My genealogy day - 15 November 2011

It was another fairly full genealogy day, interrupted by a visit to the dental hygienist.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - Check Out the Penny Postcards on USGenWeb Archives.

*  Got cleaned up, left at 9:40 a.m. for the dentist office.  Stopped at the bank on the way home.  Two birds with one trip.

*  Home by 11:30 a.m. to write Richard Sandler Wins a FREE RootsTech 2012 Registration!   Had lunch.

*  Worked in FTM 2012, then wrote Exploring Family Tree Maker 2012 - Post 24: Adding a Media Item.

*  Found the Dodge County newspaper articles I copied in Beaver Dam, so transcribed two of them into the database.  Added children to the Lyman Smith and George Smith families - they are cousins to my Devier Smith. 

*  Went in at 5:30 to eat dinner, watch TV, and read the paper.

*  Back on the computer by 6:15 p.m. to read, then transcribe two more articles, and add sources for the articles and the census data entered before.  Answered some email.

*  Snooped around in the database looking for obvious errors using a random search - found some names in capitals, and then looked in the SSDI for folks in the database - found probably 15 to 20 that I didn't have, so added them.  Mainly distant cousins of myself or Linda. 

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

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
