My Geneaholic Wednesday - 15 October 2014

This was my father's 103rd birthday - but he died 31 years ago.  I am thankful for his great New England ancestry!

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Bowers and Ruth (Seaver) Fischer -- Post 329 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and CGSSD Mini-Fair on Saturday, 18 October and set it for late morning, and Finding Record Hints for Persons in a Specific Database on and set it form id-afternoon.  blogging done!

*  Left at 11 a.m. for lunch at McDonalds, then to the library to stop in with John's group and then the Computer Group, which Gary led.  Was able to help two people with research.

*  Home by 2 p.m. to read, then watched the baseball game and took a short nap.

*  Online at 3:30 p.m. to add 1940 census source citations to the database using the Hints in the specific database method.  

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. to read the paper, watch the Giants game, and eat dinner.  Put out the trash and washed dishes too.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, answer email, then worked more in the 1940 US Census adding content and sources.  Sources up to 55,279.  Added almost 200 today, I think.  Found that not all persons in my big tree have Hints yet - I knew that, so the 1940 census is not finished yet.  Still have lots of Seavers, Carringers, Aubles and Vauxes to go!

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
