Tuesday the 27th
Since this was a "sick" day, I didn't get much done beyond the usual tasks of email, blog reading, tweets, and Face Book. Since those are a daily , "more than three times a day" to-do items, when you don't feel week, it can seem surmountable. Between my iPod touch and my netbook, I don't have to stay in my office all day to do much of those taks.
I had a phone call from another genealogist who lives in CA but is of New England birth. He's met Thomas MacEntee and was surprised to learn we are cousins. It must be because Thomas is prettier and smarter. OK, so I know Thomas read this...
My caller wanted to know more about genealogy courses online and if I thought they helped. He wants to write his family history. He is also considering a Master's program but doesn't think he wants it totally online like mine. I hope I helped him! Just for fun I told him about the story I am writing.
The photos that the other person took at the Lower Mystic Cemetery of the oldest gravestones are way better than mine. I am going to blog about that. I can transcribe hers and put them back on my list to re-photograph next August. She remembered taking them in the morning. I am going to be doing a lot more morning gravestone work.
I read more of "Her Fearful Symmetry" and "Seeking Spirits".
