Homework: What does SHE Say? Study Group - 4 Sept 2015

 

DearREADERS,
In preparation for our final session of the What Does SHE Say? Study Group, we are reading from Chapter 2 of Evidence Explained (see below) and completing our homework before attending the study group session. The goal is for panelists and community participants to share specific, real-life scenarios as we consider assimilating concepts in EE3 to improve research outcomes.  

Our FINAL session will include a research case study from start to finish over a 30 year period, concerning the marriage of Lowell S. Froman and Frances Irene Goering. The last piece of the puzzle was put in place only this past week by panelist Lacey Frazier. We will explore citations made by Ol' Myrt here along the way. We'll deal with discursive commentary, some slightly conflicting evidence and disparate points of view from family members. What emerges is Myrt's developing understanding of the source of the source when it comes to citing information items collected along the way.

We shall see how the research question "When were they married?" wasn't truly answered reliably by many of the sources DearMYRTLE  chose to rely upon in the past.


This week's homework includes some required elements, including crafting four citation samples to insert in our class' WDSS - EE3 Study Group Citation Samples Google sheet.

Syllabus

Elizabeth Shown Mills, Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2015). [Book available from the publisher at http://www.genealogical.com and in digital format from the author's website http://www.EvidenceExplained.com]

Friday, 28 Aug 2015 - EE - Chapter 2 Fundamentals of Citations


Focus Statement (suggested by panelist +Lisa Gorrell .)
"What matters is that understanding.
Sources come in endless forms, as well as types. There’s not just one kind of probate record. Or marriage record. Or court record. Records may be bound in books or kept as loose papers in a packet. They may be held by the person or agency who created them. Or they may be part of a collection, that's part of a series, that's part of a record group in a distant archive."

AncestryDNA Shared Matches




DearREADERS,
You've hear about the new AncestryDNA Shared Matches with the "father" and "mother" buttons? Angie Bush, MS demystifies this for Ol' Myrt in our video recording today.




We took at look at this from an "older" person's point of view (where my parents weren't tested before they passed.) We also took at look at Angie's Shared Matches where she could focus on either her father's side or her mother's side of the family since her progenitors have taken these DNA tests.

Basically, I see this Shared Matches as a way to "pivot" and concentrate on only those of my autosomal DNA matches on one part of my tree without having to skip and scroll through the multitude of other ancestor matches. This facilitates communication, particularly where the first few have either very small trees, or no public trees.

Call for Topics: WACKY Wednesday




DearREADERS,
So it seems that whilst Ol' Myrt here is out to dinner practically every Wednesday night escorted by Mr. Myrt, one of my very distant cousins hosts a hangout with +Cousin Russ . Who knew?

I've heard by the grapevine that WACKY Wednesday is quite different from Mondays with Myrt hangouts where we talk about anything crossing our genea-desks. WACKY Wednesday is designed to focus on one topic, and one topic alone during the 60 minute session. These are links to a few previous sessions:

Ancestral Quest is Now Available for Mac

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: This morning during the last few minutes of Mondays with Myrt, our friend +Patricia Kuhn explained she has begun using Ancestral Quest for Mac. Rather than import a GEDCOM file, she chose to type in all direct-line ancestors for six generations. She reports basic data entry was straightforward and intuitive. She accepted Ol' Myrt's request to attach two or three documents, complete with transcriptions and source citations and report back next week. It's always good to see how our friends are using websites and software. Thank-you to for assisting us in this manner.

Below please find the official press release received late Thursday from Ancestral Quest producer Gaylon Findley. He reports a soft roll-out of the program at the recent BYU Family History Conference.



Ancestral Quest is Now Available for Mac

Salt Lake City, Utah (August 19, 2015)Incline Software, LC announced today that Ancestral Quest™, its family tree software, is now available for Mac.

For over 20 years, Ancestral Quest has been a Windows program, providing excellent, easy-to-use yet comprehensive tools to millions of users worldwide, both professional and beginner. During that time, it has been sold directly by Incline Software, and licensed by others, often under different titles, including Ancestry Family Tree (AFT) by Ancestry.com and with more extensive adjustments as Personal Ancestral File (PAF) by FamilySearch. This powerful family tree record keeping program is now available to users of Mac. Ancestral Quest for Mac will run on OS X 10.7 and later.

