My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 1 and 2 May 2016

Sunday was a lost genealogy day, and Monday was a full one.  I missed having Mondays With Myrt but I did some useful things.

1)  Sunday, 1 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs on my tablet while watching TV, then off to church at 9:30 a.m.  We stopped at Barbara's on the way home, and got home at 12:30 p.m.

*  Did the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts before going in to watch the Padres game at 1:45 p.m. Had a doze too, read the paper, and then used the tablet to catch up on reading.  Padres lost to Dodgers 1-0, so now 9-16.

*  We left at 3 p.m. for the Crossman party.  Had a good time.  Talked genealogy with several folks.  Stopped at In 'n' Out for dinner, and home by 7:30 p.m.  Read blogs. Noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 24 to 30 April 2016 and Added or Updated Databases at - Week of 24 to 30 April 2016 posted.

*  Went in at 8 p.m. to watch the two WDYTYA? episodes.  Both of them were pretty good.  Online afterward to read, but didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was 2.5 hours.

2)  Monday, 2 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then transcribed the will and wrote Amanuensis Monday - Post 318: 1771 Will of Timothy Hamant (1699-1774).

*  Updated the Pennsylvania presentation and the handout.  Noted that Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 24 to 30 April 2016 posted.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked email, and worked on the Auble folks some more.  Wrote Mining Hints by Specific Record Collection - Updated.  Took a nap.

*  Online at 4:15 p.m. to create an Auble GEDCOM, then uploaded it as a new Ancestry tree.  The hints bloomed immediately!  

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to eat dinner, and watch TV.  Back online at 6 p.m. to work through some of the Hints on the new tree - found lots of records and added to the database.

*  Went in at 7:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and read my book.  Padres won 2-1 over Rockies, so now 10-16.  Our pitching has given up only one run in each of the last 4 games.

*  Online at 10:15 p.m. to check Facebook, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
