My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 3 and 4 August 2014

The weather stayed warm - 85-90F and, hair shirts, shorts are the dress code today.

1) Sunday, 3 August 2014

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 27 July to 2 August 2014 post.

*  Off to church at 9:30 a.m., and home by 11:30 a.m.  Mouse wasn't working well, so went to Best Buy and got a wireless mouse.  Read email and blogs quickly!

*  Went in at 1:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and read my book.  We ate dinner in the 10th inning, Pads won 4-3 over Braves.  Now 51-60 on the year.

*  Went out and weeded the front planters - big job.  Still have to trim the roses.  We got some rain this day which made the soil damp.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then did the Amanuensis Monday transcription and post.  Finished up in Facebook, adding data for Gl-Go surnames using Ancestry.  

*  Genealogy this day was 4.5 hours.

2)  Monday, 4 August 2014:

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of blog, and noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post 229: 1869 Deed of Land in Taylor County, Iowa from Ranslow Smith to Harley U. Greenlee posted.

*  Joined the Mondays With Myrt HOA and shared a bit about the FS Family Tree Watch List, plus comments on other topics.  

*  Checked Facebook, Ancestry, FamilySearch, but couldn't think of a blog topic.  Finally got into GEDMatch again and eventually wrote My First Look at GEDMatch Autosomal DNA Analysis.

*  Worked on American Ancestors finding and downloading and renaming vital record pages for ancestors in the Whitney ancestry.  Got about 40.  Now need to add them to the media file.

*  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m., read the paper, watched TV, did the dishes.  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and write a post for Tuesday.

*  Spent two hours or so searching for ancestors of loose Seavers - found two, but not one more.  Added some new Seaver families with some sources.

*  Checked Facebook, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
