Genealogy Journal - 11 June 2009

Almost an all-day genealogy day - stayed home, blogged, tweeted, researched, worked on the presentation, bought an Ancestry subscription and not much else.

* On computer by 8 a.m., read email, blogs and Twitter, then posted Canada Census Indexes at FamilySearch Record Search. The indexes kind of suck compared to other sites. Checked the commercial sites, answered some email, tweeted and Facebooked, read some genealogists web sites, got cleaned up, shopped for an deal, found none attractive so subscribed to for a year, made my Ancestry trees public, posted CVGS Research Group Summary - 10 June 2009 and Homemade Memorial at La Vista Memorial Park and before I knew it it was lunch time. Drat - time wasted.

* After lunch, posted Interesting WorldVitalRecords Online Poll and then got down to work on my library presentation for 22 June. Got down to the end, now need to move stuff around and add some humor if possible.

* At 5 p.m., went in to watch TV, read the paper, take a nap, eat dinner, wash dishes, water the plants in front.

* Back to the computer at 7 p.m., read everything, then worked on a friend's research downloading records for some of her families. She can't find anything in the census, but I can. Even found two passenger list records for three of her four immigrant families. Then decided to post US Subscription Deals before writing this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Facebook/Twitter, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour shopping, 2.0 hours on doing research, and 4.0 hours working on the presentation.
