My Semi-Genealogy Saturday - 29 April 2017

The only thing genealogy-wise I did today was read blogs, resolve Ancestry hints and research descendants of my ancestors.  A fun day, with a nice lunch and a great Padres game.  I wish every Saturday was this good!

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read email and blogs, picked her up, home to change clothes, and we left at 9:30 a.m. for Harbor Island and the retirement party for our financial advisor, Liz.  Sat with friends and got caught up on family, and had a nice lunch.  The retirement stuff went a little long, but the reminiscences of Liz's life were priceless.

*  We were home by 1 p.m., and I read quickly, noting that Surname Saturday -- COPELAND (England to colonial Massachusetts) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Genealogy Sayings in Latin posted.  Went to the recliner and got a nap while "watching" ESPN draft day.

*  Online at 2:30 p.m. to read, then worked through 233 Ancestry Hints, adding content and sources to my RootsMagic database.  Used suggested records for some to add more to the database.  Email provided info on a Dill family so I added them to the Ancestry tree, got Hints, and added content and sources to the database.  FUN!

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, and then watched the Padres game.  Read the paper, then the Connelly book, and washed dishes.  Padres beat Giants 12-4, so now 10-16 and in 4th place again.  

*  Online to read, add to the Best Of post, and write this post.  Genealogy today 4.5 hours.
