My Geneaholic Thursday - 16 October 2014

We're halfway through October...and i'm a week shy of 71 now.  The weather has cooled off a bit, highs in the upper 70s this week.  This was another all-genealogy stay-home day.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 236: Norman Sever's Military Service Summary.  Answered email.

*  Worked a bit in billion Graves, testing the Plus features.  Went down a research rabbit hole from one of the Seaver entries, and added 4 generations of a new Seaver bush.  Earliest is a Massachusetts guy, but cannot attach him to another family yet.

*  Researched and wrote More About Census Images and Census Viewer - UPDATED.

*  Watched one of Russ's videos, and uploaded a GEDCOM to FamilyTreeDNA.  Did 12 generations of ancestors, but it shows only 5.  

*  Tried to force Ancestry to add Hints for many branches of my Ancestry Member Tree.  Went methodically through it to highlight 2nd great-grandparents, wait for the Hints to appear in Family view, and then move on.  That added thousands more Hints to the Records list.  For my AMT, I have 42,920 people and 20,617 Record Hints.  I know there are more, but Ancestry seems to dole them out a bit every day.  Sources up to 55,393.

*  Worked in the 1930 census, adding content and sources for the V and S and some C names.  

*  At 5:15 p.m., went in for dinner, read the paper, and watch the baseball game.  Giants eventually won 6-3 on a walkoff homer in the 9th.  So the Series is set KC vs. SF.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to do more sources in the 1930 census, then worked on the 52 Ancestors post.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked in on Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
