Genea-Journal - Friday, 19 April 2019

I finally opened the Forever box and watched most of the home movies.  Some goodies there.  Have to use the USB drive because the CD/DVD drive won't open on the desktop computer. 

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   52 Ancestors - Week 274: #449 Maria (--?--) (Abel) Tedrick (1693-1771) of Germany and Morris County, New Jersey posted.

Picked her up, and home by 9:15 a.m.  The FMP presser never showed up.  Wrote Seeing AncestryDNA ThruLines From Your Ancestry Member Tree Pedigree Chart.  Not a big deal, but helpful.  Took a nap.

*  Had lunch, then worked in MyHeritage record matches adding content to the RootsMagic tree.  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 19 April 2019.  Checked Facebook and Twitter.

*  Broke open the Forever box that came last week, and found the two DVDs and the USB drive.  Put the USB drive in - all 23 files are 3 minutes and about 60 mb.  Watched most of them - lots of talking to myself, berating of the camerafolk, they could have been even better.  Made some screenshots while watching full screen and saved them.  Some are priceless photos - I'll use them for the Wordless Wednesday.  I have no photographs at all of most of the scenes in these movies!  

*  Went in at 5:10 p.m. to eat dinner and watch TV news.  Online at 6 p.m. to write the two Saturday posts, then copied the movies to the external drive.  I need to get them in a cloud drive too, but don't have 1.3 gb to spare.  

*  Went in at 7:10 to watch the Padres game, read the paper, read my book, and wash dishes.  Padres lost 3-2 in the 11th inning to the Reds, now 11-10 and lost 5 in a row.  Drat.

*  Checked email and blogs on my phone, then online on the desktop to write this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.

Genea-Journal - Thursday, 11 April 2019

This was a busy day.  I was tired all day, but had no time to take a nap.  I did complete a major task - the tax returns are submitted!  And the checks are written and in the mail.  I feel poorer.

*  Got there at 9:50, got set up in the classroom, and started the class using their computer.  The screen dimmed about 10 minutes in and at 20 minutes it went off.  Turns out that the wall plug wasn't working - put it in the lower plug and everything was bright and beautiful.  Had only 5 students today - one sick, one outta town.  We went long because I always have too much to share.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to eat lunch, then online to write Seavers in the News -- George W. Seaver Files for Divorce in 1924.  

*  Started in on the taxes again, and decided I was done and tried to submit them electronically.  I had to log into TurboTax to pay for the state tax efile,  The site froze up and I couldn't change my password so I called the help line which wasn't much help.  Finally got out of TurboTax and went to the site, changed my password successfully on about the 6th try, and then opened TurboTax again and was able to pay up and efile both returns.  Wasted almost an hour doing all this.  Really perturbed!

*  The game was over at 10 p.m., and I read email and blogs, and wrote this post.  Got an email from a 4th cousin on the Kemp line who is working on genealogy.   Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.

Genea-Journal - Friday, 5 April 2019

Another day without working on the taxes - subconsciously avoiding the inevitable signing of big checks, I think.  A cool and cloudy day, with some drizzle in the morning.  I spent all day in the genea-cave, it seems.  Brother-in-law Paul comes on Saturday morning so genealogy may be light over the weekend.

*  Went off to church at 9:45 a.m., talked to John, talked to Paul A., and Gil B., and home by 11:10 a.m.  Finished up the transcription and wrote the blog post.

*  Added to the RootsTech post, and noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 3 to 9 March 2019 posted.  Had lunch.

*  Edited the CVGS Newsletter and made the PDF.  Emailed it to the members.  Added to the Best Of post and answered email.  Sleepy, so went in on the recliner and dozed for 30 minutes.

*  Online at 2:30 p.m. to read, then worked a bit in FamilySearch Family Tree adding life sketches, sources and notes to several of my ancestors.  Also fixed some of the unstandard place names for quite a few of my ancestors.  Now the BirthPlace fan chart looks right.  

*  Worked out in front hacking at the ivy and pulling weeds.  Got quite a bit done.  Tired, and dirty hands.  I should use gloves. 

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to eat dinner, watch TV news, read the paper and do the dishes.  

*  Online at 6:45 p.m. to read, answered email, and resolved over 300 Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources.  Have about 100 profiles to TreeShare sometime.

*  Added to the Best Of post and checked Facebook, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
