Genealogy Journal - 03/16/08

Today was a typical Sunday - go to church, come home, blog, have lunch, do chores, blog, take a nap, watch TV, eat dinner, blog, research, etc. Do you get the impression that my life revolves around blogging? Maybe I should be the Geneablogaholic! I don't need another blog...

We went to church early today at 8:30 because Linda had to teach Sunday School at 10 and had her deacons meeting at 11:30. I came home at 10 and read email and blogs to my hearts content. I posted "Best of the Genea-Blogs, March 9-15, 2008" and went off in search of more blog topics. I almost posted another diatribe about the Ancestry/Rootsweb TIAT (that's a Tempest in a Teapot, folks) but decided not to right now. I've said my piece. The APG list has many comments on both sides - interesting.

I had lunch and watched some basketball, but was back on the 'puter by 12:30 p.m. and did a bit of searching in Ancestry using both the Old and New search boxes. I emailed my observations to Kendall about them. I answered several emails from distant cousins - one that just found me after I dropped messages on the boards for him. Then I posted the TOC for the May 2008 Family Tree Magazine. It's another good one - there are some active article links at their web site. I went to watch the NCAA brackets on TV and took a nap, then watched TV and read the paper until dinner time.

After dinner, I was back on the computer at 7 p.m. and read email and blogs. I posted several posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, wrote an email to the CVGS email list, and added another 6 posts to my "bank" for next week when I'll be up in Santa Cruz. It's almost 9:30 so I'm going to go read my murder mystery and watch TV.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 1.0 hours reading and answering email, 0.5 hours reading blogs, 4.5 hours writing blog posts, and 1.0 hour working with Ancestry.
