My Genealogy Weekend - 23-24 September 2017

It was a fairly full genealogy weekend as my weekends go.

1)  Saturday, 23 September:

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up and home by 9:15 a.m.  Packed up the laptop and off to the SDGS RootsMagic Users Group meeting at the FamilySearch Library in Mission Valley.  We had 12 there, including several visitors and a staff member.

*  Left at 12 noon for Santee, eating my Fritos on the way.  got to the library by 12:30 p.m. and got set up for my talk at 1 p.m.  The librarian was very friendly and helpful, and I had 25 attendees.  That's the best in awhile.  Lots of good questions afterwards.

*  Got home by 3:15 p.m., napped in the recliner, and we left at 4 p.m. for In 'n' Out for dinner, then the trolley to Petco for the Padres game.

*  Missed the first half inning, and Padres won 5-0 over Rockies.  Home by 10 p.m. to read, but didn't journal.  Noted that Surname Saturday - BILLIOU (France to colonial New York) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Carrie Ann's Meme posted.  Genealogy this day was 6.0 hours.

2)  Sunday, 24 September:

*  Read email and blogs while watching Meet the Depressed, and off to church at 9:35.  Home by 11:30, so wrote Family Tree Maker 2017 News - Last Chance for Upgrade Pricing, and wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts for later.

*  Went in at 12:30 p.m. to eat lunch, had a short recliner nap, and watched the Chargers game.  Theyl ost 24-10 to KC, so now 0-3.  Also watched bits of the Padres game, and they lost 8-4 to the Rockies.  So Pads are 70-86, with 6 to go.  

*  Online at 4:45 p.m. to note that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 17 to 23 September 2017 posted.  Started transcribing the probate record for Monday. 

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, watched TV news, watered the front plants, and online at 6:15 p.m. to finish the transcription and write the Amanuensis post.  TreeShared with the AMT.

*  Resolved over 350 Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources to my RootsMagic database.  Whew.  

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
