My Geneaholic Thursday - 11 September 2014

Nothing unusual happened on this September 11, the 13th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks.  It was also the 127th wedding anniversary of my great-grandparents, Henry Austin Carringer and Della Smith, and the 77th wedding anniversary of my wife's parents, Lee S. Leland and Edna Schaffner.
I stayed home all day with my shirt off and tried to stay cool, but failed.  didn't doze off, though!

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 231: Birth Records for Children of Nathan and Abigail (Knowlton) Gates in Gardner, Mass.

*  Added a bunch of content and sources to the database from the Massachusetts Mason Cards, great resource!  Answered email and added to the Best Of post.  Made some blog comments too.

*  Wrote Remembering 9-11 - 13 Years After, and then Mining the Massachusetts, Mason Membership Cards Collection on

*  Wrote five posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog.

*  Went in at 5:45 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, water the front yard, and try to deal with the washing machine problem.  Fail - it's full of water and won't do anything.  Drat.  We had to twist the water out of the big towels. They still required two dryer cycles.

*  Online at 6;30 p.m. to read, check Facebook, then wrote the 52 Ancestor post for Friday.  Had it mostly done last week.  Then worked in in the database on Hat to Haw surnames.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 12.0 hours.
