Genealogy Journal - 06/25/08

Finally a nearly full genealogy day - almost 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. straight through. And a good one, too!

I read my email and blogs, then posted "Sheri Goes to Samford - Post 6" to finish the series. Whatever will I do for my early morning post, I wonder? Something will turn up, I'm sure! I then posted about the CGSSD meeting on Saturday, which I'm going to miss, unfortunately. With morning blogging taken care of, I quickly made the CVGS program agenda masters, the speaker's handout master, and the speaker certificate. I gathered everything up, including my flash drive (just in case something happens...), and went to the copy shop at 10:30. Then to the post office box for the mail, to McDonald's for lunch, to the bank, and to the Library at about 11:30 and into the conference room and auditorium to help set up. The speaker and his wife came in just after me, and we talked for awhile.

The Library doors opened at 12 noon, and I greeted my colleagues and our guests. I started the meeting at 12:20, and introduced the speaker at 12:45 sharp. He gave an absolutely excellent talk and the program went until 2:15 - the time flew. We packed up the conference room and I was home before 3 p.m. I read email and blogs, and worked a bit in the new Wisconsin death records on Ancestry, and then started looking at my colleague Nancy's research problem. Another tough one! At 5 p.m., I went in and watched TV, read the paper, and Linda brought dinner home from Pollo Loco. At 6:30, I posted "DNA 101 - Genetics for Beginners" on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog about our program today. Then it was the Padres game (another loss to the Twins - will Barbara gloat again?) until almost 10 p.m.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 4.5 hours on CVGS activities, and 2.0 hours doing research.
