Randy's Genealogy Day - 14 November 2010

Not much of a genealogy day, although I worked in my database a bit.  Yikes - almost halfway through November and haven't started on Family Newsletter for Christmas.  What to write for the family? 

*  Read email and blogs, then went off to church at 9:30 a.m.

*  Home at 11:40 a.m., wrote Best of the Genea-Blogs - 7-13 November 2010 even though I didn't make my own list.  Noted that FREE Lecture on 18 November - Genealogy: Be An Ancestry Detective! posted.

*  Went in to watch end of early football games and eat lunch.

*  Back online at 1:30 p.m., set up laptop with FTM 2010 and desktop with FTM 16 and worked through the O place names adding countries, fixing shorthand sources, etc.  Lots of them because I used "of a place" a lot...often without county/state.

*  Went in at 3:30 p.m. to watch end of late games, read the paper, tried to nap, failed.  Went out and cut back roses and watered front plants.  Ate dinner watching the evening game until halftime.

*  Back online at 7:30 p.m., read everything, checked Facebook, wrote SDGS 11/13 Program Review - Heirlooms and Cemeteries

*  Checked online trees and web sites for Ebenezer Phillips/Mary Smith family - got into AmericanAncestors and found source pages for these families and added citations to database. 

*  Wrote this post. 

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, and 3.0 hours working in the database.
