Genealogy Journal - 05/12/09

I was up pretty early, and reading email, Twitter and blogs before 7:30 a.m. I posted German court upholds ban on lengthy last names after seeing it in the newspaper this morning. Had fun with it - found a really long name of a person by Googling for it. Researched and wrote Ancestry Quirks - Arkansas Database Content Errors and set it to post around noon. Maybe A.com will see the post and fix this obvious Content problem. Finished my handout for the Ancestry.com 101 presentation and sent it off to the CGSSD program person. Hopefully it will be copied for Saturday. Got cleaned up and left at 9:45 a.m. for Fredericka Manor where we had a joint CVGS meeting with their residents. I'll write about it tomorrow. Got a nice talk by Pam Journey, a free lunch, and a quick tour of the facilities - pretty high class retirement living.

I was home by 2:30, and worked on adding content to the Ancestry.com 101 presentation. Found some pictures online and watched the recent webinar which contributed some content. At 5, I stopped and went in to watch the Padres-Cubs game and ate dinner, finished the paper, talked to my grandsons, and read some of my book while my Padres lost 6-2 (lost 4 straight, and 17 out of 21).

At 7:45 p.m., I was back on the computer, read everything, worked on the presentation content some more, and posted Using LiveRoots.com - Post 2. Did some annotating on the presentation before writing this post.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.0 hours writing blog posts, 4.0 hours at Fredericka Manor, and 3.0 hours working on the presentation.
