Genealogy Journal - 11/25/08

This was a genealogy day and I touched almost every base on the field, it seems, plus a few.

I read my email and blogs, explored Sean Sexton's post and posted about Microsoft's Deep Zoom Technology Demonstration. I checked in on Facebook, and then posted Randy Revealed - tagged again with eight things about me. I stayed home for lunch, and browsed Ancestry for awhile, and downloaded pictures from my camera, then made the program and the member survey pages for the CVGS meeting on Wednesday.

I posted Tombstone Tuesday - the DeFrances on Genea-Musings and CVGS Computer Group Pictures on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. It was time for some serious genealogy work, so I added sources to about 100 persons in my database from notes made years ago from the Woburn MA Vital Records book. I uploaded some photos of the grandchildren to my Facebook album, and finally at 3:15, I went in to read the paper, watch TV and take a nap. I came back at 4:30 to browse through the New Jersey Archives databases, and to see what NJ databases are available on Ancestry there isn't much overlap. Then it was time for dinner and more news.

I came in at 6:30 to do more work on my family Journal, but I got sidetracked by unanswered email and finally got to editing pictures from my Aunt Gerry and putting them in the 2008 Journal. I looked up at 9:40, and wondered where the time went.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour on Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on CVGS business, 1.5 hours putting sources in my database, 1.0 hour browsing in online databases, and 2.0 hours working on photos and my Journal.
