My Genealogy Thursday - 12 September 2013

This was almost an all-genealogy day, save for the Padres game.  Some surprises today!  Surprises almost always lead to blog fodder, so I like them.

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 181: 1930 U.S. Census for Henry Carringer Household in San Diego, California

*  Research and wrote First Look at Family Tree Maker 2014 - Mea Culpa! Looking Again at the Person Migration Map in the Places Workspace.

*  worked on the party address list.  Wrote five blog posts scheduled for during the vacation.  

*  Checked the AncestryDNA site an hour before the presentation, noted that I was one of the chosen few, and wrote First Look at my AncestryDNA Ethnicity Update and set it for later.

*  Connected using GoToMeeting for the AncestryDNA presentation but had to call in to hear the presentation and discussion.  Used my cell phone and earplugs to avoid a long distance bill.  Interesting discussion, learned a lot new, and wish I could repeat what I heard but I can't - I don't learn that way.  I'll leave it to others to highlight the discussion.  I did get to ask my question about the time frame, and the answer was "nobody knows for sure!"

*  Went in at 4 p.m. to watch the Padres game (had a rain delay), read the paper, and we ate dinner too.  Put the new phone system together and scrapped the old one.  Padres lost I think, I left in the 7th inning with them behind 9-5.  

*  Came in at 7:15 p.m. and worked on the party address labels and gave them to Linda.  

*  Wrote two posts for Friday since I'm off to school again for half the day.  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook and wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
