Genealogy Journal - 07/30/08

It's hard to believe that it's the end of July already - time sure flies when you're having fun! I had fun today, and look forward to more fun through the weekend.
I was on the computer by 8 a.m., reading email and blogs. I posted about the Historic USGS Maps of New England and New York site, and downloaded several of my ancestral towns. I checked Facebook, then printed off several pages for the CVGS meeting today. I posted my weekly Family Photographs article, using my great-grandparents off-the-wall picture. I checked for recent databases, and before I knew it, it was time for lunch and to leave for the CVGS meeting at 11:15. I met the speaker at 11:30 in the parking lot, and we went into the library through the back. We got her all set up in the auditorium before the doors opened for the public at noon.

I started the meeting at 12:20, we had our business meeting, and then introduced Ann and she told us about the genealogy collection at Carlsbad library, which is about 45 miles north of Chula Vista, but still in San Diego County. The meeting was over before 2, and I was home by 2:30. I posted Ann Montgomery's "Carlsbad Library Genealogy Collection" Program on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, and then went into the family room to watch TV, read the paper, and take a nap. We had dinner on the patio at 5:15, and I came back to the computer and posted Using FamilyTreeMaker 2008 - Post 10 before going out to cut the front lawn. When I came back in, the Padres game was on and I read a genealogy magazine during the game (we lost 7-3). I came into the computer again, checked email and blogs, and wrote Family Picnics, then this post and I'm done, since Tami and the girlies came at 10:20.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 3.0 hours on CVGS activities, 0.5 hour on Facebook, and 0.5 hour working in FTM 2008.
