My Genealogy Saturday - 22 June 2013

It was a pretty good genealogy day.  I'm back from Santa Cruz.  Even did some blog posting while there, and edited my presentation too, but did not have the usual 8 to 10 hours a day - only 2-5 hours a day, mostly reading and adding to curated posts.

*  Had 30 minutes of hassle getting the computer to work - finally rebooted and it was fine after that.  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - WAGET (England? > colonial Massachusetts) posted.  Got a helpful comment too!

*  Reviewed the presentation one more time, found some errors, added some content, saved it to Dropbox, opened laptop, copied it to the laptop file.  Collected my laptop, the projector and extension cord and we were off at 11 a.m.

*  Dropped Linda at Carlsbad outlet mall for lunch with her friend, then down to Encinitas at noon to Borrelli's for the POINTers group meeting.  About 23 in attendance.  Had a great lunch (spaghetti, meatballs, bread) and set up by 1:30 p.m. to give my FamilySearch talk.  Went pretty well, about 75 minutes, and left at 3 p.m. to pick Linda up.  We were home by 4:15 p.m.

*  Watched the Padres game, read the paper and FTMagazine, ate dinner - we lost 6-1 to the Dodgers.  Now 38-37.  Read email and blogs, noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Genealogy Database Statistics posted.

*  Online at 7:30 p.m. to add to the Best Of post, answer some emails, check Facebook, and work in the database.  Added content from Vermont VR databases, added sources, and then found some Find A Grave records that Record Matches missed.  

*  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.
