Genealogy Journal - 04/29/09

We're almost to May, and I have three speaking engagements to prepare for. Yikes! Gotta get started, because the grandkids will be here in two weeks for a week.

After reading email, blogs and Twitter, I posted Family Photographs - Post 53: Was Della driving? and More on Better Source Citations. I listened to Lisa's Genealogy Gems Podcast #64 too. Pam emailed me her notes for the OASIS class, so I copied them into an MSWord file and started editing it. There may be something missing, so I emailed her about it. I'm just 12 days away from the first class so I need to get that act together! I ate lunch and went off to the library for the 12 noon CVGS Program meeting. Shirley Becker talked about Digital Documentation.

I was home by 2:15 p.m., and read everything and tried to find something interesting to blog about. I worked on the class notes some more too. At 4 p.m., I went in to read the paper, watch TV and take a nap. At 5 p.m. we left for dinner with our neighbors - went to Rubio's. We were home by 7 p.m. I read everything, checked some Ancestry functions, attached some documents to people in my tree just to see how that works, put my mtDNA results into the Ancestry DNA page, and found no matches. Oh well. Then I wrote "Digital Documentation" - CVGS Program Summary about the program today. After browsing Twitter and Facebook, I wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blog posts, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 0.5 hour listening to podcasts, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours at CVGS, 2.0 hours working on class notes, and 1.0 hour working in Ancestry.

I think I'd be able to get a lot more done each day if I were able to make myself get up as early as you seem to. It's an ambition of mine to get up by 7 am each day....but I always fall well short. I admire early risers!

Glad I could spend a small part of the day with you! :-)
