Randy's Genealogy Day - 5 April 2010

The earth shook only slightly today, at least when I had my feet on the ground and was awake. I guess that's progress! It was a different genealogy day...

* Read email, read blogs, wrote Amanuensis Monday - Probate Records of Amy (Champlin) Oatley (1798-1865) and then 1880 US Census Defective, Dependent and Delinquent Schedule Data, and set it for later in the morning.

* Got cleaned up, worked in Ancestry 1880 DDD census for awhile - have no known DDDs, but there were some Seaver and Carringer folks.

* Ate lunch at home, gathered up papers and off to library for Table Talk with John and Gary. Talked about my trip, the April CVGS activities, and then tried to satisfy two queries. Found one of the two obituaries. Was home by 2:15 p.m.

* Watched Padres game, napped a bit, read the paper, started reading NGS Mag. Pads lost 6-3 to Snakes, drat (now 0-1).

* Back on desktop at 4:45 p.m., read everything, wrote Internet Genealogy Magazine TOC - April/May 2010 Issue, then dinner time.

* Back online after dinner. Checked in on Facebook. Wrote email to queryist providing negative results, but did some research and found other relatives, so may need to search for more obituaries on Wednesday.

* Back to TV at 8 p.m. for 24 and the NCAA game, and read more of NGS Mag.

* Back online at 10 p.m., read everything, wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours doing CVGS queries, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, and 2.0 hours working in online databases.
