My genealogy day - 30 May 2011

It was a true Memorial Day - right on 30 May.  I tried to celebrate it with memories of my ancestors and relatives who served for our country.  We stayed home until dinner time.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Honoring my Ancestors who Served (a repost from years before).  Then wrote Amanuensis Monday: "Tribute Paid to Hero's Worth" - Kenneth L. Blanchard and set it for later in the morning. 

*  Went in at 10:30 a.m. to watch the Padres game.  Read the paper, read some of my book, had lunch, and the Padres won it 3-2 over Braves in 10 innings.  A 3-game winning streak! 

*  Back online at 1:30 p.m. to read, then add to new Footnote Pages and write Celebrating Their Service - Adding Footnote Pages.  The three pages I added didn't show up - maybe Footnote has the day off?  I expect immediate gratification these days!

*  Added good captions to some of my scanned photos.  Need to get them all done and then put into family groups so I know what I have!

*  We left at 5 p.m. to go to Rubio's for dinner, home after 6 p.m.

*  Got into the New England presentation again, moved some charts around, added more detail, and added the pop quiz charts.  That may be fun! 

*  Looked in to see how the info there stacks up with the GEDCOM file downloaded using AncestorSync. has more people than the GEDCOM file had.  The RootsMagic file also downloaded looks consistent with 

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and Twitter, loaded latest GEDCOM into Legacy and FTM2011, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour working in Footnote Pages, 1.0 hour working on photos, 0.5 hour in, 2.0 hours working on presentation.
