Genealogy Journal - 05/21/08

The front end of the day was all genealogy related, the back end was all Lolo related.

After reading email and blogs, I posted about Family Tree Builder. I played with it a bit more, and then worked for awhile in Family Builder on Facebook - I'm unimpressed so far. I saw a link to census forms on so I explored the site for awhile. I worked on several email requests for information in my Seaver database, and sent several emails off with reports attached. Then it was lunch time and I got ready to go to the Library.

I stopped by the post office and picked up the mail, then attended the Computer Group led by Shirley at the Library. We pecked around the new Ancestry databases but I didn't make much progress. Before closing, Frances came and we talked in the Conference Room about her research - I gave her prints from the census records I had. I was home by 2:30, and posted "Family Photograph - Post 6" shortly thereafter. Then I posted about the census forms on Linda needed the computer and I went in to read and watch TV.

We left at 4:30 to pick up Lolo at her friend's house, went to Chick-Fil-A for dinner and playtime, Wal-Mart for bird seed, Ralph's for waffles, and were home by 7 in time for the Padres game. They lost 11-3 to the Cards, with two key players getting hurt. It can't get much worse... It's 10:30 now, and Lolo has been up and down for 90 minutes, and is still not showing signs of going to sleep.

Genealogy today was 6.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading/writing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour writing blogs, 1.0 hour playing with FTB and FB, 0.5 hour checking out GenealogyGenius, and 2.5 hours at the CVGS meeting.
