My genealogy Saturday - 27 October 2012

A rare stay-at-home Saturday, and I got some things done.  also found an error in my database and fixed it.  Probably not the only one!

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Surname Saturday - BLODGETT (England > Massachusetts) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - The Music Generator and set it for early afternoon.

*  Wrote several more blog posts for next weekend when we'll be gone.  Checked Facebook too.

*  Worked in the database for quite awhile.  Uncovered that Edith Kemp did not marry Leo Niemeyer as I had (same mother's maiden name, right age, right place...), and figured out that it was Edith Drumm who did (not mine, but after working on them for over an hour I left them in the database).  I wonder if Edith Kemp lived to 1930 or ever married?  Did lots of searching in SSDI and GenealogyBank for Kemp cousins.  Found death dates/spouses/children for quite a few!

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch the baseball game, eat dinner, read the paper and read my book.  Giants won 2-0 to take a 3-0 lead in the Series.

*  Online at 8:45 p.m. to find the computer unresponsive...finally rebooted and it worked.  Hmmm.  Several error messages which I looked at and tried to accommodate.  

*  Read, then added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and worked in Find-A-Grave adding content and sources.  Down to 1038 matches on MyHeritage.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
