I know I've not posted in this journal since Christmas Eve ... I've been busy! Christmas Day was hectic. Wednesday, I drove to Santa Cruz with my daughter and her boys, and flew back on Thursday.
I did check email and Bloglines on Christmas Day but didn't post anything but a Christmas wish. On Wednesday morning I posted a Christmas Day summary but then we left for our 11 hour drive. When I got home on Thursday afternoon, I posted this week's installment of Della's Journal and the SDGS meeting announcement for 12 January on Genea-Musings.
Today was a different story. After a good nights sleep, I read my email and Bloglines, and answered several emails in the morning, and did my NFL picks on my Busy Life blog. In the afternoon, I posted on Genea-Musings the Finding Nuggets that Solve the Puzzle and a summary of how I did with my 2007 Genealogy Resolutions. I had to do some office work and run to the library to return an overdue book.
Tonight after dinner, I decided to try to find some of Della (Smith) Carringer's cousins in the census records - specifically the Dyar, Munger and Woodward families. I had good luck finding the Dyars and Mungers in the 1900 to 1930 census records, but the Woodwards are elusive - two sets of parents died fairly young and the children were farmed out to relatives. That took awhile, but it was fun! I think I know what happened to Ada Woodward, the girl whose picture I have here.
Genealogy today - a total of 7.0 hours, of which 2.0 was reading and answering email, 1.0 was reading Bloglines, 1.0 was writing blog posts, and 3.0 was researching the Dyar and other families.
