Randy's Thanksgiving Day - 26 November 2009

Spent Thanksgiving doing genealogy - remembering the family, blogging a little, and searching for all of the Mulford Martins from New Jersey in 1700-1850 time frame. Kept me busy! Had dinner at Black Angus too - no stress, no mess, no cleanup...nice relaxing dinner.

* Read email, Twitter and blogs and posted Happy Thanksgiving! Copied I Am So Thankful from last year and modified it some, set it to publish at mid-day.

* Been thinking about how to sort out all of the Mulford Martins in my research puzzle. Went back through Ancestry, WorldConnect, Google Books, etc. and saved stuff this time. Downloaded a Martin GEDCOM from WorldConnect that sorts the family according to a Martin book. Haven't found the book, though! Worked through lunch and up to about 4 p.m. Went out and watered the front plants and got trash out for pickup.

* Left at 4:15 p.m. for Black Angus for roast turkey and trimmings dinner for $14.99. Pretty good - enough to eat, hot, no mess, no stress, no cleanup, can't beat it! We were home by 6:15 p.m.

* Watched the football game for awhile, back online around 8 p.m. to do more Mulford Martin searching. Got 1830, 1840 and 1850 census listings to see if I could match them up with the Martin database people. Yes and no! Found several interesting people, though. Wrote this post.

Genealogy today was 9.0 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 0.5 hour on Twitter/Facebook, 0.5 hour writing blog posts, and 7.0 hours doing online Martin research.
