Genealogy Journal - 01/15/09

Another genea-blogalicious day...with a TGSG chat thrown in for good luck.

I was on the computer by 8:15 a.m., had my email and blogs read, and Linda needed something typed and sent to the church office in a hurry, so I did that. Finally, I posted Checking out the Family History Library - Post 1 and then remembered that I had a Goodrich retiree lunch to attend at 11 - that ruined the plan to go to Fort Rosecrans for pictures and the FHC for film reading. I went to lunch and was back by 12:45.

After reading blogs and email and Facebook, I posted How will the economy affect genealogy? and then worked for about an hour on my Project M find - a wife's maiden name. I couldn't find her family in the 1900 or 1880 census with any surety. I messed around on Twitter for awhile, then went in and tried to read my TGSG article for tonight, but I dozed off, missed the Bush speech, and when I awoke we had dinner.

I came back to the computer at 6:15, read the article, and we had the chat from 7 to 8:30 p.m. I checked email, blogs and Facebook, then posted my Carnival posting A Winter non-photo essay. Linda needed more typing, so I did that, wrote this post and it's time for the dishes, the news and bed.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook/Twitter, 2.0 hour on Project M, 2.0 hour on TGSG chat.
