1)  Sunday, 4 August:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 28 July to 3 August, 2013 post.  We went off to church at 9:30 a.m. and home by 11:30 a.m.

*  worked on the Brown problem for awhile, then went in to watch the Padres game.  Pads beat the Yankees 6-3 (now 11-6 in last 17, 7-3 in last 10, and 52-60 overall).

*  Online at 4, worked on the Brown problem some more, adding items to the Research log.  Wrote Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - August 2013 and July 31st Program Review - "Women Heroes of the American Revolution."

*  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m., watched TV news, ate dinner, fed the birds and watered the front plants, and cut back the roses.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, write the Amanuensis Monday post, add to the Eclectica post, check Facebook, and work in the database adding content and sources.

2)  Monday, 5 August:

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Henry Brooks (1592-1683) of Woburn, Mass. posted.

*  Couldn't join the Mondays with Myrt HOA until later because I had no link to join.  Finally in about 9:20 a.m. and participated in it.  Talked a bit about DNA testing, and name patterns.

*  Wrote and posted Hunting for Hannah Brown's Birth Family in Colonial Massachusetts.  Had lunch, then hunted for the Brown notebook, found it and read it.  I had quite a bit of material! I have an excellent candidate for Hannah Brown's parents, but have no conclusive records yet.

*  Answered email, and wrote Top Ten Genealogy Software Reviews for 2013.  Worked some more on the Brown notebook info, and looked for more online.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. for dinner, read the paper, watch TV news, and get Ruthie's mail.
