ARCHIVED: More creating promo graphics

DearREADERS,
Are you the social media or publicity chair for your society or family association? Maybe you have a blog you'd like to spruce up with catchy graphics. If so, this hangout is perfect for you. DearMYRTLE's newly discovered half-sister Millie demos Adobe Spark Post. (She thinks of it as creating a postER.) Then we take a brief look at Cheri Hudson Passey's favorite BeFunky.com. Another "in-the-cloud" resource for designing great promo graphics is PicMonkey.com. Then there is always the fall back - using PowerPoint or Google Slide to create a promo graphic by saving your opening slide as a .jpg or.png. (Ol' Millie prefers the .png format.)

Think brand recognition in colors, fonts and design.

ARCHIVED: ESM QuickLesson 13 Classes of Evidence - Direct, Indirect and Negative

DearREADERS,
Hilary Gadsby states "Evidence is not what we read, see or hear in a source. It is our interpretation of what the information in the source is telling us." In this study group session, we explore Elizabeth Shown Mills' three classes of evidence, how to craft a research question, the importance of correlating evidence and the importance of writing our "current thinking" when answering the research question. We also make the distinction between negative research results and negative evidence. WOW! We stayed an extra 34 minutes to get through this meaty subject.
  • Direct Evidence - explicit
  • Indirect Evidence - not explicit
  • Negative Evidence - not explicit

Donna B says "This was great! I'm beginning to understand how indirect evidence can be helpful." She also likes the use of a chart to keep track of all information items that factor in the conclusions we may draw.

WHAT WAS THE LAW and DID THE LOCALS FOLLOW THE LAW?

We also mentioned the importance of knowing the laws in force at the time of an event in the ancestor's life. Lisa Gorrell's homework included the page from the state statute regarding the age of a young woman at the time of a marriage. Lisa managed to explain why there was no parental approval for the marriage of an apparently underage bride. It was from correlating information items from a variety of records that Lisa could arrive at reasonable conclusion about the woman's birth date.

GenLaw Study Group
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLR41jOFxoDYwbGXEo-OL8WZGCCx6TEXqu

HOW WE REPORT OUR FINDINGS IN GENEALOGY SOFTWARE
We suggest placing your written conclusion in note for the event in an ancestor's life.

Viewer Valerie Eichler Lair writes "In my software I put abt. before the date to show that I do not have an original document with direct evidence with primary information of the date. And then in my reports such as "Location List" I can clearly see what event needs more research. abt. tells me (and others) that I got the date from age in census, an obituary, a tombstone, a death record with a birth date, etc"

Be sure to watch this video to find out why we decided direct evidence doesn't have to be accurate.

ARCHIVED: British and Irish Military Records Study Group

DearREADERS,
We're learning about research methods in addition to the survey of record groups in this study group series. Kathleen Moore says "Oh yes, I found one of my guys and it even gives his marriage date and children's birth dates."

The National Archives at Kew in the London area is the caretaker of most of the military records. It is important to understand the "fonds" or the way records are grouped. There is a Department code (ADM for admiralty, WO for War Office, etc) and a series number. Britain's armed forces comprise, in order of seniority, the Royal Navy (including the Royal Marines - ADM) , Army (WO) and Royal Air Force (AIR). Other units can include local militia, fencibles, yeomanry and territorial units of the army.

This is the worksheet with links gathered by our study group coordinator Claire V. Brisson-Banks:
This is the research guides page on TNA The National Archives (UK) website.
Many additional links are discussed during this session. Log in with your Facebook, Google, LinkedIn or Twitter account to view them all.

ARCHIVED: Mondays with Myrt 20 June 2016


DearREADERS,
Panel participant Pat O'Donnell Kuhn has been deep diving in the National Library of Ireland Catholic church records. Thankfully, she has discovered an every-name search available to these same records at Ancestry's Ireland, Catholic Parish Registers 1655-1915. Irish researchers will appreciate the 20,000+ map collection at the National Library of Ireland.

Cousin Russ pointed us to Ancestry's Latin-English word list.

Betty Lu Burton writes "Some people are afraid to look in a foreign language, what they do not realize is a lot of time all you need to know is a few words and how to skim the records for the name and dates."

Lisa Gorrell agrees "That's true, Betty-Lu. Once the record is found by finding their names, you can always find someone to help translate the rest of it."

Randy Seaver pointed us to two items from our friends at MyHeritage.com:

    Ol' Myrt here pointed to these resources among other things:

    GOOD MANNERS PREVAIL
    Just a reminder: "We've noticed that one or two folks are using this hangout chat platform as a method for distributing info on their own agenda, totally off topic for the hangout at hand. We ask that such individuals refrain from self-promotion and consider using their own blogs and hangout accounts for such activities. Individuals who do not honor this request will be removed from the community as with our Facebook Group and Google+ Community policies. Thank-you."

    Fold3: Australia WWI Service Records

    NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was received from our friends at Fold3.com. 


    "Do you have ancestors who served with the Australian armed forces during World War I? Look for them in Fold3’s Australia WWI Service Records collection!

    This collection (via the National Archives of Australia) contains service dossiers for Australians who served during World War I in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF), Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force (AN&MEF), Royal Australian Naval Bridging Train (RANBT), Australian Flying Corps (AFC), or Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS). It also includes depot records for personnel who served at home rather than abroad during the war. Navy records are not included. The service records in this collection are not meant to cover all aspects of a person’s military service; rather they are administrative files that provide a general overview of that individual’s service."

    ARCHIVED: Genealogy Game Night - 18 June 2016

      
    DearREADERS,
    Find out what Melissa's ancestor Jessie Glasgow bought in 1888 that was quite controversial. Discover what Lisa's husband's ancestor Thomas N. Davey did many time that was unique to him. See if you can guess what Cousin Russ' ancestor Eugene Churchill's unusual occupation. It was something none of us have seen in a census record before.

    We played WHO'S IN MY LINE? spotlighting three panelists' ancestors. With help from the viewers we were able to guess! Each panel participant could ask as many questions as he wished, until receiving a "NO" answer. That's when the turn passes to the next panelist. Sometimes we begged for clues, and

    Congrats to Kathleen and Liberty for winning $20 Amazon gift cards.

    You might try playing this fun guessing game at an upcoming family reunion. It's a spunky way to look at ancestors - no boring paperwork required. 

    Sure you *could* watch the video of this Genealogy Game Night session here or on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel, but you'll want to log in at:

    ARCHIVED: WACKY Wednesday - Adobe Spark Page



    DearREADERS,
    There is a difference with what you can create using Adobe Spark Video and Adobe Spark Page. My *very* distant cousin, Pinky went in "cold" and experimented with Adobe Spark Page, inserting some still photographs and a few comments. Thanks to input from Cousin Russ and the viewers, we were able to create a unique method for sharing the old-timey family photos. Adobe Spark Page did all the zooming in and out, and movement from one image to the next as long as the viewer scrolled down the page.

    The viewer can pause, back up and go forward with the movement of his mouse.

    Sure you *could* watch the video of this WACKY Wednesday session here or on DearMYRTLE's YouTube Channel, but you'll want to log in at:
    http://hangouts.dearmyrtle.com/ww---adobe-spark-page.html
