Genealogy Journal - 10/17/08

I did some blogging, some CVGS work and some SDGS presentation work today in genealogy, while doing work around the house and taking Linda out to dinner.

After reading my email and blogs, I updated Keeping up with the Taggers - Post 2 and then checked into Facebook. I made program handouts for the CVGS seminar on Saturday and on Wednesday, 29 October. I left at 10 a.m. to make copies of the programs and handouts at the UPS store, got a haircut finally, went to the bank and the library, and came home for lunch. After lunch, I worked in the garage and transferred all of the bedroom stuff still in the living room to the garage. Our kids are going to have a great time sorting everything out when we pass away! Back on the computer, I downloaded TMG 7 to my laptop, and wrote I'm almost ready to cruise. I updated the Tagging post again, and then posted Evidence of Sarah Martin's Maiden Name. I checked Ancestry, WVR and Footnote for some of my Project C elusives - and might have solved one of my mysteries.

At this point, I decided to go out and cut the front lawn - it took over an hour. Linda came out and trimmed the roses while I watered the plants. We went out to dinner to Daphne's and dessert at ColdStone - yummy. We were home after 7 pm, and I stapled all of the handouts for the seminar together. I spent about two hours working on the handout for the SDGS Presentation -- Genealogy Web Sites You Can Use -- I got all of the links in my 96 slide presentation on four pages. Then I wrote this post, and am done for the night.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on CVGS seminar and program, 2.0 hours on SDGS presentation, and 0.5 hour on Facebook.

Tomorrow is the CVGS "Discover Your Family History" seminar with Dr. Jean Wilcox Hibben as the featured speaker. I posted the seminar description here. Blogging will be light on Saturday until I get home and can summarize the day's activities.
