Genealogy Journal - 02/03/09

I was surprised by the article in the San Diego Union-Tribune today about the Unclaimed Persons office in the San Diego Medical Examiner's office. I read it, then got on the computer and wrote San Diego John Doe is George D. Schott about the work the Unclaimed Person Facebook group did to find the family. I went in and got cleaned up, checked in on Facebook, tweeted about the Schott article, and worked a bit on CVGS member survey results. At 11:15, I went to Olive Garden for lunch with friends. I was home by 1 p.m.

I posted Tombstone Tuesday - Henry White and family then worked more on the CVGS survey results. I downloaded the January 2009 NEHGS Register and scanned it for useful information - there's more on my Kent family in England. I finished the CVGS survey results and sent them off to the Board for review and comment. At 5:30 p.m., I went in to watch TV, take a short nap and have dinner.

I was back on the computer by 6:30, and worked on the CVGS Annual Report, finished the draft and sent it off to the Board. I posted New Ancestry Content coming in February. Then it was time for my ProGen homework assignment - transcribing and abstracting a will record. I used the Ranslow Smith will transcription, and did the abstract. I sent it off to the Group. Then it was back to Facebook and I did Thomas' Quickies note and tagged a bunch of people. Where did the time go? It's 10 p.m. and I'm tired.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on T/FB, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on the NEHGS site, 1.0 hour on the ProGen assignment, and 4.0 hours on CVGS work.
