Randy's Genealogy Day - 5 November 2009

Started out as a genealogy day, and finished like one, but in the middle was ... granddaughters! A great family history day!

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, then wrote Are census records reliable for genealogy research?

* Did more San Francisco research on Joseph Whittle, and wrote More San Francisco Treats, and scheduled it for the afternoon.

* Left at 11 a.m. for the pharmacy to pick up my drugs, back home by 11:45 a.m.

* Got started on CVGS Newsletter - got everything in that I have - need several articles and other info from board members.

* Went in at 2 p.m. to take a nap, expecting the girls to be delivered by 3 p.m. or so, and they would stay two days/nights before Tami comes to pick them up. Then Tami called and said she needed to take them home tonight. She got here at 3:30, the girls came at 4:15, and we left for dinner at Rubio's in the valley at 5:15. Linda and I were home by 7 p.m. Tami and the girls headed home. It was fun seeing them and getting hugs, kisses, and smiles from them.

* Read everything, had to install the new Windows Live Messenger, read the ProGen chapter, checked Facebook, and at 8 p.m. started the ProGen chat with my group colleagues. We were done by 9 p.m.

* Watched Elissa Powell's presentation on the APG web site - excellent presentation. There are two others to watch, too. Then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter and Facebook, 2.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 2.0 hours on the CVGS newsletter, 1.5 hours on ProGen group, and 1.0 hour watching APG video.
