Genealogy Journal - 02/06/09

It started out as a rainy day in San Diego. I was up early, fed and dressed, read my email and posted about the Family History Expo in St. George before I went off for an 8:30 a.m. dentist appointment to fix my broken tooth. I was home after 10 a.m. with a numb cheek and a temporary crown on #14. I read my blogs, checked in on Facebook and Twitter, and looked at Legacy for source citation helps. I posted about the San Pasqual Battle (1846) Memorial at Fort Rosecrans on the SSDC Graveyard Rabbit blog.

After lunch, I posted about Teeth and Dentistry over time. I worked on the Legacy 7 source citations for awhile - did a Bible record and put the screen shots in an OpenOffice presentation, then made JPG files of all the screen shots. I wrote Legacy 7 Source Citations - First Look with 12 screen shots to document the step-by-step of the process. Legacy's templates seem easier to use than FTM 2009. I touted it on Twitter and Facebook, then answered notes on Facebook for awhile. I answered several emails from the library about our request for better wi-fi signals in the Conference Room and Library. It was dinner time, so I watched the news, read the paper and we ate at home.

After dinner, I did some homework on my Westmoreland County PA deeds - I listed the early ones I want to see for the Houk/Hoke/Hawk/Hough names. I wrote a post for Saturday morning, then wrote five posts about the CVGS program survey and member survey taken last month - some will appear on future days on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. And finally, this post and I'll check email, blogs and Facebook and be done for the night.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 3.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour working on CVGS issues, 1.0 hour working in Legacy source citations, and 1.5 hours working on the deed index.
