My genealogy weekend - 14 and 15 July 2012

This was a fairly full genealogy weekend, with some family history, and two Padres wins!!

1) Saturday, 14 July:

*  Read email and blogs in a hurry with the girls here - got the girls breakfast and was able to note that Surname Saturday - LA TOURETTE (France > New York) posted.

*  Packed up and left at 9 a.m. for the SDGS meeting and my two new presentations.  Ken had me ready to go by 9:45 a.m. and had a long extension cable so I could use the podium rather than sit by the projector.  The talks went well, and the ice cream at the break was my lunch.

*  Left SDGS at 12:45 p.m. and got to Bonita library by 1:15 p.m. for Shirley's CVGS workshop.  She had a short presentation on source citations, and discussion evolved to using software for citations.  Shirley showed how she uses Reunion, Gary had RootsMagic but had no sources.  

*  Home at 3 p.m. in time to note that Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your Own Newspaper Article posted and to talk to James a bit about jobs.  The girls got up, and Tami packed them up and they left at 4:30 p.m.  

*  On computer for awhile to read, then we had dinner, and I came back online and started doing some of the 1940 census comparisons.  Went in at 7:30 p.m. to find the Pads game in the 5th inning.  Pads won 7-6 with a steal of home and the winning run scoring on the overthrow in the 9th.  

*  Back online to add to the Best Of post, check Facebook, but didn't journal.

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours.

2)  Sunday, 15 July:

*  Read email and blogs, got Best of the Genea-Blogs - 8-14 July 2012 ready to post at noon.  We went off to church at 9;30a.m.

*  Home by 11:30 a.m. to read and work on 1940 comparisons some more, then went in at 12:45 to eat lunch and watch the Padres game. Had a nap, read the paper,a typical Sunday summer day.  Pads won 7-2 (36-54,at .400!  That's progress).

*   Online at 4:30 p.m. to work on the 1940 comparisons, and write CVGS Newsletter for July is Published and CVGS Research Group Summary - 11 July 2012.

*  Had dinner, then mowed the front lawn and watered the front plants.

*  Online at 7 p.m. to read, then write Chula Vista Genealogical Society Update and two posts for Monday. Did more work on 1940 comparisons.  Got OASIS talk reviewed/edited.  Answered some emails. Checked Facebook.  Started the next Best Of post.  Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 5.5 hours.
