Do you ever want to just take the day off and do something fun? I did, but I didn't...not much anyway, until the end.
* Read email and blogs, noted that My Revolutionary War Soldiers posted, and wrote 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 27: #34 Alpheus B. Smith (1802-1840).
* Answered email, checked Facebook, wondered what to do, and we got invited to lunch with Ruthie at her care facility. We left at 11:45 a.m. and had hamburgers and ice cream on the patio - very pleasant. Then visited with Nina and Ruth - Ruth told us about her parents and cousins lost in the holocaust.
* Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, wrote Contribute to the Family History Online International Research Use Survey.
* Went in at 3:30 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper and take a nap. We went to Lolita's at 5 p.m., home by 5:45 p.m., and watched the rest of the fame. We won 2-0 over giants, 5 in a row, now 39-46.
* Online at 6 p.m. to read, forgot to work on the CVGS newsletter, worked in MyHeritage Record Matches to clean up SSDI and Texas Birth Index records. Had most of the latter already. Then worked on some loose Seaver ends trying to find parents in census records. Found several useful obits on GenealogyBank and added them to the database. Have 52,900 sources.
* 10 p.m. rolled around quickly, missed the fireworks (heard them), added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post. Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.
