My Semi-Genealogy Sunday - 2 November 2014

This was my grandfather's (Lyle L. Carringer) 123rd birthday.  He had 85 of them, and was one of the most interesting persons and one of my favorite persons that I have known.  I have so many artifacts of his - magnifying glass, drawing tools, pocket watch, etc.  And his love for geography, stamps and family.  Plus a wonderful German and English ancestry!

*  Up  early with standard time, read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - 26 October to 1 November 2014 post.  

*  Didn't go to church - stayed home to watch the Chargers-Dolphins game.  The first 3 minutes were fine, the rest of the game not so much!  We lost 37-0.  Fumed all morning.  Walked a bit too around the house.

*  Online at 1:15 p.m. to read, then added some Ancestry Hunts to the database.  Found some Find A Grave matches that weren't found before.

*  Went in at 3:15 p.m. to watch football, read the paper and take a nap.  Ended up eating dinner and washing dishes too.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then wrote two posts for Monday, and worked in Ancestry on the Ho-Hu surnames.  Got down to Humphrey.  Sources at 56,405.

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 6.0 hours.  Really slacked off, eh?
