Randy's Genealogy Day - 7 March 2010

Starting to feel the deadline pressure - the goal is to finish my FORUM column and blog on G-M and CVGC for the rest of March by next Friday...finished one big job today, and got started on the column.

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, and noted that At the Escondido Family History Fair posted (written last night). Started Best of the Genea-Blogs - 28 February - 6 March 2010 before church - left at 9:30 a.m.

* Home at 11:35, finished Best of post, had quick lunch, gathered up CVGS newsletter stuff and out the door at 12:15 p.m. to UPS Store.

* Susi and Virginia helped with the CVGS newsletter publishing - home by 1 p.m.

* Read everything, sent newsletter to members, did a little database work on some Seaver families, wrote the synopsis for my CGSSD talk in May and sent it off, wrote our tour guide with questions, and started in on FGS FORUM column for summer issue, due 31 March. Worked until 5 p.m.

* Went in to watch TV, eat dinner, read paper, back to desktop at 7 p.m.

* Looked through database for good Amanuensis Monday items, have lots of transcribed wills. Gotta be careful - should only post the ones I've transcribed. Decided to write about 10 generation pedigree charts in Can you document all names back 10 generations? Got wrapped around the counting axle and revised several times...knew I shouldn't have tried it! It's about right, I think, and conveys what I wanted to say.

* Checked Facebook, and wrote this post, and done for the night!

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on CVGS newsletter, 1.5 hours working in database, 2.0 hours on FGS column.
