My Genealogy Friday - 26 January 2018

This was an all-genealogy day - I didn't even get a nap!  But I got more things done.

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up, we went to the grocery store, home by 9:45 a.m.

*  Added to the Best Of post, noted that 52 Ancestors - Week 211: #290 Jonas Prescott (1703-1784) of Westford, Massachusetts posted and wrote New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, 26 January 2018.

*  Got the laptop resolution dialed down to 1366 x 768, and figured out how yo work with LibreOffice - it's different from the desktop.  Got the RootsMagic database and Ancestor Files onto the laptop and then linked media files on the USB drive.  Ready for Saturday!

*  Had lunch, printed off the map and handouts for the presentation, and the questions for the RM group.  Wrote Genealogy News Bytes - 26 January 2018.  Checked Twitter and Facebook.

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday post, and worked in Family Tree to get up-to-date info in the RM file, plus matching with FSFT.  Answered email.  Managed to delete my Inbox - went into Trash and found some of the most recent emails.  Drat.

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, read the paper, watch TV news and wash dishes. 

*  Online at 6:30 p.m. to read, then wrote the SNGF post.  TreeShared about 80 persons in RootsMagic, still about 120 to go.  Matched more Seaver folks with FSFT, adding content both ways as required.

*  Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 10.0 hours.
