Randy's Genealogy Day - 13 October 2010

A decent genealogy day - no distractions except for dinner.  No baseball.  Got to the library, blogged a bit, finished another task, worked in the database doing sources.  Cool.

*  Watched Leslie's segment on ABCs Good Morning America at 7:45 a.m., then read email and blogs, and posted (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 124: Lyle Carringer at age 3.

*  Researched and wrote   Obama, Palin, Limbaugh, Reid, Coulter, oh my... and then CGSSD Meeting on Saturday, 16 October set it for noon time.  Got cleaned up. 

*  Printed out some of the Whittle stuff, went to McDonalds for lunch at 11 a.m., then to library.  Talked to John for awhile, then set up room for CVGS Research Group meeting.  Meeting was from 12 noon to 2 p.m., then finished a query on the microfilm machine.

*  Home by 3 p.m., read everything, and wrote SDGS 9 October Seminar - Part 2:  Wrote Thomas MacEntee Joins 2010 Salt Lake Christmas Tour too.

*  Checked in on Facebook, then edited the SDGS seminar summary down to 800 words and sent to SDGS newsletter editor. 

*  Went in at 5 p.m. to watch TV, take a nap, read the paper, kill ants in the kitchen, put the trash out and eat dinner. 

*  Back online at 7 p.m., read everything, wrote CVGS Newsletter for October 2010  and CVGS Research Group Summary - 13 October 2010  plus two other posts on Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog. 

*  Opened database and started working on getting good sources in for my Richman/Rich/Marshman families in Hilperton in Wiltshire.  Found quite a few duplicate entries (due to combining two databases last year) and some "orphans" with no children, spouse or parents, which I deleted. 

*  Wrote this post, and I'm done. 

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 4.5 hours researching and writing 10 blog posts, 2.5 hours for CVGS at library, 1.0 hour working on seminar report, and 2.0 hours working in the database.
