My Genealogy Saturday - 17 August 2013

This was all CGSSD in the morning, a little database work in the afternoon, baseball in the evening, and reading afterwards.

*  Read email and blogs, packed up the laptop and headed off to the CGSSD meeting at 8:10 a.m.  got there at 8:45 and attended the interest group, led by Del.  Got to share some of the new features - good session!

*  Took a bathroom break, grabbed a snack, and set up for my presentation at 10:30 a.m.  That went well until the projector bulb went dark..Gary found a tabletop projector and set it up, but then the ceiling-mounted projector came on again, for another 20 minutes or so.  We used the table-top after that - the images were smaller but I got through it by 12.  First time that's happened to me - just glad that Gary had another projector.  Most societies have just one and it would be a lecture following the disaster.  Talked to some attendees afterward.  Met Edith, a 10th cousin vacationing from Oregon.

*  Home by 1 p.m. to eat lunch, then read, added to the Best Of post, tweeted about Surname Saturday - MOTT (England to colonial Rhode Island) and Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - This Week's Genealogy Highlight, which posted while I was away.  Answered some email too.

*  Went in at 2:15 p.m. to watch the LLWS game, took a fairly long nap, read the paper.  Online at 4 p.m. to read, then answered more email and worked in the database a bit.  

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch the LLWS game, then the Padres game, read the paper, ate dinner, and finished my Steve Berry book.  My Padres won 8-2 over the Mets (now 55-68).

*  Online at 9:15 p.m. to read, check Facebook, and write this post.  

Genealogy today was 7.0 hours (hey it was a weekend, cut me some slack!).
