Genealogy Journal - 01/12/08

I had looked forward to this day for awhile - the Arlene Eakle seminar was today at the SDGS meeting in Mission Valley.

I was reading my email and Bloglines by 7:30 AM, and posted the "Family Tree Magazine TOC" article (prepared last night) early on. I left at 8:25 for the valley, and was inside the hotel at 8:50. I registered, received my handouts, and wandered inside. I saw several of my CVGS colleagues and quite a few SDGS people I knew. The program started at about 9:15, and I've described the seminar at "SDGS Seminar with Arlene Eakle" in some detail. I got home at about 4:15, just in time to see the end of the Seahawks/Packers game in the snow.

That left about 30 minutes to post the Seminar article before the Patriots/Jaguars game came on, and we ate dinner watching the game.

I got back on the computer at about 8 PM, and checked my email and the TGF blog and wrote some responses. Then I looked on the San Diego Historical Association site and found a lot more historical material than I've seen there before. Cool. I downloaded and printed the latest CVGS newsletter too.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours, of which 0.5 hour was reading email and Bloglines, 7.5 hours was at the SDGS seminar, 1.0 hour was blogging, and 1.0 hour was reading stuff. Obviously, I got nothing really useful done, but it was a good genealogy day! Tomorrow is the Chargers/Colts game, so I may be missing until the afternoon. I hope I'm in a good mood then...
