My Genealogy Tuesday - 3 October 2017

I finally got another task finished, at least until I did more research!  Thi was an all-genealogy day except for the usual interruptions.

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up, and we went to the grocery store.  Home by 9:40 a.m. to read, note that Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1916 Voter Registration for Paul and Edna Schaffner in San Francisco posted, and updated Added or Updated Record Collections on MyHeritage - August and September 2017 and set it for later.  Added to the Best Of post too.

*  Sleepy so took my nap early.  Up at noon to eat lunch, then online to read, answer email, and then researched and wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 3 October 2017.  

*  Worked in AncestryDNA a bit, then revised the presentation and handout for the SDGS Genealogy Day on 21 October.  Decided I'd better see if there have been any new records for the McKnew/Whittle/Morley folks and actually found a death record for Rachel (Morley) Whittle Spencer in 1861 through an Ancestry Photo Hint!  I added the record to the database, and need to update the presentation again.  

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook, then worked some in FamilySearch Family Tree matching RootsMagic persons.  Found some new data and added it to the database with sources.  

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to eat dinner, and we watched the Yankees/Twins game, I read the paper, and washed dishes.  

*  Came in at 7 p.m. to read email and blogs, then wrote the Wordless Wednesday post.  Went back to the TV at 8 p.m. to watch Finding Your Roots.  Interesting footage and stories, and a fantastic ending, although they didn't say what the magnitude of the DNA match was.

*  Watched end of the baseball game, then online to write this post, add to the Best Of post, and I will TreeShare the database.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
