Genealogy Pot-Pourri - Week Ending 3 January 2022

  Here are the highlights of my family history and genealogy related activities over the past week.

4)  Worked in the MyHeritage "Matches by source" feature in Rabbit Holes With Randy - Using the MyHeritage "Matches By Source" Feature.

5) AncestryDNA added 0 new DNA matches this past week, but there was one new ThruLines, and MyHeritage added 16 new DNA matches. Reviewed the new DNA matches on AncestryDNA, MyHeritageDNA, FamilyTreeDNA and 23andMe. Researched and added notes for 7 AncestryDNA matches.

6)  There were several sessions working in the RootsMagic software program to match with and update FamilySearch Family Tree profiles for Seaver families and my ancestral families, with occasional additions to the RootsMagic profiles. I have matched 46,603 of my RootsMagic persons with FamilySearch Family Tree profiles (up 217).

7) Used Web Hints and Record Matches from Ancestry, MyHeritage, Findmypast and FamilySearch to add content and source citations to my RootsMagic profiles. I now have 68,033 persons in my RootsMagic file (up 221 from last week), and 143,831 source citations (up 98). I TreeShared 399 new or modified profiles with my Ancestry Member Tree, and I resolved 1681 Ancestry Hints. My newest Ancestry Member Tree has Ancestry Record Hints with 21,274 to be resolved, but I work on them almost daily.  

8) Wrote 19 Genea-Musings blog posts the past week, of which two were a press release. The most viewed post the past week was 
Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- What Are Your 2022 Plans/Goals/Resolutions for Your Genealogy Research with over 319 views.

9) I am still fine here at the Genea-Cave, hunkered down and not going out much after Week 94 of COVID-19 semi-isolation. Linda is at a memory care and skilled nursing facility in Chula Vista 7 miles from home and I visit her for an hour every day - we usually play Uno and she wins about half the time.  I went to Huntington Beach on Saturday to visit Tami and her family - watched football, ate pizza, had some fun with the grandkids, including a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cone!  The Chargers won their game on Sunday.   I went to the grocery store on Monday and Friday. Other than that, it was stay-at-home on the computer doing (mainly) genealogy, plus eating, sleeping, laundry, cleaning, cooking, watching TV news and sports, reading books, napping, and no yard work.
