My Geneaholic Monday - 10 April 2014

It was a pretty good genealogy day, since there were no local sports on TV.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 209: 1789 Birth Record for Hannah Sawtell in Brookline, N.H. Town Records and Dear Randy: Can I Add a Source to my Software Program From FamilySearch Family Tree Sources? - Post 2: Legacy Family Tree and set it for later in the morning.

*  Watched the DearMYRTLE video from RootsTech about Hangouts on air, and edited the New England talk one more time.  Saved it, put it in Dropbox and got it saved on the laptop.  

*  worked on the laptop to get Google Drive, copy and Dropbox synced.  Turns out I was signed out of Google Drive.  I was adding files on the desktop but they weren't syncing.  Copy wasn't syncing either, so I signed into that on the desktop and copied more files into it and that synced.  

*  Then it was trying to figure out why the tablet wouldn't provide cell service to the laptop yesterday.  Finally figured out that I had to turn off wifi on the tablet and turn on the cell service and the laptop was able to communicate through the tablet to the Internet.  Whew!  I knew it must be something I had no clue about.

*  Answered some email, checked Facebook, and researched and wrote Searching From Within My Ancestry Member Tree, and left at 5 p.m. to meet Yvette and Ruth.

*  Got to the Dragon hole-in-the-wall that Ruth decided on at 5:30, met Yvette there and Ruth was 5 minutes late.  The dinner was OK but quick, I don't get Chinese very often with Linda's allergies. We talked a lot (well, Ruth and Yvette did, I listened.

*  We left at 6:30 p.m. and I got to the FamilySearch Library at 6:40 p.m. and found a periodical article I wanted to capture and took 30 images of it with my phone.  They came and we sat in on Margaret's class on Military records.  We surprised her with our presence.  

*  I left early at 7:45 p.m. and was home just after 8.  Read email and blogs, then worked in the database adding content and sources for the Marley and Kemp families.  Found a great naturalization record for James A. Kemp in 1908.

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
