Genea-Journal - Tuesday, 19 February 2019

This was not a big genealogy day for me - because life intervened and I had little time to do something research wise.  It was a cool day - we had frost on the windshield this morning - that hasn't happened for 10 or 20 years here.  %he low overnight here was in the high 30s.  The high today was about 60.  More rain on Wednesday.After 4+ months, we have more rainfall than our average - 10.5 inches at San Diego.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, add to the Best Of post, and noted that   Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1800 U.S. Census Record of the Burges Metcalf Household in Piermont, N.H. posted.

*  Picked her up at 9 and we went grocery shopping, and home by 9:45 a.m.  I read blogs, answered email, and at 10:30 lay down for a nap.

*  Online at 11:15, I started a post and didn't finish it until later.  We left at 11:35 for Linda's dentist appointment.  I went to the library and got the latest Lee Child book.  We went to lunch at In 'n' Out and were home at 2 p.m.

*  Online to write the Genealogy News Bytes - 19 February 2019 post and finished up the RootsTech 2019 Syllabus Articles Are Available on Mobile App and Web Browser post.  We had TV problems, so I called DirecTV and sorted it out, finally.  Both of us were frustrated.

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook.  Worked in RootsMagic for awhile to answer an email question on the Marshman family in Wiltshire.  

*  Went in for dinner at 5:20 p.m., read the paper, watched TV news, and did the dishes.  

*  Online at 6:45 p.m. to read, then wrote the Wordless Wednesday post, and resolved 195 Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources to the RootsMagic database.

*  Went in at 8 p.m. to watch Finding Your Roots.  I would prefer only two subjects in the hour just so we can hear more of each story.  This one was pretty mundane, and no DNA shown other than the famous cousin.  How come I don't get famous cousins?

*  Online at 9 p.m. to add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and write this post.  Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.
