Genealogy Journal - 12/09/08

This was a pretty full day of stay-at-home blogging, emailing and printing.

After reading my email and blogs, I posted Tombstone Tuesday - the Isaac Seaver Family Stone. I wrote some emails, and checked Facebook, then got dressed to go out. I needed a WordPerfect document converted to something I can read, so I put the word out on Facebook and quickly had two people volunteer to do it, and it was done quickly by Ana. I called Ed's brother in Georgia to see if we could talk on the phone today, but he didn't call back until about noon, so we didn't do the chat today. We're going to do it on Thursday though, God willing! I researched then wrote FamilySearch Record Search - Census Databases (Updated) before having lunch. Then I wrote the 40 Things About Me meme but scheduled it to post later in the day.

The CVGS holiday luncheon is on Wednesday, so I printed up the programs and my speeches. I still need to do some certificates. Although we're not having a Research Group on Wednesday, I'm going to publish the Genealogy News of the Month on the CV Genealogy Cafe blog and email it to the members, so I did the research necessary and wrote a draft of it. I checked on Facebook again, then retired to the family room at 5 p.m. to watch TV, read the paper, and eventually have dinner.

After dinner, I was back to the computer at 6:30, and started printing 8 pages of the Seaver-Richmond Family Journal. That leaves 3 to go, and I still need to edit them. I also printed out the CVGS newsletter so I would have it on hand at the CVGS meeting tomorrow. I wrote this post and am going to quit earlier tonight - last night we got almost all of the Christmas cards done after I got off the computer.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.0 hours on CVGS activities, 1.5 hours on the Journal, 1.5 hours on the Research News, and 0.5 hours trying to line up the phone call with Ed.
