My genealogy days - 20-21 August 2011

Not a whole lot of genealogy done these days because of the 24 hours of Grandgirls and parents.

1)  Saturday, 20 August:

*  Read email and blogs, got cleaned up, noted that Surname Saturday - WOOD (England > Massachusetts) posted. 

*  Gathered laptop, off to UCSD at 8:15 a.m. for CGSSD meeting.  "Cloud Computing" SIG with Gary Hoffman, and "Rootsweb Message Boards and Mail Lists" with Hal Horrocks.  Streamed info on Google Plus.

*  Home by 12:30 p.m. to find Tami and family here, down for naps.  Had lunch.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Genealogy Research through I Ching posted.  Worked a bit in Find-a-Grave on Seaver and Vaux listings.

*  Girls up from naps, played with them.  We left at 4 p.m. for Subway, then to Petco Park for Padres game at 5:35.  Had pizza for dinner.  Girls had Subway, popcorn, ice cream, cookies, licorice, peanuts.  They ate for 4 innings.  Padres won 14-1.

*  Home by 9 p.m. to get girls down (endless!), check email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, answered email, checked Facebook.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.

2)  Sunday, 21 August:

*  Finished the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 14 to 20 August 2011 post, got cleaned up. 

*  Tami packed up, went off to the SD Zoo.  We left at 12:30 p.m. 

*  Home by 1 p.m. to see Trevor Hoffman tribute, then Padres game.  got a nap, Pads won 4-3 in bottom of the 9th over Marlins (now 59-70, won 5 straight).     

*  Had dinner, took out trash, watered front plants.  Online at 6 p.m. to read, write 1940 U.S. Census Request for Quote and Statement of Work is out.

*  Found reference list in notebook, found it was in MSWorks Spreadsheet format, so started typing it into Excel spreadsheet format (no transfer apparently).  got 5 of about 30 pages done tonight.  Need to add recent lines to it also. 

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Twitter, G+ and Facebook, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
