REGISTER: DearMYRTLE Webinars – April 2018

DearFRIENDS,

Tony Proctor, our man in Ireland, has he developed a webinar dedicated to figuring out how to cite a document image on a website where static (always there) URLs are non-existent. Register now for his webinar titled BREADCRUMBS & SOURCES: How to cook better citations for problematic websites. Its coming up on Wednesday, 4 Apr 2018.

We’re also looking forward to Carol Kostakos Petranek’s two-part GreekGen Study GroupPerhaps you know her as the co-director of the Washington, DC Family History Center (in Kensington, Maryland). She also serves as a Citizen Archivist at the National Archives (US) and in the FamilySearch digitization project at the Maryland State Archives.

rootsfinder
00:53:10 Cousin Russ: From Randy Seaver’s GeneaMusings Blog we explored “RootsFinder Delivers Powerful New Tools to Genealogists for FREE”  http://www.geneamusings.com/2018/02/rootsfinder-delivers-powerful-new-tools.html NOTE: This is the rootsfinder video Randy recommends viewing. Congrats to Dallan Quass and Heather Henderson for coming up with an online tree environment with hinting, to-do lists, source indications, and even some reports.

Cyndi Ingles (www.CyndisList.com) said “Yesterday I had 3 different people ask me if I had any webinars recorded. They each told me that they want to be able to share them at their local society meetings. I told them that the recorded webinars aren’t meant to be shown at a group meeting. They are for individuals only, often behind a subscription or membership wall. I said they must read the terms of service and that they *must* get the permission of the webinar host and the speaker. 2 of the ladies said, “Oh, it’s only for my small local group. Under 10 people.”  Source: https://www.facebook.com/cyndi.ingle2/posts/10215981604279694

01:07:03 Jacqueline Wilson: It is just plain rude!
01:07:54 June Butka: Sometimes people do not make it clear in their request that they are willing to pay. I know a few years back I asked to show a webinar becasue our society lost its speaker due to ilness at the last minute. I did not make it clear the society was willing to pay in my first post in my rush to make the request.
01:08:19 Larry Naukam: I was at a rock concert a few years ago, and the performer stopped and called out the offender
01:10:19 Valerie Lisk: By day 4 my brain is not processing, but when the presenter says “do not record.” I do not record. It’s just good manners.
01:12:16 Randy Seaver: I encourage attendees to take photos of my screen when I do my “Ancestry – Be a Family History Detective” talk at libraries and groups. They also get a two page handout. All of what I share in that talk is public and shared many times. I think that encourages beginners to start family history collecting and research.
01:14:54 Hilary Gadsby: The speakers should be able to decide what they want unless the organiser has made it clear what they want at the start.
01:15:08 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Copying someone’s slides via a camera or video is very different than taking notes at their presentation. Also there are many, many free presentations that folks studying genealogy can use to learn from – these videos, FamilySearch, the first presentations by many societies. It’s just wrong to copy when the speaker asks you not to do that!
01:18:55 Randy Seaver: Of course, you could do an outline of your detail handout to those societies that want it public. A lot of the RootsTech handouts are just outlines.
01:20:05 Larry Naukam: We have a lawyer who is a society member, and he keeps us on the proper path

IMAGE: DearMYRTLE has added this information and citation (optional) for her grandmothers Social Security Death Index entry to make it easier for folks to find Frances.

