Genealogy Journal - 09/06/08

This was an actual genealogy research day - the first one in awhile for me.

I was up early and read my email, my blogs, Facebook and posted What web sites help you with your research? before leaving before 8:30 a.m. to go to the parking garage and picking up my 6 CVGS colleagues for our research trip to Carlsbad Library. We got there right at 9:30 a.m., and found 7 others already there. We left at 2 p.m. and I was home by 3 p.m. (it's about 40 miles from Chula Vista). I watched the SDSU-Notre Dame game to the end, then watched the Padres game until the 8th inning, when we went out to dinner (Daphne's for gyros and then ColdStone for ice cream). We were home by 7 p.m. I watered the plants, and watched TV until Linda was done on the computer. I sorted out my papers from Carlsbad, and posted Where did the time go? about my research work today. I got intrigued by the potential royal lines, and found several WorldConnect databases with essentially the same info as Roberts' book. I checked Facebook again, browsed the web for awhile, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, 4.5 hours at Carlsbad Library, and 1.0 hour checking out WorldConnect royal lines.
