My Genealogy Thursday and Friday - 4 and 5 September 2014

Still not much research done, feel like i'm slacking off, but have to work the blog posts around the Padres games.

1)  Thursday, 4 September:  Happy birthday, brother Stan is 68 today!

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 230: 1851 Canada West Census Record for Mulford Putman Household.

*  Dorothy called at about 10 a.m. asking for help with her Danish ancestors.  I made some notes, and checked some sites, and then emailed her after an hour with information.  Put it all in Help Me CrowdSource Dorothy's Denmark Question - Updated - maybe someone else has better information for her.

*  Worked on the 52 Ancestors post for #43 for Friday.  Then worked on the week after - added some land sources and fixed the notes for #44.  

*  Worked on the CVGS newsletter, got it about 30% done.

*  We left at 3:50 p.m. for the trolley station, then to Tin Fish for dinner, and in Petco Park by 5:40 p.m. for the Padres game.  Concession stands closed on our side - had to go down to 208 to get my ice cream cone.  Pads lost 5-1 in a game that wasn't that close.  Pads can't hit...

*  Home by 10:15 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of and FGS posts, and didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was 7.5 hours.

2)  Friday, 5 September:  still no grandson born...wonder when?

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 36: #43 Rebecca (Hill) Rich (1790-1862) posted.

*  Updated the Danish post, and added to the Best Of and FGS posts.  Answered some email too.

*  Worked a bit in my FindMyPast family tree and wrote Family Trees on - Post 5: Search Results Are Improved, and Images Can Be Attached.

*  Wrote the two Saturday posts.

*  Worked more on the CVGS newsletter.  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m. and watched TV news, then out to cut rose bushes back and weed a bit.  Came in at 6:30 p.m. to find Padres game in 4th inning.  We lost to Colorado 3-0.  Pads still in a slump.  Drat.  No 66-74.

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, answer email, and work on the CVGS newsletter.  Got it about 90% done.  
*  Read, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
