My genealogy days - 11 and 12 December 2011

Sunday was not much of a genealogy day, but Monday was all day genealogy!

1)  Sunday, 11 December:

*  Read email and blogs, got Best Of post ready.  Went off to church at 9:40 a.m.

*  Home from church at 11:30, updated the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 4 to 10 December 2011 and it posted.  Went in to watch football and read the paper.

*  Watched NFL games, listened to Chargers game (we won 37-10 over Buffalo), and played with the iPhone.

*  We left at 4:15 for Plaza Bonita to shop for Audrey, and had dinner at the Red Robin.  Pretty good. 

*  Home by 6:15 p.m. to read, worked a bit on the Journal, checked Facebook, wrote CVGS Holiday Luncheon is Wednesday, 14 December.

*  Went in at 9 p.m. to watch Chargers highlights, played with iPhone, finished my Lee Child book, forgot to post.

Genealogy on Sunday was maybe 3.0 hours.

2)  Monday, 12 December:

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Advent Calendar - December 12: Charitable/Volunteer Work posted.  Wrote Amanuensis Monday - the Will of Joseph Farwell (1641-1722).
*  Checked RootsTech list of speakers, and wrote First Look at the RootsTech 2012 Schedule, then Tamura Jones finds the GEDCOM X playground.

*  Found an error in my database for a Thomas Clarke, so fixed that and found some sourced data on the family and added several families.  Then I found out they weren't mine.  Drat. 

*  Saw Sheri's Google+ post about the SSDI, so wrote Social Security Death Index Gone from 

*  Made a new, smaller GEDCOM for all my ancestral families, and Linda's, and exported it to FTM 2012 and then synced the new tree to Ancestry.  Then added it to my iPhone, so now I have my ancestral families in a database.  I may modify it because siblings of my ancestors, and some cousins, aren't included. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, and ate dinner, then more TV news.  Played on the iPhone a bit also.  No games yet! 

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, then worked on the Journal.  Got the thing edited then printed the odd pages - will do the even pages tomorrow to let ink dry. 

*  Worked a bit in Ancestry and WorldConnect and Google to add content to some Seaver families in the database. 

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

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
