My genealogy day - 23 February 2013

It was a stay-at-home Saturday, the last in awhile!  Had some genealogy fun today...

*  Read email and blogs, then listened to the parts of several WDYTYA talks from London on Ancestry's livestream.  Noted that Surname Saturday - KNOWLES (England > Massachusetts) posted.

*  Wrote the SNGF post, and then worked in the database finding sources for Hildreth family members...from Zacharish and Elizabeth (Keyes) Hildreth forward - 3 or 4 generations.  Added quite a few dates and sources to the database.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Ancestor Roulette! posted.

*  Checked Facebook and Google+, watched Kathryn Hogan's webinar on Canadian Census records - lots of detail, good stuff.  

*  Had bathroom flood from sink - the floor is wet.  Propped up sink better, attached pipe again, took everything out, got the fan going to do the floor and under sink. What a mess!

*  Figured out that between RM5 and RM6 something changed so that marriages don't show up in a GEDCOM import to FTM 16.  They do in FTM 2012 and Legacy 7.5, but not FTM 16.  I wonder why?

*  Went in at 4 p.m. to watch the SDSU basketball game, read the paper, and we ate dinner and watched the news.  Got Ruthie's mail.  

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and work on the Ancestry presentation a bit.  

*  Worked in Ancestry to add content - got down past Cleveland...added some sources and some data, finding sources in Ancestry, FamilySearch, Find A Grave and America Ancestors.  Added about 100 sources today.

Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
