Randy's Genealogy Day - 7 January 2011

This was a stay-at-home (except for 30 minutes) day devoted almost entirely to genealogy stuff...

*  Read email and blogs, wrote Useful Genealogy Resources Website and then More News about the 1940 U.S. Census Release, then got cleaned up.

*  Went to the Med Center for a blood test and the gas station and home in less than one hour.  Walked right into everything.

*  Worked a bit on the source citation list for 1900 census - got it from from 80 to 50 remaining.

*  Put New or Updated FamilySearch Historical Record Collections together - needed it for CVGS newsletter.  Wrote 18 boxes of history atchives donated  and Chula Vista Centennial - 1911 San Diego City Directory pages on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog.  Now I see the spelling error - do you?

*  Worked some more on the 1900 census source citations - got it down to 20.

*  Went in to have dinner and watch TV news - back online at 6 p.m. to work on CVGS Newsletter.  Got it finished then remembered two events, so changed the font size a tad to make space. Checked Facebook.

*  Wrote the Surname Saturday and SNGF posts for Saturday, plus added posts to the running Best of compendium.  Tomorrow is the all-day SDGS seminar so blogging will be light.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blog posts, 4.0 hours writing 7 blog posts, 2.0 hours working in the database, and 2.5 hours on the CVGS Newsletter.

Are you refering to the "atchives" instead of "ARCHIVES" ?? YUP!! Fingers type faster than brain telling the correct spelling again, huh?? LOL It happens to all of us!
