Randy's Genealogy Day - 19 November 2010

Stayed home today and did genealogy things all day!  Made a little database progress, even made a little research progress.

*  Read email and blogs, and wrote New England Historical and Genealogical Register - Volume 164, Number 4 (October 2010) Table of Contents.  Read the issue too.  Learned something!

*  Worked in for awhile finding Brigham and Newton data, and added source citations to database. 

*  Reviewed my Thomas J. Newton material and wrote Using the FAN Club Principle - Thomas J. Newton, Father of Sophia Newton (1834-1923) - Post 1 in effort to move the ball here.  Lots of checking back and forth to get things right - kept adding items to the database.

*  Loaded FTM 2010 on the laptop and FTM 16 on the desktop, and finished off the S's Place Names.  Got sources into source field and counties assigned. 

*  Went in at 5:30 p.m. to watch TV, have dinner, and read the paper. 

*  Back online at 6:30 p.m., read everything, tried to find NEHGR source online and failed, answered email, wrote two posts for Saturday, checked Facebook, and then wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 10.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 1.0 hour reading blogs, 3.0 hours writing blog posts, 2.0 hours working in, 1.5 hours working on FAN Club problem, and 2.5 hours working in the database.
