Family History Journal - 03/05/08

It was a beautiful day, so what did I do? I spent most of it inside working on genealogy things. I did go out for a bit, as we'll see.

I was on the computer by 8:30, and read my email and blogs on Bloglines. I posted "SDGS Meeting on Saturday features Kathleen R. Trevena" and then did some research to answer another query about living people - I found an obituary and a contact number for my queryist. I printed off several CVGS papers and organized my pack for later, then posted "Descendants of Sam and Mary Ann - Post 7" about their son, Amos Vaux. Sad...

Then it was a quick lunch at home, and I was off to the post office to get CVGS mail then to the library for the board meeting at noon. We were done before 2 p.m. and I was home by 2:30. I read email and blogs, then Linda wanted the computer and I went in and read the paper and took a nap before dinner.

After dinner, I was back on at 6:30 p.m. I wrote an email to the CVGS members, then wrote my newsletter articles and emailed them off to the editor. I posted two articles on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. I decided to finish the research on Della's list of grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Samuel and Mary Ann Vaux, and created a post to put up tomorrow. Then I input data for several census years for two families in my database. That completes the census data for the descendants of Samuel Vaux (finally).

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours, of which 1.5 hours was reading and writing emails and reading blogs, 1.5 hours was blogging, 4.0 hours was CVGS business, and 3.0 hours was researching and entering data in my database.
