Genealogy Journal - 03/08/09

Not much genealogy today...except for publishing the CVGS newsletter and digging into an Unclaimed Persons case.

I slept in due to DST, and barely got my email read before we went off to church at 9:30. Two posts were written last night and launched today - "Genealogy Web Sites You Can Use" Talk on Tuesday 3/10 in Carlsbad and Best of the Genea-blogs - March 1-7, 2009. We were home by 11:45, and I read email, blogs, T/FB and gathered up the CVGS newsletter stuff and went off at 12:15 to the UPS store. Shirley showed me how to print the 2-sided 11x17 pages, then we folded, stamped, labelled, collated and taped the 2 sheets together so no one can get them apart. With four people, we were done by 1 p.m. Off to the Chinese restaurant down the mall, and I was home at about 2:15 p.m.

I did email, blogs and T/FB, and went in and took a nap. When I got back on, I emailed the newsletter PDF to the webmaster, and found a new Unclaimed Persons case on Facebook to work on, and did that for awhile. Linda called at 5:30 and had dinner ready, so we ate and then watched "About San Diego" on TV at 6. I was back on at 6:30, and sent the newsletter password off to all of the email list. Back to the Unclaimed Persons case, posted FREE 7-day trial offer for NewspaperARCHIVE, and then watched Desperate Housewives. What tangled webs they weave. Back to the computer at 10 p.m., I did more Unclaimed Persons searching and then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on T/FB, 1.0 hour writing blog posts, 2.0 hours on CVGS newsletter, and 3.0 hours on Unclaimed Persons.
