My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 23-24 August 2015

I missed journaling again last night, can't remember why...oh yeah, WDYTYA?

1)  Sunday, 23 August 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, and finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 16 to 22 August 2015 post.

*  We went to church at 9:30 a.m., then to the store afterwards, and home by 12 noon.  Watched Sweetwater Valley LL World Series game, they lost to Texas 8-4.  Disappointing.  Then watched some of Padres game - they lost to Cards 10-3.  Drat, so now 61-63.

*  Online at 3 p.m. to write Added or Updated Databases at - Week of August 16 to 22, 2015 and CVGS Program Meeting on Wednesday, August 26th is a "Problem Solving Panel" and set it for later.  also wrote the FamilySearch weekly post.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and watch TV news.  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and transcribe the first half of the William Sever estate account for Amanuensis Monday.

*  Answered email, and worked on the CVGS panel presentation a bit.  At 9 p.m. was reading blogs and saw a post about WDYTYA? and went in and watched whole thing.  Came back to read and not much else.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.

2)  Monday, 24 August 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Week 282: Asset Account of William Sever (1729-1809) Estate of Kingston, Mass. posted.

*  Joined Mondays With Myrt and discussed several topics, showed my GenealogyBank finds.

*  Read email at 10:45 a.m., then worked on the CVGS presentation some more.  Noted that New or Updated Record Collections at - August 17 to 23, 2015 posted.  

*  Had lunch, read blogs and added to the Best Of post, worked a bit in MyHeritage with Record Matches adding content and sources, and then took a nap.  Up at 3:15 p.m. to write Dear Randy: What is the Most Important Skill for Finding Digital Records Online?

*  Checked Facebook, answered email, did some WikiTree merges, and went in at 5 p.m. to watch the SVLL World Series game.  Ate dinner, read the paper.  SVLL won 10-3 over Rhode Island, so now they have to win 4 straight to be the champions.  I doubt if they will.

*  Online at 7:15 p.m. to read, then worked on Ancestry Hints for an hour - got through 144 of them - all the new ones since last time.  Added sources and content.

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
