Genealogy Journal - 1 July 2009

The first day of the rest of 2009...and what did I do? Well, blog of course. Some other genealogy things too, let's see if I can remember everything:

* On computer by 7:45 a.m., read email, blogs and Twitter, the posted Family Photographs - Post 62: Betty and the Chickens and Checking out the SCGS Jamboree Exhibits - Post 1.

* Edited my column down from 1750 words to 1500 words, blessed it, and sent it off to my editor. Will I ever be succinct in my writing? Probably not - still too much of an engineer.

* Looked at new pages and posted Check out the HistoryBeat pages from Looked at the newspapers too - didn't find my Knapps in Poughkeepsie paper but I tried!

* Got cleaned up, and went to lunch at McDonald's and then to library for CVGS Board meeting. Was home before 2 p.m.

* After reading everything, worked on my ProGen homework - reviewing, proofreading and editing my colleagues' research reports. Then posted Isaac Buck - Revolutionary War Soldier for the 75th Carnival of Genealogy.

* At 5 p.m., went in to read paper, take a nap, and have dinner. Took out the trash and got 20 minutes reading everything before the Padres game.

* Padres lost 7-1 to Astros, and I read my Jeffery Deaver novel during the game. Over before 10, and came in to read everything and write this post.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 2.0 hours reading, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours doing ProGen homework, 1.0 hour on column, 0.5 hour on Footnote, and 2.0 hours on CVGS things.
