Genealogy Journal - 06/07/08

Hey, today was 6-7-08... how about that? They add up to 21. That knowledge and $1 will get you a taco at Taco Bell.

This was not a genealogy day - except for the newspaper article published in the San Diego Union-Tribune about CVGS, which I posted about on Genea-Musings and on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe.

I was up early and read my email and blogs before 7 a.m., and the newspaper article too! Then I went off to my Men's Bible Study breakfast in National City, and from there to church for the evangelism retreat program at 9 a.m. That was over a noon, so I was home by 12:30 and posted about the newspaper article. I read email and blogs, watched the England Research Webinar on Ancestry, then wrote "Free Ancestry Webinars."

I went in to watch the horse race, then took a nap, watched the news, and had dinner. I was back on the computer at 6, but had some financial things to do, but then looked at the Texas Death certificates on FamilySearch Record Search and printed a bunch of Seaver ones off for input to my database. Many of them have parents names, birth dates and birth places, and this data will be a fine addition to my Seaver database. Unfortunately, I don't have any Texas ancestors, but I know several people who do! It was 7 p.m., and I went in and watched the Padres game (we won 2-1 over the Mets - 4th 2-1 win in a row!).

Genealogy today was maybe 4.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 1.0 hour watching Webinars, and 0.5 hour working in the Texas death certificates.
