Genealogy Journal - 03/16/09

The post My Y-DNA Results - Post 5: FamilyTreeDNA Possible Matches was published as I read email and blogs this morning. Scheduling works really great! After writing Review: QuickSheet: Citing Databases and Images I worked on several more scheduled posts for the rest of the week. This was non-stop until lunchtime, I ate at home, and then went off to the library at 12 noon for Table Talk. Dearl was the only other one there. I hunted for some genealogy fiction books (I have a list now) and found several. I'll read them while I'm in Santa Cruz.

I was home by 2 p.m. and wrote several more scheduled blog posts for the week. After checking Twitter, Facebook, email and blogs, I found the post that resulted in Is the new FamilySearch Life Browser dead? Maybe not! That is really good news, I think! It was TV and dinner time, and I didn't come back to the computer until 7 p.m.

The Surname Wordle-ers Collection posted a bit later, and I worked on several more posts for the week. At 9, I went in to watch 24, do the dishes and pack for the trip, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 1.5 hours on CVGS things, and 5.0 hours writing blog posts.

The Geneaholic may go dark for a few days - I'm off to Santa Cruz in the morning to see the grandsons and have grandpa fun. I'm taking my digital audio recorder - maybe Lucas has some interesting things to say for posterity.
