My genealogy day - 29 February 2012

It's the last day of February, so I'll do my statistics at the end of this post.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 194: My Junior High Graduation and Escondido (CA) Family History Fair is Saturday, 3 March and set it for later in the morning.  Wrote Does Genealogy Software Force Me to be Conclusion-Based? and set it for mid-afternoon.

*  Packed up and left at 11:10 a.m. for the gas station ($4.29.9 per gallon), then McDonald's for lunch, and then the library for the CVGS meeting.  Met with Ann and Dorothy and John to talk about the CVGS library list. 

*  Dr. Steven Schoenherr spoke on Key Moments in Chula Vista History using a slide show.  There were some interesting maps in the presentation, and he sure knows the people and the events.  

*  Home by 3 p.m. to read, then worked on the Blogging presentation some more.  

*  Went in at 4:45 p.m. to cut the front lawn, then watched TV, read the paper, ate dinner, and did the dishes before coming back at 7 p.m. to read.

*  Answered some email, corrected the last blog post, did one page of 1871 English census indexing, checked Facebook, and finished through 360 in Find-A-Grave for Seavers.   Added to the Best Of post, and wrote this post.
