My Genealogy Tuesday and Wednesday - 18-19 September 2018

I didn't journal last night because we got home from the Padres game at 11:30 p.m.  Then I tossed and turned for almost two hours before getting 5 hours of sleep.  

1)  Tuesday, 18 September:

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up, home by 9:15 a.m., noted that Treasure Chest Tuesday -- Lyle L. Carringer U.S. Marines Muster Roll Card - July 1918 posted, and added to the Best Of post.

*  Had lunch, messed around in Ancestry and RootsMagic a bit, then wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 18 September 2018.  Checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Wrote the Wordless post, and took another nap.  Worked some more in RootsMagic and Ancestry.

*  We left at 4:55 for the trolley, ate dinner at Tin Fish, and were in Petco Park by 6:30 p.m.  Padres lost to Giants 5-4.  So we are 8-12 when in attendance.  Home by 11:30 p.m.  Genealogy this day was 6.0 hours.

2)  Wednesday, 19 September:

*  Up at 10:15 a.m., gathered all the stuff, and off to the library for the mic check and test run of the "This is Your Ancestry" presentation.  Too long, and some pauses, need to practice it more.  I have 10 days.

*  Home by 1 p.m., had lunch, added to the Best Of post, answered email, and messed around in Ancestry and RootsMagic.  Took an hour nap.

*  Online at 3:45 to read, check Twitter and Facebook, and wrote the Treasure Chest post.  Finished the laundry.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m. watched TV news, and then the Padres game.  Read the paper, washed dishes, put out the trash, and started my new Sandford book.  Padres beat Giants 8-4, so now 61-92 on the season.  10 games to go, all in the division.

My Genealogy Monday - 17 September 2018

This was an all-genealogy day until the Padres game tonight.  Shoulda kept working, I guess.  Didn't sleep well again - reflux because I went to bed too early!  Crap. 

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up and home by 9 a.m.  Noted that Amanuensis Monday - 1755 Will of Jonathan Oatly (1689-1755) of South Kingstown, Rhode Island posted, answered email, added to the Best Of post, and wrote New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, 14 September 2018 (it came late on Sunday).

*  Worked on the two presentations - edited both and practiced the Cox one.  Edited the DNA syllabus too but didn't do the Cox syllabus.  Drat.  Took my nap.  

*  Had lunch.  Online to watch a webinar (trying to get my FTM money's worth!) and wrote   Monday Genea-Pourri - 17 September 2018.   Checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Answered a DNA contact on Ancestry and entered his line into the database.  Checked FSFT and matched folks and made both trees better.  Added to the Best Of post.

My Long Semi-Genealogy Weekend - Friday to Sunday, 14 to 16 September 2018

Well, I didn't journal the last two nights because I was exhausted and didn't accomplish much on Friday and Saturday.  I feel like I wasted Friday chasing genea-bunnies,  only blogged twice, and watched the Padres game.  On Saturday, we were out from 9 to 1, then watched the Padres game and Aztecs game (until 11:30) in the evening.  I didn't sleep well either night, and am exhausted now on Sunday night.

1)  Friday - 14 September:

*  Dropped Linda, home to read, noted that 52 Ancestors - Week 243: #368 Jonathan Oatley (1689-1755) of Washington County, Rhode Island posted, picked her up, and home to read more, take a nap, and write Genealogy News Bytes - 14 September 2018 in the afternoon.  Checked Facebook and Twitter, worked on the two Saturday posts, had dinner, answered email, and watched the Padres game.  We lost to Texas Rangers.  Genealogy on Friday was about 7.0 hours.

2)  Saturday - 15 September:

*  Read email and blogs, Linda didn't go swimming.  We left at 8:45 a.m. for downtown San Diego to attend Ruthie's bat mitzvah at a synagogue.  I had forgotten that the services were 3 hours long, and almost all in Hebrew.  We skipped the luncheon and were home by 1:15 p.m., had lunch, and I took a nap.

* Online to note that Surname Saturday -- LNU (Sarah married John Allen, England to colonial New England) and What Was the First Genealogical Society You Joined? -- Saturday Night Genealogy Fun posted, then wrote the FamilySearch and Ancestry update posts.  Added to the Best Of post.  Noted that Added or Updated Record Collections at FamilySearch.org - Week of 9 to 15 September 2018 posted.

*  Went in for dinner, and we watched the Padres game against Texas.  We lost again.  Frustrating.  The Aztecs game started at 7:30 so I watched that until the end at 11:30.  Aztecs beat Arizona State 28-21 and it shouldn't have been that close.  Laid in bed for an hour before sleep came.  Genealogy on Saturday was about 3.5 hours.

3)  Sunday, 16 September:

*  Read email and blogs, didn't go to church, and watched the Chargers game.  They won 31-20 and it shoulda been 45-13.  Oh well.  Then we watched the Padres game, I rested my eyes several times, and Pads finally won 7-3 on a walkoff grand slam.  So Pads are 60-90 on the season.  

*  Worked on the Amanuensis Monday transcription, and wrote the post.  Noted that Added or Updated Ancestry.com Record Collections - Week of 9 to 15 September 2018 and Best of the Genea-Blogs - 9 to 15 September 2018 posted.

