therapy. Then the Padres game, and I finished my Parker novel during the game, and reviewed four years of NEHGR volumes for ancestral families. Found some that I missed, I think. Plus some books for the "to be found and read" list. Padres won 3-1 over Dodgers to move into first place in NL West.

* Read everything, checked Facebook, wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blog posts, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Twitter and Facebook, and 4.0 hours working in my database on sources.
