Day Log 6-10-09

No work yesterday because of 1) Millie’s graduation from the 2nd grade and 2) a funeral service and gathering afterwards Lisa had to go to, leaving me w/ kids, and 3) a softball game. Also was slowed this morning by 4) dentist visits for Lisa & Millie leaving little guy with me.

  • Transcribed Livingston notes, about 3 hours. There are now 766 entries in the Correspondence database. Most of my transcribing today covered the letters from Daniel Clark including his very long quasi-autobiographical ones.
  • Also started the project of creating a spreadsheet with all the various court cases from all the various courts in Louisiana and New Orleans in the period of my dissertation. Today I compiled from the NO Public Library’s website a file including all the cases for the Orleans Parish Court which was instituted in 1813 and the records exist through 1835.
  • AND, update: composed the above summary of Louisiana Courts.
