My Genealogy Friday - 24 January 2014

I did genealogy almost all day long, finished two tasks, and even took a walk for the second day in a row!

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that 52 Ancestors Friday: Abbey Ardelle "Della" (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944) posted.  Wrote James Duffy's Paperless Filing System for Mac and set it for later.

*  Worked in email for awhile, got the CVGS newsletter sent to the societies, then worked on the presentation for Saturday.  Printed off 40 copies.

*  Had lunch, and took my walk over to the new fence and bridge.  Talked to the construction guys at Naples St.  It's about 1/3 done.  

*  Home by 1 p.m. to read, then found the Messenger report, downloaded it and sent it to Kathleen.  She was thrilled!  Did more email.

*  Wrote Finding Marriage Gems in Historical Newspapers - GenealogyBank Has a "Marriages" Sub-Category.  Had fun doing this and finding more about them.  Looked for more obits on GenealogyBank and data on Find A Grave.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to read the paper, watch TV, take a nap and eat dinner, then washed dishes.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to write the Surname Saturday post, then worked in the database adding content and osurces for the Far... persons.  Not done with them yet.  Solved some research problems, including a fairly close cousin.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Got the presentation into the laptop via Dropbox.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
