Randy's Genealogy Day - 1 October 2010

Really not much of a genealogy day.  Stayed home until late afternoon, went visiting then out to dinner, and watched my Padres beat the Giants 6-4 to stay in playoff contention.

*  Read email and blogs, then wrote "Information, Please" article about NewsBank operations.  Went looking on GenealogyBank for articles about Whittle, McKnew, Spencer, found only what I already had.

*  Wrote UVPAFUG Presentations, read several of them, and got cleaned up. 

*  Copied file directories from desktop computer to flash drive to laptop in order to update laptop.  Installed the McAfee Security Suite (comes with my Cox internet subscription - who knew?) on the laptop.  Updated software on the laptop and got latest GEDCOM into RM4 and LFT7.   Ate lunch at home.

*  Wrote CVGS Program Review - "What Was Great-Grandpa Really Like?" on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog, and then on Genea-Musings.  

*  Revised my FORUM column a bit, and sent it off to the editor on deadline.  Wrote the Surname Saturday post for tomorrow.

*  We left at 4 PM to take food to church friends, then went to dinner at Oggi's Pizza out in Otay Ranch.  Home by 6:30 PM, and I read everything quickly.

*  Watched Padres game, read the paper, and checked TJ's site and Facebook on the laptop while watching the game. 

*  Came in after the game to write a post for Saturday and write this post. 

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing 7 blog posts, 1.0 hour on FORUM column, 2.0 hours doing file transfers.

Have the CVGS Fall Seminar on Saturday all day - will try to do some blogging tomorrow night.
