My Geneaholic Thursday - 26 March 2015

I stayed home and did little else today, and feel like I wasted a lot of time.  Didn't work on the presentations.  Drat!  It was warm, around 85 F.

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 255: 1798 Direct Tax Assessment for Zachariah Hildreth (1754-1820) in Townsend, Mass.

*  Answered email, especially Charlie's about John Seaver's 1778 parentage.  Lots of hypotheses, no records.

*  Checked out Wunderlist, and couldn't figure out how to use it.  Pffft.  Listed to-do items in Evernote.  That works better.

*  Explored AncestryDNA matches related to Charlie - didn't find his matches on my list.  Checked out some of my surnames too.

*  Had a contact on MyHeritage about the Kinnekau couple - found more records that say it's Kennehan.  Edited to the latter.

*  Looked for more Zachariah Hildreth data.  Edited his profile a bit.

*  Wrote Example Source Citations for the New York City Birth, Marriage and Death Indexes on FamilySearch because I had nothing better to write about.

*  Watched Pat's HOA with Angie on FTDNA.  Checked out my FTDNA matches again.  nothing much new there.  

*  Checked Facebook, found old "Other" messages, answered one about a Seaver.  There are several more.  Just added the last week or two, but they go back to 2010, from users who are not friends, but asked a question about genealogy.

*  Went in at 5:45 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner, read the paper, and wash dishes.  Watched NCAA tourney games.

*  Online at 7:15 p.m. to work on the 52 Ancestors post on Zachariah Hildreth.  Got it done.  Worked through the NYC births for Seaver, adding content and sources.  Sources up to 61,223.

*  Added to the Best Of post, wrote this post, and I'm done.  Genealogy today was 10.5 hours.
