Genealogy Journal - 04/08/09

Baseball season has started to cut into my genealogy time already. I knew that I should have finished my coming presentations before the season started.

After reading email, blogs, Twitter and Facebook this morning, I posted Family Photographs - Post 50:The Lath-house and then SDGS Meeting on Saturday - "The Hand in the Snow" before getting cleaned up, eating lunch and heading off to the library.

We had the CVGS Research Group meeting and it was a lively affair. Only nine folks, but three were visitors with lots of questions which was great. I was home at 2:45 p.m. and read everything, then answered some emails and checked out some online family trees before tiring and going in to watch news, read the paper, take a nap, and have dinner. I came back to the computer at 6:45 p.m. and quickly wrote CVGS Research Group Meeting Summary before the game.

Went in at 7:10 p.m. and the Pads were already behind. They lost 5-2 to the Dodgers. During the game, I scanned through the latest Genealogy Online for Dummies book and then started the John Sandford murder mystery book that's been waiting for two weeks to be read. I have several other genealogy books waiting to be read and reviewed, so the games give me a chance to do that. I was back online at 10 p.m., read everything, posted the CVGS Research Group Summary on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 3.0 hours on CVGS Research Group, and 1.0 hour in online family trees.
