My genealogy days - 26 and 27 September 2011

What, I missed journaling on Wednesday?  Completely forgot after getting home from the Padres game.  Now I wonder if I can remember what I did on Monday.

1)  Monday, 26 September:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Amanuensis Monday - the Will of Thomas Rice (1626-1681) of Sudbury MA and then Family Tree Maker 2012 TreeSync - Differences Between Online and Desktop Trees.

*  Ate lunch at 11, and went off to the library at 11:30 to consult with Ruth and Wanda on CVGS stuff, and do a research query.  Found it easily! 

*  Home by 1 p.m. to read, answer some emails, doze off at the computer, finally wrote FamilySearch Research Courses - 209? 273? 262?

*  We left before 5 p.m. for the trolley, ate at the Tin Fish, and were in Petco Park by 6:30 for the Padres game at 7.  We won 2-0 over the Cubs (now 70-90 on the year). 

*  Home by 10:30 p.m. to read, check Facebook, but didn't blog.

Genealogy on Monday was 8.0 hours.

2)  Tuesday, 27 September:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Mary Smith (1805-1865) in Burnett WI.  Answered some emails, and did a little research for them.

*  Wrote Can I Ever Tame (even manage?) my Genea-Monster? and then had lunch.

*  Added the John Warren of Watertown info from the Eva Belle Kempton book to my database - had most of it already. 

*  Got into the FamilySearch databases and tried to complete the New Hampshire marriages in the database.  Got through the first 100 - I already had some, added several new marriages, and added sources for some also.  Still lots to do.

*  Wrote Family Tree Maker 2012 TreeSync - Questions Answered. 

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news, we ate dinner, I watered the front plants.

*  Back online briefly at 6:30 p.m. to read, added to the Best Of post and checked Facebook.

*  Padres game started at 7, lost to Cubs 6-2 after leading 2-1 into the 8th.  Drat.

*  Wrote this post, checked Facebook and I'm done!

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
