My genealogy day - 5 April 2012

The baseball season has begun, which means that my genealogy time will be reduced significantly almost every day.  There are choices in life...and that was one reason to buy a smart phone and a tablet - to help me watch the ball games on TV while reading email, blogs, Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter, news, sports, etc. Maybe I'll even do some FamilySearch Indexing and Ancestry shaky leaf attaching too!   There was method in my madness, see?

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote Treasure Chest Thursday - Carringer 1940 US Census Page.  

*  Did one more edit on the presentations for Saturday, added more comments, corrected some, separated several slides into two.  Transferred them to the flash drive and to Dropbox, and got them into the laptop also.  All set!

*  Noted that I'm Presenting at Orange County Genealogical Society on Saturday, 7 April posted, and then wrote Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - April 2012 and CVGS Seminar Review - "British Isles to America and Migrating West."

*  Had lunch, read blogs, Facebook and Twitter, and posted Interesting Tweets for "1940 census" Today.

*  We left at 2 p.m. for the trolley station and were in our seats at Petco Park by 3 p.m.  Pre-game started at 3:30 with introductions, and the game at 4.  We lost to Dodgers 5-3.  The smart phone cell service was poor, as was the free wi-fi, so pictures didn't get posted to Facebook.  

*  Home by 8 p,.m. to read, answer email, then worked on the CVGS Newsletter.  got it 90% complete with final editing needed.  

*  Added to the Best Of post, checked Facebook, charging the smart phone, and wrote this post.

*  No online research, no database work, no Indexing, no census, not much progress made today (except for the presentation!).

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours.
