My Genealogy Weekend - 11 and 12 April 2015

This was a busy weekend, but not too busy genealogy-wise.

1)  Saturday, 11 April 2015;

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - FISHER (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted.  Watched/listened to the first two of DearMYRTLE's Amesbury classes while I was here.

*  Left at 9 a.m. for San Diego and the SDGS meeting.  Heard Dave Tooley on civil War photographers and more.  Meh.  

*  Home by 12:45 p.m. to read, note that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - The "When I Was Young" Genea-Meme, Part 2 posted.  Watched/listened to the last two of the Amesbury talks.  Added some souerces for the Chorley and Bolton families from the English parish/IGI records on FamilySearch.

*  We left at 3:40 p.m. for In n Out for dinner, then the trolley to Petco Partk.  We were in our seats by 5 p.m., watched the game, and Padres wiped up the Giants 10-2 on 20 hits.  A fun game!  We are now 1-1 in person in 2015.  Pads are 3-3 on the season.  We even stayed for 10 minutes of the laser show, but then got the 9:30 trolley home, and home by 10 p.m.

*  Read, checked Facebook, and not much else.  Genealogy this day was 6.5 hours.

2)  Sunday, 12 April 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs - April 5 to 11, 2015 post.  

*  We went off to church at 9:30 a.m., back by 11:30 a.m.  Watched TV, ate lunch, checked mail and blogs at 12:30 p.m. but nothing more.

*  Went in at 1:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and dozed a bit.  Pads won 6-4 in an up and down game.  Pads now 4-3 on the season.  

*  Online at 4:15 p.m. to read, then wrote Added or Updated Databases at - Week of April 5 to 11, 2015 and the FamilySearch post for Monday.  Found some pics for Lori and sent them to her.

*  Went in for dinner at 5:15 p.m., watched TV news, watered the front yard, washed dishes.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then wrote up the SDGS program notes and emailed them.  Then transcribed a will for the Amanuensis Monday post.  Checked Facebook and Google+.  Worked a bit in FamilySearch Family Tree in the Colby and Bartlett families matching folks.  Found some differences in several family which need investigating.

*  Wrote this post.  Will watch WDYTYA tonight too.  Genealogy today was 6.0 hours.
