Randy's Genealogy Day - 28 June 2010

Another genealogy project finished - but I didn't get started on the next four, all due in July. Drat. Didn't feel good in the afternoon - maybe have a bug? Hope not - the grandgirls come visiting on Tuesday for a week - their summer vacation while their floor gets replaced.

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, and posted Amanuensis Monday - Shubael Seaver's (1640-1730) Estate Division and wrote Consolidated Index to Plymouth Colony Records and set it for after noon. Got cleaned up and ready to go out.

* Left at 9:15 a.m. for Mission Valley to teach my fourth class on Beginning Computer Genealogy for OASIS. Got there at 9:40, got set up, and was ready by 10 a.m. to greet my students. A good class - we had almost an hour to do some problem solving and demonstrating web sites.

* Stopped at McDonald's for lunch on the way back, visited the Chula Vista library for a few minutes, and was home by 1:45 p.m. Read everything, but felt terrible - headache, clammy, so took a nap.

* Back online and felt a little better, but didn't even think about the upcoming projects. Opened up the database, remembered I had some Horton data from 1983, and entered some of that into my database. Looked up and it was 5:30 p.m.!

* Had dinner, fed the birds, came back for awhile before the Padres game. Downloaded several years of NGSQ issues for my laptop library.

* Went in at 7:10 to watch Padres-Rockies game. Jimenez took no-hitter into 6th inning, then Pads scored 4 to make it 8-4. It ended 10-6 Rockies. Oh well. Read quite a bit of my new book which I need to review soon!

* Back online at 10:30 - posted CVGS Program: "Infectious Diseases of the Civil War" on Wednesday, 30 June and sent it to the CVGS member email list. Wrote this post, and I'm done!

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hour writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at OASIS class, 0.5 hour on NGSQ downloads, 2.0 hours working in my database, and 0.5 hour on CVGS.
