My Genealogy Monday - 23 February 2015

This was a full genealogy day for me, and even found several new probate records online.

*  Read email and blogs, and updated the Rootstech compendium and the Best Of posts.  Noted that  Amanuensis Monday - Post 256: 1849 Will of John Seaver of Taunton, Bristol County, Massachusetts posted.

*  Joined the Mondays With Myrt HOA and demonstrated Generasi and the Ancestry Beta.  Lots of good discussion this week.

*  Noted that New or Updated FamilySearch Record Collections - February 16-22, 2015 posted.  Wrote My Top 10 Online Genealogy Research Resources  and set it for later. 

*  Worked in responding to discussions from 2014.  In the process, determined that AmericanAncestors had two sets of probate records in Essex County Mass. for Crispus Richards and John Richards, so downloaded them, renamed them, and put them in their family folders.  Also downloaded the Great Migration Begins sketch for Thomas Hazard and put it in his family folder.  Merged all of the test tree folks so that they matched the real tree folks, and all of the tree branches connected.

*  Answered email, checked Facebook.  Went in at 4:45 p.m. for dinner, then left at 5:15 p.m. for the National City library for my library talk.

*  Got to the library at 5:30, and got set up.  The talk went well, but only 10 in attendance.  Good discussion afterwards with attendees on specific problem.  Helped one lady find how to buy a 1917 UK birth record.

*  Home by 8 p.m. to read, then worked in Ancestry to find more family for loose Seaver folks.  Got one connected, more added to another, and failed on one other.

*  Added to the two posts, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