*  We went to Lolita's for dinner, then Ralph's for groceries, and were home by 6:30 p.m.  Watched the news, then online at 7 p.m. to read, start the Best Of post, and worked on Ancestry Hints for the big database.  Resolved about 400 of them, adding content and sources for some of them (Maybe 20%?).

*  Answered email, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 4.0 hours.

Thursday, September 13, 2018

My Genealogy Thursday - 13 September 2018

This was an all genealogy day with no Padres game, but I had a nap.

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read email and blogs, noted that 1667 Marriage of Joseph Tripp and Mehetabel Fish in Dartmouth, Mass. - Post 429 for Treasure Chest Thursday posted, and picked her up at 9:30 a.m. and we went to Costco.  Had lunch there.  Home by 10:45 a.m.

*  Read email and blogs, sleepy so laid down for a nap.  Dozed a bit, I think.  Online at 12 noon to read, then looked for the Seaver newspaper article.  Found it, and wrote Seavers in the News - Florence Seaver Attacked in 1927 in Birmingham, Alabama.

*  Did some research on Florence's parents and added their family to the RootsMagic database.  Then determined that the family linked into the Ireland family in County Armagh, so I added those families from the George Seaver book.  Cool - added about 50 Seaver folks today.

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook, and answered email.  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to eat dinner, read the paper, wash dishes and water the front plants.

*  Went in at 6:30 p.m. to add more Ireland Seavers, then worked on and wrote the 52 Ancestors post for Friday.  Treeshared about 80 persons so now Ancestry will find Hints for all of those Irish families.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.

*  Afterwards, I took the car to Courtney Tire in Chula Vista and they removed the offending screw and patched the tire.  Cost?  $0.00.  Nice folks - it's there policy to fix tires so that you will buy new ones there.  I will.

My Semi-Genealogy Sunday - 9 September 2018

It was apparently Grandparents Day, but we didn't hear from the kids.  Oh well.  My oldest grandkid will be 15 on Monday.  Yikes.  He's finally growing up.  This was not a big genealogy day because of the church lunch and football.

*  Went in at 11:30 a.m. to watch the Padres game, dozed in the recliner, read the paper, and was resigned to a loss, behind 4-2 in the 9th inning.  Three walks, a hit, an out, a grand slam and another homer made it a great 8-4 victory over the Brewers.  So 4-3 on the road trip to the two best teams in the NL, and now 46-71 on the season.

*  Online to read, added to the Best Of post, checked Twitter and Facebook, and then added slides to the Conference presentation about RootsTech.  almost done in time for next Wednesday!

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to work on the 52 Ancestors post, then TreeShared about 40 profiles on the big tree, and wrote the Amanuensis Monday post ahead of time.  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  I'll be a blogging fool on Monday!  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.

My Genealogy Wednesday - 8 August 2018

This was an all-genealogy day except for the Padres game in the evening.  Warm again today - high around 90, it's still 87F in the genea-cave at 9 p.m., but cooler outside.  Fan going, windows open.

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

*  Noted that Jamboree 2014 Photos - Day 3 - Post 527 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted, added to the Best Of post, and gathered my stuff for the CVGS Research Group meeting.

*  Tried to nap but failed, worked on email, had lunch, and off to the library at 11:20 a.m.  Got there and got set up by 11:45, and we had 15 in attendance.  Home by 2:30 p.m.

*  Noted that San Diego Genealogical Society Meeting on Saturday, 11 August Features Sarah Cochran posted, and wrote Finding David Auble's Land Records in Sussex County, New Jersey.  Checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to fix dinner, we ate and watched the Padres game.  I read the paper, put out the trash, read the latest Family Tree Magazine, and washed dishes.  Padres lost 8-4 to Brewers so now 45-71 on the season.

My Genealogy Tuesday - 7 August 2018

This was a stay-at-home genealogy day, but with an evening Padres game to restrict research time.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y at 7:40 a.m., then home to read email and blogs, and picked her up at 9:05, and we went to the grocery store.  Home by 9:45 a.m.

*  Noted that Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1930 Voter Register for Abbie A. Smith in San Diego, California posted, and added to the Best Of post.

*  Searched for GenealogyBank obituaries for 2018 for Seaver folks and found 28 matches.  Added several to the RootsMagic database, and added some family members too.  Searched for vital records and added them and sources for many of them.

*  Wrote Ancestry.com Recently Added New York State Birth Index, 1881-1942 and then took my nap.

*  Had lunch, and online at 12:30 p.m. to read, then worked on the Genealogy News Bytes - 7 August 2018 post.

*  Added over 30 photos to the Conferences presentation - most from past Jamborees to show the breadth and fun of the conference.  Still need to add RootsTech to the presentation.

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook, then added two more obituaries from GenealogyBank to the database.  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to fix and eat dinner, watch the Padres game, wash dishes, water the front plants, read the paper, and finish my Kellerman novel.  Started the Vince Flynn novel.  Padres came back to beat Brewers 11-5, so now 45-70 on the season, and won two in a row and 3 of 5 in August.

*  Online at 8:30 to read, add to the Best Of post, write two posts for Wednesday, check Facebook, and write this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
