My Genealogy Life - 02/12/08

This was an early wakeup day - I had to get my neighbor to the outpatient hospital by 6:15 a.m., but I was home by 7 and on the computer by 8 a.m.

After reading my email and Bloglines, I posted "Letters from home - Post 7" on Genea-Musings. I then posted the "Genealogy in the Information Age" musing about ESM's article - it really hit home, and I'm always impressed by the depth and breadth of her work. I had more work to do on the Vaux collateral lines, so I searched the census records until after noon, when I stopped for lunch.

After lunch, I created the next batch of "Letters from home" posts so that I have a stock through the weekend. Then I posted "Genea-musings Limericks - not mine" with limericks written by other more poetically gifted than I. I updated my database with some of the information gleaned yesterday and today about David and Leava Smith, and also the Loucks family line. The newspaper guy called and wants to do a phone interview on Wednesday with me. Linda needed the computer at 4, so I went in and watched the news and finished my spy novel.

After dinner, I was on the computer by 6:30 p.m. Tomorrow is our Research Group meeting, and so I researched and wrote up the Genealogy news for the last month - I'll post it on the CV Genealogy Cafe blog tomorrow and email it to my CVGS colleagues. Then I added the limericks sent by Terry and Bill to the limerick post, and spent about an hour trying to write limericks about myself - Linda says that I'm too logical and not very lyrical - she's probably right! She needed the computer again, so I went in and watched The Mormons on PBS, and then American Idol for awhile, and did the dishes.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours, of which 1.5 hours was reading email and Bloglines, 3.0 hours was blogging, 1.0 hour was CVGS related, 1.0 hour was trying to write limericks, and 4.5 hours was researching collateral lines.
