Genealogy Journal - 01/14/09

Ah, back in the genealogy saddle again - blog all day, go to the library, work on a presentation tonight - life is good!

I read my email and blogs soon after 8 a.m. and posted Family Photographs - Post 38: Mom as a Young Lady and FHL Computer Subscription Websites before downloading my pictures and record images from the trip. I labeled the pictures, and put the record images in the right places in my new digital filing system. I printed out some of the images, and printed out my Genea-Musings posts about the trip for the CVGS Research Group meeting. Finally, I posted CGSSD Meeting on Saturday 1/17 - Make a DVD of Your Family History Research.

I left at 11:30 a.m. for the post office and the library. We started the Research Group meeting at 12:10 p.m. with 12 people attending. I took some time to talk about the trip, then we went around the table with our recent activities, problems and show-and-tell things. I was home by 2:30 p.m., and emailed the Genealogy News of the Month to the email list and posted it on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. I found an I'm My Own Grandpa video already on my computer - I need it for my presentation next week. I registered at Family Pursuit and uploaded a GEDCOM file to see how it works. I checked in on Facebook and Twitter, and went in at 5 p.m. to watch the news, read the paper, take a nap and have dinner.

I was back to the computer at 7 p.m., and printed out the CVGS newsletter and the TGSG article for Thursday's chat. Then I wrote the CVGS Research Group Summary and posted the note CVGS Research Group Summary and Monthly Genealogy News Summary on Genea-Musings in a blatant attempt to get some hits for the Genealogy Cafe blog. I worked on the Genealogy is Fun! presentation for almost two hours, and have it almost done.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour downloading SLC images and printing things out, 2.5 hours on CVGS activities, 1.0 hour on Family Pursuit, 0.5 hour on TGSG activities, and 2.0 hours on the presentation.
