Randy's Genealogy Day - 12 October 2010

Genealogy work almost all day, but had breaks in late morning and late afternoon.

*  Read email and blogs, then posted Tuesday's Tip - It Isn't All on the Internet!  Worked more on my SDGS seminar summary.  Got cleaned up.

*  Printed out the CVGS Newsletter to publish, and the mailing list.  Wrote FamilySearch Beta has a new look - Post 3: Getting Started.

*  Left at 10:45 a.m. for my eye doctor appointment, carrying my CVGS Newsletter publishing kit.  Eye exam turned out OK, still not using my "new" one-year old glasses, but they seem to be better than before. 

*  Got to UPS Store, copied, labelled, stamped, folded and taped the 31 copies in 30 minutes.  Mr. Efficiency!  Home for lunch at 1 p.m.

*  Answered several emails to empty the Inbox.  Read everything.  Wrote and posted SDGS 9 October Seminar Summary - Part 1: National Archives

*  Went in at 5 pm. to watch the baseball game, take a short nap, read the paper, eat dinner, and back online by 7 p.m.

*  Read everything, posted Leslie Albrecht Huber is on Good Morning, America (ABC) on Wednesday, and worked in database adding source citations to Fitz Randolph family.  Also checked for information on several ancestral families - in many case I'm the only one researching them!

*  Checked Facebook, wrote this post, good night!

Genealogy today was 8.5 hours - 1.5 hours doing email, 0.5 hours reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour working on seminar summary, 1.0 hour on CVGS Newsletter, and 2.5 hours working in my database.