Ancestral Quest for Mac simply downloads and installs directly to the Mac, without the need for additional software. Those who have used Ancestral Quest on Windows computers will find that AQ for Mac is the same program as AQ for Windows.

Overview of Ancestral Quest for Mac
Ancestral Quest for Mac allows users to record their family tree, including the names, dates and places of ancestors and descendants, and provides for the recording of notes and sources for each individual, as well as scrapbook collections for each person. AQ for Mac also allows users to print standard forms and charts such as Pedigree charts, Family Group Records, Ancestry and Descendancy charts, birthday and anniversary calendars, and scores of additional charts, lists and reports to help them review and share their family tree. AQ for Mac can create a web-site that can be uploaded to the Internet, showing whatever parts of a family tree users feel like sharing. It also generates a customizable research timeline, to help put ancestors in perspective of the times and events in which they lived, and provides users with a research log and manager to keep their genealogical research efforts organized.

Ancestral Quest provides an ability, unique for desktop family tree software products, to have several users work as a team on a single data file, from multiple computers anywhere in the world. This feature is called "Collaboration." Whether the user has a Windows computer or a Mac, team members will be able to work together with AQ's Collaboration system.

Ancestral Quest for Mac meets the same certification requirements with FamilySearch Family Tree (Family Tree) as its Windows counterpart. This means that users can upload portions of their personal family tree to the Family Tree, or download portions of the Family Tree into their personal file. Users can also synchronize individuals, families, and notes and sources for both individuals and families between their personal file and Family Tree. Additionally, like its Windows counterpart, Ancestral Quest for Mac allows users to search such online databases as those of Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org, along with other sites that can be added into Ancestral Quest's Internet search engine.

Ancestral Quest has won several awards over the years, including the 2009 FamilySearch award for "Most Comprehensive Syncing", which is indicative of the way AQ is not only easy to learn and use, but of paying attention to the important details required by genealogists. AQ was also awarded the 2009 FamilySearch award for "Best Listing Tool", which epitomizes the fact that AQ provides the most advanced tools for finding individuals and defining groups of individuals for various reporting and research tasks.

Benefits to PAF Users
Many PAF 5 users have moved, or are contemplating moving, from Windows computers to Mac computers. Because the Windows versions of PAF were derived from AQ, these PAF users will feel right at home as they use Ancestral Quest for Mac. Ancestral Quest for Mac can directly update a PAF 5 file, so current or former PAF 5 users can simply copy their PAF 5 file from their Windows machine to their Mac, and AQ will be able to open and work with their data, as is.

Summary
Incline Software™ developed Ancestral Quest in 1994, and has been enhancing it ever since.
In addition to English, Ancestral Quest is also available in German, French, Spanish, Danish, Norwegian, Hungarian and Swedish, with other language modules being developed. You can learn more about Incline Software, Ancestral Quest, and Ancestral Quest Basics, by visiting www.ancquest.com or calling Incline Software at 1-800-825-8864.

Ancestral Quest for Mac is expected to sell for $34.95. But for a limited time, it can be purchased at the same price as AQ for Windows, which currently is $29.95. Ancestral Quest Basics for Mac is a free version of Ancestral Quest, with all of the essential features of a family tree program available for free, but with the more advanced features locked. The free version will only be available for a limited time, so those wishing to take advantage of obtaining a full-featured, free genealogy program for Mac should act quickly. Ancestral Quest for Mac can be downloaded from www.ancquest.com/mac.

Response: Principles Part 1: What I learned from my family of color

DearREADERS,
Robin Foster just published a touching and relevant Principles Part 1: What I learned from my family of color in her Saving Stories genealogy blog. She says: "The world is in commotion everywhere you turn. That is a given, but the question is "What responsibility as a genealogist do I have in what I do and say?" I certainly do not think remaining silent is an option. In many respects, I feel that I have been prepared for this day and for the current battles. Through the research of my family, I have learned we find success if we can unite  around true principles. Differences will melt away as we cease to judge people by outward appearances and stop placing people in categories where we expect them to behave or think a certain way."

