My Genealogy Sunday and Monday - 24-25 January 2016

Not much and then all day!  Only 7 more days until we leave for RootsTech.

1)  Sunday, 24 January:

*  Read email and blogs while watching TV before going to church, and home by 11:30 a.m.  Watched football, but took my nap in the recliner from 12:30 to 1 p.m.

*  Online between games to note that Best of the Genea-Blogs - Week of 17 to 23 January 2016 posted and to write Added or Updated Databases at - Week of 16 to 22 January 2016.

*  Watched second game, ate dinner, and online at 7 p.m. to read, then wrote two posts for Monday, after transcribing a will for amanuensis Monday.

*  Worked in FamilySearch Family Tree a bit - straightening out Seaver families.  Checked Facebook, and didn't journal.  Genealogy this day was about 4.0 hours.
2)  Monday, 25 January:

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that Gena Philibert-Ortega is Speaker for CVGS Program on Wednesday, 27 January and Amanuensis Monday - Post #304: 1715 Will of Jediah Higgins (1657-1715) of Somerset County, N.J. posted.

*  Joined Mondays With Myrt and discussed my posts about preparing for the FHL, my descendants research plan and the RootsMagic sources series.  

*  Watched the RootsTech Ambassador webinar and added the RootsTech app to the tablet.  The iPhone app is so small, the tablet app looks good and is readable.  I guess that's the winner this time!

*  Had lunch, then added to the Best Of post.  Noted that New or Updated Record Collections at - January 17 to 23, 2016 posted.  Took my nap.

*  Online at 2 p.m. to write Dear Randy: Does RootsMagic Communicate with Ancestry?  Worked awhile on getting my Google Drive files down - was at 12.4 gb now 10.5 gb after deleting items in google Drive Trash.  Who knew that was there?  Read the last 3 NGS mags online and downloaded them and the last 2 NEHGR issues too.  No useful family data.

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner, read the paper, and wash dishes.  Online at 7 p.m. to add to the Best Of post.  Transcribed a probate record for next Monday and wrote the post, and a post for Tuesday morning.  I need to write a post each day for the RootsTech week.

*  Checked Facebook, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.0 hours.
