My Genealogy Sunday - 20 May 2018

This was a pretty good genealogy day - I think I've solved one mystery with the help of a non-cousin.

*  Read email and blogs before off to church at 9:30 a.m.  Had several kudos about my presentation on Saturday.  One of the pastors is a Richard Warren descendant.  Home by 11:20 a.m.

*  Watched the Padres game, read the paper, had lunch and dozed a bit.  Padres  came from behind with 4 runs in the 9th to win 8-5 over Pittsburgh.  3 in a row, now 20-28.  Pitching is getting better.

*  Online at 2:15 p.m. to read, noted that Added or Updated Record Collections - Week of 13 to 19 May 2018 and Best of the Genea-Blogs - 13 to 19 May 2018 posted.  

*  Transcribed the will and write the Amanuensis Monday post.   Checked out my FamilySearch messages and saw that someone had figured out the Sephrona Kemp mystery.  I think he's right!  I added content to reflect the hypothesis and sourced events.  Sleepy, so took a 30 minute nap.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, washed dishes, and worked out front on the bigger rose bush.  Got it trimmed a bit and then weeded some.  A nice little workout!

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to work on the Sephrona problem some more.  TreeShared the big database.  Then looked for descendants of Joseph Champlin in Family Tree and added quite a few new persons (mostly spouses) and some events.  TreeShared that too so now I will get Ancestry Hints.

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
