My Semi-Genealogy Monday - 13 March 2017

This was a day of waiting and waiting and frustration, but then got some decent work in at the end.

*  Read email before I left at 7 a.m. for jury duty in Chula Vista.  got there, got in line, saw Karin and we went in together at 7:30, and sat together in the jury lounge, and caught up on family.  We saw David also, and talked to him too.  They finally called 40 or so jurists for a 4 week trial, and we weren't called.  They released us at 11:15 a.m.  I was home by 11:45.

*  Read blogs, added to the Best Of post, had lunch and tried to nap.  The Sears repair guy was supposed to come between 1 and 5 p.m.  Waited all day, they finally called at 4:50 and said he was on the way.

*  Noted that Amanuensis Monday -- Probate Records of Thomas Dill (1708-1761) Estate in Barnstable County, Massachusetts - Part 3 and Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 5 to 11 March 2017 posted, and wrote Findmypast Grant Five Days of Free Access To All Irish Records In Celebration of St. Patrick's Day 2017.

*  Tried to nap again, but failed.  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, answered email.  Tried to nap at 3 p.m. and Linda called me in.  Online at 4 p.m., and checked Facebook some more.

*  Went out at 4:50 p.m. to wait for the repair guy, and pulled weeds and talked to the neighbor.  He came at 5:10 p.m. and got the dryer open, diagnosed the program as the cable that tumbles the tub, and he didn't have the part needed, so he ordered it.  It will come on 23 March.  Grrr.

*  Went in for dinner at 6 p.m., and the potatoes burned, but the corned beef was great.  Read the paper, watched TV and did dishes.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, then wrote the Tuesday post, and worked in FamilySearch Family Tree matching Seavers and standardizing places.  

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 6.0 hours.
