Genealogy Journal - 01/17/09

This was not the typical Saturday genealogy day for me. I really didn't do much. Or so I thought!

I was up real early - 6 a.m. for some reason, and was on the computer by 6:30. I read email and blogs, then posted Papers, Images, Indexes and Searches (written the night before). After cleaning up, I gathered my laptop and took off for the Men's Bible Study at 8 a.m. in National City and then went to the CGSSD meeting at UCSD in La Jolla, getting there late at 9:15 a.m. That lasted until 12 noon, and I drove through McDonald's for lunch, then up to Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery to visit and photograph the graves of my parents, then many other graves there, some San Diego scenes too, then drove back through Point Loma to Shelter Island and Harbor Island for more scenery pictures and was home by 2:15 p.m.

Once home, I read email, blogs and Facebook, then posted CGSSD Meeting Highlights - DNA and DVDs about the CGSSD events. I posted seven jokes from my email to Randy's Busy Life, played with Ancestry searches a bit, then went in to take a nap, read the paper and watch TV. At 6 p.m., we went out to dinner to Daphne's, then to Coldstone for ice cream, and we were home by 7:15 p.m.

I did email, blogs and Facebook, then read some of the blog comments about searches and indexing. Wow. I posted Saturday Night Fun - When, Where and What is Randy Doing? I figured that I had better do something useful, so I worked on my Project M data - putting it in the database for Ed and his brothers. Then this post and I'm done - I'm sleepy and need my rest before the football games tomorrow.

Genealogy today was 9.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 3.0 hours at the CGSSD meeting, 1.0 hour at Fort Rosecrans taking pictures, 1.0 hour working on Ancestry searches, and 2.0 hours working on Project M.
