My Genealogy Thursday and friday - 9-10 April 2015

One day was good for genealogy, the other one sucked.

1)  Thursday, 9 April 2015

*  Read email and blogs in a hurry, noted that Treasure Chest Thursday - Post 257: 1847 Death Record of Josiah Sawtell of Townsend, Mass.posted.  Wrote It's always the Last Place You Look -- Zachariah Hildreth's (1754-1829) Death Notice and set it for later.

*  We left at 9:40 a.m. for Linda's two doctor appointments.  Got right into the eye doc and everything looks OK.  Went up to the Family doc and had to wait an hour past the appointment time to see him.  We left at 12:50 p.m. for the pharmacy, and then home by 1:15 p.m.

*  Checked email in a hurry, then we left at 1:40 p.m. for El Pollo Loco for Linda's dinner, then on the trolley and the Padres Opening Day game.  We were in Petco before 3 p.m.  The game started at 3:40 p.m.  I had a pizza slice and we had an ice cream too.  Pads lost 1-0 in 12 innings to Giants.  Drat, now 1-3.

*  Back on the trolley, and we were home by 9 p.m.  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, got info added to the 52 Ancestors person, and done.  Genealogy this day was 4.0 hours.

2)  Friday, 10 April 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and wrote 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 67: #73 Josiah Sawtell (1768-1847).  Wrote "Discover Your Ancestors" Magazine - 4th Annual Print Edition and set it for later.

*  Burned through many of my recent Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources to the database.  Added a bunch of England BMD also using FamilySearch databases.

*  Worked in FamilyTreeNow adding some tree persons, then wrote Launches Family Trees.  

*  Wrote the two Saturday posts also.  Answered email, and looked through family photos for Lori.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and eat dinner.  Back online at 6:30 p.m. for awhile, added to the Best Of post and checked Facebook.

*  Back to watch the Padres game at 7:10 p.m. - Pads won 1-0 with a run in the 8th inning.  Used the laptop to read blogs and check Facebook.  Came into the Cave at 9:45 p.m. to read, write this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
