My Geneaholic Weekend - 3 and 4 May 2014

It was not a big genealogy weekend for me - the normal blogging and the Padres games, plus church.

1)  Saturday, 3 May:

*  Read email and blogs in a hurry, and off to Marie Callender's for breakfast with my Men's Bible Study.  Always good there, it seems.

*  Home by 9:45 a.m. to read, note that Surname Saturday -- MORGAN (Wales > New Amsterdam > New Jersey), and pack up my laptop.

*  Left for Bonita library at 11:15 a.m. for the CVGS meeting, couldn't set up in the room until 12 noon due to previous meeting.  Got started about 12:10 p.m., and did my RootsMagic 6 Workshop #3 to about 15 attendees.  Some good questions, hopefully some good answers!

*  Got home by 3 p.m., packed up the takealong bag, and we were off to the trolley station at 3:15.  Got to the Tin Fish by 4 p.m., had fish and chips, and into Petco around 5 p.m.  Padres lost 4-3 to the D-backs, and it wasn't that close, 4-0 in the 9th and we had winning run on base at the end.  A really boring game until the last inning.

*  Got the 9 p.m. trolley, so home by 9:45 p.m.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - How Many Cousins Do You Know You Have? posted.  Read everything, checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and was done.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.  

2)  Sunday, 4 May 2014:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best Of post.

*  We went off to church, and stayed for the lunch.  

*  Home at 12:30 p.m. to read, note that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 27 April to 3 May 2014 posted.  Started moving useful files form Downloads to file folders.  

*  Went in at 1:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and took a nap.  Pads won 4-3 in the bottom of the 9th.  Pads now 14-18, pitching OK, hitting weakly.  

*  Online at 4 p.m. to read, print off Padres tickets, and move more files around.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner and watch TV news.  Went out at 5:30 to mow the front lawn and water.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, answer email, work in the database a bit on Devier Smith, transcribe a deed and write the Amanuensis Monday post, and then worked in the database adding content.  Got into the Gif surnames.  Now 51,470 sources.

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
