Genealogy Journal - 15 October 2009

Stayed home all day, celebrated my dad's 98th birthday by thinking about him and his "increase." Did some useful genealogy work too.

* Read email, blogs and Twitter before writing Learning new Search Tricks. Having learned them, added some pages to the presentation - up around 75 pages now in 50 minutes...gotta talk fast on Saturday!

* Submitted my earlier post to the Carnival of Genealogy, wrote CVGS Research Group Meeting Summary on 14 October and had lunch at home.

* Wrote AB 130 signed Into Law - California Vital Records Access and reviewed the legal language. May be wrong, but maybe it will restrict access to records, or at least prohibit posting of records on the Internet.

* Read everything, and reviewed Tom Kemp's presentation on Genealogy in the Cloud. Checked Twitter and Facebook. At 4:45, went in to read paper, watch TV and watch ball game. Had dinner.

* Came back to computer at 6:30 p.m., reviewed the TGF review article again and participated in the monthly TGF chat. After chat, went in to watch end of game.

* Back on at 9 p.m. and read everything, then searched for awhile in San Francisco Chronicle newspaper for those elusive Seaver folks. Some interesting articles. Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter and Facebook, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on AB130, 1.0 hour on presentation, 1.0 hour on Kemp's presentations, and 1.5 hours working in
