My Genealogy Tuesday and Wednesday - 3 and 4 May 2016

I didn't journal last night because we got home late from the Padres game.  It's been an eventful two days in genealogy.

1)  Tuesday, 3 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Tuesday's Tip -- MyHeritage Book Collection Searches Are FREE.  Worked on Making Progress on My Auble Cousins -- Post 4: The William Auble Challenges for several hours and set it for later.

*  Had lunch, took a nap, and wrote Updated AncestryDNA Results.  Worked a bit on the Auble folks online, and did some FamilySearch Family Tree too.  Checked Facebook, answered email, and added to the Best Of post.

*  We left at 5 p.m. for the trolley, ate at Tin Fish, into Petco Park by 6:30 p.m., had my ice cream, and watched Padres beat Rockies 6-3.  Now 11-16 on the season, won 4 of 5.  Home by 11 p.m.

*  Read email and blogs, wrote a post, and went to bed.  Genealogy this day was 7.5 hours.

2)  Wednesday, 4 May 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Findmypast Announces Release of Over 10 Million New U.S. Marriage Records posted, and wrote Visiting Christchurch #3 -- Post 411 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday.  Wrote NGS Awards for Newsletter Editorship and Service to NGS and set it for later.

*  Left at 11 a.m. for McDonalds for lunch, the bank, and the library for JKohn's group and then the CVGS Bored meeting.  Lived up to its name.

*  Home by 2:15 p.m. to watch the end of the Padres game, they lost 2-0 to Rockies, so now 11-17.  I got a doze in the recliner.

*  Online at 3:15 p.m. to write NGS 2016 Conference Blog Compendium and then The "All The Stories" App for FamilySearch Family Tree and set it for later.

*  Answered email, added to the Best Of post, and checked Facebook.  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news and eat dinner, put out the trash and washed dishes. Facetimed with Tami and kids too.

*  Online at 7:15 p.m. to read, then added to the NGS post, and worked in 1920 US Census Hints on Ancestry, resolving 24 of them, adding content and source citations to the database.  Glad to have that back to work on.  Sources now at 72143.

*  Checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
