I spent almost the whole day doing genealogy-related activities. I did have my Rohr/Goodrich Engineers lunch for two hours, watched the news for an hour while eating dinner, tried to chase the crows away from the bird feeder and bath, but other than that it was genealogy, unless it wasn't. The Padres played this morning, but it wasn't on TV (they lost again 4-0).
After reading my email and blogs this morning, I posted the Family Tree Magazine TOC for July 2008, then the ISFHWE winners. That looks like something I might join! Then I went off to lunch.
I was home by 1 p.m., and did my Transitional Genealogist Forum homework - abstracted the article and formulated questions to ask at the chat tonight. I also read the January 2008 issue of Ancestry magazine. I had a query from an Auble researcher who asked if they could use my online genealogy report for their records - so I checked and saw that I had more information to add to my database, so I worked on that for awhile. I checked out the new www.NewYorkAncestors.org web site too. At 5 p.m. I went in to read the paper, watch the news, have dinner, and scare the crows.
At 6, I came in and posted the "New York Ancestors web site" post, then got my stuff together for the chat. The chat began at 7 p.m., and I led the discussion through 90 minutes. I really like these because they stretch each of us, and we get to know several other researchers. It was over at 8:30, and I read my email and blogs again and wrote this post. ER is on tonight, so I'm going to wrap up early.
Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading emails, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blogs, 3.5 hours on TGF activities, 0.5 hour reading Ancestry mag, and about 1.5 hours doing Auble research.
