My genealogy day - 31 March 2012

This was the CVGS Spring seminar day - fun!

*  up early to read email and blogs, then left for Bonita at 8 a.m.  Got to the golf course at 8:20.  Greeted folks, talked to Bill and Leland, helped Ruth a bit, and talked to folks.

*  The seminar started at 9 a.m. with Gary, then Susi, then Bill Dollarhide's first talk.  He ran long, but it was great history and examples of the different groups that migrated from England to the US.  Leland gave his Migration Paths talk, and it was time for lunch.  Browsed the books at the breaks, and bought two for me, and worked with Ann and Wanda to find books for CVGS to buy.

*  After lunch, enjoyed Bill's talk on the Scots-Irish, and Leland's talk on Newspapers.  Helped clean up and pack up books.

*  Home by 4:30, noted that Surname Saturday - LNU (England? > Rhode Island) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Guess Your Ancestor's 1940 Census Data posted.  

*  Wanda called and invited us to dinner with Bill and Leland, so we met at Murrieta's at 5:30 p.m.  Had an enjoyable dinner and sharing with all.  

*  Home by 7:15 p.m. to read, then worked in the database adding content and sources, and added to the Best Of post.  Wrote this post.
