Genealogy Journal - 09/18/08

Thursday was not the typical genealogy day - well, other than blogging a lot, I guess!

After reading my email and blogs, I posted about the Ten Essential Books carnival, then I watched some videos on RootsTV and posted about FamilySearch Indexing and digitizing. I read about the Homestead records on Footnote, but had to go to Home Depot for material and to Jimmy's Restaurant for lunch with my Rohr Engineers Retirees group. I was home just after 1 pm.

I posted about the Footnote Homestead records - adding more info than was in the press release. I checked email, blogs and Facebook, then worked a bit on my CG101 presentation. I added three posts to the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, and played with FamilyLink, Geni and WebTree for awhile, seeing how input compares with Footnote Pages. I was dozing at 3:30, so I went in for a nap, read the paper, watch TV, eat dinner, and water the plants.

I came back to the computer at 6:15, and found I could download the September issue of Everton's Genie Helper through my WVR subscription, so I read that for awhile. At 7, I got involved in the TGSG chat with four others about a Donn Devine article in NGSQ about DNA research. That ended at 8:15, and I found that I could access the Newsbank site for 20 newspapers plus the Chula Vista Star-News through my CVPL library card. I found and printed an article about my mother's baby shower - for me! I read my email and blogs, then posted this blog.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours -- 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 0.5 hour on RootsTV, 0.5 hour reading EGH, 0.5 hour on Footnote, 1.0 hour working on CG101, 1.5 hour on the TGSG chat, and 0.5 hour on shared family tree sites.
