Genealogy Journal - 08/21/08

I was able to get in a fairly full genealogy oriented day.

It didn't start until about 9:30 a.m. when Lori and the boys took off for Sea World for the day with their friends. I read my email and blogs, and started posting like a crazy blogger - Was this a real obituary?, then Need more genealogy blogs to read?, then Checking Out WebTree-com - Post 3.

I broke for lunch and checked Facebook while munching on choc chip cookies, grapes and choc pudding. Back at it, I posted Practice Reading Old Handwriting, The Beginning of CVGS, Lineage Society for Descendants of Early Settlers of Spanish-Mexican Land Grants, and Index to Families of Spanish-Mexican of Early California, 1769-1850, Volume 1, Surnames G to K on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. Back on Genea-Musings, I posted Most Wives married and most Children sired? If history is any indication, this post promises to be one of the most popular ever! I entered the information I had on Project M into FTM 16, printed out a list of persons, and then went looking in online databases for birth and death dates for the ones I had on the list. I also found several Rootsweb WorldConnect databases for some of the families, so now I have lots more information to enter into the database.

It was dinner time, and Lori and the boys were at their friends, and Linda had a wedding shower to attend, so I ate leftovers in front of the TV. I came back to the computer and did some more online research, then went in at 6:45 to watch the Padres game. I read the Litchman article for the TGSG chat, which was postponed from tonight, during the game. After the game (the Snakes beat us 4-1), I came back to the computer and posted about My Genealympics results - that's the end of the games for me. Lori and the boys came home, and I helped put Lucas to bed - books, teeth, potty and a story. Then I finished this post and I'm going to go to bed early tonight! I think I wrote 10 blog posts today - a record for me!

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 4.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour in WebTree, 1.0 hours doing Project M research, and 2.0 hours entering Project M data into FTM 16.
