My Genealogy Wednesday and Thursday - 29-30 March 2017

The tale of two essentially lost and the second a decent genealogy day.

1)  Wednesday, 29 March:

*  Got all of 3 or 4 hours of sleep in short bursts due to fever and toothache.  Woke up with my mouth hurting and swollen at the root of tooth #30. Took some Aeve which helped.  Dropped Linda off, home to read email and blogs, and picked her up.

*  Home at 9:10 a.m. to call the dentist, and got a 9:30 appointment.  She looked at it and said I needed a Root Canal.  Down a block to the RC dentist, and he did it.  Went to Ralph's for a prescription.

*  Home by 1 p.m. without lunch, and missed the CVGS meeting at noon.  Took my medicine and tried to nap.  Failed.  Online to note that 2012 Legacy Cruise Photos: Part 1 -- Post 457 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted, then wrote First Take on AncestryDNA Genetic Communities.

*  Had a pudding and some grapes, then tried to take another nap, which failed.  Checked Facebook and added to the Best Of post.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV and dozed off for 30 minutes.  Felt better.  We had dinner and I read the paper and did dishes and put the trash out.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, write the Treasure Chest post, and didn't do much else.  Didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was maybe 4.0 hours.

2)  Thursday, 30 March:

*  Got 9 hours of good sleep, and awoke at 6:30 a.m. feeling much better.  The root canal and meds seem to be doing their job.  Dropped Linda off, home for breakfast and to read email and blogs, then picked her up.

*  Home by 9:15 a.m. to add to the Best Of post, answer email and note that 1749 Marriage Record of Johan Ernst Defuh and Maritgen Keller - Treasure Chest Thursday Post #358 posted.  Wrote Family History Labs Survey - Your Help is Needed.

*  Worked a bit in my Ancestry Tree, and found that Find A Grave had a burial for Sarah Auble!  A new record for me.  Modified my Ancestry Trees to reflect it.  Requested a photo on Find A Grave.

*  Took a 30 minute nap, then had lunch, and online at 1 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and work on Seavers in the News -- Albert E. Seaver Dies in San Antonio, Texas.  Did some searching on Ancestry for the family and added persons, content and sources to the database.  Checked Facebook.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, read the paper, and watch TV, then washed dishes.

*  Online at 6:45 p.m. to read, then researched and wrote the 52 Ancestors post.  Answered email, and wrote this post.  Genealogy this day was 9.5 hours.
