My Genealogy Thursday - 1 August 2013

I got August off to a great genealogy start with a full day of working on research, the database, and the blog.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 175: Death Certificate for Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976) and then Standards, GEDCOM, FHISO, and my Genea-Fantasy and set it for later.

*  Scanned the Carringer probate papers, and tried to enhance the contrast with PhotoScape.  It helped a little.  Transcribed four pages with the two windows technique.  Came back after lunch and did some more.  Edited the source citation too.

*  Tried to watch Tom Kemp's Legacy Webinar but it buffered forever.  Watched one of Lisa's Google videos instead, and then Tessa's video too.  

*  Wrote Listing My Elizabeth LNU Elusive Ancestors and then watched Jen's HOA about WDYTYA.

*  Went in to watch TV news, read the paper, water the front plants, get Ruthie's mail and eat dinner.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then added to the database a bit, answered some email, added to the Best Of and Eclectica posts, and then worked in the database adding sources and content for the start of the D people.  Got through Daniels - I need to focus on doing this rather than doing it haphazardly. 

*  Checked Facebook, read, and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.5 hours
