My Genealogy Saturday - 19 May 2018

Why can't I sleep past 5 a.m. on presentation days?  It's really frustrating.  I was tired all day. 

*  Dropped Linda at the Y, went to my men's breakfast, picked up Linda at 9 a.m., and got to church by 9:20 a.m.

*  Tried to hook my laptop up to the VGA cable on the stage and that didn't work.  I have no idea why.  So I hooked it to the VGA cable at the back of the room, used my clicker, and talked to the slides on the screen from the stage.  It worked out OK, I guess.  The audience of 30 seemed to enjoy the talk - lots of questions.  We had lunch there, and were home by 12:45 a.m.

*  Online to add to the Best Of post, noted that Surname Saturday - EDDY (England to colonial New England) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - What Did Your Mother Love To Do? posted.

*  Went in at 1:15 p.m. and dozed in the recliner watching college softball.  Online at 2 p.m. to write the FamilySearch and Ancestry posts.

*  Went in at 3:30 p.m. to watch the Preakness, then the Padres game.  Read the paper, ate dinner, washed dishes.  The Padres won 6-2 over Pirates, so now 19-28 on the season. 

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, noted that Added or Updated Record Collections at - Week of 13 to 19 May 2018 posted.

*  Worked in the Project tree trying to add content - persons, events, sources.  Added several families of siblings of the ancestors.  TreeShared twice.  I may not make much more progress finding ancestors - now I need to collect records from online and digital microfilm to support the presentation.

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 5.0 hours.
