My Geneaholic Tuesday - 28 October 2014

This was an all genealogy day until the evening - then World Series and Finding Your Roots.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Tuesday's Tip - NEHGS Subject Guides at the Learning Center and then New or Updated Collections at FamilySearch - 19-25 October 2014 and set it for later.  Tried to watch the NARA webinar but it was boring.

*  Edited the last three OASIS presentations and handouts, and made PDFs.  Put them in Dropbox for safe keeping.  Need to print the handouts on Friday or Saturday and get everything on the laptop by Sunday.

*  Wrote ISHFWE "Excellence in Writing" Competition Call for Entries and then NARA Virtual Genealogy Fair is FREE This Week - Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday - Updated and set it for later.

*  Worked on 1940 US Census entries, got the list down from 87 to 70, adding sources and content.  Did a Seaver search on Ancestry for the 1940 Census, and received 1715 matches.  Worked from the top of the list - added several generations in one family line adding content and sources.  My estimate is that I have about 25% of those Seaver folks in my database.  Sources at 56,169.

*  Went in to watch the World Series, eat dinner, read the paper, water the front yard, wash dishes, and finish my book.  I switched over to Finding Your Roots in the 8th inning when it was 10-0.  so Wednesday will be the finish.

*  Finding Your Roots was interesting - mostly for the records shown.  The "guests" were not very voluble tonight.

*  Online at 9:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, write the Wordless Wednesday post, and write this post.  genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
