My genealogy day - 8 December 2012

Only 16 more shopping days until Christmas, counting Sundays...guess I'd better find out what Linda wants.  I want a laptop...and a DNA test!

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - CLARK (England > Massachusetts) posted.  Worked on the SNGF post and set it for later.

*  Wrote the Christmas family letter and got the mailing labels printed.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Cassmob's Christmas Genea-Meme posted.  Had Linda proof the letter.

*  Worked a bit more in a lot of friends but have no clue what to pin!  Joined several Communities on Google+.  Checked Facebook too.

*  Worked in the database a bit - got through the Bs finally!  On to the Cs!  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV news, eat dinner and wash the dishes.  

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, and print 100 copies of the first page of the Christmas letter.  I'll let them dry out overnight and do page two tomorrow.  Linda got the envelopes labelled and stamped, and the cards signed.  My job is to make the letters, stuff the letters and lick the envelopes.  They should go out on Monday if everything goes well.

*  worked in the database for awhile - did 20 SSDI entries and about 14 Find A Grave entries on MyHeritage list (but did lots more FAG entries by using links to relatives).  Wrote this post.
