My Genealogy Weekend - 9-10 June 2018

I took Saturday off to visit the grandchildren, but made up for it on Sunday with a big genealogy day.

1)  Saturday, 9 June:

*  Dropped Linda off at the Y, home to read, noted that Surname Saturday -- KING (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted, then picked her up, and home by 9:15.  I took a short nap.

*  We left at 10:15 a.m. for the 102 mile trip to Huntington Beach, but stopped in Carlsbad for lunch at In 'n' Out.  Some traffic problems on I-5, and we got to Tami's at 1 p.m.  Tami took us to the play at 1:30 p.m.  Lauren was Miss Andrew and Audrey was a statue and a chimney sweep.  They did well.  Back to the house at 4 p.m.  Played a bit with Charlie, then we had dinner, and went to the park.  Back for dessert and we left at 6:40 p.m. for home, getting here at 8:15 p.m.  No traffic.  

*  Checked email, added to the Best Of blog post, and noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your Best Genealogy Research Find in May 2018 and Added or Updated Record Collections - Week of 3 to 9 June 2018 posted.

*  Didn't journal, tired.  Genealogy on Saturday was maybe 2.5 hours.

2)  Sunday, 10 June:

*  Read email and blogs, but did n't go to church.  Took a nap at 8:30 a.m. because I didn't sleep well.  

*  Noted that Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 3 to 9 June 2018 posted, added to the Best Of post, and then worked on the CVGS project.  Had some luck finding English parish records for the new great-grandparents, and worked awhile on that.

*  The Padres played in Miami, and won 3-1, so now 31-36 on the season.  I watched last three innings, read the paper, and had lunch.

*  Online to work more on the parish records, then transcribed a will in the "To be filed" directory.  After I did that, I figured out that I did that three years ago.  Drat, I hate it when that happens.  Started transcribing a deed for the Amanuensis post.

*  Went in to help Linda with dinner.  We ate after 6 p.m., watched TV news, washed dishes.  

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to write the Amanuensis post, noted that Best of the Genea-Blogs - 3 to 9 June 2018 posted.  

*  Worked some more on the project, finding family members, baptism and marriage dates/places, etc. for several of the new families, plus adding sources.  TreeShared it so I can get Hints.  Added to the new Best Of post and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
