My Genealogy Weekend - 29-30 July 2017

This was not a typical July genealogy weekend.

1)  Saturday, 29 July:

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up at 9:10 and we visited Costco for the necessaries.  No chicken though.

*  Home by 10 a.m. to read, note that Surname Saturday -- BOLLES (England to colonial New England) posted and write the SNGF post.

*  Rested my eyes for 30 minutes, then had lunch and we left for the CVGS program at 12:15 p.m. at the library.  Got there, enjoyed the presentation, and home by 3:30 p.m.

*  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your Genea-Bucket List posted.

*  We left before 4 p.m. to eat at El Pollo Loco, on the trolley at 4:50 and in Petco Park by 5:20 p.m.  Padres game started at 5:40 against the Pirates.   Pads won 4-2 to go to 47-57, and we are now 6-7 when in attendance.  Watched the Fireworks show.  

*  Home by 10 p.m. to read, check Facebook, add to the Best Of post and answer email.    Genealogy this day was maybe 4.5 hours.

2)  Sunday, 30 July:

*  Read email and blogs while watching Meet the Depressed, then off to church at 9:30.  Home by 11:15 to read, and wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts.  Ate lunch, added to the new Best Of post.  Noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 23 to 29 July 2017 posted.

*  Went in at 1:30 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, take a nap in the recliner.  Pads lost 7-1 to Pirates, so now 47-58 on the season.  Better than I had hoped for at this point, actually.  

*  Game over at 4, took Linda to swim at Barbara's, home to transcribe the deed, ate dinner, picked Linda up, and home after 6 p.m.

*  Noted that Added or Updated Databases - Week of 23 to 29 July 2017 posted, and wrote the Amanuensis post.  

*  Started in on the Hints from the Big Tree on Ancestry, adding content and sources to RootsMagic for the recently added Hildreth persons.  Got through about 150 Hints.  Lots more to do.  Need to do this in smaller segments - add 40 people, then get their Hints.  Gotta keep up with the progress on all fronts.

*  Checked Facebook, answered email, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
