Genealogy Journal - 10/15/08

This would have been my father's 97th birthday. I really appreciate his fine colonial New England and English ancestry.

After reading my email and blogs this morning, I posted about the CGSSD Mini-fair on Saturday, even though I'm not going to it. Then I edited my four-generation photograph and posted it in Family Photographs - Post 27: Four Generations. I checked Facebook, edited my Haunted House story a bit, and worked on putting stuff back into the 4th bedroom from the living room. I left at 11 a.m. for the pharmacy, then lunch at McDonald's, the post office box and the library, where the Computer Group started at 12 noon. We had 12 there, including a guest, Mary. I got to share local library databases, catalogs and vital records sites. After the meeting, I spent an hour with Mary on her laptop working in Ancestry trying to find her families in Louisiana. I was home by 3.

I read my email and blogs, then posted the Computer Group summary on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe and on Genea-Musings. I posted a number of funnies and my NFL Picks for week 7 on Randy's Busy Life too. At 5p.m., I went in a put out the trash barrels, watched TV, ate dinner, read the paper, watched the debate and then some of the ball game. When I came back to the computer at 8:15, I read email and blogs, then did a bit more searching for Mary's elusive family in Louisiana. No luck. I checked for a Seaver family in the 1920 census and made a genealogy report for my Seaver correspondent. Then I wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours. 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.0 hours on CVGS activities, and 2.0 hours doing research for others.
