Family History Journal - 02/20/08

This was almost a full genealogy day. I had a dentist appointment at 10 a.m., and had lunch at 11:15, but other than that ...

The genealogy day actually started at about 5:30 a.m. when I had a dream - I posted about it in "Dream On" on Genea-Musings later in the day.

I was on the computer by 8:30 a.m. reading my email and Bloglines. I quickly posted "Letters from home - Post 15", then printed some forms, and gathered my stuff together for the CVGS Computer Group meeting today at the library.

I dropped by the Post Office to get the CVGS mail after lunch, and was at the library before they opened. Good thing because Terry, a newbie who might join CVGS walked up and recognized my face from the newspaper article. The doors opened and we had about 15 for the computer group meeting. Three of us took Terry and Harry, another newbie, off to the Conference Room to talk about beginning genealogy - I posted about it here. I got home just before 3 pm., and was on the computer until 5 p.m. writing posts and reading.

After dinner, I answered some emails, read some more, and did more research on the Vaux collateral lines in Ancestry - tracked down the Clarence White family and the Roy Dyar family in the census records. I need to study the article for the TGF group chat on Thursday night, so will cut this short.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 1.5 hours with email and Bloglines, 2.0 hours blogging, 3.0 hours on CVGS activities, 2.0 hours researching on Ancestry, and 0.5 hours on the TGF study.
