My genealogy day - 20 December 2012

The end of the world?  When?  Tomorrow?  Oh no, if I back up my genealogy tonight will someone find it sometime?  Or has this all been for nought?  Oh well, nothing we can do about it.  If we wake up in the morning, and it's all still here, then i'll keep blogging.

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - 1900 U.S. Census Record for Charles Auble Family.

*  We left at 9 a.m. for the shopping center to look for gifts for Linda, and get See's Candy as gifts for others.  What a debacle - two hours of wandering around stores with little that she was interested in.  Did get the candy, though, and I got two free pieces for my morning snack.

*  Home after 11 a.m. to read, then wrote Finished Using MyHeritage Record Matching for SSDI Matches.  

*  Checked Ancestry and FamilySearch for new databases, and found Ranslow Smith in the Wisconsin BLM Tract collection.  Then worked in FamilySearch Family Tree for the two Kemp families.  

*  Checked out the FamilySearch Books and read some, then had a "blue screen of death" experience, rebooted, and finished up FamilySearch "Books" - More than Old Books!  Checked Facebook, looked for an obituary in GenealogyBank for a CVGS query.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Poinsettia Bowl, eat dinner, read the paper.  Aztecs led 6-3 at the half, but BYU defense made it 23-6.

*  Online at 8:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and did 18 Find A Grave entries, plus more, from the MyHeritage list.  Added content and sources to the database.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
