Genealogy Journal - 07/18/08

Just another decent genealogy day here at the Genea-Cave...8 straight hours of doing what I love to do with few distractions. But after that...

I was on the computer by 8 a.m. and read my email and blogs, then posted about the 52nd Carnival of Genealogy on Age, and then worked on and posted Using FTM 2008 - Post 6. I spent some time updating my Padres stuff on Randy's Busy Life and some funnies, then I worked in WorldVitalRecords for awhile in the Everton FGS and Pedigree chart collection - I found some Seaver and Auble data and printed them off. I had lunch at home, and then entered the Everton data into my databases. I found more copies of the missing CVGS web pages, but not any of the sub-pages. I emailed what I found to my board members.

Facebook called my name, and I read a bit, made some new friends and wrote a bit there, and then I explored FamilySearch Record Search for awhile and posted about it later. I wanted to write something about Using Rootsweb WorldConnect to find existing family tree data, but couldn't put a good story together. I visited GenCircles and KindredKonnections and WeRelate also looking for data to demonstrate in a blog post and a presentation to my society. At 4:30, Linda wanted to go out to dinner, so we went to Trophy's in Eastlake and had fish and chips while watching the Padres game and then stopped by ColdStone for an ice cream. We were home by 6:30, and watched the game to the bitter end (Pads lost, 11-7). Linda did her email while I took a walk to cool off, then when I came back I got on the computer for mail and blogs. Not much exciting going on, eh?

Genealogy today was maybe 7.0 hours -- 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 researching and writing blog posts, 1.0 hour researching in WVR, 1.0 hour entering data into FTM16, 1.0 hour working in WorldConnect and several other databases, 0.5 hour in Record Search and 0.5 hour doing CVGS things.
