Randy's Genealogy Day - 25 May 2010

Finished several projects today, and now the grandboys come to visit. Oh boy - my genealogy time will be greatly reduced, but my family history time will be maximized.

* Read email, blogs and Twitter, and posted Tombstone Tuesday -- Heck. Wrote NEHGS Building Collection of Digitized and Searchable Periodicals and set it for later in the morning.

* Realized I had not read the last two issues of NEHGR which I get via PDF download now, so read them and found several articles of interest - my ancestors or potential ancestors. Printed off those pages.

* Checked the Class 4 presentation and syllabus one last time, and had lunch - two slices of pizza. Linda came home and told me we had a lunch date at 12:30 - but I just had lunch! Printed off the syllabus and hightailed it to the Black Angus. Had salad and fries, brought the steak home.

* On the way home, went by the UPS Store to get copies made, was home by 2:30 p.m. Read everything, copied files to the flash drive, and went in at 3:30 to watch TV, read the paper and take a nap. Had a bite to eat at 4:30, packed up and was on the road by 5.

* Got to library at 5:10, set up for the Gen101 class, and talked until 7:40 p.m. when we stopped. Lots of compliments - think it went pretty well. Ruth and Gary had new badges with a golden G on it for taking the class. Also handed out certificates of completion.

* Home by 8:10, watched Padres to the end (beat the Cards 1-0, now 27-18). Then on computer at 9:40, read everything, wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.0 hour reading NEHGR, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 1.0 hour on presentation and syllabus, and 2.5 hours at CVGS Gen101 class.

Not sure how much blogging and research I'll do in the next week - may not even do SNGF or BOGB this week if workload is too much.
