Genealogy Journal - 09/30/08

September is over already? It seems like it started just awhile ago. I'm not sure that I made any progress on my goals for the month, other than completing and giving the CGSSD presentation.

This was almost a total genealogy day. I read email, read blogs, and posted My Genetealogy Dilemma - Blaine kindly responds and I Read about Benjamin Franklin Seaver in the Newspapers on Genea-Musings. Then it was off to Facebook, email to CVGS members, and two posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog about the CVGS Research Trip to the SDGS Library on Saturday and Genealogy Days in Chula Vista for October 2008. I spent some time on the Randy's Busy Life blog posting funnies and my last Padres update.

After lunch, I went onto www.GeneTree.com and explored the information about mitochondrial DNA. My sample has been analyzed, and I posted about it in My mtDNA is in the K Haplogroup. I put together a short presentation with screen shots to support future blog posts. I worked on my ProGen homework assignment - finding the time wasters over two weeks of logging time. Finally, I noticed that the Everton Publishers Genealogy Blog is back from digital hell.

I went in to read the paper, watch TV, eat dinner, water the front plants and back yard. At 6:30, I came back and decided to work on Project M. I called Ed, and he has not read the email I sent him 13 days ago - I forgot to call him about it. I had some census records to add to his database, so I did that, and then went off to find more census records for his ancestral families. Then I wrote this post and I'm done for the night, I think.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.5 hours doing ProGen homework, 1.0 hour on GeneTree, and 2.5 hours working on Project M.
