My genealogy day - 26 January 2013

It was a rainy and foggy day again, although the rain stopped in the morning.  I stayed home again, as did Linda.  I do feel better than earlier in the week.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - HARTSHORN (England > Medfield, Mass.) posted and wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - The "Other You" and set it for early afternoon.

*  Given the choice of doing random pinball genealogy or working on the check book, or the taxes, or the CVGS survey, what do you think I chose to do?

*  You guessed it - I worked on adding content and sources to my database for the rest of the day (pretty much).  Found lots of info for the 3 Edwin Pliny Seaver guys and their families, and tonight worked out a problem with two Earl Seavers born in 1892 who I had put together as one guy.  Finally figured that out, with the help of census records and WWI and WWII draft registration cards.  Whew!  Used the Vermont BRs a lot also sorting out vital stats.

*  Answered some email, checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post and watched some TV (SDSU beat UNM, golf tournament was delayed due to fog, news) during the day.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