01:21:07 Cousin Russ: New Option on the Social Security Death Index Record from Ancestry http://ftmuser.blogspot.com/2018/02/new-option-on-social-security-death.html
01:22:34 Randy Seaver: This would be really helpful for millions of John Smiths that don’t give a middle name
01:23:42 Jacqueline Wilson: I have family living in Chariton, Iowa!
01:24:52 Joanne Shackford Parkes: I like the View/Add alternate information fields in Ancestry — didn’t know it had been added to more documents! I do a name study of Shackford’s and am frequently adding alternative info when someone makes a transcription error to make a correction (i.e. that it was Shackelford, Shackleford, or some other variation.). I get it that Russ doesn’t agree on indexes but I do find these notes very helpful.
01:25:06 Valerie Lisk: I correct surnames I know. If it’s indexed Sisk instead of Lisk or Bonkhead instead of Bankhead.
01:25:08 Larry Naukam: I have an uncle for I am sure is deceased -and his children from his 4 marriages do not know when he died.
01:25:40 Randy Seaver: For the SSDI, you have to get the actual SS-5 card to find the maiden name or middle name. The Social Security Applications and Claims database often has those, and the parents names too
01:26:40 Randy Seaver: but not every person in the SSDI has a SSA&C entry
01:28:08 Joanne Shackford Parkes: This alternative information field is just that, alternative information, it doesn’t change the index itself, just might lead someone to the right source if it had been indexed incorrectly or may lead someone to a possible source if the index didn’t have enough information (i.e. maiden name, or misspelling).
01:28:57 Larry Naukam: Last week during my shift at the FHC I had a young user who could not read cursive!
01:29:40 Randy Seaver: When the addition is made to a database like this, the addition/correction should be displayed below the indexed information, not replace it. I think that’s what Ancestry will do.
01:33:07 Donna Burleaud: Perhaps its better to add a ‘comment’ to the side…
01:34:43 June Butka: A good example is of index not making changes unless you can view the image is 3 Valentine Colby born to the same parents. Each name was spelled different was and birth dates were different
01:35:35 June Butka: I agree with Cousin Russ.
01:36:16 Hilary Gadsby: The trouble with most of the indexes is that they are not originals and have required interpretation
01:36:23 Dave Robison: Hey Bruce….Good to see you here!!
01:38:00 Dave Robison: Great conversation and timely for me. I’m doing “Transcription vs. Abstraction vs. Extraction” at a local genealogy club tonight. This will add some additional discussion…

1939 Register

01:39:27 Cousin Russ: https://www.findmypast.com/1939register
01:40:55 Larry Naukam: All genealogists come upon GIGO -garbage in, gospel out
01:43:27 June Butka: The blog I’m currently working on is a good example of why it is best to look at the original, not an index. 3 valentine Colby’s. Census has Colby/Colbey/Colley or Volintin/Valllentin/ Valentine/Voltin are different spellings and people.

01:44:44 Cousin Russ: New England Regional Genealogical Conference Announces 2019 Keynotes http://www.nergc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/NERGC-2019-E-zine-1.pdf

WWII_CombinedGraphics

00:50:57 June Butka: Don’t give up on Message Boards. (Years later is an awesome find.)

00:55:39 True Lewis: Thanks to my Dad serving in WW2 with the 470th Amphibious Truck Unit – Colored Troops.

00:56:47 Betty-Lu Burton: So some of the [RootsTech] presenters already know if they are live-streamed but not all.
00:57:05 Jacqueline Wilson: I had the privilege of meeting Jennifer at the Pritzker Military Museum & Library!!!!

00:59:07 Jennifer Holik: To learn more about WWII Research, books available, articles and more, please visit http://wwiirwc.com The World War II Research and Writing Center. New book releases will be announced through our newsletter later this month.

01:00:18 Cousin Russ: English and Welsh Marriage Certificates to now list mother’s maiden name. Thanks for sharing http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/english-and-welsh-marriage-certificates.html
01:00:51 Betty-Lu Burton: I think a lot of people will be surprised when the USA celebrate the 100th anniversary of women being able to vote.
01:04:17 Cousin Russ: Free access to FindMyPast B, M and D through 8 Feb https://www.genealogybargains.com/free-access-findmypast-birth-marriage-death-census-records-week
01:04:59 Linda Stufflebean: I have Southern Swedish roots.
01:05:02 Betty-Lu Burton: just Norwegian
01:06:05 Dave Robison: I have dozens of Swedish ancestors through mtDHA results at Family TreeDNA. However, they all must be quite a bit far back as I have never been able to ID any MRCA’s

