My genealogy days - 30 and 31 August 2012

These were not BIG genealogy days...

1)  Thursday, 30 August 2012:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1880 U.S. Census Record for Thomas Richmond Family and then My FTM 2012 File Synced with Ancestry - only needed more Patience and set it for later in the morning.  

*  Found significant double date errors in the FTM and AMT databases - tracked it down to a GEDCOM problem somewhere between RM5 and AMT, probably in the LFT reading the RM GEDCOM.  Drat.  What now?  That doesn't will have to upload the RM5 database to FTM2012 to AMT.

*  Wrote Riding the Ancestry Time Machine and went in for a nap and watched TV around 2 p.m.

*  We left at 3:15 p.m. for Lake Elsinore to pick up the girls.  Hit traffic in Temecula and got to the outlets at 5:15, got the girls, stopped in Murrieta at Chik-Fil-A for dinner, and home by 8:15 p.m.  

*  Got the girls fed, bathed, pottied, and down for bed by 9:30.  I was distracted by the Chargers game.  Audrey didn't go to sleep until after 11:30, nor did I!

Genealogy this day was about 6 hours.

2)  Friday, 31 August 2012:

*  Audrey came into my bed at 5 a.m. and we didn't sleep much after that.  Up at 7 a.m. to get her breakfast and drink, Lauren up at 8 p.m., fed her too, they watched TV and played all morning.

*  I was able to read email and blogs, then write Follow-Up Friday - Helpful Reader Comments From This Past Week and Legacy Family Tree Cruise 2013 News and set it for later.

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday post, and two posts for the CVGS blog.  Made a new GEDCOM and uploaded to an AMT.  Also uploaded it to FTM2012.

*  We all went down for naps at 1 p.m.  I was up at 2 p.m. to read, work in the database a bit, and at 3:45 p.m. we left for Barbara's to swim.  The girls are time!

*  We got home by 5:30 to change clothes, went to El Pollo Loco for dinner, and home by 6:45 p.m. to watch the Padres game.  They won 5-4 over the Rockies.  Girls got baths, read to and in bed by 9 p.m.  

*  Online at 9 p.m. to read, then started Sync of new FTM2012 tree to AMT at 9:15 p.m.  Added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
