My Genealogy Saturday - 26 May 2018

One week from now Jamboree will be over!  This was a fairly full genealogy Saturday for me.

*  Dropped Linda off, home to read, picked her up and home by 9:15.  Gathered my laptop and flash drive and left at 9:25 for the FamilySearch Library.  Got there at 9:45 and it wasn't open.  Huh?  Other people came, one called the director and he got there to open up at 10:30, 30 minutes late.

*  Got set up in the conference room with RootsMagic and we had our user group meeting.  Only 6 attendees.  Discussed different reports and merging duplicate people, and finding duplicate people in Ancestry Member Trees. 

*  I spent an hour using the FSL computers for English parish records I can't see at home.  Downloaded a few records.  None of what I found were the originals - either bishops transcripts or parish record transcripts for Redruth, Cornwall.  Frustrating that!  Ate my pretzels on the way home.

*  Home by 1:30 p.m., added to the Best Of post, but sleepy, so napped in the recliner.

*  Online at 3 p.m. to read, then wrote the FS and Ancestry posts.  TreeShared the big tree, then did the project tree too.  Noted that Surname Saturday -- LUMBERT (England to colonial New England) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Who Is Your Most Recent Unknown Ancestor (MRUA)? posted.

*  Went in at 5:15 p.m. for dinner, watched TV, read the paper, and watered the front plants.

*  Online at 6 p.m. to read, then worked a bit in MyHeritage record matches - went through all of one database record matches adding content and sources to my big tree.  Computer slowed down and wouldn't find websites for some reason.

*  Went in at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game.  Finished the paper, and read my book.  Padres beat Dodgers 7-5 so now 22-31 on the season.  We need a winning streak!

*  Online at 10:25 p.m. and computer still won't work, so rebooted.  Checked stuff on my phone.  Wrote this post.  Genealogy today was 6.5 hours.
