Genealogy Journal - 05/19/08

This was a Jekyll and Hyde day. Genealogy dominated the first half, and was not present in the second half!

After reading email and blogs, I got busy and wrote "Military Collection FREE on Ancestry" and "The Most Important Announcement at NGS Conference." I worked on the Tyler investigation for awhile before lunch, then went off to the library after lunch to attend the Table Talk. When I got there, new member Ellie was there and the two ladies who I helped several weeks ago were there also. I got Frances and Linda started on the computers and then talked to Ellie for quite a while - she has a book about her mother's life in the works. John and Dearl were there too and the talked to Julie who dropped by.

I was home by 2:30, and spent an hour finding census records and printing them for Frances (she couldn't see the attachments clearly that I sent to her - they are not clear images!). I also looked for her family in the family trees but didn't have much luck. Linda called me i and said there was an explosion at the hotel across from Petco Park and I went in to watch it on TV, and fell asleep reading the paper. After one last email check, it was time to leave for the Padres game at 5 p.m. We went to Panera for dinner, rode the trolley in, and were at our seats by 6:45. The Padres lost 8-2 to the Cards and it wasn't that close. We were home by 10:30, and I did email and blogs and this post and I'm off to bed.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours at the library doing CVGS consulting, and 2.0 hours doing research for other folks.
