My Genealogy Thursday and Friday - November 23-24, 2017

These were fairly lazy genealogy days with lots of sports on TV and little real genealogy research.

1)  Thursday, 23 November 2017:

*  Didn't take Linda to the Y.  Read email and blogs, noted that Happy Thanksgiving!! and I Am Thankful for... and added to the Best Of post.  Answered email.   Noted that 1714 Marriage Record of Samuel Horton and Hannah Atwood in Eastham, Mass. --- Post 391 of Treasure Chest Thursday posted.

*  Wrote Seavers in the News -- True W. Seaver Dies in 1884 and went through some of the Photo Hints on my Ancestry tree - some had good information so I added the content and source to my database.

*  Had lunch, no nap, and watched football.  Chargers beat the Cowboys 28-6.  Cool!  

*  We left at 5 p.m. for dinner at Cafe Lamaze.  It was OK for me, Linda complained it wasn't hot enough.  Home by 7 p.m.

*  Online to write the 52 Ancestors post, then TreeShared.  Added to the Best Of post, and answered email.  Checked Facebook.  Genealogy this day was 6.0 hours.
