Genea-Journal - Friday, 19 April 2019

I finally opened the Forever box and watched most of the home movies.  Some goodies there.  Have to use the USB drive because the CD/DVD drive won't open on the desktop computer. 

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, home to read email and blogs, added to the Best Of post, and noted that   52 Ancestors - Week 274: #449 Maria (--?--) (Abel) Tedrick (1693-1771) of Germany and Morris County, New Jersey posted.

Picked her up, and home by 9:15 a.m.  The FMP presser never showed up.  Wrote Seeing AncestryDNA ThruLines From Your Ancestry Member Tree Pedigree Chart.  Not a big deal, but helpful.  Took a nap.

*  Had lunch, then worked in MyHeritage record matches adding content to the RootsMagic tree.  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 19 April 2019.  Checked Facebook and Twitter.

*  Broke open the Forever box that came last week, and found the two DVDs and the USB drive.  Put the USB drive in - all 23 files are 3 minutes and about 60 mb.  Watched most of them - lots of talking to myself, berating of the camerafolk, they could have been even better.  Made some screenshots while watching full screen and saved them.  Some are priceless photos - I'll use them for the Wordless Wednesday.  I have no photographs at all of most of the scenes in these movies!  

*  Went in at 5:10 p.m. to eat dinner and watch TV news.  Online at 6 p.m. to write the two Saturday posts, then copied the movies to the external drive.  I need to get them in a cloud drive too, but don't have 1.3 gb to spare.  

*  Went in at 7:10 to watch the Padres game, read the paper, read my book, and wash dishes.  Padres lost 3-2 in the 11th inning to the Reds, now 11-10 and lost 5 in a row.  Drat.

*  Checked email and blogs on my phone, then online on the desktop to write this post.  Genealogy today was 8.5 hours.