WorldCat

01:06:14 Cousin Russ: Looking for a book? Try WorldCat http://www.worldcat.org/title/conrad-weisers-account-book-1746-1760/oclc/8283879
01:06:23 June Butka: I love World Cat.
01:06:27 Danine Cozzens: Just found it a few days ago! Also can find libraries.
01:06:53 Jacqueline Wilson: I use both World Cat & OCLC. And I have found several that I can get thru inter-library loan.
01:09:21 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Love WorldCAT! Us it to research the names of Charles Shackford’s sheet music. Sometimes once I know the name of the music I can find a digital version! Do save the locations but those are sometimes very far away.
01:12:20 Yvonne Demoskoff: I’m making a list of those kinds of digitized books (view only at FHL) to look at when I’m at RootsTech
01:12:46 Dave Robison: Not today, but in a future MWM, we could discuss DPLA.
01:17:41 True Lewis: LoL. Fort Knox. I see it everyday.
01:18:23 Yvonne Demoskoff: Good tips; thanks, Myrt!
01:18:32 Randy Seaver: I went to San Diego FamilySearch Library on 1/24 and looked for things I can’t access at home – got 52 images – see http://www.geneamusings.com/2018/01/visited-san-diego-familysearch-library.html
01:21:25 Jacqueline Wilson: And it is not free to borrow a book.
01:21:35 Karen Trearchis: I can’t find the article on that page.
01:21:55 Valerie Lisk: What is 6 degrees of separation? [Note: See 6 Degrees of Separation at WikiPedia/]

RootsTech Smartphone App
01:22:43 Cousin Russ: https://www.rootstech.org/
01:22:57 June Butka: More cousins daily since Christmas DNA gifts results coming in now..
01:23:06 Randy Seaver: Paul Woodbury article on DNA in http://www.geneamusings.com/2018/02/guest-article-going-beyond-ethnicity.html
01:23:16 Jacqueline Wilson: Blaine Bettinger has some great relationship charts that shows possible inheritance patterns. This really helps with adoption relationships
01:24:23 Karen Trearchis: Thank you Randy.

01:26:30 Susan Ennis: Just heard talk from Blaine Bettinger two weeks ago; key point from him: remember to click on the range for your results (i.e. 6%-22% of an ethnicity). Use this to correlate with results from cousins or siblings. Differences are normal. We only get a portion of our DNA from each ancestor.

NL should be Netherlands

01:26:56 Cousin Russ: Yvette Hoitink – How software corrupts our trees https://www.dutchgenealogy.nl/corrupt-trees
01:27:05 John Laws: I’ve enough to keep my busy every day without DNA
01:28:23 Susan Ennis: A narrow range of the percentages indicates a more accurate result. I had not known that!
01:28:33 June Butka: It stresses the important to not use abreviations.
01:29:54 Randy Seaver: And it stresses to use accurate current country names so that you don’t fool readers and users
01:31:00 Karen Trearchis: The ethnicity results on my “myheritage” results sound reasonable to me as to my heritage. 44% North & West Europe (Irish, Scottish & Welsh; 38.9% South Europe (Greek) & 14% Eastern Europe (Balkan, East European. My background that I was aware of is Irish, a bit English, ?Welsh & Greek & a bit Albanian.)
01:31:47 Betty-Lu Burton: I use the index or abstract to try and determine if it is my family, but I then look at the image for the information I use in my software program

FindMyPast_1939Register
01:34:42 Cousin Russ: FindMyPast – 1939 Register https://www.findmypast.com/1939register
01:36:57 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Also, originally multiple sources listed the date of a marriage bann as the date of a marriage – seems that FamilySearch recently has added a field for marriage bans or marriage license so with recently indexed documents, this may have been fixed. However as mentioned earlier, when we can, we need to look at the original documents.
01:37:50 Hilary Gadsby: Understand what your record is and why it existed
01:39:13 Joanne Shackford Parkes: Also multiple birth records listed the place the birth was recorded — until you read the record you can’t tell that the specific line states the person was born in ex: Nashua, New Hampshire, not the place in Massachusetts where the birth was recorded. Does not seem to be a place to fix these indexing issues.
01:39:17 Hilary Gadsby: The closer you can get to original is the better

01:42:55 Randy Seaver: FMP says the 1939 Register was used to create ID cards up to 1952.
01:43:49 Pat Kuhn: my number of CM is different with my two cousins that are brother and sister
01:47:05 John Laws: For many years I used Chapmam codes but am now stanardising full address rather than abreviations
01:47:26 Randy Seaver: John, where do Chapman codes come from?

