My Genealogy Wednesday - 31 October 2012

It's only 8:15 PM and I'm nodding off at the keyboard.  I'm tired...not sleeping well.  And now we head off to Topeka on Thursday for a wedding on Saturday, so blogging may be light, depending on Internet access and interest in writing.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 229: 1960 Hallowe'en Costumes.  Gathered my electronics and wires, and put them near the laptop bag.  Made my maps and reservation lists too.

*  Noted that Hallowe'en Name Whacking posted.  Packed up the laptop and off to lunch at 11 AM at McDonalds, and to the library by 11:20 AM.

*  Library auditorium was in a Hallowe'en them, lots of blinking lights, a graveyard on the stage, pretty cool.  Got the laptop set up, had some snacks, and talked to people.  Several guests were there.  Had a good crowd - about 40 to 45.

*  Gary started at about 12:15 PM, and I was up at about 1 PM.  I went for a good 70 minutes on Jane's Roots, then talked to several attendees at length.

*  Stopped by the Bank and was home at 3 p.m.  Wandered around different websites looking for action, checked Facebook and wrote the SNGF post for Saturday.

*  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m., watched TV game shows, read the paper, put out the trash, watered the front plants, and gave out Hallowe'en candy to one group of teenagers.  We have lots left!

*  Online at 7 p.m. to answer email, look for new databases on Ancestry and FamilySearch.  Found Linda's grandmother's death certificate in SF Funeral Home Records.  Cool - no surprises.

*  Decided to add to the Best Of post and write this post and see if it's time to go to bed!
