Genealogy Journal - 04/26/09

Got a good nights sleep and was rarin' to go ... to church. Then home for genealogy fun.

After breakfast and before church, I read my email and blogs and Twitter, and posted the Best of the Genea-Blogs post written last night. Off to church a 9:30, and home by 11:40 a.m., and jumped right into the Scanfest that started at 11. I lasted until 2 p.m., and got 30 scans of about 55 pictures from my grandfather's box done - these are mostly orphan pictures put into a plastic bag 20 years ago - some good ones. There are plenty more pictures from four generations to scan. At 2, I went in to watch the Padres game - they lost 8-3 to the Pirates - and took a little nap.

At 3:30, I came back to the computer and wrote three posts on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog - Genealogy Software Review Summary, CVGS Spring Saturday Seminar Review - Part 1: "Doing a Reasonably Exhaustive Search" and CVGS Spring Saturday Seminar Review - Part 2: "Solving Your Brickwall Problems" Panel . It was dinner time, so I had my Dinty Moore beef stew since Linda was out with her friend, and came back to the computer to read everything, tweet and answer some email. At 9, I went in and watched Desperate Housewives, and daughter Lori called to coordinate her visit in May with our schedules. Then I wrote this post and I'm done.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter and Facebook, 2.5 hours on the Scanfest, and 3.0 hours writing blog posts.
