I guess I can say a week or two. Add another week to update the documentation and the website. Now remember I'm a programmer, so multiply that by 5 and add 3.

Revisiting Missing A-B Matches - Blog entry by lkessler - 1 day ago

I’ve been working away the past couple of months to finish off Version 2 of Double Match Triangulator.

One year ago today, I celebrated my 60th birthday and on the same day I retired from my job of 41 years. Since then, it’s been quite a year. I wonder how I ever had time for a day job. I recently got back from my 4th genealogy conference of the year. In February, I was at RootsTech in Salt Lake City, July at ...

FTDNA’s 13th IGG Conference Lab Tour - Blog entry by lkessler - 13 Nov 2017

#FTDNA2017 – What a great conference! So many people I could talk to at a technical level and so many that I learned from. I averaged less than 5 hours of sleep per night just because the day was so full, every morning was an early wakeup, and I had to watch Saturday Night Live. I left Winnipeg with 5 cm (2 ...

The day began with Max Blankfeld and Bennett Greenspan greeting the entire group. After honoring the veterans, and there must have been 50 in the room who stood to loud applause, they provided a bit of information about the conference. There are 240 in attendance. About 50 people, including myself, raised their ...
