My Genealogy Friday - 20 December 2013

It was not much of a genealogy day - only wrote, worked with my iPhone, and read.  No research.  More shopping and a little success.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Follow-Up Friday - Interesting and Helpful Reader Comments and then Fascinating Composite "Then and Now" 1906 San Francisco Earthquake Pictures and set it for later.

*  Wrote a post for next week, and then went off shopping at 12:30 p.m. Fashion Valley looking for nice clothes for Linda (not many I liked at Macys, Penneys, or Nordys) and jewelry (found a nice cubic zirconia emerald set at Macys, 60% off retail).  Home by 3 p.m.

*  Read email, and answered several emails.  

*  Worked on getting my music onto the iPhone.  Went through the music list and tried to edit the artists and titles to be consistent, and eliminate duplicates.  

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news and eat dinner.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and then imported the music to the iPhone using the USB connection.  Worked!   Added photos to the two grandkid collections, and imported them as well.  Used the Apple Help to figure this out, it wasn't simple.  

*  Researched and wrote two Surname Saturday posts, and read the 1884 issue of The R.I. H.S. periodical on Google Books.  Interesting!

*  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.

My Genealogy Thursday - 19 December 2013

It really wasn't much of a genealogy day due to other commitments and priorities.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 193: Death Certificate for Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver.  Watched Sheri's video and wrote Sheri Fenley's "Dancing Reindeer" Christmas Video With Her Friends.

*  Went off at 11 a.m. for the shopping center, walked by every store and got nothing.  Zip.  Frustrating.  Went to Costco for a Polish dog for lunch and bought nothing there also.  Home by 1 p.m.

*  Researched and wrote First Look at Legacy Family Tree Version 8.0 - Post 12: Family Bow-Tie Chart.  Checked in on Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and updated apps and stuff on the iPhone.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner and read the paper.  We left at 6:15 p.m. for the play at the North Park Theater.  We saw "White Christmas" - it was a bit hokey but okay, good cast and production.  

*  Home by 10:45 p.m. to read, write this post.  Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.

My Genealogy Wednesday - 18 December 2013

This was a pretty full genealogy day - got some things accomplished and added more stuff to the new iPhone.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, put out the trash and wash the dishes.

I actually went shopping today for Christmas, and really made out well.

*  Linda came home at 11:30 a.m. and we left for In 'n' Out for lunch, then to Verizon for my big Christmas present.  I got an iPhone 5s, and since Linda couldn't upgrade yet without a penalty, we moved her phone number to the iPhone 4.  I had signed up for iCloud earlier, so all of my iPhone 4 apps and data were transferred to the 5s.  We shopped at Wal-mart and got Linda some new clothes for Christmas.  

*  Home by 3:45 p.m., I wrote Dear Randy: "What Is Your Naming Convention for Downloaded Documents?"

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, we ate dinner, and I deleted some of the apps on the iPhone 4, signed Linda into Facebook, Gmail and several other sites on the iPhone 4, and taught her how to use the phone.  Added her contacts manually since they couldn't be transferred from her old phone.  She seems happy.

*  Online at 7:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and work in the database adding content and source from Find A Grave using MyHeritage record matches.  Confirmed 23 more, 764 left to do.  Sources at 48,054.

*  Looked for and found the Voss bygdeboker online, and wrote about it in I Found the Voss (Norway) Bygdeb√łker (Farm Book) Online!

*  Lots of trouble with the computer today - slow, email sluggish, web sluggish.  Rebooted this morning, then after noon, by the time I get to evening and do research it works fine.  Strange.

*  WikiTree upload worked, so went and checked it out.  I still need to link Shubael's children to him and Hannah Wilson, but other than that it looks pretty good.

*  Searched for Auble data in Chicago and then on GenealogyBank - didn't find what I hoped to find.  Did get Georgia's obituary.

*  Researched and wrote RootsTech 2014 Schedule is Available - 238 Sessions.  Worked in the RootsTech app a bit.

*  Worked in the database on Elizabeths with no birth date and no surname (had like 24 on the list), found some of them, and solved several maiden name problems - added content and sources when possible.  

*  Added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.

20 days until Christmas now, and less than that for shopping.  Woke up to rain again, and cold.  I've been cold all day - the house thermostat is at 72F but it feels 65 all the time.  Wore my jacket part of the day.
