Genealogy Journal - 07/09/08

Another pretty full genealogy day with some time outs for neighbors, window preparation and a nap.

I was on the computer by 8 a.m., reading my email and blogs. I posted about Saturday's SDGS meeting with Ken Kramer and the ice cream social, and then about the Readability evaluation (I didn't think that it would do well with yesterday's Pig Latin post). I finished the Genealogy News email and printed it off for the meeting at noon. I printed off some of the Jamboree posts and also the CV Genealogy Cafe posts about web sites for show and tell. I had a quick lunch, and left at 11:40 for the post office and then the library.

The CVGS Research Group meeting started at noon, and we were done by 2. I talked to several of the attendees afterward, and one asked me to help with some research in Ancestry. I got two books from the library, and was home by 2:30.

When I got home, I emailed the Genealogy News to the CVGS email list, then posted it to the CV Genealogy Cafe blog. Then I wrote up the meeting summary for the Cafe blog and also posted it tonight on Genea-Musings. By 4:30, I was ready for my nap, so I went in and dozed off during the news, but watched O'Reilly at 4. We left at 5:40 to take our neighbors out to dinner - we celebrated Ruthie's 80th birthday at Marie Callander's - I had pot roast and lemon meringue pie. We were home by 7:30, and I watered the front plants and then spent about 30 minutes taking down curtains and blinds, and moving stuff away from the windows, in preparation for the Windows replacement tomorrow. All I have to do is take down our bedroom curtains and move some furniture a little ways...oh, and trim the rose bushes in front.

I was back on the computer at 8:30, read my email and blogs, wrote a Family Photo post and answered several emails. I heard from my newly found second cousin again, who sent some Seaver family pictures not seen before. I sent her three more of my Christmas Family Journals in return.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours researching and writing blogs, and 5.0 hours on CVGS activities. Not much real genealogy done today, but I shared a lot!
