Genealogy Journal - 1/2/08

Today was a two-bagger - genealogy was CVGS oriented in the morning and blog-related in the afternoon and evening.

I got on the computer at 8:30 AM, and read my email and Bloglines. Then I printed out my agenda and proposal sheets for the CVGS Board meeting today. I left at 9:30, went to the Post Office box for CVGS mail, and got to Wanda/Gary's house right at 10 AM. We had our Board meeting and adjourned to the Quizno's in the Von's shopping center in Bonita at about 12:30. I got home around 2 PM after a nice lunch and conversation with half our Board. Our big issue this month is the change in days and times for our programs, since the Library changed their hours from 10 AM to 9 PM to 12 noon to 8 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays (our meeting days - all at 10 AM previously). We still don't have them nailed down - we need the library calendar person to put them on the calendar. The other big decision was a seminar on Saturday, 5 April.

I got home by 2 PM, and read my email and Bloglines again. Then I posted the Genealogy Software Reviews on Genea-Musings. Linda wanted to use the computer, so I took a nap before dinner.

It was 7 PM by the time I got back on the computer, and so I posted my Elusive Russell Smith post, and then Genea-Musings Stats for 2007. Then I looked for all of my census data for Jefferson County NY, but couldn't find it (buried behind stuff, I fear) so I went on Ancestry and did 1810, 1820 and 1830. Now it's 10:30 and time to stop.

Genealogy today - 10.0 hours total, of which 1.5 was reading email and Bloglines, 4.5 hours was CVGS business, 2.5 hours was blogging, and 1.5 hour was researching census data.
