My genealogy day - 30 March 2011

It was a busy genealogy day, at least until I got home at 2:30 pm.  Then it turned into a happy and fun day.

*  Read my email and blogs, then wrote (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 146: Gram, Mom and Nana and then put Jean Wilcox Hibben Series on National Archives Records together and set it for later in the morning.  Got cleaned up.

*  Printed out some papers for CVGS colleagues, ate lunch, and went off at 11:30 a.m. for the CVGS Program meeting at the library. 

*  Enjoyed the program, we had about 40 in attendance, and Paula Sassi went quickly through handwriting examples that show different traits (I know, some people don't believe graphology is scientific, I don't know) and then some handwriting examples from the 1700s to early 1900s.  She didn't analyze the personalities in much detail, though. 

*  Home from the library at 2:15 to find Tami and the grandgirls napping, so quickly posted Chula Vista Genealogical Society Seminar - Saturday, 2 April 2011.  Went in and took a nap with Lolo dancing for us.

*  Played with and enjoyed the girls for awhile, then we left at 4 p.m. for the shopping center, where we got some clothes for the girls, ate dinner at the food court, and shared an ice cream while Tami shopped by herself. 

*  Home by 7:15 p.m. to get the girls bathed, read to, brushed and bedded down.  Finally back online at 8:30 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, and work on a William Seaver murder post for Thursday.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 7.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 2.5 hours writing blog posts, 2.5 hours at the CVGS meeting, and 1.0 hour doing online research.
