*  Finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 2 to 8 April 2017 post, and started the new post.  Wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch database posts - Ancestry had no new databases on their site at the time.

*  Went in at 1:30 p.m. to eat lunch, watch the Padres game, read the paper, and took a nap, Padres lost to Giants 5-3, so now 3-4 on the season.

2)  Monday, 10 April 2017:
