My genealogy Monday - 19 November 2012

It was a decent genealogy day today - my 3rd OASIS class was today, and I got new software to play with.

*  Read email and blogs, started a new Best Of post, and noted that Amanuensis Monday - Will of Joseph Carter (1604-1676) of Woburn, Mass. posted last night (my mistake...).

*  Got Linda's bandage fixed up, and left at 9:15 a.m. for the OASIS class. Got there by 9:40, got set up, and had 8 students today (out of 9 registered) for the 3rd class. wild card searches worked on the laptop there with Firefox like a charm.

*  Done by 12:15 p.m. and home by 12:45 p.m. even with a stop at the gas station.

*  Read, tried to duplicate Ancestry wild card searches and failed again.  Is it Chrome?  Had the Widdit adware pop-up and tried to figure out how to get rid of it.  McAfee and MSS did not show it, and it disappeared after I ran both of them.  Strange.

*  We left at 2:15 p.m. to visit Ruth, then to Dolla Tree for plates and napkins for Thanksgiving, and were home by 3 p.m.

*  Linda wanted to see her toe pix on Facebook with all of the comments, and then spent an hour doing her email.  Argghhh.

*  Finally online at 4 p.m. to read and wrote Pruning the Tree - a Wrong Buck Family.  Did some work on Amos Underhill family - downloaded census records.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m, read the paper, watched football and did the dishes.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, add citations for Amos Underhill census records, found some Find-A-Grave records for him also.

*  Worked in the database on Buck and other names, adding content and sources.  Almost done with the B names!

*  Decided to download RootsMagic 6.  Download worked fine, paid for it, got the registration key, and can't figure out how to get the key into the program so I can use it.  Sent an email to RM.

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.
