My Semi-Genealogy Weekend - 21-22 October 2017

Today was Tami's birthday, tomorrow is my 74th. 

1)  Saturday, 21 October 2017

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, then off to Balboa Park for the SDHC/SDGS Genealogy Day.  A disappointing turnout, maybe 50-60 at most.  I went to Dawn Thurston's keynote which was excellent.  Then I did my discovering Jane's Roots twice for audiences of 7 and 8.  Frustrating.  

*  Home by 1 p.m. to eat lunch, took a nap watching football, then online to note that Surname Saturday -- LNU (Elizabeth married Samuel Ayers, England (?) to New England to New Jersey) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Top 10 (or 20) Surnames in Your Family Tree posted.

*  Wrote the Ancestry and FamilySearch posts.  Added to the Best Of post, and answered email.  Checked Facebook.

*  We left at 4:30 to pick up Linda's swim bag at Martha's, then to Lolita's for dinner and home by 5:30 p.m.  Watched TV news and football

*  Online for a bit to read, but went in at 7:30 p.m. to watch the Aztecs game.  They got romped by Fresno State, so now 6-2 on the season.  

*  didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was 5.5 hours.

2)  Sunday, 22 October 2017:

*  Read email and blogs while watching Meet the Depressed, then off to church at 9:40 and afterwards to Ralphs for groceries and home by noon.  Watched football, ate lunch, tried to nap, read the paper.  Watched the Chargers game - they won 21-0 over Broncos, so now 3-4.

*  Online to read at 4:30, noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 15 to 21 October 2017 posted, and started the Amanuensis transcription.

*  Went in for dinner at 5 p.m., watched TV news, then online at 5:45 p.m. to finish the transcription and write the Amanuensis post.

*  Noted that Added or Updated Databases - Week of 15 to 21 October 2017 and Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 15 to 21 October 2017 posted.  

*  Worked in Ancestry Hints for about two hours, adding content and sources to the database.  Resolved about 350 Hints.  Lots more to do!

*  Read, then wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 4.0 hours.
