Genealogy Journal - 04/28/09

It was Audrey's first birthday today, and we missed it. Tami said she pulled herself up and stood up today. Cool. The second year is my favorite! I get to chase them. Lucas and Logan called tonight and we had a good talk.

After reading email, blogs and Twitter, I posted about Happy Dance, Ah-ha, Eureka, Geneagasm Moments and then did some reading and playing with Ancestry and WorldVitalRecords - even captured some Barbour Collection pages. I got cleaned up, but stayed home and had lunch, then researched and posted Tombstone Tuesday - David Auble (1817-1894) in Terre Haute, Indiana. I'm almost out of gravestone photos of my ancestors. There are lots that I know where they are but haven't photographed, and I'm not ready for another trip yet. I posted CVGS Program on 29 April - Shirley Becker on "Computer Document Organization" and then Are You Reading "The Examiner" Genealogy Columns? I was bored with blogging, so I did something I've wanted to do for awhile - I made "head shots" of many of my family members and ancestors so that I can add them to my software program and be able to make Photo Trees. Finally, I wrote "The Census Taker Cometh." Excellent article.

At 5 p.m., I went in to watch TV, read the paper, and we had dinner while watching the Padres game. We won 4-3 coming from behind (now 11-9 in the young season). At 9 p.m., I came back and read everything, tweeted a bit, edited the Examiner post, checked in on Facebook, and 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, 2.0 hours working on the photos, 1.0 hour on ancestry and WVR, and 3.5 hours writing blog posts.
