My genealogy days - 6 and 7 June 2011

Seems like all I did was blog and prepare for the Research Group the last two days.

1)  Monday, 6 June:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Amanuensis Monday - Thomas Dill's Revolutionary War Pension Declaration and then wrote Navigating Ancestry.com - Post 4: Old Search, Advanced Form.

*  Got cleaned up, gathered the CVGS Newsletter pages and labels and off to the UPS Store to publish the June issue.  Took about 30 minutes.

*  Home by 11:15 a.m. to read, eat lunch, and write Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - June 2011 and June 2011 issue of CVGS Newsletter is online on the CV Genealogy Cafe blog.  Emailed CVGS list with newsletter.

*  Wrote Getting Ready for the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree and went in to read the paper, watch TV News and take a nap.

*  Back online at 4, answered some email, sent Wiki talk off to Pauline for NSDCGS talk in July.

*  Packed up and left at 5 p.m. for Panera Bread for dinner, the trolley station to go to Petco Park.  Got there at 6:30 p.m., Padres lost 3-0 to Rockies. 

*  Home by 10:45 p.m. to read, but didn't post.

2)  Tuesday, 7 June:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote SCGS Jamboree Live Streaming Some Saturday Sessions and Tuesday's Tip - Find Historical County Boundaries with Randy Majors' Map Tool and set it for later in the morning.

*  Checked for cemetery resource articles, and found several.  worked on the presentation for CVGS Research Group, ate lunch, and back to it.  Fixed the bathroom sink again...drat.

*  Researched and wrote FamilySearch has New Research Courses and then Family Tree Magazine's Best 101 Genealogy Websites for 2011.

*  Transferred cemetery talk to flash drive, then to laptop, and ready for Research Group on Wednesday.  Telephone call about Mexican research lasted 30 minutes - interesting!

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner.  Back online at 6:15 p.m. to read everything, then get photos off Linda's camera.  My camera is still hosed.  Checked Facebook and Twitter.

*  Watched the Padres game, read the paper, then finished my Joe Pike book.  Pads won 2-0 over Rockies (now 28-34 on the season).  Washed the dishes.

*  Read everything, added to Best Of post, and wrote this post.
