My Genealogy Tuesday - 22 October 2013

Tomorrow is my BIG day - I turn 70 years old.  It's been a fun ride.  I wonder what the future holds!  Probably do more genealogy research, speaking and teaching in the short term!  This was a pretty normal genealogy day...I needed one of those to catch up.

*  Read emails and blogs, then wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Harvey Carringer (1852-1946) in Mount Hope Cemetery (San Diego) and researched and wrote Answering Sue's Extracting Challenge - A Simple Massachusetts Deed.

*  Updated my OASIS syllabus and sent them to Roxanne.  She told me to copy them myself.  Oh well...I had to do it anyway.  Got a November speaking gig up in LA, probably a last-minute replacement.  Answered a bunch of email.

*  Copied photos from Dropbox to Pictures, then went on Facebook and uploaded some of them and captioned them.  Made a shared Dropbox folder for Lori and put them there too.

*  Hunted around on all of the websites trying different searches but didn't find anything to excite me.  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, read the paper, eat dinner and do the dishes.

*  Online at 6 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, answer more email, wrote Extracting Information From a 1930 U.S. Census Record and then did some online research in Ancestry.  Got down through the Dop* names.  Wrote this post.  Over 45,400 sources now.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
