My genealogy day - 22 September 2011

We got back from our 16 day vacation on Wednesday, 21 September, at 9 p.m.  I couldn't find my keys to get us in the house at first...but we had given the neighbor one so no problem.  I found them in my suitcase under all of the clothes Linda didn't wear (yes, hers was full, so she added stuff to mine).  My suitcase was overweight at Chicago, so removed the FGS bag of papers and the two AAA travel books and it was good to go.  I carried them on board.

After a decent night's sleep, I worked at genealogy all day and had a good bit of fun.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Rose Anna (Noel) Seaver's Death Certificate and then Visiting the Beaver Dam (Wisconsin) Community Library.

*  Sorted through the two bags of paper to cull the throwaway stuff, get the research material into separate folders, charge both cameras, capture the goodies from FGS, etc.  Copied FGS syllabus and September photos from flash drive, then the recent photos from Linda's camera.

*  Wrote New Subscription Discount and Family Tree Maker 2012 Pre-Sale.  Ordered FTM2012 online for $23.99.  Should have waited to learn about the discount code - it could have been $19.99.  Drat.

*  Answered several emails, some from two weeks ago.  Got onto Twitter and Google Plus to add followers and read. 

*  Entered the Norwegian data and sources into my RootsMagic database.  Was contacted by a Leland researcher two weeks ago and now I have the answer for him from my trip research!  That's cool.

*  Watched Marian's webinar on Connecticut Resources.  An excellent summary!

*  Went in to eat dinner on the patio at 5:30, and back online by 6.  Answered more emails.  Printed out the two Casefile Clues reports and read them.

*  Watched the JK Rowling WDYTYA (English version) episode - very well done, interesting records, touching story.  I hope that makes it to the US series next year.

*  Put Thursday's "Good" Genea-Reads together.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 12.0 hours - it's great to be back!  I wonder how badly my Genea-Musings stats have fallen off, even though I posted every day.  Not too bad, actually.  Good.
