Wondering what else you guys use from certs.

example:
When you have a birth certificate do you maybe add a fact to the father that he was a Farmer (or whatever occupation) on the date that the birth was registered. And cite the birth cert as the source.

Or that his usual redidence was whatever was stated on the birth cert etc?

Just wondering how much info people are actually logging other that the 'critical' info.

How you organize your data is a personal choice. How do you want it to present? What are your needs? There are advantages to able to do a quick review of data in the profile, rather than going back to the document to refresh your memory.

All the data you find on document are pieces of a puzzle and clues to further your search. Transcribing the data and organizing helps to recreate an individuals history.
