My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 6 and 7 September 2015

The Padres lost two more, woe, woe, woe.  But I had some genealogy fun!

1)  Sunday, 6 September:

*  Read email and blogs, and finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 29 August to 5 September 2015 post.  We went off to church at 9:30, and were home by 11:40 a.m.

*  Read, then worked on the CVGS Newsletter.  Sent a proof copy off.

*  Went in to watch the Padres lose to the Dodgers, 5-1, and was bored so took a nap.

*  Online at 3:45 p.m. to read email, then wrote Added or Updated Databases at - Week of August 30 to September 5, 2015 and the FamilySearch post for Monday.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30, and online at 6:10 to watch the Gilad MyHeritage video.  Transcribed the Thomas Gach will for Amanuensis Monday.

*  Searched on Ancestry and FamilySearch for Thomas Gach and family records without much luck.Checked Facebook.  Forgot to journal.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.

2)  Monday, 7 September, Labor Day:

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post #284: 1763 Will of Thomas Gach (1702-1770) of Woodbridge, N.J.posted.

*  Joined Mondays With Myrt and talked about Genealogy Rockstar vote, the Ancestry probate collection, and the MyHeritage video.

*  Worked for about two hours collecting document images for my New Jersey ancestors.  Got 64 images.  Renamed them and put them in a holding file. Noted that New or Updated Record Collections at - August 31 to September 6, 2015 posted.  Wrote Labor Day - "There are things that happen in a second that take a lifetime to explain."

*  Went in at 1:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, got bored and took a nap.  Wrote Watch Gilad Japhet's Keynote Presentation at IAJGS 2015 Conference - Genea-Magic! then went back and watched the end of the Padres game.  Pads lost to Rockies 6-4.  Drat, so now 65-73 I think.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, and watched TV.  Online at 6:15 p.m. to make final corrections to CVGS Newsletter, and sent it out via email.  Printed the master off for the mailing on Tuesday.

*  Checked Facebook, then worked through 203 Ancestry Hints adding content and sources to the database.  Sources up to 64,944.

*  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
