My Semi-Genealogy Friday and Saturday - 8-9 January 2016

I  didn't get a lot done either day, but genealogy events dominated them!

1)  Friday, 8 January 2016:

*  Read email and blogs, wrote 52 Ancestors - Week 106: #129 Sarah (Read) Seaver (1736-1809) and then RootsTech 2016 Announces Keynote Speakers David Isay and Michael Leavitt and Musical Guests the Crescent Super Band, featuring Ryan Innes, and The Lower Lights.

*  Ate lunch, then spent an hour at Bed Bath and Beyond and Wal-Mart trying to find vacuum filters.  No luck.  Came home and ordered them online - shoulda done that last week!

*  Took my nap, then worked on the MyHeritage talk a bit, added some newer Record Matches to the database.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. to watch TV, eat dinner, and read the paper.  Online at 7 p.m. to finish up the CVGS Newsletter, then write the two Saturday posts, check Facebook, and answer email.  Genealogy this day was 8.5 hours.

2)  Saturday, 9 January 2016:

*  Read email but nothing else, left at 7:45 a.m. for the SDGS seminar with John Colletta on Mission Bay.  Four good talks, a box lunch, and a tired Randy.  Checked my email through the day, but not blogs.

*  Home by 4 p.m. to note that Surname Saturday -- WHIPPLE (England to colonial Massachusetts) posted and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Ancestor Score for 2016 too.  Took a short nap watching football.

*  We left at 4:30 p.m. to take stuff to Barbara at the Rehab center.  Went to dinner at El Pollo Loco and home by 7:30 p.m.  Watched footbnall game, read the paper, and read blogs on my phone.

*  Online at 9 p.m. to add to the Best Of blog, finish up the CVGS Newsletter, answer emails, and check Facebook.  Genealogy this day was 8.0 hours.
