Randy's Big Family History Day - 8 February 2010

Not much genealogy, but some great family history...

* Up early, got cleaned up, managed to read email before we left at 7:30 a.m. Amanuensis Monday - Shubael Seaver's estate distribution posted.

* Drove to LaVerne University... got there before 10 a.m. when daughter Tami was scheduled to defend her doctoral dissertation. It started on-time, Tami introduced her guests, the evaluation board introduced themselves, and Tami presented her dissertation findings to the group. The board asked some questions, and Tami responded cogently and well. They asked us to step outside, and when we went back in they said that she passed the defense and there were no revisions required to the dissertation. Doctor Tami. We were so proud. Tami and her hubby treated everybody to lunch in Azusa at their favorite restaurant. It was good, and we enjoyed the company of her friends and classmates. We left at 2 p.m. and were home by 4:15 p.m.

* While we were eating, Using Online Genealogy Message Boards - Post 5 (GenForum 2) posted.

* Checked email, blogs, Twitter and Facebook, and went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch news and read the paper, had dinner, and back online at 6:30 p.m. Answered some emails. Checked databases, then worked in my database fixing sources and place names.

* Went in at 9 p.m. to watch 24, and back online at 10:15 after washing dishes to read everything and write this post. Done!

Genealogy today was only 3.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 0.5 hour writing blog posts, and 1.5 hour working in the database.
