My Genealogy Thursday - 29 December 2016

Did you miss me?  It's been Christmas week, and I usually disappear on this blog due to family events.

We went to Tami's on Christmas morning and stayed one night.  Had a lot of fun helping Charlie play with the new Paw Patrol train set we gave him.  A big WIN.  We brought all three kids home with us on Monday, and Monday and Tuesday were hectic.  We took them back to Tami in Carlsbad on Wednesday at noon.  I came home and crashed.

I did monitor my email and blogs, and even posted a few articles, but didn't do any research until today.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, came home to read email and blogs, picked her up, and home by 9:10 a.m.  Noted that 1775 Muster Roll for Burgess Medcalf in New Hampshire Revolutionary War Records - Treasure Chest Thursday Post #346 posted.  Wrote SDGS Seminar on 14 January 2017 Features Thomas MacEntee and set it for later.

*  Updated my Presentation Schedule and Amanuensis Monday post pages.  Need to update the Biographies page sometime soon.

*  Researched and wrote Randy's Best Genea-Musings Posts for 2016 and set it for afternoon.  Had lunch, took my nap, and looked at the 52 Ancestors biography.  Lots of work to do!  Checked Facebook.

*  Searched for records, added sources and notes for the events.  Took the rough notes into Notepad and created the biography there - much easier than doing it within RootsMagic!  Learned a new trick!

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to do the laundry, then helped Linda with the gift that came today.  We had dinner, read the paper and watched TV.  Got the laundry done and washed dishes.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to add to the Best Of post, do more research and then wrote the 52 Ancestors post - the start of Year 4.  Who knew it would take so long.

*  Checked Facebook, answered email, added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
