Genealogy Journal - 07/28/08

A 50/50 day - half genealogy, half not!

I was on the computer by 8 a.m., and read my email and blogs. I added the names to the Wheel of GenFortune post from Saturday. Then I posted about Wednesday's CVGS program on both Genea-Musings and the CV Genealogy Cafe. While on the latter, I posted about the CVGS Mentor Program. Then back to Genea-Musings and the next post in the endless Using FTM 2008 series. Then I worked on the October CVGS seminar publicity a bit and sent it off to the speaker for her OK. I had a quick lunch, gathered up my stuff for the library and went to the Table Talk session that started at noon.

I talked to Gary, who thinks he has whatever offensive HTML code there was off the CVGS web site. He showed me, and it's not there. I checked when I got home too. Terry and Dearl were there too, and we talked a bit before I went to the microfilm machine and found a 1967 obituary for a queryist. I talked to Kim about the October seminar. I was home by 2 p.m. I answered several emails, especially about the program on Wednesday and the October seminar. I checked Facebook for awhile, then checked new databases on Ancestry and WVR. I was tired of looking for blog fodder and wanted to take a nap. So...I did. I watched the news, read the paper, we had dinner out in back, and I spent 30 minutes saving the CVGS web site pages to my hard drive - I got almost all of them before IE locked up. The Padres game came on at 7:05, and I watered the back dirt/weeds and the front flowers between innings, the Padres won 8-5. I read the New England Ancestors magazine again - lots of excellent articles in it! Then I read my mystery until the game was over, and washed the dishes. Back to the computer - read email and blogs, and then this post. Enough.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 3.5 hours on CVGS things, 0.5 hour on Facebook, and 0.5 hour on Ancestry/WVR.
