Randy's Genealogy Journal - 18 October 2009

Not much of a genealogy day, although the baseball game was so bad that I did more than I thought I would!

* Read email, blogs and Twitter before church, left at 9:35 a.m. Good to see Jay back from Norway trip and John from Midwest vacation.

* Home from church at 11:35, finished up the Best of the Genea-Blogs post and had lunch, watched football games, read the paper, had a nap.

* Back at 2:30 p.m., posted CVGS October 2009 Newsletter is Online and New or Updated Genealogy Databases - October 2009 on Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. Sent email to CVGS list about next Saturday's seminar at John's request.

* Printed off my OASIS class handouts, modified presentation and copied all to the flash drives.

* Back to watch end of football game, had another nap, watched baseball game, ate dinner, gave up game in 4th inning.

* Back online at 6:30 p.m., worked more on the Genealogy Vacations presentation. Need to scan lots of pictures and make some Google maps.

* Worked in my FTM 16 master database - deleting duplicate people (from when I merged five databases into one) and adding source notes to some. Added cousin Laura's line also. Tried to find SSDI entries for some distant cousins. Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 6.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter and Facebook, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on OASIS class stuff, 1.5 hours on presentation, and 1.0 hour on genealogy database.
