My genealogy days - 8 and 9 May 2011

Not much genealogy research done on Sunday and Monday.

On Sunday, 8 May ( Mother's Day):

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs post and set it for after noon.  Went off to church.

*  Home by 11:45 a.m., read everything, worked on the CVGS Newsletter a bit.  Went in at 1:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and take a nap.  Padres won 4-3 over Dbacks (now 14-20).

*  Left at 4:30 p.m. to go to dinner at Hob Nob Hill.  Not that good this time. 

*  Home by 6:30 p.m. to work on CVGS Newsletter.  Got it finished.  Printer wouldn't work.  No matter what I did, it wouldn't work, so replaced the Lexmark with the HP sitting on the chair in the spare bedroom.  Worked fine.  Now I need ink for it, after buying ink for the Lexmark on Friday.  Argghhh.  Can always reinstall the Lexmark, I think.

*  Printed out the mail labels and the newsletter to take to printer on Monday.

*  Wrote Amanuensis Monday - Will of Ephraim Buck (1646-1721) of Woburn, Mass. because of possible time problems on Monday.

On Monday, 9 May:

*  Read email and blogs, but had to watch the grandgirls in the morning.  When they went off at 10:30 as.m. for haircuts and lunch, I gathered up the CVGS Newsletter stuff and went to UPS Store.  30 minutes job.

*  Home to eat lunch, read everything, and write The Family of Martha (Davis) Seaver (1793-1868).   Emailed the CVGS Newsletter to CVGS members.  Went in at 1:30 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper and take a nap.

*  Worked on the 1900 census citations until Audrey was up from her nap at 3:30 p.m.  Got her snacked and dressed, and Lolo up at 4.  We left at 4:45 p.m. for dinner at Rubios, and goodbyes at 6 p.m.

*  Home to watch the Padres game - lost 4-3 to Milwaukee (now 14-21). 

*  Started to work on the Map talk for Wednesday.  Wrote the Tuesday's Tip for Tuesday because I have medical test in the morning.  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.
