My Genealogy Tuesday and Wednesday - 27 and 28 June 2017

These were not big genealogy days because of life and Padres, but they were fairly productive.  It was warm on Tuesday (probably 85-90F here) but cooler today (75 to 80F at most).

1)  Tuesday, 27 June 2017

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up at 9 a.m. and we went to Ralph's for groceries.  Home by 9:40 a.m.

*  Noted that Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1870 U.S. Census Record for John C. Paul household in San Francisco, California posted.  Wrote Dear Randy: How Do I Create a GEDCOM File for Part of My RootsMagic Tree? and set it for later.

*  Took a nap, had lunch, and online at 12:45 p.m.  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes -- 27 June 2017 and set it for later.  Added to the Best Of post.  Checked Facebook.  Worked in Ancestry on folks from the RootsMagic database, adding content and sources.  

*  Wrote the Wordless post for Wednesday.  Answered email.  

*  We left at 5 p.m. for the trolley, ate at Tin Fish and in Petco Park by 6:30 p.m.  Padres lost 3-0 to Braves, so now 31-46 on the season.  We are 5-5 when in attendance.  Home by 10:45 p.m. Did not journal or even check email or blogs.  Genealogy this day was 7.5 hours.

2)  Wednesday, 28 June 2017

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up at 9 and home by 9:15 a.m.

*  Noted that Mount San Jacinto in January 2013, Part 2 -- Post 470 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted, added to the Best Of post, and saw that RootsMagic had updated their program.  

*  Downloaded RM 7.5, then wrote a blog post about it - GREAT NEWS: RootsMagic Now Has Ancestry TreeShare and WebHints Activated as it worked to upload my RootsMagic database.

*  Collected the food, Linda, and our pictures and went off at 10:40 to the CVGS picnic at the Brock's house.  It was great fun.  Good food, good friends.  The program was to tell about your oldest photograph or picture - at least 20 attendees participated.  I did my Isaac Seaver Union Case, Linda did her 1906 earthquake picture from the wall.   We were home after 2 p.m.

*  Online to read, add to the Best Of post, and wrote Looking at My New RootsMagic Upload Ancestry Member Tree and Source Citations.  

*  Checked Facebook and Twitter, answered email, and checked out WebHints a bit.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to eat dinner, watch TV news and put out the trash.  Online at 6:10 p.m. to read, wrote the Treasure Chest post, and looked more at WebHints.

*  Went in at 7:05 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, wash the dishes, and read my book.  Padres beat the Braves 7-4 so now 32-46 on the season.  

*  Online at 10:10 p.m. to read, and write this post.  Genealogy this day was 9.5 hours.
