My genealogy days - 3 and 4 August 2011

We got home late Wednesday night, so no journal post on Wednesday.

Wednesday, 3 August:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 164: Lyle and Betty at the park and San Diego Genealogical Societies Panel on Sunday, 7 August at Bonita Library.

*  Got cleaned up, and wrote Free Small Digital Books at DMK Heritage and set it for early afternoon.

*  Had lunch, packed up and left at 11:30 a.m. for the bank and library.  Attended CVGS Board meeting, then talked to Ben for about 30 minutes.

*  Home by 3:15 p.m. to read, and write Ben needs help, can you suggest a solution?   Did a little online research but not much.

*  We left at 4:50 p.m. for the trolley to downtown San Diego, ate at the Tin Fish, met our Padres account rep for a drink, and watched the Padres beat the Dodgers 3-0.  Team is 48-64 on the fast track to last place.

*  Home by 11 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and check Facebook.

Genealogy on Wednesday was 8.5 hours.

2)  Thursday, 4 August

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 76: Edward Hildreth's Death Certificate and FamilySearch YouTube Channel.

*  Got cleaned up, worked in FTM for awhile, checked FTM message board, had lunch, then wrote Some Family Tree Maker 2012 Sync Experiences. 

*  Got sidetracked finding Oregon death data, then more FTM work, and mined an Ancestry tree for Seaver information, adding it to my RootsMagic database.  Worked on a website using Blogger.

*  Yvonne called from Westport at 5:30 p.m., and we talked for an hour.  Had dinner, watched TV news, and then back online to work on the CVGS Newsletter.  Got it about 60% finished.

*  Read everything, answered email, checked Facebook, wrote Update on Ben's Identification Problem, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.

Genealogy on Thursday was 12.0 hours.
