Genea-Journal - Tuesday, 30 April 2019

Well, this was a day for surprises.  Sometimes things suddenly don't work.  Rained off and on all morning here.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1796 Birth and Baptism Record of Elisabet Konig in York, Pennsylvania posted.

*  Picked her up, and went to the grocery store.  Home by 9:45 a.m.  Online to read, then checked Seaver entries on Billion Graves.  Found 2 that I didn't have a RootsMagic entry for, but research did not find them after an hour or more of trying.  

*  Wrote Findmypast Says "Get Ready for Ancestor Sharing" and had lunch.  Added to the Best Of post, and worked in WebHints in RootsMagic for awhile.

*  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 30 April 2019 and then checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Heard a noise in the family room, and Linda yelped.  Went in and our chairside table with the attached lamp had the lamp fixture broken - it exploded and she got her hand blackened.  Unplugged it, emptied it, but we didn't have a replacement so kept it there, with a freestanding desk light to read by.  Very bright but works great!  Whew.  Looked online for replacement table "just like ours" which is 30-40 years old.  

*  Padres game started at 4:20, so read the paper, ate dinner, did the dishes and read my book.  Padres beat Braves 4-3 so now 17-13 on the season.  

*  Online at 7:10 p.m. and wrote two posts for Wednesday.  Started to work in RootsMagic and it didn't open right.  A message said "There was a problem loading the user preferences."  I tried entering all of the user preferences and RM froze before I could save them.  Posted the problem to Facebook, then decided to try something.  Got it working, I think!  

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
