My Geneaholic Thursday - 12 June 2014

This was a very full day, uninterrupted by the Padres game because I didn't watch it.  It didn't help.

*  Read email but not blogs due to Feedly outage again, wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 218: 1860 Census Record for Manning Knapp Family.

*  Printed more syllabus articles from the CD, and left at 9:40 a.m. for the library for the Research Group.  Had 11 there after the date/time change. Tablet hotspot worked like a charm in the auditorium, but still leery of doing a program with it there!   I described Jamboree syllabus, videos, and showed my pictures, and then went around the room.  Two more came just before we wrapped up.

*  Stopped at McDonalds for lunch, then home to watch the last two innings of the Padres game - lost to Phillies 7-3, so now 28-38 and in last place.  Drat.

*  Noted that The 1858 Murder Trial of Mortimer Seaver - Post 3: Testimony of 4 More Witnesses posted and wrote Book Notice: The Parrett Migration: Their Story is America's Story, by Dawn Parrett Thurston and set it for later.

*  Added more posts to the Jamboree blog, then created the Flipboard magazine (see about three hours.

*  Had dinner, then put the brick pavers back in the rose beds.  Used them all, but not sure that's where they were before.  Oh well.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, check Facebook, update the Best Of and Jamboree compendium posts, answered email, and wrote the 52 Ancestors post for Friday.  Had to add some sources and notes for this one, the end of the 2nd great-grandparents.

*  Worked in MyHeritage record matches on the zero star Find A Grave matches - rejected about half of 36 of them, confirmed about half, 24 left to do.  Added content and sources to the database.

*  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
