My Geneaholic Friday - 10 October 2014

This was a stay-at-home day also.  I'm not sure i'm ready for the talks on Saturday.  Now I have a scratchy throat.

*  Read email and blogs, then noted that 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 41: #48 Henry Carringer (1800-1879) posted.  Wrote New Family History Series on CNN - "Roots, Our Journeys Home" and set it for later.  Gort the news that Audrey doesn't need surgery - good!  She called to tell me.

*  Looked in Google Books for Henry Carringer and found an article about John and Eliza (Carringer) Robinson.  Added content and sources to that family, and tried to extend the family a bit since they are cousins.  Finally wrote "Forrest Gump Principle of Genealogical Research" Strikes Again...

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday and SNGF posts, and was about to go in for dinner when the Mocavo census news came down - so I wrote Major News - Offers U.S. Census Images.

*  Went in for dinner, to watch the baseball game, water the front yard, read the paper, and wash the dishes while Linda did her email.  Printed off the Bingo pages.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, then participate in the GenChat on Twitter using something that Jen mentioned that I can't recall now.  Drat.  GenChat was about town records.  Afterwards, I went on facebook and deleted most of my comments that were meaningless to a Facebook reader.

*  Went in to watch some of the ball game, ended in the 10th with Royals winning 8-6.

*  Online at 9:15 p.m. to read, add some folks and sources to James line, and then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
