Genealogy Journal - 06/08/08

Kind of a quiet day here in the genealogy cave.

I read my email and blogs before getting ready for church, and even started my "Best of the Genea-Blogs" post. We left at 9:30, and I was home by noon. I finished the blog post, and downloaded the trial version of The Master Genealogist just for tricks. decided I'd better start moving stuff in the cave and the bedroom so that the window man can measure on Monday. I took a break for the Padres game at 1, which ended at 4:30 (Pads won 8-6, 5 in a row!), and we had dinner shortly after. After dinner, I moved stuff around in the cave and extra room, took trash out, and stacked books for the library.

At 7 p.m., I came back and read my email and blogs, and checked the Facebook Unclaimed Persons group, and decided to do some searching for some of the CA UPs. I worked on 3 of them - completely struck out on two, and found some family for the 3rd, but can't find a living person. There's just not enough information available, it seems, for most of these people. They are Unclaimed for a reason!

Genealogy today was 4.0 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, and 2.0 hour searching futilely for UPs.
