Randy's Genealogy Day - 24 September 2010

It doesn't get much better than working on genealogy, walking on the bayfront on a sunny day, and watching the Padres win.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote What happened to Rachel (Morley) Whittle?  Got cleaned up.

*  Did more looking for Rachel and Alexander in the newspapers without any success.   Answered some emails.  Had a question about a certain Seaver and found his death in the Mass VRs for a correspondent.  Checked out the Mass VRs 1911-1915 - looks like I've already mined them.

*  Had lunch, and went off to walk with George on the bayfront.  A nice day...haven't walked for two months while he's been sunning in Greece.  Stopped at the library, bank and gas station, and home by 1:30 PM.

Wrote Dear Randy - Family Tree Information and then got into the database.  Worked on sources for the Kenyon, Barber, Soule families until dinner time.

*  Had dinner, watched TV news while Linda was on computer, watered the back yard and front plants, and was able to read everything before the Padres game.

*  Finished my Robert Parker book in the 8tyh inning of a tense Padres win over the Reds, 4-3.  Still half a game behind the Giants, but a half game up on Braves now.  Pennant races are fun!  And frustrating.

*  Read everything, checked Facebook, wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour doing online research, and 2.0 hours working in the database on sources.
