My Genealogy Friday - 23 February 2018

It's getting real now - 3 more getups before RootsTech.  I've finally started preparing for it, but need time to work on my FHL to-do list. 

*  It rained hard just as we would leave for the Y, so Linda didn't go today.  I read email and blogs, and noted that 52 Ancestors - Week 215: #294 Samuel Fletcher (1684-1749) of Chelmsford and Westford, Massachusetts  posted.  Added to the Best Of post.

*  Worked on and off all day on the George W. Seaver mystery.  Barry found some newspaper items, and I found some interesting records, and I think we have solved it.  I will write it up sometime soon.

*   Wrote New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, 23 February 2018.  Had lunch, and worked on George some more. No nap.

*  Got the new RootsMagic-To-Go on the flash drive, and the database.  Got it on the laptop too.  Saturday is the RootsMagic User Group meeting at the FHC.  Plus the RootsTech syllabus articles.  

*  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 23 February 2018.  Checked Facebook and Twitter.

*  The family room TV went off, and I called AT&T and DirecTV about it.  Two hours later, including a cold dinner, they couldn't fix it.  A software update now requires new cables from the box to the TV.  They will come next week, so we are without the big TV all weekend.  Crap - spoiled the evening.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and wrote two Surname posts and the SNGF post.  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 9.5 hours.
