My Genealogy Thanksgiving Day - 24 November 2016

This was a blog-free day until this post.  I need one every once in awhile.  It was a quiet Thanksgiving here in the Cave.  I did a lot of Seaver hunting in Ancestry and other sites.  That's fun for me.

*  Linda didn't go to the Y, so I was lazy until like 9 a.m. when I read email and blogs on the tablet, then came in on the desktop and noted that My Mayflower Connections - Soule, White, Warren, Cooke, Brewster, Hopkins and Fuller and I Am So Thankful... posted.

*  Started hunting Seaver folks on Ancestry, and added several families based on a random search, adding content and sources as I went.  Also matched about 100 folks from one Seaver line in FamilySearch Family Tree, and exchanged info on some of them.

*  Had lunch, noted that 1721 Marriage Intentions Record of James Hildreth and Dorothy Prescott of Chelmsford, Mass. - Treasure Chest Thursday #341 posted.  Worked on Seavers some more, then took my nap.

*  Online at 2:30 to continue the Seaver hunt.  We left at 4:15 p.m. for dinner at Black Angus.  I had the traditional turkey and mashed and sweet potatoes, but Linda couldn't have that due to allergies and she had a steak, which is never hot enough and/or is too well done.  We were home after 6.

*  Watched a bit of football, read the paper, put out the trash cans, and then back to the computer to write the 52 Ancestors post, then talked to Lori for 45 minutes.

*  Added to the Best Of post, answered email, checked Facebook, and I'm in a tryptophan haze, so I'm probably going to bed early.  Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