01:54:50 Jacqueline Wilson: Senf = mustard according to a German-English dictionary.
01:56:06 Karen Trearchis: I make jam.
01:56:41 Dawn Carlile: My grandmother was still cooking on a wood burning stove in the 1960s.
01:58:34 Karen Trearchis: My grandmother used to make the (Greek) pita dough to make spinach pie. My Dad told me she would roll out the dough with a broom stick on the kitchen table and would make it paper thin.
01:58:57 June Butka: Congratulations on the book.
01:59:35 Karen Trearchis: Sounds great!
02:00:10 June Butka: I learn to cook on a wood burning stove.
02:00:14 Pam Helm: Not sure how my Gram knew we were coming over to visit but she always had tea biscuits in the oven baking for us so we could have them hot with butter and a glass of buttermilk.
02:01:29 Valerie Eichler Lair: Some of the best times with my grandma and her sisters were spent in the kitchen. Great food and recipes shared.

02:02:06 Valerie Eichler Lair: No….I did *not* inherit their baking gene! LOL

02:04:57 Jacqueline Wilson: I have never heard of that term – home training – we called it good manners.
02:06:06 Jacqueline Wilson: However, my parents did not teach me about this. They did the opposite – I had to teach myself!

ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt – 29 Jan 2018

MondaysWithMyrt

Tune in to the archived version of our latest webinar – Mondays with Myrt held 29 Jan 2018. You’ll find selected chat dialog and the links we mention below this embedded video.

We looked at Pat Kuhn’s ancestor’s “young men’s” WWII draft card indexed at Ancestry pointing to the image on Fold3, and caution all to watch what information gets shared during a Family Tree Maker sync or RootsMagic share option.Many explained they manually update their personal database with images from hints on various websites. That way transcriptions are most accurate, and citations can be custom crafted.

DearMYRTLE is concerned when people use the FamilySearch prompt with possible names for temple work. These are prompts for research to ensure the name and identifying info is truly an ancestor. We find out what Elizabeth Shown Mills has to say about the necessity of citing a repository – there is one instance where it is essential.

Moving on, we tackled the various RootsTech passes (different days/prices) and that it’s best to download the handouts via computer so you can save the file with a recognizable name. Dropbox would make these available to any of your devices. One may take the TRAX train from the airport if your hotel does not have a shuttle. See the embedded map below.

Find out about hashtags, #GenChat, and Tweet Deck for what Cheri Passey calls “The fastest hour in genealogy!”

Selected Chat Comments

00:36:32 Sheryl Whisenhunt: Good Morning from California.
00:36:57 Bill West: Good morning from a gloomy south of Boston
00:37:18 Pam Helm: Good Morning
00:39:47 Lisa Gorrell: Good morning, everyone!
00:41:20 JohnLaws: Hi from a cold but bright North Berwick


Regarding Pat Kuhn’s U.S. WWII Draft Cards Young Men, 1940-1947 research at Ancestry. (Screen shot below is the search result for Pat’s ancestors George Charles O’Donnell, born 1922.)

