My Genealogy Days - 8 and 9 November 2016

I think I got this one in the right blog tonight.  The last post was put in Genea-Musings first and drew some interesting comments.  Of course, I got the election estimate backwards, at least as Electoral votes went, but that is OK.  I had a fairly peaceful night on Election Night and went to bed semi-happy.
