My genealogy day - 10 October 2012

This was pretty much an all genealogy day, including the CVGS Research Group.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 226: Swimsuits in 1923 and then Web Searching Using Family Tree Maker 2012.

*  Checked for new databases, then packed up the laptop and left for lunch at McDonalds at 11 a.m., and was at the library by 11:30 a.m.  Got set up with the laptop, the tablet hot spot, and couldn't get any websites to load for some reason.

*  The CVGS Research Group started at 12 noon, and we talked about DNA for the first hour.  The laptop worked and I showed my autosomal results on FTDNA and AncestryDNA, then showed my Y and mtDNA results too on Ancestry.  In the second hour, we went around the table discussing current activities.  It was a lively two-plus hours.

*  Was home by 2:45 p.m. to read, then wrote Dear Randy - What to Do With My Family Photo Albums?  Answered email and checked Facebook.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the baseball game, read the paper, and we had dinner.  Put the trash out  

*  Online after 6 p.m. to read, then worked in Find-A-Grave through MyHeritage and worked through 20 more matches.  Found many more through links on those - I wonder if MyHeritage has found them all?

*  Created reports for Seaver descendants from the 2nd generation - will put them on Scribd sometime soon.  

*  Karen gave me a neat link at and I read through several of the documents.  Fascinating stuff!

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.
