BetterGEDCOM>FHISO> GEDCOM 7.0 is here!


UPDATED: 1:46pm Mountain Time.

DearREADERS,
Today within minutes of Tony Proctor's arrival to Mondays with Myrt, he received notification that GEDCOM 7.0 has been released. See: https://gedcom.io/

GEDCOM is a generic file format that can be employed to export and import genealogy data between genealogy programs and websites. Now we just need genealogy websites and software developers to adopt GEDCOM 7.0.

Louis Kessler and Tony discussed some of the welcome improvements included in this open source software designed to facilitate data communication between various genealogy software programs and websites.

A breakthrough in technology for genealogists who wish to share all data, images AND sources. Now the genealogy website and software developers must embrace the new standards. No more lost source citations! :)
Randy Seaver reported that Bruce Buzbee of RootsMagic.com plans to implement GEDCOM 7.0 within the month.

UPDATE from RootsMagic's Michael Booth who explains here is our official statement:
"Today, FamilySearch released the official specifications for GEDCOM 7.0, the standard file format for transferring and archiving genealogical data. With many others, we've played a part in guiding the development of GEDCOM 7.0.
Since it was just officially released today, it may take some time to add support for GEDCOM 7.0 to our different products. We have no official timetable for when it will be available or what specific features we plan to add.
You may learn more about GEDCOM 7.0 at https://gedcom.io"

Developers who participated in this GEDCOM version are as follows: (1)

CensusGenie: WHY Search By Location? 2 June 2021



DearREADERS,
WHY search by location? Curious genealogists won't want to wait until the census images are fully indexed to find info about their ancestors. It took us six months to index the 1940, and the census bureau explains the 1950 has about 20 million additional names. YIKES!

At this meeting, we learned more about peculiarities of the 1950 census and how the Steve Morse One-Step website can assist us with our locality search.

My notes include:
  • "Page 71" is reserved for those missed during the first round of enumerations. Even if an ED (enumeration district) has only 5 pages, "Page 71" follows. There are no pages 6-70 in that case.
  • "Map legends" appear on the first page of say a 4-part enumeration district map.

Watch the following to find out about the importance of adding an "A" or looking at "Other" when working through the Steve Morse One-Step

CensusGenie's 2 June 2021 Recording



Our NEXT MEETING will be 21 July 2021.

01:01:56 Melanie Hinds: Russ - Can Fr. Ivan's PP be made available after the webinars?
01:03:02 Frank Jatzek: 70% of the Vital records between 1710 and 1880 are digitized? That is awesome! I'm so envious because that's a huge treasure you have there.
01:03:27 Carol Petranek: I am envious, too!
01:09:22 Marlis Humphrey: The vital records on DVD do they just cover vitals only  in Serbia? Where do I find  Serbian church/vital records from Croatia - Lijka region.
01:12:26 Frank Jatzek: @marlis: did you checked the Croatia, Church Books 1516-1994. Records of births and baptisms, marriages; deaths and burials performed by priests in Croatia. Includes vital records of Jews. These records were acquired from the Croatian State Archive. Baptisms through 1900 can be searched. https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2040054 ?
01:16:21 Frank Jatzek: Father Ivan: as it seems like that the Gravestone at your Picture includes Pictures itself I wondered if you Keep Headstones forever like the Jewish community or if you remove them after a specific time like we do in Germany
01:20:51 Marlis Humphrey: I looked for town records a couple of years ago and found nothing and they were not indexed so I had to slug through reading the Croatian. I have always been confused as to church records in Croatia - would they even contain the Serbs living there or only be the Croatian churches - because of the history of Serbs and Croatians. This collection of Croatia Church Books for 1516-1994 I was not aware of and would not have thought to look there. Thank you! The history of wars and ethnic cleansing make genealogical research in the former Yugoslavia especially difficult.
01:28:00 Marlis Humphrey: Yes FS and from Frank on this call. I just looked in the collection and the first names of the people in the records seem to be not Serbian.
01:35:52 Cousin Russ: Interesting that food is part of a death experience
01:48:46 Marlis Humphrey: Beautiful headstone / cross. Thank you for all the photos. They evoke such feeling. 1) In my situation do I write to the Croatia archives? 2) Do I also write to local churches near villages of Divoselo and Citluk? 3) Do Serbian churches still exist there? 4) I think there is a branch of the Croatia archive in Gospic. Is that the place to start?
01:49:05 DearMYRTLE .: I will ask these questions, Marlis.
02:03:03 Marlis Humphrey: Vrlo Hvala - that would be wonderful if you would connect me to Serbian orthodox priest communities!
02:04:01 Melanie Hinds: Yes, that would be a great resource to have. I need to determine exactly where in Lika my mother's family came from.
02:04:12 Marlis Humphrey: There are only a few books I found for Divoselo/Gospic and they seem to all Catholic names. Archive connection too would be amazing!
02:04:38 Marlis Humphrey: Zbogom! You are sent by God!
02:04:50 Melanie Hinds: Yes, Hvala!!
02:05:02 Frank Jatzek: I bet you help a lot more as soon as this Video will get around
02:05:44 Melanie Hinds: Thank you Myrt, Russ & Carol, for putting this together.

