My Genealogy Saturday - 10 October 2015

This was a fairly full genealogy Saturday, I even got some research work done.  Hot again today - 99F in Chula Vista.

*  Didn't read email or blogs, left at 7:45 a.m. for the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park.  Was inside by 8:15 a.m.  Met Ken and got my computer set up by 8:45 a.m. for the 10:15 talk.  Went to CeCe's talk - it was excellent.  Only about 80 were there - too bad, there was room for 200.

*  Back to my venue, got turned on and ready to go at 10:15 a.m. and did my first Social Media talk.  Only 25 or so there.  Then did it again at 11:30 a.m.  Seemed to go OK.  Packed up, visited a bit in the exhibit area, and was home just after 1 p.m.

*  Had lunch, finally read email and blogs, then took an hour nap.  Online at 3 p.m. to read, check Facebook, noted that Surname Saturday -- LARKIN (England to colonial Massachusetts)  and  Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Ancestors Who Migrated a Long Way posted.  Went in at 4:30 p.m. to watch the Cubs/Cards game.  Read the paper, we had dinner, and I watered the front plants.  Watched the first three innings of the Dodgers/Mets game.

*  Online at 7:30 to read, then worked through about 100 Ancestry Hints and added content and sources to the database.  Sources now at 65,640.

*  Went in before 9 p.m. to watch the end of the Dodgers/Mets game, then watched the first half of the Aztecs/Hawaii game.  Aztecs winning 21-7 at the half.

*  Online at 10:30 p.m. to read, check Facebook and write this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
