This was a great genealogy day for me - I learned a lot, I made a web site, and blogged...well, maybe I did a little searching.
I was up early, and ready to go out at 7:30. I checked my email and blogs and saw the NYGBS story and started a blog post, but had to leave at 7:50. I went off to my church men's group breakfast in National City, and then left at 9:10 and got to the CGSSD meeting in La Jolla at about 9:35 a.m. The first part was almost over, but the second part with Joel Weintraub was a wonderful presentation on a topic near to my heart - Census Records and how to search them. There was a light lunch and 20th anniversary cake afterwards, and I was home by 12:45 p.m. I checked my email and blogs again.
The Padres game was on, so I watched that, read the paper, opened the mail, took a nap, and was thoroughly disgusted by the 6-5 loss to the Cards (we led 5-0 in the 5th). Arrggghhhh. I came in and posted about the CGSSD meeting and Joel Weintraub's presentation (I liked it!) and then went in and had dinner (Linda went off to dinner and a play with friends). When I came back to the computer, I finished up my post about the NYGBS library collection.
I mentioned the other day that the CVGS web site at Rootsweb got taken down for some reason, and we haven't found out why yet (Tech support at Ancestry notified on 7/14). The society has a Google email account, and I recalled that Google will provide a free web page (100 mb) so I created a new CVGS web site. I transferred quite a bit of web page content to the site, but not the documents, photos, etc. that were linked to the previous site. The site is at http://sites.google.com/site/cvgenealogy/. Tell me what you think of it! I am limited to Google's templates, layouts, colors and fonts, but I was able to put quite a bit up in three hours. I wrote this post and I'm going to go read some of my new book.
Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 2.0 hours at the CGSSD meeting, and 3.0 hours working on the CVGS web site.
