Randy's Genealogy Day - 14 June 2010

Back from the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree - had a great time, and then really rocked and rolled tonight with 5.7 earthquake in Ocotillo area. Felt it good!

* Up early, read email, blogs and Twitter, got cleaned up, posted Amanuensis Monday - the will of Joseph Seaver (1672-1754) of Framingham MA. Packed up OASIS class material, checked USB drive for right files, and off at 9:15 a.m. to Mission Valley.

* Got set up at OASIS by 10 a.m., downloaded RootsMagic to OASIS computer, set up, and for demonstrations, and students came by 10:20 a.m.

* Two plus hours later all were filled up with online computer genealogy information. Left for home, stopped at McDonalds for lunch, then library for Table Talk, and home by 1:45 p.m.

* Read everything, wrote Sunday at the SCGS Jamboree and then added all photos and videos from three cameras. Not many from SCGS turned out well, unfortunately. My camera stopped flashing, which means I need to hold it still longer in lower light. Need a new camera!

* Went in at 5 p.m. to eat dinner, then watered front plants, fed the birds, and back to computer to write Why Don't Genealogical Societies put their Periodical Indexes on the Internet for Free? It will be interesting to see responses from societies.

* Went in at 7:10 p.m. to watch the Padres game, read the paper, and read my Spenser mystery. Padres lost 6-3 to Blue Jays. Rudely interrupted at 9:29 p.m. by earthquake - 5.7 epicenter at Ocotillo, had 30 seconds of decent shake and roll. Checked USGS site, and added many updates to Facebook over the next hour.

* Wrote this post, and ready for bed. It was a fun genealogy day.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blog posts, 1.0 hour on Facebook, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at OASIS class, 0.5 hour at CVGS Table Talk, and 1.5 hours on photos and videos.
