My Genealogy Friday and Saturday - 21-22 October 2016

You, know, Christmas is only 9 weeks away now?

1)  Friday, 21 October 2016:

*  Dropped Linda, read email and blogs, picked her up, and home for awhile, then off at 10:15 a.m. for her therapy appointment.  She got exercises to do.  Noted that 52 Ancestors - Week 147: #200 Johann Balthazar Spengler (1706-1770) posted and wrote New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, 21 October 2016.

*  Added slides to the FHDay presentation, saved everything, and put in Dropbox and on USB drive.  Got laptop out and made sure it would open.

*  Had lunch, had my nap, and wrote Mining Hints by Specific Record Collection.  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and added some content and sources from the database.

*  We left at 5:30 p.m. for dinner at Marie Callenders with Laurie and Tiger D.  Great to see her again and nice to meet him.  Home by 8 p.m. to watch the Aztecs game the rest of the evening.  Read email and blogs on the tablet, so didn't journal.  Genealogy on Friday was 7.0 hours.

2)  Saturday, 22 October 2016:

*  Dropped Linda, read email and blogs, picked her up, noted that Surname Saturday - TUCKER (England to colonial New England) posted, and we left at 9:45 a.m. for the Chula Vista Library for the Family History Day.

*  Went in at 10 a.m., got set up for my Keynote, started about 10:35 a.m. and done by 11:15 a.m.  We went and had a snack, then attended Ceasar's talk about Mayor Salas - pretty good job with some tough records.  We left at 1:30 p.m. and went to Dollar Tree to shop, and home by 2:30 p.m.  I was tired and took a nasp.

*  Online at 3:30 p.m., noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Childhood Interest in Family and Genealogy posted, read emails and checked Facebook. 

*  Went in at 4:30 p.m. to watch football, then the baseball game, watered the front plants, read the paper ate dinner, and read my Goodwin book.  Cubs won 5-0.  

*  Online at 8 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and write the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts since we have party and dinner plans on Sunday.  Worked a bit in FamilySearch Family Tree matching profiles.  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
