Genea-Journal - Thursday, 2 May 2019

This was almost an all genealogy day.  The Padres game interfered a bit but it was at nap time.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1856 Burial Record of William Knapp in Newton, New Jersey posted.

*  Picked her up, and we went grocery shopping.  Home by 9:40.  Watched the Padres game in Atlanta, had lunch, read the paper, checked my phone, and Padres won 11-2 as the bats finally broke out.  So now 18-14 and home for 3 games against the Dodgers and then the Mets.

*  Online at 12:15 to read, then wrote Seavers in the News - Mrs. D.F. Seaver Dies in Toledo, Ohio in 1921.  Wrote My FOREVER Home Movie Digitization Experience - Wonderful!

*  Worked a bit in GenealogyBank finding obituaries and adding them to the RootsMagic database.  Checked Twitter and Facebook.  Worked on the 52 Ancestor biography.  Worked in WebHints for RootsMagic profiles trying to find birth, marriage or death dates.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. for dinner, we ate, I washed dishes and picked some weeds.  The neighbor came over to talk about the hillside.

*  Online at 6:30 to write the 52 Ancestors post, then got the CVGS Newsletter started and about 30% done.  TreeShared 144 RootsMagic profiles to the Ancestry tree.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, answered email, and checked Facebook, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.

Genea-Journal - Wednesday, 1 May 2019

Four months down, 8 to go in 2019.  Time sure flies when I'm doing genealogy.  Life too, it seems.  

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read, added to the Best Of post, and noted that Georgianna (Kemp) Auble and the Pentecosts -- Post 563 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted.

*  Picked her up at 9 a.m., and we went to the hair dresser for her haircut.  Home by 10 a.m.

*  Answered email, printed the CVGS stuff, and took a nap.  Had lunch, and left for the library at 11:20 a.m.

*  This was Karen Y's last day, so we said goodbye...sad for me because she has been a great friend and newsletter proofreader, and an excellent society secretary.  The Bored meeting was, and I covered the newsletter, research group, DNA group, and member survey.

*  Home by 2 p.m. to read, noted that Randy Seaver Presenting "Discovering George W. Seaver's Life Story" at Bonita-Sunnyside Library on Saturday, 4 May posted and wrote Dear Randy: How Do You Explain This 1940 U.S. Census Entry?

*  Checked Twitter and Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and dabbled a bit in RootsMagic, which has worked well since the problem last night.

*  Went in at 4:30 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, ate dinner, read my book, put out the trash, and did the dishes.  Padres lost to Braves 5-1, so now 17-14 on the season, and 3-3 on the road trip.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, wrote the Treasure Chest post, and resolved 239 Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources to the RootsMagic tree.

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