My Geneaholic Friday - 11 July 2014

I think I'm ready for the two talks on Saturday - one's new, one's seasoned.  The problem is time limits, I really need 60 minutes for each of them.

*  Read email and blogs, then noted that 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 28: #35, Elizabeth Horton (Dill) Smith (1791-1869) posted and wrote Seavers in the News - James T. Seaver, Master of a Civil War Vessel - Post 2 and set it for later.

*  Added 100 people to my Watch list on FamilySearch Family Tree - already got an email!

*  Answered email and added to the Best Of post.  Made a GEDCOM in RootsMagic to import to update the linked tree in FTM but messed everything up.  Unlinked the AMT from FTM and now can't do the merge I wanted to do.  Oh well.  Wasted an hour or more.

*  Wrote Why Do I Have Two Ancestry Member Trees?   Wrote the Surname Saturday post for Saturday.  Downloaded all of the available state research guides from Ancestry.  Practiced the Family Tree talk again - right at 60 minutes.  Got the presentation files on the laptop.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to eat dinner, watch TV news, and back online at 6:15 to write the SNGF post for Saturday.

*  Went in at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper and finished my C.J. Box book.  The guy is great.  Wonder if the trucker in "The Highway" will be a recurring character?  Read on the phone, played in Flipboard some also.  Pads beat the Dodgers 6-3, so now 41-52.

*  Online at 10:40 p.m. to write this post, check Facebook, and I'm done.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
