My Geneaholic Day - 22 October 2013

This was not much of a writing or research day, but I did do some genealogy work.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Aunt Marion and Aunt Gerry Visit in 1978 -- Post 330 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and researched and wrote Searching for Persons and Cemeteries on BillionGraves and set it for later.

*  Checked the San Diego Central Library catalog for archival items - found some.  Left at 11 a.m. for lunch at McDonalds and then to the parking garage for the carpool to the San Diego Central Library.  

*  We got there at 12 noon, staked out a table, and I had Kate the librarian bring out the Great Registers for San Diego and found Henry A. Carringer in 1888.  Looked in 1908 also, but it was only for other cities in the county, not San Diego City.  She said they didn't have them.  Drat.  So she brought out several more items, including an 1897 booklet about the merits of San Diego, and 1910, 1920 and 1930 newspaper clippings with Marston Company advertisements.  I also perused some of the SDGS booklets of transcriptions of vital records.  Also met rick Crawford and explained my San Diego family connection.

*  We left at 3 p.m. and I was home by 3:45 p.m. Read, then dozed off for 10 minutes, and we left at 4:40 p.m. for LaMaze and my birthday dinner.  I had prime rib, baked potato and veggies.  Came home to watch World Series Game 2, which the Royals won 7-2.  

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, answer email, check Facebook, and then added transcriptions and sources for the amanuensis Monday and Treasure Chest Thursday posts where I didn't have them in my database.  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
