Family History Journal - 02/27/08

Almost all genealogy, all the time, with short time outs for food and necessities.

I was on the computer by 8:30 a.m., and printed out the fliers needed to distribute for the March programs and the 5 April seminar. I read my email and Bloglines, and posted three items on Genea-Musings - two of which I wrote earlier. At 9:40, I left for the copy shop and the CVGS meeting at noon. I was done at the copy shop by 10:15, then stopped by the post office box, then Office Depot to pick up supplies, McDonald's for lunch, and was at the library by 11:15. I went in the back door at 11:30 but the staff was in the conference room so I puttered about for awhile. Finally, at 11:50, we were able to go in and get set up. We had a nice crowd - about 45 in attendance for Margaret Lewis talk on "Researching Slaves in the Family." After the program, I dropped my fliers with the library staff and was home by 2:45.

After reading my email and Bloglines, I made some genealogy reports for my Samuel Vaux descendants and researched them a bit in online databases, and posted a summary report on the presentation in " 'Researching Slaves in the Family' Presentation Today" on the Genealogy Cafe.

After dinner, I was back on at 7 p.m. and sent an email to my CVGS colleagues about the Research Trip on Saturday, and then read the TGF chat scripts and commented on the TGF closed blog. Then I put the collected census data for several families into my FTM database.

Genealogy today totalled 10.0 hours - including 1.5 hours reading email and blogs, 1.0 hour blogging, 5.0 hours on CVGS activities, 1.0 hour on TGF activities, and 1.5 hours on feeding my FTM database.

Hooray - Blogger has fixed the spell check!
