Genealogy Journal - 11/07/08

This was a fairly full genealogy day for me - no real research progress, but some progress on genealogy tasks.

I was on the computer by 7:30 a.m. reading email and blogs, then checked Facebook. I decided that I'd better blog about something, so I posted about the Glen Abbey Memorial Park on the South San Diego County Graveyard Rabbit blog (before I lose my charter membership), and then about American Migration Trails on Genea-Musings. After that, I checked and for new databases. At 11:15, I packed up to go to lunch at McDonald's, the post office box and the library.

We had our CVGS Board meeting at noon, and I was home by 2:30 p.m. after getting library books. I decided that I'd better work on my Research Plan homework, so I modified what I had into a form that is fairly general yet very useful, at least for me. I sent the example research plan to my ProGen Study Group colleagues. Then it was time for watching TV news and dinner (after Linda did her email).

I was back on the computer by 7:30 p.m., and wrote two posts on Genea-Musings - Great Advice - read a blog! and Learning from the Masters. I checked in on Facebook again, then decided to do one last edit and practice run for my talk at SDGS on Genealogy Web Sites You Can Use tomorrow.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours on CVGS activities, 2.5 hours on the ProGen homework Research Plan, and 2.0 hours on the presentation.
