Genea-Journal - 11/08/07

It was a pretty quiet day here at the Genea-Manor. Two appointments this morning for car maintenance and financial advice cut down on my endless quest for 24 hours of genealogy. Tonight I decided to watch CSI and ER rather than mindlessly search for strange names on Ancestry, or input more information into my databases.

7:30 AM: Read my email and Bloglines. No one has commented on my music posts at Genea-Musings yet. Oh well. Wrote a Genea-Musings post about Connecting the Dots, based on my work last night trying to find Adam Seaver's parents. Read my politics and sports sites too.

12:30 PM: Back from the appointments and lunch - I wrote up my NFL picks on the Busy Life blog. I also posted "The Best Day of My Life" on Genea-Musings. Then I figured I'd better get on with my scanning project. I worked my way through the last 20 or so loose photos, and even scanned the pages from the first Album (comb-binding, magnetic, with mylar sheets, pictures pasted down). That worked out pretty well - the pages laid pretty flat. The TIF files of the 9 by 12 sheets are 27 mb. If I want to, I can select individual photos using my Photo software and save them too. Then I found the two boxes of stuff that my cousins sent me, and I scanned the diplomas and useful papers from that box also. Finally, I got the big box that had three more albums and some larger pictures in it - more work to do. I'm tired of scanning! News and dinner time.

7:00 PM: Back at it with email. Remembered that I had not posted the SDGS meeting notice on Genea-Musings, so I did that. Then I posted two things on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog that I had written earlier on Genea-Musings. Back to Bloglines to read posts and commented on two of Terry's that were interesting. Even found the San Diego place names book and used it tonight. Now off to statistics, my book and the TV.

Genealogy today: only 7 hours - of which 2.5 hours were blogging.
