My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 13-14 September 2015

Finally, our sports teams are on a roll.  It was about 90F in Chula Vista on Sunday, but only about 85F on Monday so we're cooling off, and may have some rain on Tuesday.

1)  Sunday, 13 September 2015

*  Read email and blogs on my phone before we left for church at 9:30 a.m.  Home by 11:30 a.m. to watch football.

*  Read a bit, noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 6 to 12 September 2015  posted.  Worked on Ancestry a bit, getting ready for the blog post.

*  Went in at 1 p.m. to watch the Chargers game.  Started off poorly, behind Lions 21-3 in the 2nd quarter.  It was 21-10 at the half, and we got up to 33-21 before Lions scored a late touchdown for the 31-28 final.  Defense played well, offense was poor the first half, excellent the second half.  Padres lost 10-3 to Giants - a terrible game.

*  Online at 4:15 p.m. to read, then wrote Added or Updated Databases at - Week of September 6-12, 2015.  Wrote the FamilySearch post for Monday.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch football, eat dinner, and then news.  Online at 6:15 p.m. to transcribe a will and write the Amanuensis post for Monday.  Wrote next week's surname Saturday post too.

*  Checked Facebook, answered email, and went in and watched more football, then the news, and read my book.  Genealogy on Sunday was only 3.5 hours.

2)  Monday, 14 September 2015

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Amanuensis Monday - Post #285: 1755 Will of Peter Martin (1693-1756) of Piscataway, N.J. posted.  

*  Joined Mondays With Myrt and we talked quite a bit about probate records, transcribing, abstracting, and paleography.  Stayed on for another hour talking about MwM.

*  Noted that New or Updated Record Collections at - September 7 to 13, 2015 posted.

*  Answered email, checked out several new websites, cleaned up the kitchen mess (Linda dropped a coffee pot), then wrote a blog post for Friday.  Researched and wrote Winner: A Twofer in Ancestry's New Jersey Wills and Probate Collection, But!

*  Checked Google+ and Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and who knows what else.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, football and eat dinner.  Online at 6 p.m. to answer email, watch more football, and watch the Padres game.  Came in at 7:15 p.m. to write the next SNGF post.

*  Went in at 8:30 p.m. to watch the Padres game,and read my book.  Pads won 10-3 over Arizona, so now 68-77.

Online at 10:10 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.  Genealogy this day was 9.0 hours.
