Randy's Genealogy Days - 25-26 July 2010

Missed posting last night due to boredom and exhaustion.

Sunday, 25 July events:

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, and got cleaned up so we could go to early church, then to water our friend's plants. Home by 10:45 PM.

* Got Best of the Genea-Blogs - 18-24 July 2010 finalized and then joined up with Scanfest for awhile. didn't scan anything, just chatted.

* Went in at 12:30 to eat lunch, watch the Padres game, read the paper and take a nap. Pads won 6-3, and I was out the door at 1:20 PM to go to the library for the CVGS meeting.

* Got set up, and started at 2:15 the presentation on Using Old and New Went until 4:30 PM, and hurried home so we could leave at 5 PM for the play in Point Loma.

* Picked up Walter and got to the park at 5:40 PM, ate Subway sandwiches in the cool breeze, then saw the "Hankering Hillbillies" play at Westminster church. Pretty good. Daniel was in it, Christian did lights, I enjoyed it. Home by 9:45 PM. See - I do get out occasionally!

* Read everything, checked Facebook and was exhausted so went to bed.

Monday, 26 July activities:

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, and posted Amanuensis Monday - the Will of Zachariah Hildreth (1728-1784). Got cleaned up, then wrote CVGS Program on 28 July - Susi Pentico on "Vital Records" and posted it on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe too.

* Left at 10:15 to have blood taken, then to the bank and to the library. Talked to Dearl for awhile, but came home for lunch. Read everything, and worked on my source citations - used WorldCat to give me title, author, publication info and edited about 40 master sources in my database. Got through the G's in the MA Town VR books.

* Wrote Whew! Back to the future? and then worked on my duplicate persons, maiden names, date fixes and source citations for awhile. Got the G's done. Only A to F to go now!

* Went in at 5 PM to watch TV, eat dinner, then watered back hillside, pulled nasty weeds, and watered front plants. Back online at 6:30 PM to read everything.

* Worked on some emails - and did some research for one client report. Found an online book with good biographical material for three generations of a Seaver line so added that to the database.

* Checked in on Facebook, wrote this post and I'm done for the night.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 1.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 4.0 hours working in the database, 0.5 hour for CVGS, and 1.5 hours doing online research.
