My genealogy days - 25 and 26 April 2011

Two very different genealogy days...

Monday, 25 April 2011:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Amanuensis Monday - Revolutionary War Pension File Affidavit of Joseph Champlin (1758-1850).  Got cleaned up.

*  Worked on the Chula Vista Home Tour images, edited some images, printed out the good ones.  Listened to the FGS My Society radio program, wrote 21st Century Genealogical Societies.   

*  Gathered up the Genealogy 101 Class 3 and Class 4 syllabus pages. Made word files of several articles, printed them off for Genealogy 101 class.

*  Left at 1:50 p.m. for the UPS Store to meet Olive.  Enlarged several images for Olive to get laminated for home tour.  Made 18 copies of the Genealogy 101 Class 3 and 4 syllabus.
