My genealogy day - 17 April 2011

Not much blogging, worked in the database some and did more research on Maggie's family.

*  Up late, read email and blogs, then off to church at 9:40 a.m.   Talked to Maggie afterwards and got more info on some of her family members. 

*  Home by 11:30 a.m. to watch the Padres game (eventually won 8-6 over Houston - now 7-8 on the season).  Noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 10-16 April 2011 posted.

*  Back to work after 2 p.m., read everything, started entering Maggie's family info into a RootsMagic database.  Tried to source everything...  Did more research on her parents immigration and a census record. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner and wait for Linda to do her computer work.

*  Online again at 7 p.m. to read, then work on 1860, 1870 and 1880 census source citations.  Got them done!  Will do 1910, 1920 and 1930 next, because there are a lot of 1900s. 

*  Answered some email, tried to make my Jamboree reservation, checked Facebook, made a GEDCOM file in RM4 and a small webpage set to see how it works, started the next Best Of post, and wrote this post.
