My Geneaholic Thursday - 18 February 2016

Well, I did it again - down a research rabbit hole but not rewarding...yet!

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of and RootsTech posts, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday Post 301: 1750 Birth Record of Abigail Pierce (1750-1776).

*  Explored Newspapers on Findmypast and wrote Searching Newspaper Records on Findmypast and set it for later.

*  Wrote up the SDGS presentation and sent it to Bill for the newsletter.  Had lunch, watched Ashley's video, and checked out the books on MyHeritage.  Answered email.  Took my nap.

*  Online at 2:30 p.m. to research and write Does Ancestry Member Tree Index "Prune" Trees?  Checked Facebook and Twitter.

*  Went in at 5:20 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner and read the paper.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read email and blogs, then worked on Ancestry Hints- got 68 resolved.  Worked on the 52 Ancestors biography, and thought I should get a start on the next one, Moses Smith.  Searched for land records in Norfolk and Suffolk counties, and got tangled up.  There are deeds over 80 years, and probably 3 different Moses Smiths in the same area.  Needs more work.  Fun to switch back and forth from Ancestry to FamilySearch to AmericanAncestors to Google Books.  

*  Added to the Best Of post and checked Facebook, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
