My Genealogy Thursday - 24 May 2018

This was more of a stay-at-home Thursday than I anticipated.  I didn't getm uch done today even though there was no nap and no Padres game.  The time flew by.

*  It was misty this morning, and Linda didn't go to the Y.  I read email and blogs, and noted that   1700 Birth Record of Abigail Thurston in Little Compton, R.I. - Post 413 for Treasure Chest Thursday posted.

*  We left at 9 for Linda's hair appointment and were back by 9:40 a.m.  Wrote Announcing "Unlock the Past in Seattle" Conference with Blaine Bettinger and Maurice Gleeson and set it for later.  Added to the Best Of post.

*  Worked for awhile in adding notes to about 20 of my ancestors.  I need to do more of this.  I also need to figure out how to add families easily on Geni.

*  Tried to nap, but gave up after 15 minutes.  Had lunch, then lookerd for Seaver news items.  Found several.  Wrote Seavers in the News - Roland Burrage Dixon Death in 1934 in Boston and set it for later.  Added him and his parents to the database, and solved the longstanding Lewis Seaver issue - he changed his name after his father died, and took his step-father's surname.

*  Answered email and FS messages, and added more data to a Seaver family and updated it on Family Tree.  also updated the Lewis Seaver family on Family Tree.

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook, and worked a bit more in Family Tree and RootsMagic adding content and sources. 

*  Went in at 5:10 p.m. to eat dinner, watch TV, read the paper, and do dishes.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then worked on the 52 Ancestors post.  Treeshared about 90 folks in the big tree.  Answered email, and added to the Best Of post. 

*  Checked Facebook and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