Mondays with Myrt - Japanese Research, Hybrid Society Meetings, #DNA at SAR and DAR




DearREADERS,
We lead off with a non-genealogist asking about Japanese research, then spend time discussing the advisability of adopting the principles in our new series called "Hybrid Society Meetings". Now SAR has permitted DNA evidence for new applicants, following what the DAR has permitted for some time. This lead to showing the link of Blaine Bettinger's Shared Centimorgan Project diagram on his blog, The Genetic Genealogist. For additional topics and links we mention, see the typed chat log below my signature.

Once we stopped the recording, this is the page link we shared with Pat K. about setting permissions for Zoom to access all files on her brand new Mac. https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360016688031-Using-the-Zoom-Client-and-Zoom-Rooms-with-macOS

  • 10:12:33 From  Jenny Hawran: Dave brought us into the new century at CSG! :) [Connecticut Genealogical Society.]
  • 10:13:52 From  Cyndy Bray:  The one good thing that came out of the virus for me is that I get to attend the Prince Georges County Genealogical  society meetings from here in California.
  • 10:14:34 From  Melinda Culpon: That is the consensus for our board meetings four our society as well
  • 10:14:39 From  Shelley Murphy: What a great idea! Wonder if it will work with the societies I am involved with. Hmmmm…
  • 10:15:57 From  Sheri Snodgrass: With Zoom, our members all over the country are joining the Special Interest Groups they could not attend in the past as they were local.  And we are getting more non-members to our classes as well.
  • 10:17:03 From  Randy Seaver: But less than half of the CVGS members have even tried to attend a CVGS Zoom meeting.  Many just don't have the equipment or knowhow to deal with it.  OTOH, we have added 8-10 members from out of town who take advantage of the Zoom .
  • 10:17:06 From  Hazel Meldrum: The Aberdeen Family History society has been running Zoom meetings at a minimum one a month, since lock down ,we have nearly 50-100 attending each meeting. Our members are joining from Canada and Australia and of course England.  Our Australian and Canadian groups run their own meetings and are pleased when a local decides to join in. We are talking about how to arrange this when meeting go back to normal.

  • 10:18:08 From  Karen Jaszewski: With all the Zoom meetings sometimes I have to have one on my computer, and one on my phone…if both the topics are really good! :P
  • 10:18:24 From  Frank Jatzek:  And here we start in June to lift every vaccination regulations, so everyone that wants it simply can go to the Family doctor and go!
  • 10:18:46 From  Sheila Benedict: GSG [Genealogical Speakers Guild] is on Zoom; APG's chapters are on Zoom.

I don't work for Microsoft and have been effected by now twice. and this what I was instructed to due, and now issues after. If this helps anyone.

@Randall - what Microsoft updates should be uninstalled?
11:14:29 From  Maria Tegtmeier  to  All panelists:
So will the formation citation for a 1950 citation look a little different than a citation for the 1940 census?
11:14:48 From  Karen Looney  to  Everyone:
I thought you recently did a training on how to create a blog in Google Blog.  I couldn't find my notes, but found your "How to set up a blog" 101a and 101b from 2014. I got stuck though. Where should I go from here?  Suggestions?

11:19:56 From  Melanie Hinds  to  Everyone:
Q for Russ: Please explain how you indicate historical location changes for counties. E.G. A county went by one name in 1810 and now goes by another due to a new county being carved out of it. How do you note that in whatever genealogy software you use.


11:20:49 From  Danine Cozzens  to  Everyone:
Question — if you find a probate/will or other document listing enslaved people by first name, is there any place to post this? It might be a clue to family groups for someone.
