My Genealogy Friday - 11 September 2015

This was pretty much an all genealogy day until the evening when the Padres stunk.  Arggghhh.  Another warm day - 93F in the back yard this afternoon, still 87 F in the geneacave at 10 p.m. tonight.  Should cool off soon...

*  Read email and blogs, wrote 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 89: #109 Mary (Palmer) Vaux (1790-ca 1845) and then 5th Grade Class Project - Postcards from Afar and set it for later and also Good News from everyStory - FREE Mobile App for iOS Devices and set it for later.

*  Checked several more states for probates and wills, but didn't find any of much value.  Searched for Natvig in Wisconsin in the census and marriage records and didn't find much.  They hid pretty well for at least 20 years.

*  Searched for Palmer records in Somerset baptisms and marriages, and didn't find anything new.  No real clue as to Mary's parents.  Perhaps they are in parish registers not yet indexed or digitized.

*  Researched Amos Underhill a bit and wrote his 52 Ancestors post for next week.

*  Researched and wrote Big Winner!!! Will of Matthias Trimmer (1722-1793) of Roxbury, New Jersey and set it for later.  Checked Facebook - got some responses for Lauren's postcards and answered email.  Went in at 4:30 p.m. for a 30 minute nap.

*  Up at 5 p.m. to at dinner, watch TV, and read the mail.  Online at 6:10 p.m. to read, then write the two Saturday posts.

*  Went in at 7:15 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, then my Clark book, and wash the dishes.  Padres lost to the Giants 9-1 and it wasn't that close.  So now 67-75, and hopeless.

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
