My Genealogy Days - 23 and 24 July 2014

I just couldn't journal last night due to a migraine headache that knocked me out for some reason. I made up for it today...

1)  Wednesday, 23 July 2014 (a warm and muggy day):

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote A Four-Generation Picture -- Post 317 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and then GSNOCC Seminar with Hank Jones on Saturday, 9 August and set it for later.

*  Packed up and headed off to the FamilySearch Library at 9:40 a.m.  got there right at 10, the other CVGS folks came, and I took over 140 photos of page images from several books on the shelf to help me add source citations to persons in my tree.  Sat in for a little while on Kitty Taylor's "Brick Walls" group.

*  We left at 1 p.m. and headed for Marie Callender's in Chula Vista.  There were 13 of us and we talked and laughed.  I had a chocolate satin pie slice.  Yum!  

*  Home by 2:45 p.m. with a headache, but managed to research and write Find Relatives on the BYU-EDU Relative Finder Website.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Padres game, eat dinner, read the paper, and water the front lawn.  The migraine kicked in full force, and I spent the last half of the game in my recliner with a wet wash cloth over my eyes listening to the game.  Pads won 8-3 over the Cubs.  Went into the back bedroom and laid down with the wash cloth, and finally to bed at 10 p.m. without checking email or anything.

It was a good day up until 6 p.m.  Genealogy this day was 7.5 hours.

2)  Thursday, 24 July 2014:

*  Read email and blogs, (lots to read!), then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 224: 1891 Census of Canada for Alexander Sovereen Household.

*  Putzed around on WikiTree and Geni searching for my link to Thomas Jefferson, and added some discussion items.  I know that the FSFT is wrong - so are WikiTree and Geni, at least down my line past Thomas Hazard.

*  Answered email and wrote up the Q&A responses for Brittni.  Edited How Should Genealogy Societies Help Beginners? and posted it.

*  Worked on adding media and sources from the "To be filed" file of Massachusetts town records.  Got about 25 media items added. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the Padres game, eat dinner, read the paper and my Michael connelly book, and the Pads beat the Cubs 13-3.  Now 45-56.

*  Online at 8:45 p.m. to read, then added life stories and some Stories to the FamilySearch Family Tree.  Lots more to do!

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
