My genealogy Monday - 27 May 2013

The grandgirls were here over the weekend, including this morning, so I did very little on the genealogy front on Saturday and Sunday.

*  Today, I read email and blogs, then wrote Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Arthur Hathaway (1630-1711) of Dartmouth, Mass. and I'm Presenting "An Overview of New England Research" on Tuesday, 28 May at NSDCGS (Carlsbad, Calif.) and set it for later in the day, all while feeding the girls and playing with them.

*  Got the girls out in the sun for awhile - we took a walk, they scootered, and then sat in the shade in the back yard while Audrey collected seed pods and filled them with bird seed.  Lolo worked on the computer for awhile - she even contacted customer support of a website for help!  

*  We met Tami and James at 12:15 p.m. at Lolita's for lunch, and then back to the house to pack up and send them off to a barbecue.  We came home and watched the Padres game, napped, and I read the paper and then my book.  Pads lost 9-0 to the Mariners and it wasn't that close.  Easily one of the worst games of the year.  Now 22-28.  

*  Online at 4 p.m. to work on CVPC stuff, then answered some email, checked FTDNA results, and looked for info online about Thomas Hale and Robert Hale.  Found great websites for both, with useful information.  

*  Went in for dinner at 5:30 p.m., then back online at 6 p.m. to work on my presentation for Tuesday.  Added content, edited format, saved it as PDF, put onlto Dropbox, fired up the laptop, copied it from Dropbox to lap, then to flash drive, and shut laptop down.

*  Wrote two posts for Tuesday since I'll be away from 8:15 a.m. until 1 p.m.  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
