My Geneaholic Friday - 28 November 2014

One more getup and we go to L.a. in the morning.  Geneaholic will be dark for the next week.  Geneamusings will be on autopilot.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 48: #55, Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux (1815-1883) posted.  

*  Wrote the two Surname Saturday posts, and then researched and wrote The Ultimate Challenge - Building a Family Tree From Sources - Post 4: Westfall Family.

*  Left at 1:15 p.m. for Sears to get a new battery for my watch.  Stopped and got a birthday card at CVS on the way home.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m. to read, answer emails, add to the Best Of post, write the SNGF post, print out some Genea-Musings blog posts on elusive ancestors and DNA for the cruise.  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, read the paper, watch TV news, water the front yard, and wash dishes.  Packed for the trip.  Packed the genealogy bag also with everything I need - electronics, passports, papers, etc.  

*  Online at 6:20, Imported GEDCOM file into Legacy so I could export an Ancestry narrative report.  RM won't do it right.  Frustrating, gotta write about that later.

*  Worked on the CVGS Newsletter - got it finished, sent off for proofreading, fix it in a week.

*  Checked Facebook, read blogs, answered more email, made a map for Saturday, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
