My Genealogy Wednesday and Thursday - 27-28 January 2016

I didn't have time on Wednesday to journal, so I'm trying to remember two days worth of genealogy activity.

1)  Wednesday, 27 January 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote NGS 2010 Conference in Salt Lake City (Part 1) -- Post 397 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and another post for next week. Then wrote Lisa Louise Cooke is Featured Speaker at Orange County, California Genealogical Society BASH on 5 March 2016 and set it for later.  Took a short nap.

*  Left at 11 a.m. for McDonalds for lunch, then to the bank, and then to Bonita library to help set up for the CVGS program.  Talked to Gena for awhile, then enjoyed her presentation.  

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, work on the Simon Gates biography, then researched and wrote Standardized Historical and Current Place Names - Post 2: Two Potential RootsMagic Solutions.

*  Found out that the streaming classes and syllabus from RootsTech were available, so wrote RootsTech 2016 Streaming Video Class Schedule and RootsTech 2016 Class Syllabus Available.

*  Went in at 5:45 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner and read the paper, and put the trash out.  

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, then worked on the CVGS newsletter for February, since I'm going to be gone all of next week.  

*  Checked Facebook, and discovered Ancestry Hint changes.  Answered email, and added to the Best Of post.  Genealogy this day was 10.0 hours.

2)  Thursday, 28 January 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday Post 298: 1766 Marriage Record of Simon Gates and Susanna Reed in Marlborough, Mass. and another for next week.

*  Worked on reading and printing syllabus articles.  Has a printer problem - the black ink stopped working.  After a brief Facebook discussion, a "Printhead Clean" worked.  

*  Researched and wrote Revises "People With Hints" Presentation and then took my nap.

*  Back online at 3 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and wrote Standardized Historical and Current Place Names - Post 3: An Elegant Solution.  Checked Facebook, answered email, and read more syllabus articles.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner, read the paper and then watched the debate.

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, then worked on the CVGS Newsletter, and I'm done.  Genealogy today was 12.0 hours.
