My genealogy day - 1 September 2011

It was a decent genealogy day - the clock is ticking towards the FGS Conference, and I still have lots to do to prepare for that.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Amy Oatley's 1865 Death Certificate.

*  Got cleaned up, and tested the car's lights.  Not good. Drive down to the repair shop and left it, and walked the mile home uphill and downhill.  Uphill was hard, I stopped at Bjorn's to catch my breath and catch up with him.

*  Back to work, looked in the BLM GLOrecords site and found that Leland and Natvig did not get a land patent in Dane County - good to know.  Made my hotel reservation for RootsTech too.

*  Saw announcement, so researched and wrote has 1790 to 1930 U.S. Census Records and then saw the email that came in an hour earlier.  Had lunch.

*  Wrote Searching Census Records on and then Content from SmallTownPapers and Gannett Leaving Fold3.  Answered several emails.

*  Decided I'd better do something useful, so worked on my Source Reference List for Seaver - got the E to R segment done, only S to Z to go.  We went down at 4 to pick up the car - the lights seem to work OK.

*  Went in at 5:30 to eat dinner on the patio.  Online again at 6:15 to edit the CVGS Newsletter.  Wrote New FamilySearch Historical Collections - August 2011, and added it to the newsletter.  Got it about 90% done, waiting for Susi again. 

*  Recalled that the Chargers were playing, so went in at 7:30 to watch some of it.  Ho hum.  Watched more of it and read my book - almost done.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and Google Plus, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.  Six blog research...some progress toward goals.

"My name is Dick, and I'm a geneaoholic". Oops, did the meeting start yet?

Am recently diagnosed. Began fam.tree on Ancestry for Boston Murphy family and NYC Wilke fam. Now burn up huge hours; I say genealogy is like my wife's beloved crossword puzzles, except it's REAL. Bumped into your blog by Googling Mass EASy.

Am even newer to bloggering. Yesterday I never heard of it; today I yam one.

Live in Kerrville, Texas; was at Grand Opening of Mission Valley Center. Enjoy your humor and your genealogy posts. Will peek in again.
