Genealogy Journal - 15 June 2009

Already half way through June! Seems like just yesterday was Memorial Day, but it was three weeks ago. Crossed two more tasks off the list today...getting there! One major task remaining before going to the Jamboree in a week and a half.

* On the computer by 8 a.m., read email, Twitter and blogs, then launched into Finding 1851 Canada Census Images - Post 3 because there is more than one page on the 1851 Canadian census. Went looking for more blog fodder - read the FH101 site for awhile - good stuff there. Got cleaned up, came back and read everything before Linda grabbed the computer at 11:30. Ate lunch.

* At 12 noon, I called into for a discussion about Member Connect. Interesting sneak peek - will blog about it when it is announced. Putzed around in before going back to and writing is a Great Resource.

* Decided to tackle the long overdue email answers - especially about the Seaver genealogy material. Added data to my Seaver database and wrote six emails to Seaver correspondents, some two months old. Embarrassing. Got the email list down to 13 to answer!

* Reviewed and polished the Genealogy - Be an Ancestry Detective! presentation again. Started the two-page handout - hope I can squeeze everything in.

* At 5 p.m., went in to watch TV, read the paper and eat dinner. Back online at 6:30 p.m. to finish off the handout and polish the presentation a bit more. Up to 94 slides now - yikes! An hour, easy!

* Looked for song lyrics so I could enter Bill West's contest. Decided to send in what I did two years go - Searchin' and Ge-ne-al-o-gy. Then looked for my post of my father in a swimsuit and submitted that for the Carnival of Genealogy. Seems like I have posts for almost everything already written!

* Wrote up My Daily Three and posted it, then tweeted it and checked in on Facebook before writing this post.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 1.0 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.5 hours working in my Seaver database, 3.0 hours on the presentation, 1.0 hour on, and 0.5 hour on
