Genealogy Journal - 01/22/09

While I was sleeping, Blogger posted What will GenSeek be? for me - I wrote it last night but wanted folks to read it this morning.

I was on the computer by 8 a.m., read my email and blogs, tweeted once about GenSeek, checked Facebook, read some Ancestry Magazine articles online, and wrote Read about "The Great Nepotism Experiment." I got cleaned up and went off to the San Diego FHC, getting there at about 10:30. At the FHC, I found three probate records for Hawk/Hough persons in volumes 1 and 2 of Westmoreland County PA wills. I copied them to my flash drive, checked the computers out a bit, and was home by 12:30 p.m. I had lunch and then posted "Genealogy is Fun! Seriously!" Program in Escondido on Saturday, 24 January. I tweeted about it, checked Facebook, email and blogs, and went to the NEHGS site, and checked out the Connecticut Nutmegger database. I wrote "Connecticut Nutmegger" online at NEHGS Site and worked a bit on other NEHGS databases for awhile. I needed to work on my "Genealogy Is Fun" presentation some more, so I did that until about 4:45 p.m. when I went in to watch TV, read the paper and not take a nap.

A friend came over for dinner, so I wasn't back to the computer until 8 p.m. I read email, blogs and Facebook, answered some emails, worked on the presentation some more, and then wrote CVGS Computer Group on Wednesday 1/21/09 on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. Then I wrote this post, and will go watch ER at 10.

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours at the FHC doing research, 1.0 hour on the NEHGS site doing research, and 1.5 hours working on the presentation.
