Genealogy Journal - 16 July 2009

It was not a very good genealogy day...too much "real life" interference... and the Genealogy Wise chronicles.

* Actually slept in until 7:15, but was online by 8 a.m. and read email, blogs and Twitter. Tried Genealogy wise and it was really slow and/or non-responsive. Found out later that there was a DNS problem. Posted CGSSD Meeting on Saturday - Ann Montgomery on "FamilySearch" before getting cleaned up and ready for the day.

* Put Using GenealogyBank - Post 2: Seeing Search Results and scheduled it for later in the morning. Did some more GenealogyBank searching and then went off to lunch with my engineers retiree group at 11 a.m.

* Home by 12:45 p.m., and found the storm over censorship at Genealogy Wise. Too late to participate in it, could only commiserate. Read everything I could, and posted on GW About the modified contest, and they later took it all the way down - the right thing to do.

* Linda came home from Tami's house, and I helped unload shopping stuff and with the wash. Took a nap at 3:30 p.m. while she did her email.

* At 4:15 p.m., came in and watched the Genealogy Gems video with Thomas MacEntee. A great job by Thomas explaining his blogging prowess and Lisa in interviewing. Posted Thomas MacEntee's 15 minutes of fame.

* We left at 5 p.m. for the Padres game - ate dinner at The Tin Fish downtown listening to Joe Rathburn's music. Had fun singing along with "Put Me in Coach" and "Take me out to the Ballgame." Then to the game with great hopes - crushed by the Rockies 10-1. We left after 6 innings and were home by 9:50.

* Watched the end of the game, swatted flies, and came online to read everything and write this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 1.5 hours reading email and blogs, 0.5 hour on Genealogy Wise, 1.0 hour on Twitter and Facebook, 2.5 hours researching and writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on Genealogy Bank, and 0.5 hour watching GG video.
