Genea-Journal - Thursday, 6 August 2020

I feel like I managed my day poorly.  There was no Padres game tonight and I figured that I could write 3 blog posts today, plus do the Friday 52 Ancestors, resolve hundreds of Hints, and get about 50% of the CVGS Newsletter done.  I did 2 blog posts and the 52 Ancestors post, and now I'm behind schedule on CVGS.  OTOH, they don't pay me to do it so if it's a day late, so be it, I guess!

*  Read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1707 Marriage of John Plimpton and Susannah Draper in Medfield, Massachusetts posted.  Checked the AncestryDNA matches (0 added).

*  We left at 9:15 a.m. for Linda's eye appointment.  It took over an hour to pick out frames, and home by 12 noon.  Had lunch.

*  Added to the Best Of post, wrote Seavers in The News - Colonel George Seaver Dies in 1938 in San Francisco and took a nap.

*  Online at 2:45 p.m. to read, then answer email, and checked Twitter and Facebook.  

*  Started the 52 Ancestors profile and needed to do some editing and finding of records.  

*  Went in at 5 p.m. for dinner, watched TV, read the paper, did the dishes.  Took Linda for a walk for the first time in two weeks.  

*  Worked on the 52 Ancestors post, downloaded the father's probate file, and wrote up a summary.  Lori called and we did a Duo call too - she showed off my new grand-kitty.  Finished that, and checked blogs and Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
