Genealogy Journal - 08/06/08

Today was not a typical genealogy research day, mainly because of the CVGS effort needed and the disruption in the house for repairs and maintenance.

I was on the computer by 8:30 a.m., and posted about the SDGS book auction on Saturday, and then about Barack Obama's family tree. I spent some time copying things for the CVGS board meeting. I consulted with Randy the contractor, talked to the neighbor lady who has yard problems, and had lunch before leaving at 11:40 for the post office and the library.

The CVGS board meeting started at 12 noon, and didn't finish until after 2 p.m. I gave the desk the two sets of flyers to post and put out for handouts. I was home by 2:30 and checked my email and read blogs before posting my Family Photograph of Charlie Auble, my great-grandfather. Then it was time for the Padres game, and I dozed off in the 2nd inning, but I got the paper read, had dinner, read more in the ProGen book, took out the trash, and when the game was over at 7:15, I hurried in and wrote up my CVGS newsletter articles for August. Linda came home as I was getting ready for my ProGen chat, and I had to take her down to church to find her purse. Right where she left it, of course.

We were home by 7:55, and I called the number for the conference call. Sheri, Mark, Tina, Elissa and Jeff were on the call about becoming a professional and developing business plans, but it degenerated into sharing family information, blogging, conferences, and the like. It was over at 9 p.m. I checked Facebook, and then Linda needed to check her email so I went in and watched ESPN and read my mystery book for awhile. When I came back at 10:30, I wrote this post and will stop real soon!

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 3.0 hours on CVGS activities, 0.5 hour on Facebook, and 1.5 hours on ProGen things.
