Genea-Journal - 12/16/07

Like most Sundays in football season, this was not a big genealogy day for me. We went to church at 9:30 and were home at 11:30. I hurriedly read my email and Bloglines, then posted my Christmas Advent Memory on Christmas Church Services.

Then it was football day in San Diego, as my Chargers waxed the poor Detroit Lions 51-14 in a game that wasn't that close. No stress today! Hooray - I then took a nice nap after expending all of my emotional energy. At 5 PM, I wandered back into the computer, and decided that I had better do my Best of the Genea-blogs post for the week before dinner, just in case some East Coast readers are checking for it. Then it was dinner time, then news, and I watched the first half of the Redskins-Giants game. Besides, Linda was on the computer.

At 7:30, I got back on and checked the email and Bloglines again, and noticed that there is a meme going around about where you were on census years, so I posted my own list. Then it was back to watch the Charger highlight show after the football game (since DH was a re-run). At 9:30, I came back and decided to do more census searching for the McLaughlins, and found them in South Dakota (only because my correspondent said her great-grandma was born in SD) in the 1900 and 1910 census. I also found her in Santa Barbara CA in 1920, married, but without her husband, who is apparently not in any US census record (born in Scotland in 1888, died in 1922).

Genealogy time today - only 3.0 hours, of which 1.5 hours was blogging, 0.5 hours was reading email and Bloglines, and 1.0 hour was research in Ancestry.
