My Genealogy Weekend - 16-17 May 2015

This was a road trip weekend, but significant genealogy activities occurred.

1)  Saturday, 16 May 2015:

*  Read email and blogs, and noted that Surname Saturday -- LNU (married Joseph Hartshorn in colonial Massachusetts) posted.

*  We left at 9 a.m. for Huntington Beach.  I dropped Linda off at Tami's and hurried off to the Whittier Area Genealogical Society meeting.  Got there in time for lunch, got set up, and gave my Probate Records talk at 1:30 p.m. after the business meeting.  There were about 60 in attendance.

*  Drove back to Huntington Beach, got there at 3:40 p.m., took a short nap, and we left at 4:30 p.m. for dinner at Marie Callenders.  After dinner, we checked into the hotel and I got on the Internet for several hours.  Noted that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Where Were Your Ancestors 150 Years Ago? posted and updated the Best Of post.

*  Met Tami and fmaily at Starbucks, then we went to lunch at In n Out, and I took off at 12:15 p.m. for Long Beach and the Questing Heirs Genealogical Society.  They met in a new venue for them, but they were organized and set up was easy.  Gave my Ancestry presentation at 1:15 and the new Pennsylvania talk at 2:45.  Had a 30 minute break in between for snacks.  There were about 50 in attendance.
