My Genealogy Wednesday - 29 November 2017

This was an all genealogy day, but it was somewhat frustrating.  I didn't do the Bible study work, and I spun my wheels tonight trying to find a record on FamilySearch.  Drat.

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read email and blogs, picked her up, and we went to the grocery store.

*  Home by 9:40 a.m., online to add to the Best Of post, noted that Photos from the 2013 SCGS Genealogy Jamboree - Part 1 -- Post 492 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday posted, then wrote Blaine Bettinger Headlines SDGS Annual Meeting and Seminar - Saturday, 13 January 2018.  Rested my eyes a bit.

*  Collected the artwork, and left at 11 a.m. for lunch at McDonalds (had to go to three of them due to construction), and then to the library for the CVGS program meeting.  Got things set up.  Gave my 5 minute spiel about my mother's copper enamel artwork, and took notes on the rest of them.  Home by 2 p.m.

*  Read email and blogs, went in to the recliner for a 30 minute nap, then online to add to the Best Of post, and wrote Well, Good. Ancestry Explains the Lack of Changes to Number of Collections.  Worked a bit in Geni and FamilySearch Family Tree figuring out my relationship to William Shakespeare.  Checked Twitter and Facebook. 

*  Went in at 5:30 for dinner, watch TV, put out the trash, read the paper and do dishes.

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then spent two hours trying to find the death record of Samuel Horton (1686-1778) in Eastham, Mass. on FamilySearch and Ancestry.  not in either index list, but my notes say it was on a FHL microfilm.  Checked many pages and indexes on that digital film, and no luck.  Time ran out to check every one of about 400 images.  Drat.

*  Wrote the Treasure Chest post for Thursday, and wrote this post.  I may go search some more, or not!  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
