Genea-Journal - 12/13/07

After reading my email and Bloglines list this morning, I posted my Advent Calendar post on Fruitcake (of all things) and then saw that the Maven started a meme on Christmas Carols, so I posted my favorite one here, and then decided to post a genealogy carol from last year "O Family Tree." Since I was all blogworn, I got my stuff together and went to the County Clerk's office to get two certificates (they were busy, but fast today, and the computers all work great now). Then I stopped at the Post Office and mailed my Journals to the relatives, and then to Wal-Mart and Costco to window shop and have lunch. I picked George up at noon and we walked our two miles on the bayfront - it was cool (about 60F) and clear.

I got home at about 1 PM, and read my email and Bloglines, then did a bit of research looking for Cathy for my correspondent - I found her parents and emailed him with the information. I posted three notes on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog at - two of them repeats from Genea-Musings. I answered some more emails, including my answer about proof and vital records.

After dinner, I posted the "proof" and vital records email to Genea-Musings here. Then I put captions on one more of my OpenOffice picture albums (I've now finished 3 of 10). Went in to watch CSI, and washed the dishes, then checked email and Bloglines and wrote this up.
