My Geneaholic Wednesday - 18 June 2014

I knew this would be a busy day with no time for any research.  I was right, but not gor the reasons I thought!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Randy's 26th Birthday -- Post 312 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and then CGSSD Meeting on Saturday, 21 June Features Jamie Mayhew and set it for late morning.

*  Printed off the 10 or so CVGS SOPs for the noon meeting.  Left at 9:45 a.m. for the library and the CVGS computer group meeting.  Only 5 of us.  I spent over an hour with beginner Sally who wanted help getting started on her husband's line.  I found two more generations for her, saved records to my Ancestry shoebox, and said I would sent them to her.  

*  Left at 11:30 a.m. for lunch at McDonalds, and back for the ByLaws meeting at 12 noon.  That went well, even some laughs, and I was home just after 2 p.m.

*  Read, then transcribed more from the murder trial and wrote The 1858 Murder Trial of Mortimer Seaver - Post 7: Testimony From 11 Witnesses.

*  Went to Ancestry and downloaded the shoebox items and more searching.  Sent her a series of emails with them attached.  Looked at the FS Family Tree and there they were, so copied some of the screens to Evernote and made a fan chart.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, and put out the trash.  Online at 6 p.m. to read, answer some email, check Facebook and Google+, etc.  Went in at 6:45 p.m. to see the Tony Gwynn tribute on TV.

*  Padres game came on, I read the paper, then my book, and the Pads came from behind to beat the Mariners 2-1 in the bottom of the 8th.  Now 30-42.  Still in 4th place.

*  Online at 10 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
