My Genealogy Monday - 29 July 2013

This was a very typical Monday when I have an OASIS class to teach.  The Padres won, also!

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Bridget (--?--) (Verry) Giles (1600-1680) of Salem, Massachusetts posted.  Then wrote My Top Ten Most Useful Online Genealogy Databases to Research My Family Tree and set it for later in the morning.

*  Packed up the flash drive and handouts for my final OASIS class in this series, and off to my 10:15 a.m. class in Mission Valley.  Was there 45 minutes early, set up the flash drive presentation and the different websites, checked in at the office, and chatted as the students came in.  This was a good class of 12 - some had genealogy experience, many didn't.  Good questions and they seemed to do their homework.  Over at 12:30 and headed home.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to eat lunch, read, then watched the Mondays With Myrt.  Answered some email, modified an article for a newsletter, and checked Facebook and Google+.  Post #7000 on Genea-Musings posted also.

*  Spent an hour doing online research, adding sources and content to the database.  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, supervise the kids working in the garden, and back online for more research and citing.

*  Went in at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper then my Michael Palmer book, and wash the dishes.  Pads won 2-1 over the Reds on a walk-off homer by Denorfia in the bottom of the 9th.  Kelly got splashed again with the gatorade.  Pads now 49-58, won 7 of 11.  

*  Online at 10 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
