My Genealogy Tuesday - 21 November 2017

It was a pretty full genealogy and family history day.  I wish there had been more family history.

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, picked her up and we went to the grocery store.  Home by 9:50 a.m.

*  Noted that Treasure Chest Tuesday -- 1806 Marriage Record of Thomas Morley and Jane Bury in Bolton-le-Moors, Lancashire posted, and wrote   MyHeritage Adds New York Newspapers and Marriage License Records.  Rested my eyes for 30 minutes.

*  We left at 11:15 a.m. for Carlsbad, and got to In 'n' Out by 12:05 p.m.  Waited for Tami's family to get there around 12:30.  Had lunch, talked to the kids some, and we left at 1:30 to head home.  It's not enough time to spend quiet time with each of them, and listen to their life experiences.  I wish we had gone up to Huntington Beach for the night.  A lesson learned.

*  We got home by 2:10 p.m., and I read, added to the Best Of post, and wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 21 November 2017.  Answered email, and dozed a bit in my computer chair.

*  Online at 4:30 p.m. to read, then checked on Twitter and Facebook, and worked some in FamilySearch Family Tree.  We had soup and fruit for dinner, watched TV news and read the paper.  

*  Online at 6:45 p.m. to read, then wrote the Wordless Wednesday post, and did more in FSFT matching people to my RootsMagic database and adding content to both.  I usually add more to the FSFT profiles, but sometimes that has more info than my RM profiles.   

*  Went in at 8 p.m. to watch Finding Your Roots.  I really enjoyed it.  The DNA findings were crucial, and fascinating. After the big ancestor chart reveal, I knew that I was a cousin to both Gaby Hoffmann and Tea Leoni. I share Henry II (my 23rd great-grandfather) with Gaby, and Charlemagne (my 39th great-grandfather) with Tea. They are both in my RootsMagic database along with my line from them. I told Linda that they were my cousins...and she said "wow, how do you know that?" I said "research over 30 years..." and "almost anyone with European ancestry is a descendant of Charlemagne, and almost anyone with English ancestry is a descendants of royals."  I was disappointed that they didn't show Tea's Leoni (I assume Italian ) line.  Not enough time.  Oh well.

*  Online at 9 p.m. to write something on Facebook, then write this post, and I will TreeShare.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
