Genealogy Journal - 06/12/08

This was not much of a genealogy day at all. The only genealogy related activities today were reading and blogging.

I was on the computer at 8 a.m., and after reading email and blogs wrote "Online Editions for Everton's Genealogical Helper." That took awhile to write... and I visited Facebook to see how the Unclaimed Persons searches were going - gangbusters! I wish I had more time. I had to get ready to go out, so didn't do much more this morning.

We left for the Padres-Dodgers game at 10:45 a.m. We took the trolley downtown with the cars full of school kids going to the game, ate at the Tin Fish restaurant (has a live singer outside, we ate on the patio in the shade), and were in out seats by 12:20 p.m. I got our ice creams, we saw about 20 Army recruits inducted into the US Army, and the game began at 12:35. My Padres won 9-0. The trolley home was crowded, but Linda got a seat, and we were home by 4:15.

I quickly read my email and blogs, then posted "CVGS Research Group on 11 June" and "Ancestry doubles its newspaper collection..." I also edited my post again on "Searching for birth dates in software." At 5 p.m., I went in to read the paper, watch the news and eat dinner. Linda did her email work, so I didn't get on the computer until after 7 p.m., and had some financial work and church work to do. I found an image online (well, it found me...) of Barack Obama's Certification of Birth record and posted it here. I checked Facebook again, and will wind this up early because Tami and her babies will be here soon for the weekend. As they say, "blogging may be light."

Genealogy today was all of 3.5 hours - 0.5 hour reading email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour reading Facebook and 2.0 hours writing blog posts. That's all, folks!
