Daily Journal 2 Nov 2009: Dovie is done!

Pretty much. All of her info in my RootsMagic database is current and her images are uploaded to my ZenPhoto gallery. When I hit the library next week, I’ll check the Tarrant County marriage index and the Fort Worth city directories, maybe the Star-Telegram archives, depending on what I find or don’t find in the marriage index and city directories, for more info on her many marriages.

Next step is to create an in-depth timeline of the Events of Dovie. Of the relatives’ lives that I’ve been closely examining during the past few weeks, most have been pretty simple and straight-forward. But not Dovie.

Certainly not Dovie!

Daily Journal 1 Nov 2009: Image editing

A bit more GenealogyBank searching for Dovie and her host of husbands, didn’t find anything new. I did download several obits for some more-recent relatives from GenealogyBank’s America’s Obituaries section. Nothing new here either, just “devil-in-the-details”-type stuff.

I have downloaded a lot of images relating to Dovie/husbands in the past few days that needed to be “cleaned up” for upload to my gallery, so I got that done today, and got them all into the proper folders.

“Met” a new genealogy blog today, Branching Out Through The Years. This blog has a few posts about the surname Vance, and since I have a Vance line in my genealogy, I left a comment. Maybe we share the same Vances…

Read my RSS feeds, that’s about it for the first day of November.
