My Genealogy Saturday - 12 July 2014

This was not an all genealogy day, far from it.  But I did finish some things and got a great genealogy gift from a friend.

*  Read email and blogs.  Chris sent the Smith probate record he found in Nebraska!!!  Noted that  Surname Saturday - BLOOMFIELD (England > colonial Massachusetts > New Jersey) posted.

*  Packed up and left at 9 a.m.   Got to the SDGS meeting at 9:25 a.m. and got set up.  Talked to Paul, Del, Reuben and Dave a bit.  Meeting started on time, and I did the first talk on the FamilySearch Family Tree better than any of my rehearsals...right at 60 minutes!  Then there was the ice cream - I was the first in line.  Talked to several folks about Family Tree and RootsMagic, then back into the hall and did the New England Research talk in about 50 minutes.  Tore my stuff down and left at about 12:45 p.m. for went to Bonita.

*  Got to Bonita library for the CVGS workshop at 1:15 p.m., Susi was talking about New York research.  She asked me to come up and do more on it, and I did until about 1:50 p.m., when the questions gave out and Ken got plugged in to do his Family Tree Maker workshop.  I sat in the back and read email and blogs and posted to Facebook.

*  Left at 3:10 and home by 3:30 p.m. sat in my recliner and napped for over an hour, I was tired and my throat was sore.  We ate dinner and watched TV.

*  Went online and noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Do Some Semi-Random Research posted.  Checked Facebook, answered email, and read blogs.  Looked through the Eastham notebook to see if I can find where I found some Dill and Horton data.

*  Went in at 7:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, watered the front lawn and plants, and read the newspaper, then my Lincoln Lawyer book, and washed dishes.  Dodgers scored in the bottom of the 9th to win 1-0.  Drat, another great pitching performance wasted and major offensive failure for Pads.  Now 41-53.  

*  Online at 10 p.m. to read, check Facebook and write this post.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
