My Geneaholic Monday - 20 October 2014

I didn't journal on Saturday or Sunday, mainly because I did little of interest in genealogy.

1)  Saturday, 18 October:

*  Quickly read email and blogs, then off to the Men's breakfast at Marie Callenders.  Home at 9:30 to note that Surname Saturday - LNU (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted.

*  We left at 11:45 a.m. for Carlsbad to meet Tami and the girls at 12:30 for lunch.  Got my Charlie fix, and the girls too...we went to the mall after lunch, Tami shopped, and I used Charlie as a chick magnet.  We left at 3:45 p.m., home by 4:30.

*  Took a nap, ate dinner, watched football, online at 7 p.m. and noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - What Is Your All-Time Favorite Song? posted.

*  Watched the Aztecs game - they won 20-10 over Hawaii.  Read and quit for the night.  Genealgoy this day was about 3.0 hours.

2)  Sunday, 19 October:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 12 to 18 October 2014 post.  Then off to church.

*  Homer by 11:15 a.m. to read, then watched football on TV.  Charger game was at 1 p.m.  Chiefs waxed us 23-20, but it wasn't that close.  

*  Went out and cut the front lawn to reduce my frustration.  Watered the front yard.  Came in to eat dinner, watch TV news, and online at 7 p.m. to read, check Facebook, and clear 54 of the 1940 US Census matches.  Added a bunch of source citations.

*  Started the new Best Of post, answered some email.  Genealogy this day was 4.5 hours.

3)  Monday, 20 October 2014:

*  Finally, a clear genealogy day, and DearMYRTLE cancels the Mondays With Myrt.  Drat.  Oh well.  Read email and blogs, then wrote Amanuensis Monday - Post 240: 1872 Deed of Land in Taylor County, Iowa from Devier J. and Abbie A. Smith to Alexander John.

*  Research in Billion Graves and wrote Billion Graves Cemetery Maps and Gravesite Transcriptions and set it for later.

*  Updated Legacy Family Tree.  Fixed the lost Auble surname file - where and when did that go away?   Retrieved it from  Figured out I needed iTunes open to sync the iCloud.  Duh - worked fine then!  Spent 30 minutes getting a hotel room at the Hilton in SLC, Drat.  Wanted the Radisson.

*  Found the Kemp papers, and photoed them, then wrote My Top Genea-Discoveries -- Kemp Family Records and set it for later.

*  Got back into the 1940 U.S. Census and cleared 47 more, adding sources and some content when necessary.  Need to get the Seaver folks in there...

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, dozed a bit, and had dinner.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and then worked in the Hi surnames - got down to Hilton adding sources and content.  Sources now 55,644 (up 158 from Friday).  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
