My Genealogy Saturday - 16 June 2018

This was an atypical summer Saturday - I  got some genealogy searching done.  But my Padres lost again.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to load the dryer, off at 7:40 for Marie Callenders and the men's Bible study.  We started Joshua today.  Picked Linda up and home by 9:50 a.m.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, noted that Surname Saturday -- LNU (England to colonial New England) posted, and worked in the RootsMagic database matching FamilySearch Family Tree profiles.  

*  Decided to hunt for more descendants of 4th great-grandparents, and found quite a few I had bot found on the Carringer/Spangler line.  Added persons, searched Ancestry, FamilySearch and Finbdmypast methodically, and found a number of potential DNA cousins.  

*  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - What Did Your Father Love To Do? posted, and then wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch new collection posts.  

*  Worked in some more, and found death notices for my Carringer 2nd great-grandparents in Pennsylvania newspapers!  Gave the cause of death which I didn't have.  

*  Went in at 2:30 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, took a recliner nap, and we ate dinner afterwards watching the news.  Padres lost 1-0 to Braves, so now 34-39.  Went out and cut some of the rose bushes for a bit.

*  Online at 6 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, noted that Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 19 to 16 June 2018 posted.

*  Worked more in the Carringer/Spangler families and added more distant cousin families.  TreeShared about 160 profiles with the Ancestry Tree (took 35 minutes - about 4.5 per minute). 

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
