Genea-Journal - Thursday, 14 March 2019

Pi day - enough said!  Linda asked about it, I explained, 3.141589265+ and she didn't understand.  This was a stay-at-home day, and I actually started on the taxes.Also did some fun genea-stuff.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, noted that MyHeritage Releases Three Census Record Collections from Norway and Treasure Chest Thursday - 1736 Marriage Record of Joseph Colby and Abigail Warren in Amesbury, Mass. posted.  Added to the Best Of blog.

*  Picked Linda up and home by 9:15 a.m.  Added to the Best Of post.  

*  Decided to start on the taxes - looked for my TurboTax for 2018 and it was nowhere to be found.  Not where it Should be. Not anywhere.  Checked the email and saw that I opted for the download instead of the CD.  Wasted 45 minutes there!  Got it installed, and got the income entered in except for the investments.  Tried to download the investment dividend and capital gains data from the investment firm, and got some, but not others.  Called the advisor who said "remember, we switched to another firm" for one account?"  Finally entered all of the data (it wasn't hard - 5 entries).  I really don't like the outcome here!

*  Decided I'd had enough and wanted to have some fun.  Wrote Seavers in the News - Effie E. Seaver Dies in 1930 in Delaware.  Had lunch.  Updated the Best Of and RootsTech posts.  Added about 25 MyHeritage record matches to the RootsMagic database.

*  Ancestry has free Ireland records this weekend, so I started using them for the Irish Seaver folks in my RootsMagic tree.  Found a bunch more and entered about six families.  Took an hour nap.

*  Online at 4 p.m. to work some more on Irish Seavers, then checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner (corned beef and cabbage), watch TV, read the paper, and wash dishes.

*  Online at 6:15 to work on the 52 Ancestors profile, and wrote the post.  Answered email.  Downloaded some Colby deeds from Essex County - nothing that helps with the Warren/Worthen quandary.

*  TreeShared 199 profiles to sync the RootsMagic and Ancestry trees. 

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
