My Geneaholic Tuesday - 11 November 2014

This was Veterans Day, and I stayed home and did some genealogy work.  Feel like I wasted a lot of time, though.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that My World War I Veteran - Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976) posted and wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Elizabeth Spangler (1796-1863) in Crawford County, Pennsylvania.

*  Got the cruise paperwork squared away and printed out.  Whew!  Read and answered email.  Did 46 more 1930 US Census entries.  

*  Wrote Progress in Adding Census Records to My Ancestry Member Tree and RootsMagic Database.  Went off at 3:45 p.m. for a walk to the bridge and back - only 1.4 miles, 2,800 steps, but I was huffing and puffing when I got home.

*  Added a bunch of Twitter follows.  Looked for Seavers in Historical Obituaries on GenealogyBank.  found some, and did a few transcripts.  Found a bunch that are not in my database...tried to find some but not much luck - the black hole between 1940 and 1980.  

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner and wash the dishes.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, answer email, work in the Newby tree a bit, then more Seaver obits and some Find A Grave entries too.  

*  Went in and watched Finding Your Roots at 8 p.m. - pretty good, interesting the Indian records!  They made a big deal about Sally field descended from William Bradford.  

*  Online at 9 p.m. to mess around with Seaver obits some more, chased several rabbit trails without much success.  

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