George Charles O'Donnell's WWII Draft Card

00:44:31 Deb Andrew: She only needs the Fold3 subscription, doesn’t have to upgrade the Ancestry account.
00:51:41 Betty-Lu Burton: The age is wrong. The card says 19 Ancestry says 20
00:54:04 Bill West: This is why I’m leery of syncing my Ancestry & RootsMagic trees. I download all records to my HD the old fashioned way and enter all data from the image,itself, not the transcription.
00:56:01 Lisa Gorrell: Be careful. This collection is not complete. Keep checking back. I did not find my two grandfathers’ cards. But I do have them from NARA.
00:57:04 June Butka: I found that names were added to my family Search tree that I didn’t add. I also found I could not add a second wife if the other wife’s name is already there.
00:58:09 RandySeaver: This is why I don’t attach records from Ancestry to my RootsMagic tree, and create my own source citatyions.
00:58:45 HilaryGadsby: Look at what the dataset covers I am looking for someone born in Illinois but they are not online yet.
00:59:39 Marian Koalski: I’m opinionated too, Randy. And Ancestry’s citations don’t have the needed info to re-find the record, even if you overlook their whimsical formatting
01:00:24 June Butka: It was a record hint I was trying to add. I can add them independently.

FamilySearch Temple Prompts

01:00:25 Betty-Lu Burton: FamilySearch will split large databases into smaller groups so they can start to get the information out sooner. Los Angeles County Death records are in at least 4 groups and we are working on reviewing the 3 and 4 groups. Still have a long way to go
01:00:46 HilaryGadsby: I have added second wife at Family Search
RootsMagic01:06:47 RandySeaver: duplicate Facts occur in RootsMagic when you merge a person with another

01:11:04 Cousin Russ: GeneaWebinars Calendar of Hangouts, Webinars and Online Chats this coming week: http://www.GeneaWebinars.com
01:12:24 RandySeaver: My research/opinion/news/stuff blog is www.geneamusings.com
01:14:38 HilaryGadsby: Can you share a calendar with just a few people?
01:16:12 RandySeaver: Way back when, I entered only libraries and public repositories because that’s where I found books or records. The repositories I entered 15 years ago are still in my source records.
01:16:28 Betty-Lu Burton: If it is on line then it has a URL and not a repository. Is not a repository a brick and morter building?
01:18:26 HilaryGadsby: Putting something online publishes it but what is published may only be an image not the original. What you cite depends upon what you see.
01:21:04 RandySeaver: Launa – I would state that in the repository field, and/or in the source comment field in RootsMagic

Elizabeth Shown Mill’s writes “Repositories need to be named when we have visited a facility to use an unpublished record that does not exist anywhere else except that facility.”  https://www.facebook.com/elizabeth.shownmills/posts/1214556458675665

01:24:06 June Butka: The box wasn’t checked off above the previous link that said not shareable.
01:26:34 Marian Koalski: I think entering the repository is useful to everyone in the case of a rare book, too.
01:28:13 Cousin Russ: Linda – The Blog has a search field


01:28:22 Cousin Russ: https://www.rootstech.org
01:28:50 Cheri Passey: Dave, can’t wait to meet you in person at RootsTech!
01:30:11 Lisa Gorrell: This will be my first time at RootsTech. Couldn’t believe how many classes there are!
01:31:14 RandySeaver: It took almost an hour last night to download the Wednesday handouts from http://app.core-apps.com/rootstech2018/events/view_by_day?tracks&type
01:31:21 Cheri Passey: So glad you will be there, Lisa!
01:31:55 RandySeaver: I’m going to download each day on different nights – it’s boring and requires attention to detail
01:32:47 Yvonne Demoskoff: Some of the labs are already filled up; darn.
01:33:38 Betty-Lu Burton: They still do not have the broadcast classes listed yet
01:34:38 RandySeaver: Betty-Lu – they usually announce them a week or so before it starts. You can sometimes suss it out by the Hall it uses. I think Hall C.
01:35:01 Betty-Lu Burton: Thanks Randy

RootsTech Smartphone App
01:37:26 Cousin Russ: 7 Ways the Mobile App Will Enhance Your RootsTech Experience https://www.rootstech.org/blog/7-ways-the-mobile-app-will-enhance-your-rootstech-experience [NOTE: The RootsTech mobile app, sponsored by WordPress, is now available for download from the App Store and the Google Play Store. ]
01:37:46 Yvonne Demoskoff: On the app, when I click to view Exhibit Hall in “Maps”, it closes the app; does anyone have this problem, too?
01:38:33 HilaryGadsby: Not tried it yet Yvonne
01:39:16 Yvonne Demoskoff: Oh ok, Hilary
01:39:34 RandySeaver: When I save the handout, I edit the file name for speaker name and title of the talk. Example: “Thomas Macentee – Using pinterest”
01:39:44 RandySeaver: It was the same thing as last year.
01:40:02 HilaryGadsby: Yvonne I will try after the webinar
01:41:40 Yvonne Demoskoff: Thanks, Hilary!
01:42:16 Dawn Carlile: That is what I did last year. I copy the title off the screen.

