My genealogy day - 8 October 2011

It was a full day, but it wasn't all genealogy.  Some friends made family history.

*  Read email and blogs, noted that Surname Saturday - PEIRCE (England > Massachusetts) posted, and then wrote Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Genealogy Database Statistics.

*  Packed up the laptop, and went off to the SDGS meeting in San Diego.  Met Linda Serna and we chatted for awhile - we exchanged cards.  Linda gave two excellent presentations on interesting topics - I loved the record examples she used in her talks.  What a wealth of experience and material.

*  High-tailed it down the freeway to Bonita for the CVGS Workshop at 1 p.m.  Shirley and Gary talked about Windows computer systems, then Gary and I talked about Family Tree Maker.  I installed FTM2012 on my laptop and loaded in a recent GEDCOM - it took about 90 minutes to do it. 

*  Left just before 3, and high-tailed it home.  We left at 3:15 for the barbecue restaurant to get food for Linda, then Io Sherry's house for the wedding at 4 p.m.  Saw cousin Ken Wing there and we talked some Wing family genealogy. 

*  Home just after 7 p.m. to watch baseball, then SDSU football game, read the paper, then my book.

*  Came in at 9 p.m. to read, add to the Best Of post, check Facebook and write this post.  SNGF had a great response tonight!

Genealogy today was 8.0 hours.
