Genealogy Journal - 09/07/08

This was a typical fall genealogy Sunday - church, baseball, football and not much genealogy.

I got my email and blogs read before church - we went to the 8:45 a.m. contemporary service, and I was home just after 10, so I posted my Best of the Genea-Blogs list for the last week. Linda came home after 11:30 and took off for victorville, so I'm batching it until Thursday.

At 11:15, I went in and watched the Padres game - Chris Young took a perfect game into the 8th inning, he gave up two hits and we won 10-1 over the Brewers. Then it was the Chargers game - which was exciting and frustrating, and turned out badly when the Panthers scored on the last play to win 25-24. I stewed over that for awhile - came in and read email, blogs and Facebook, and went in and made dinner, then went out and cut the front lawn for therapy...I'm seething still.

At 7 p.m., I figured I'd better do something useful so I checked my FTM database against all the info on the New Netherland ancestors I got at the library. The real value of the NN information is the sources they used - I need to get the surname books and the NN-specific books to see what they have about my ancestral families. At 8:45, I went in and watched the Chargers highlights program then took my walk around the block, and came in and checked email and blogs and posted this. I'm done for the night.

Genealogy today was 4.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, and 1.5 hour working in my database.
