My genealogy day - 12 August 2011

It was a pretty busy genealogy day - I spent quite a bit of time in the database entering data and sources.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Follow Friday - Weekend Genealogy Fun.  Got cleaned up, went off to the health center for my lab tests.  Oops, the doctor forgot to put the order in.  Maybe next week?  That's frustrating - wasted 45 minutes of my genealogy time.

*  Found the Vaux book chapters, found the password on the old computer (note to self:  capture those correspondence emails sometime soon!).  Entered data for three Vaux ancestral families - notes, vitals, sources. 

*  Had lunch, wrote FGS 2011 Conference Program - my Wednesday selections, checked the FTM2012 Sync Beta message board, and went back to the Vaux book chapters again. 

*  Went into FamilySearch collections and captured more Massachusetts birth and death record images.  Then added dates and sources for many 19th century ancestral family members searching systematically. 

*  Wrote Family Tree Maker 2012 Beta News.

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and eat dinner.  Came in at 7 p.m. to listen to the Geneabloggers Radio show and chat. 

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday post, the Saturday Night Genealogy Fun post added to the Best Of post, checked in on Facebook, and wrote this post.  Whew - the blogging fool strikes again.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
