So, Saturday is supposed to be the day we do all our house work and end up with a clean house, right? Well....... I did do some laundry, changed the sheets, cleaned up the kitchen a little. Other than that, well, the house is the just the same as before. I was simply not in the mood to do any cleaning, what can I say? Thank goodness the house is at least neat!
What I did instead was get so totally engrossed in family history that I did nothing else - other than the few items listed above. I had an email question to answer and that always takes a little time, because I am checking myself to make sure I have everything correct. I completed the paper files on my four grandparents - printing out the documents, etc. I realized that I didn't really want to have an internet link be the only documentation for my information. Just in case, you never know!
Then I started checking the leaves on Ancestry. I currently have over 4000 leaves (possible links to information). I started on the Hutchins line, Bill's mother's line, and found quite a bit. It all takes a lot of time - finding the link, evaluating whether it is correct person and information, entering the information in my RootsMagic file, etc., etc., etc. I write a lot of notes on each person's file. I found a few new tidbits of information, but most of it is supporting what I already knew. I have become such a fiend about wanting documented information that I like finding other sources to support the same information.
Anyway, that was my day! I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it wasn't exactly what I was supposed to be doing. Oh, well. We all have to have some days of enjoyment!
