FindMyPast Fridays – May 3, 2019

I normally like it when FindMyPast posts FindMyPast Fridays on Thursdays – Yesterday was an exception as they posted a blank article. I originally scheduled this post for 8:08 A. M. this morning on the belief they would fill in the article sometime before I got offline last night. I do my best to schedule my FindMyPast Fridays post as my first Friday post when FindMyPast posts it on Thursdays.

I woke up early this morning and about 2 minutes before this blank post was set to go live, I noticed FindMyPast had updated the above link with text. However, there was no way to do what I needed to do before the post went live. So, I rescheduled it for later today and substituted a different post for 8:08 A. M.
