My Genealogy Tuesday - 26 November 2013

Two more days until Thanksgiving, 7 more days until Linda's birthday, and 29 days until Christmas.  Wonder what she wants?

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that Legacy Family Tree 8.0 Genealogy Software Released Today posted early this morning.  Wrote Tombstone Tuesday - Mary Ann (Underhill) Vaux (1815-1883).

*  Downloaded material from 23andMe just in case they fold.  Got the raw data, my matches, health stuff, etc.  Not sure I have everything.  Spent some time checking out the matches - vfery few have trees past 2-3 generations.  That's frustrating.

*  Researched and wrote Transferring Media Files Between Software Programs - Post 6: Family Tree Maker GEDCOM Imported Into RootsMagic 6.

*  Washed the furnace filter - had a hard time getting the panel off, then had a harder time putting the filter back in.  It's not flexible!  Watered the front plants too.  Linda fed the piggies carrots and they pooped some more on the towel.  

*  Worked in John's tree for awhile, finding Find A Grave images and source citations, and adding images from FamilySearch.  Didn't add too many - slow going.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV news, read the paper and ate dinner.  

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and tried to download the new Legacy Family Tree version 8.  It hung up about half way through.  Checked Facebook too.  Posted Help Launch a New Genealogy Fiction Series.

*  Worked in the database on some of James' ancestral families - added quite a few persons with content and sources.  Then started in on the Ed persons in the database and got quite a few updated with content and sources.  

*  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 11.5 hours.
