Where is my money?

Hello, i was out for a business trip and left my 2 rigs solo mining using geth and claymore's, when i got home saturday afternoon i checked my balance and had 30 ETH, found 6 blocks while away, but the geth console was getting a lot of sync problems and was not sending new jobs to mine, tried to update the database using the geth updatedb command but didn't work, so i used the geth removedb command to wipe the corrupted database and then geth --fast to sync a new blockchain, it's still syncing and about 50% to complete but now when i do geth attach and check my balance it turns 0, does anyone knows what might happened? i can't find my money :(

    You have to wait until you sync up to the blocks you found for your balance to show. Finding 6 blocks solo mining with two rigs is highly unlikely tho. You might have been on the wrong chain if you were running an older version of geth.

    thanks for the replies, i am getting 240 Mhs, actually is 1-1/2 rig, waiting for more cards to arrive, I'm running geth 1.5, i read something about mining in the wrong chain, ho i can prevent that? i am averaging 1 block every 2-3 days, still is more than pool mining, i was away for 3 days and when i got back home i found the problem, previous blocks are already in my poloniex account with no problems, guess i'm going to have to wait until it syncs, will keep you posted, regards

    OK, I'm lost again, i synced the block chain up to the blocks i found and got my balance back in my wallet just before finishing to being fully synced, so i transfered the balance to my poloniex account, and after the transaction i got the green confirmation number (which i didn't write down), the balance didn't make it to poloniex and i assumed i had to wait until it was fully synced to the last block, but now it is and i still didn't receive the balance, now my wallet shows 0 eth after the withdraw, is there a way to check historical transactions on geth?
