My Genealogy Tuesday and Wednesday - 17 and 18 May 2016

I didn't journal last night because we got home late from the Padres game at 11 p.m.  These were two stay-at-home genealogy days until the Padres games.

1)  Tuesday, 17 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Tuesday - Henry White (1824-1885) Civil War Draft Registration Record.

*  Finished up the presentations and handouts for Saturday, and put them in Dropbox.  Forgot to fire up the laptop and get them ready to deliver.

*  Researched the Aubles a bit and wrote Making Progress on My Auble Cousins - Post 8: Nathan Auble's Descendants.  Had lunch and took a nap.

*  Online at 3 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and research the other heirs that were not Aubles.  Slim pickings - didn't find much.  Checked Facebook.  Found and downloaded the Henry Smith probate papers.

*  We left at 5 p.m. for the trolley, ate dinner at the Tin Fish and were in our seats at Petco by 6:30 p.m.  Padres lost to the Giants 5-1, so now 17-23 on the season, and we are 2-4 in attendance.  Got the 10:15 trolley and home by 11 p.m.  Genealogy this day was 8.0 hours.

2)  Wednesday, 18 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Visiting Queenstown NZ #2 -- Post 413 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday and Family Discovery Day at Chula Vista LDS Stake on Saturday, 21 May.

*  Researched and wrote You Should Browse Probate Records on - Don't Rely on Only the Index.  Took my nap.

*  Added the other heirs to my Auble tree on Ancestry to get the Hints, and followed some trails to try to find connections to the Aubles.  Didn't find any - maybe they were family friends?

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to eat dinner and watch TV.  Put out the trash.  Online at 6 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and work some more in the Auble tree on Ancestry.

*  Went in at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper and then my book, which I think I've read before, then checked email, blogs and Facebook on the tablet.  Padres lost 2-1 to the Giants so now lost 4 in a row and are 17-24 sinking deeper into last place.

*  Online at 9:45 p.m. to read, answer email and write this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
