My genealogy funday - 10 April 2013

Well, baseball sure cuts into the genealogy work...I got nothing done research-wise today.  I need to do research in the afternoon now instead of the evening.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 251: Austin and Della Carringer in 1939 and SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 13 April Features Nancy Loe and Barry Ewell's Family Treasures eBook is Available for FREE and set it for early afternoon.

*  Reviewed the RootsTech videos and decided on Jyl Pattee's Keynote for the Research Group.  Left at 11 a.m. for McDonalds for lunch, then the bank and then the library.

*  Got set up in the auditorium by 11:50 a.m., and we had 16 for the CVGS Research Group.  Showed them the "Where I'm From" poem template, and my poem, and then the Tuesday's Tip and Anne's presentations.  Then showed them the Jyl Pattee Keynote.  Folks seemed to like it, and agreed that we each need to do something to save our family stories.  Then we did Q&A and problem solving and a little success sharing.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, doze off in my desk chair for a minute, and wrote United States Records Available on

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to put out the trash, watered and weeded the plants, and then we had dinner.  After dinner, went out and mowed the front lawn at Linda's insistence.

*  Back at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres-Dodgers game.  Read the paper, checked email, blogs, Facebook, Ancestry hints on the iPhone, then read my novel.  Padres lost 4-3 (now 2-6 on the season).

*  Online at 10:30 p.m.  to read, and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