IMAGE: from Principles Part 1: What I learned from my family of color
Used with permission.

Ol' Myrt here likes that word "commotion" but I don't like the world's continued prejudice against people who appear different from myself. I don't hold to the old derogatory myths about African Americans, and I pray my children and grandchildren do not as well.
 
Every month in our genealogy hangouts we post the following collage inspired by the United Nation's Decade for People of African Descent honoring people of color. When I created the graphic around the UN's approved logo, I realized Cousin Russ and I welcome people from all walks of life to our neck of the genea-woods. We reach out to all regardless of race, color, creed or national origin with support for researching family and documenting cultural inheritance.

 

During today's Mondays with Myrt the subject came up again, You'll want to catch the first few minutes here:




My response to Robin via Facebook:
Through my tears, your beautiful message offers first the tender thought of love of family, one thing we have in common.

I love the stories about your parents. It made me recall things from my own childhood.


The loving tone you set in your writing brings into view your kindly attitude. I now imagine us sitting on a porch shaded by trees in a beautiful garden as we talk about things of the heart.

It pains me deeply to hear about the unjust behavior that keeps 'bursting' at the seams.

Society never seems to purge itself from the bitter hatred for those who appear different, in this case prejudice against people of color.

You wisely note that change is made first in our own hearts and then as we interact within our individual circle of friends and associates.

I pray my heart is softened and that I am teaching my children and grandchildren to conduct themselves in a good, industrious, happy and kind manner.

Thank you, Robin, for this powerful though heart-rending post. 

I'm glad we are having this discussion "on the porch" as it is among friends that peace and understanding can best be nurtured.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)

The goal is for panelists and community participants to share specific, real-life scenarios as we consider assimilating concepts in EE3 to improve research outcomes. This week's homework includes some required elements, including crafting  one or two citation samples to insert in our class' WDSS - EE3 Study Group Citation Samples Google sheet.

Syllabus

Elizabeth Shown Mills, Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace, 3rd edition (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2015). [Book available from the publisher at http://www.genealogical.com and in digital format from the author's website http://www.EvidenceExplained.com]

Homework Guidelines
http://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2015/08/wdss-study-group-homework-guidelines.html


Friday, 28 Aug 2015 - EE - Chapter 2 Fundamentals of Citations

Focus Statement
Among these options, The Chicago Manual's Humanities Style has been the most effective for history researchers. Evidence Explained is rooted in that style. However, most Evidence models treat original or electronic sources not covered by the manuals above, as well as some modifications that better met the analytical needs of history researchers..” (See EE3 - 2.2)





1. Required Provide an example of a single source from your own research, citing it in each of the following types. See EE3 - 2.4 and EE3 - 2.10.
  • Source List (bibliography)
  • Reference Notes (either first or subsequent)
  • Source Labels
 2. Optional In your own words, demonstrate an understanding of EE3 - 2.6 Copyright, Plagiarism & Fair Use by describing an incident where there was a disregard for a specific rule of thumb.

3.  Optional What are discursive notes and why does the author suggest we avoid them?

4. Optional After studying EE3 - 2.8, what differences should you make in your citations that concern the privacy of living individuals? Be specific. How can researchers ensure their private notes won't go public?

5. Optional How can the definition of a genealogy program's 'master source list' be reconciled by the author's guidance in EE3 - 2.10?

6. Optional Discuss provenance as it relates to history citations.

7. Optional What about the efficacy of citing indexes and finding aids? Think of an example from your own research where this has played a role.


9. Required Choose one of the citation types in the public Google Sheet, inserting an example using the Full Reference Note format. bit.ly/EE3_Chapter2Citations. Feel free to use the EE3 Index to guide your composition.

10. Required Describe the use of italics and quote marks in citing a source.

We will pick up with EE3 Organization at 2.38 in our homework for our final study group session in this series on 4 Sept 2015.
