Randy's Genealogy Day - 19 February 2010

We're back from our four days in Santa Cruz visiting Lori and the grandsons. It was a fun time - the boys (ages 6 and 4) are really into sports - hockey, soccer, baseball, football in that order. For Logan's birthday, we got him a table-top hockey game where you manipulate the six players with push-pull-rotatable levers and move the puck around. They love it!

While there, I accessed my email and Bloglines every day, but only made one extra post over and above the ones I created last weekend.

We were home by 1:30 p.m. today, so I was able to get back in my genealogy routine for half of the day.

* Read everything, wrote A Tribute to Marsha Hoffman Rising CG, FASG then burned down some of my email list. Helped Linda with mail, wash and papers. Called about appointments and a credit card charge.

* Checked for useful new databases - nothing but German additions this week. Drat.

* Went in at 5:30 to eat dinner, watch TV, read papers and was back online at 7 p.m.

* Researched and wrote First American Ancestors Magazine issue, then answered more emails. Wrote up a program description for a talk, and then wrote two blog posts for Saturday (since I'll go off to the CGSSD Meeting in the morning). Finally, wrote this blog post.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours - 1.5 hours doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 0.5 hour on presentation description, and 2.5 hours writing five blog posts.
