Randy's Genealogy Day - 25 November 2009

A decent genealogy day - some blogging, some online research, the CVGS meeting, and some database work.

* Read email, blogs and Twitter before posting Creative Coffins and (Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Family Photographs: Post 81 -- My Red Fire Engine. Wrote Kemp and Sovereen Lands in Norfolk County, Ontario to publish in the early afternoon.

* Got cleaned up, then worked on the Putman/Martin/Rolfe info that Mark Putman sent this morning. He's probably solved the Sarah Martin puzzle, but the evidence is thin.

* Left at 10:45 a.m. for McDonalds for lunch, then to the library for work on a query, and then the CVGS monthly program meeting - Georgie Stillman doing the Heirloom Discovery Day. Was home by 2:30 p.m.

* Took a short nap, back online at 3:45 p.m., read everything, worked more on the Putman/Martin/Rolfe puzzle. Found some data on WorldConnect, but not the link between Martin and Putman, there is no data. Onomastics are almost persuasive, and locality is important too. Need land and probate records!

* In for dinner at 5:30, watched news until 6:30, then back online and wrote Ruth and her Grandma Genie Camp. Did more work on the Putman/Martin/Rolfe puzzle.

* Wrote two posts for SSDC Graveyard Rabbit about Calvary Cemetery in San Diego.

* Worked in database adding census citations and fixing sources. Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 11.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 4.0 hours researching and writing blog posts, 2.5 hours on CVGS meeting, 2.0 hours on Putman/Martin research and 1.0 hour in database.
