My Genealogy Thursday - 14 November 2013

Well, we had some car trouble today.  Hadn't happened for two years or more.  Shop couldn't fix it - it went away.  That's the worst kind of car trouble!  Disrupted my genealogy work a bit!

* Read email and blogs, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 189: Obituary for Alma Bessie (Richmond) Seaver (1882-1962)

*  Linda came home and said the car was jerking, so I took it down to Don's, told them the history, and got a ride home.

*  Back to work - wrote Finding John's Other Grandmother, R.A. (--?--) Collins in Online Resources.

*  Modified the OASIS presentations and handouts, and saved them to Dropbox and the flash drive.

*  Worked a bit on the George Allen of Sandwich problem in WikiTree, then found the Sandwich VR book on AmericanAncestors and went thorugh it for Allens and several other families and added page citations to events.

*  The car shop called, and Linda took me down to Dons and I picked up the car.  The jerkiness didn't occur while they had it.  Transmission or throttle control or something else.  Need the dealer to figure it out.  

*  Home by 3 p.m. to read, then added some sources to several Seaver families from census records.  Researched and wrote Dear TGF: How Should Our Library Digitize and Organize Collected Family Records?

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, read the paper and watched TV news.

*  Online at 6 p.m. for the APG webinar with Josh Taylor.  Multitasked during it trying to solve a Seaver problem - can't find Susan Seaver's first husband surnamed Black.  Worked on it for two hours with no results.

*  Wrote a blog post for Friday morning, then worked in FamilySearch in Vermont VR cards adding content and sources for several Buck families already in the database.  Got sources up to 46645.

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
