Genea-Journal - Thursday, 24 October 2019

What a frustrating day.  The Cox Cable which we have for TV, internet and phone went out around 2 p.m. and didn't come back until about 7:30 p.m.  When I called, the phone message said it might be restored by 7:05 p.m.  close enough.  But it sure played havoc with Linda's TV watching, or dinner in silence, and my computer work.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   Treasure Chest Thursday - 1820 U.S. Census Record for Martin Carringer Household in Mercer County, Pennsylvania posted.

*  Picked her up and we were home by 9:15 a.m.  I wrote RootsTech London 2019 Conference Blog Compendium (but the posts are sparse so far - none tonight!) and then took my nap.

*  Online at 11:30, had lunch, then wrote Seavers in the News -- Adam Seaver Dies in Clifton, Kansas in 1889 and set it for later.

*  Answered email, and worked matching profiles with FamilySearch Family Tree.  The Internet got slow, and finally stopped.  The TV went out.  Hmmm.  After an hour of trying to reboot and getting nowhere, I called Cox and got the message that my neighborhood was affected.

*  I opened up the laptop and used my phone as a hotspot (thereby using up most of my monthly data allotment!).  So I was able to add to the Best Of post and get on Facebook.  But Facebook wouldn't let me post anything more than a one word post, but would allow a many word comment.  Strange.  Still happens.  I wonder why.

*  Went in and we ate dinner with the fan going and no TV, read the paper, did the dishes.  

*  Remembered that I could still use the desktop with RootsMagic, so started on the 52 Ancestors sketch.  Had to add about 15 deed source citations to the profile.  At 7:30 the Cox Cable came back on and Linda was happy.  Finished up the profile and wrote the 52 Ancestors post.  This is the first of my 7th great-grandparents.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  genealogy today was 10 hours.
