Randy at RootsTech 2022 - Day 1 Virtual Activities

Between blogging, emailing, trying out new website features, and watching RootsTech sessions, this has been a very busy day!  I did manage to visit Linda for an hour, have lunch, doze in the recliner, and check Facebook for Relatives at RootsTech, but this is post #8 today!

4)  Otherness

*  For those readers that wondered about it, I won't be doing a Genealogy blog Compendium for RootsTech 2022.  I will add a section to the daily wrapup post for notable genealogy blogs about RootsTech.  Why?  Many blogs have been abandoned in favor of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, etc., plus I have other tasks to do.
