Genealogy Journal - 11/11/08

I stayed home today (the library wasn't open...) and never really got excited about genealogy things, although I spent almost all day doing genealogy things, except for the memorial service for Denny.

I got on the computer at 8:30 (Linda had to do her minutes and agenda for Deacons) and read my email and blogs, then posted Veterans Day - my heroes with a picture of my grandfather in his Marine uniform. I checked Facebook, worked on the Genealogy News of the Month for the CVGS Research Group tomorrow, and also researched a bit for a colleague, with some success. We had lunch, and then went to church at 1 pm. to help set up the reception in the fellowship hall, and the service at 2, and the reception at 3. We were home around 4 p.m. I checked email and blogs and Facebook, but didn't do anything useful until after dinner.

I posted Book Review: "Google Your Family History" - it took me awhile to put it together. After that, I emailed my CVGS list about the November newsletter, copied and pasted all of my vacation narratives into an MSWord document. My daughter called at 8 and again at 9:15 and we talked for awhile - Logan is talking more clearly, it was fun to hear him string words together. I posted about the Footnote.com reduced rates for Veterans, good until 30 November. Then this post and I'm done.

Genealogy today was 7.5 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 the vacation document, 2.0 hours on the news of the month, and 1.5 hour doing research.
