My Genealogy Wednesday - 30 October 2013

I even went to the FSC today for awhile.  Will wonders never cease.  didn't find much, though.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 280: My 70th Birthday Cake On Fire and then Adding Fact Notes and Research Notes to My RootsMagic 6 Database and set it for later.

*  Packedn up and went off at 9:40 a.m. to the FamilySearch Center in Mission Valley.  Met the CVGS colleagues there - 14 of us in all, on a field trip.  Most of us sat in on the FamilySearch Family Tree presentation by the center director.  I listened, helped some people, and worked in the FSFT a bit adding sources and records and merged Mary Hazard.  We left at 12:15 p.m. and went to Marie Callendar's for lunch, I had soup and pie.  Yum, pie!  Good conversation at lunch.

*  Home by 2:30 p.m., to read, add to the Best Of post, and write RootsTech 2014 is Just Three Months Away! Limited Time Discount Offered!

*  Found the Eastham VRs from the Mayflower Descendant on and captured pages up through Volume 20.  Renamed and put them in a separate file folder.  Now I need to use them to source the vitals I have from Eastham.  There's more to get.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch the World Series game, read the paper, eat dinner, water the front plants, and wash the dishes.  The game got out of hand, so I came in to the computer at 7:30 p.m.

*  Downloaded more Eastham VR pages, then worked in the database adding MyHeritage Record Matches from Find A Grave.  Down to 1013 to be confirmed.  Added about 80 source citations today.

*  Checked Facebook and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
