My Genealogy Tuesday - 8 December 2015

It was a pretty humdrum day until 3 o'clock when the Ancestry/Family Tree Maker bombshell landed.  Still sick with a cold - cough, headache, sniffles, semi-controlled by the cold medicine.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote MyHeritage Releases Over 150,000 Family History Books - FREE to Access.  

*  Answered email, then worked a bit in FamilySearch Family Tree standardizing place names for my ancestors.  Still lots to do.  

*  Had lunch, worked on the scanning of the trust document for Lori, then took a nap.

*  Online at 1:50 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, and go shopping at Amazon.  Bought the kitchen faucet.  Checked Facebook looking for a blog topic.

*  Email from Ancestry about retiring Family Tree Maker.  Wrote Ancestry.com Announces Retirement of Family Tree Maker Software.  Spent most of the next two hours on Facebook answering questions and commenting.  

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV news, eat dinner, and read the paper.  Online at 6:15 p.m. to read, then worked on the Christmas labels and printing out the letter.  Got 30 done.  Scanned the rest of the trust papers, put them in a Word document, made it a PDF, and sent it to Lori in Google Docs.

*  Worked a bit in Ancestry Hints - resolved 38 of them.  Then checked Facebook, added to the Best Of post, and I'm done.  Tired.  Genealogy today was 9.0 hours.