[NOTE:Here’s a Google Map of downtown Salt Lake City. Br sure to look for Harmon’s, our local grocery store with the great deli-department we mentioned during this show.]


01:43:53 HilaryGadsby: Going to Blue Lemon for Commonwealth Dinner this year
01:45:08 Yvonne Demoskoff: The Holiday Inn Express is across the street from the south entrance to the Salt Palace; very convenient
01:45:22 Dawn Carlile: Blue Iguana is excellent for Mexican food and the Siegried’s Deli is great.
01:46:29 Dawn Carlile: And they have a food court with lots of options at City Creek.
01:47:53 Dawn Carlile: If you need exercise you can walk to Harmon’s where they have a wonderful salad bar and you can eat upstairs or take it with you.
01:49:12 Yvonne Demoskoff: My husband and I bought a few food items from Harmon’s to bring back to our room at the hotel.
01:50:17 Linda Stufflebean: Hope the GeneaBloggers meet for lunch again at the Blue Lemon. [Yes, we will meet on Tuesday for lunch at 1pm.]
01:50:39 Cheri Passey: Me too. Linda!
01:51:05 HilaryGadsby: I need to check how to get from airport to The Radisson

01:51:21 Cousin Russ: One county’s switch to unalterable .PDF-A from microfilm – http://m.thecourierexpress.com/news/state/changing-of-the-guard-county-microfilm-department-going-digital/article_7951da66-ea95-596a-adb5-25bc105ab03b.html

TRAX logo
01:51:34 Lisa Gorrell: Hilary, you can ride the TRAX. [ This is the link to the Trax website: https://www.rideuta.com/Services/TRAX ]
01:51:44 Lisa Gorrell: I’m at the Radisson, too.
01:52:38 RandySeaver: We use the Express Shuttle service to/from SLC airport – only $10 per person
01:53:14 HilaryGadsby: When do you arrive?

GenChat
01:53:54 Cousin Russ: http://www.genealogygenchat.com/ #genchat
01:54:31 Cheri Passey: #genchat is so much fun! I call it the fastest hour in genealogy! I learn something new every time!
01:55:31 HilaryGadsby: I like Genchat but wrong time for me in the UK participate when I remember if I can

01:57:09 HilaryGadsby: I have used tweetdeck in the past
01:59:27 Cheri Passey: I use Tweetchat.com . One you enter the hashtag and join the group, it automatically puts it in for you.

02:00:23 RandySeaver: I’ve used Tweetchat and you get only the #genchat items in last first order. You can upload your message too.
02:00:41 Cheri Passey: Anna, that just means it will tweet into the chat with your account. It doesn’t produce tweets for you, it just shares what you tweet into the group.
02:03:15 AnnaMatthews: Thank you, Cheri. That’s good to know because I wanted to check it out.
02:03:42 Cousin Russ: The Legal Genealogist Judy Russell discusses obtaining DNA from a deceased relative. http://www.legalgenealogist.com/2018/01/28/another-look-at-dna-life-after-death/

02:08:19 HilaryGadsby: I might make it to Game Night in February
02:09:25 HilaryGadsby: I will miss MwM on Monday after RootsTech as will be travelling home from SLC.

02:10:43 Cousin Russ: @laurie_pratt writes A Letter to a Stranger https://threebranchtree.com/2017/02/07/a-letter-to-a-stranger/ #dna #genealogy
02:09:58 June Butka: It is a well written letter.
02:10:16 RandySeaver: I will miss the 2/26 MwM because I will be flying in after noon that day.
