  • Getting It Right: The Definitive Guide to Recording Your Family History Accurately   US$ 19.95

    Are you one of the millions of people who research, record, organize, or share family history information? If so, this book is for you!

    Eliminate time-consuming duplications in family history research with this clear guidebook to recording information in a standardized way. In Getting It Right, you'll learn the rules and language you need so your research will fit smoothly and efficiently into the jigsaw puzzle of family histories being assembled around the world.

Now that so much family history work is being computerized, large amounts of data are available and accessible to researchers. However, as author Mary Slawson points out, "While software can greatly improve the efficiency of managing data and working with other family historians, most of those efficiencies depend entirely on information being recorded and used in a consistent manner." This comprehensive book offers a systematic approach to recording information in a way that will benefit families now and for generations to come.

Mary H. Slawson is a research specialist for Ireland and the Netherlands. She also chairs the Human Family Project, a fully referenced compilation of family histories of Dutch and Irish immigrants to America between 1600 and 1850. She lives in Redmond, Washington, with her husband and two children.

Soft cover, 230 pages. Large font for easy reading.

TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS

  • NEW! Child-Parent Relationships in Legacy

    The link between a child and his/her father and mother can now be specified and sourced in Legacy Family Tree 5.0. The existing Child Status field, which used to cover both the child status and the relationship between child and parents, now only refers to the status, such as Twin, Triplet, Stillborn, etc. The new Parent Relationship fields are used to record how the child is associated with each parent, such as Biological, Adopted, Guardian, Sealed, Step, as well as a place to record Challenged and Disproved relationships. These new fields are displayed on the Children List window as well as the Parents List window.

    Child-Parent Relationship status is a new feature of Legacy Family Tree 5.0 Deluxe Edition only and are not available in the Standard Edition. To purchase the Deluxe Edition, please point your browser at: www.legacyfamilytree.com/Redirect/Store-Legacy.asp

  • When Is a Marriage Date Not a Marriage Date?

    Researchers should be aware: When searching out marriage records, you will often find different kinds of documents with slightly varying dates. For example, on March 6, 1828, John Jones obtained a marriage bond in Quebec City, Quebec, in order to marry Lydia Osborne. The bond was signed by Francis Osborne (the bride's father) and John Jones. The actual marriage, however, took place the following day, March 7, at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.

    In addition, there may be certain rare instances where banns were published, or a marriage bond or license was obtained, but the actual marriage never took place. Maybe someone protested or there was a legal problem or the groom got cold feet! The following are some facts related to marriages that will help beginning researchers better understand the various kinds of documents that might (or might not) be found:

    • Banns: Banns was the public announcement of an intent to marry, usually read out loud in church on the three consecutive Sundays prior to the marriage. This provided advance notice to those who might have reason to object. When the bride and groom live in different parishes, you can sometimes find banns published in both locations.

    • Civil Marriage: A marriage performed by a government official rather than by a clergyman.

    • Common Law Marriage: A marriage relationship created by agreement and cohabitation rather than by ceremony. No record will be found.

    • Consent Affidavit: Consent given by a parent or guardian (usually the father) in cases where the bride or groom was under the minimum legal age for marriage.

    • Marriage Allegation: When a man and a woman wished to marry without having the banns read out in church, they usually applied to the bishop or archdeacon for a special license called a marriage allegation. This may have been to avoid the three week delay or simply to avoid the publicity of banns. The couple might also have been away which would have made it difficult to arrange banns in their home parish.

    • Marriage Bond: A legal document obtained by an engaged couple prior to their marriage. It provided a guarantee that there was no moral or legal impediment to the marriage. Sometimes the man affirmed in the bond that he would be able to support himself and his new bride. The bond date is usually not the actual marriage date.

    • Marriage License: A legal permit authorizing a man and a woman to marry. It is issued upon application at a local court house or city hall. The couple to be married present the license to the person performing the marriage ceremony who, in turn, completes the information and returns it to the office that issued it. This information is then transferred to the couple's marriage certificate. The license application date, often recorded in indexes, is typically not the date of the actual marriage.

    • Marriage of Convenience: A marriage for expediency rather than love.

    • Church or Parish Record: A register kept by a church of marriages conducted within the congregation. Besides the names of the individuals being married, it may also contain their ages, occupation and residence, the clergyman's name, and possibly the names of sponsors.

    And what if you bump into the situation where you have discovered both a marriage bond and a church marriage record? Simply record the actual marriage date and place in Legacy's Marriage Information screen in the normal way. Next add the marriage bond information in the lower half of the screen as an Event. This removes all ambiguity or confusion other researches might have. This same procedure can be used for the publication of banns or license dates.

OUR FAVORITE WEB SITES

  • Maritime History of the Great Lakes for US and Canadian Researchers

The Maritime History of the Great Lakes web site is an ongoing experiment in the design of a searchable "digital library", a collection of documents intended to be of value to those researching Great Lakes history. The Web site consists of ships lists, historical documents, articles, newspaper transcriptions and research collections. A number of people have combined their efforts to bring you this collection: Dick Palmer, Dave Swayze, Peter Warwick, Ken Macpherson, Bill McNeil and Rick Neilson, not to mention the talented and creative people at a number of linked sites.

One of the latest contributions to the site is the The Great Lakes Shipwrecks database. This particular resource is the work of William R. McNeil and Jack Messmer.

This editor decided to test the site for ancestor, Isabella (Robinson) Sibbald, who was said to have died in the shipwreck off the shore of Whitby, Ontario, in 1873. Here is what the site revealed:

Oswego Daily Palladium, Thursday Nov. 6, 1873
Steamer Bavarian Burned
Fourteen Lives Supposed to be Lost


Bowmanville, Ont., Nov. 5. A steamer was seen to be on fire about four miles off Port Darlington, about 8 o'clock to-night, and continued to burn until the vessel was apparently consumed, the burning hulk drifting out in the lake. No particulars have been received, but all available boats at this port have bone to the rescue. A tug was sen going to the burning steamer from Newcastle.
Since the above was in type we have received the following special telegram from Kingston:

The steamer Bavarian of the Canadians Navigation Line, was burned last night on Lake Ontario off Oshawa, and it is thought fourteen lives were lost. Two boats containing twenty two persons er put off from the burning steamer and reached the shore in safety. Fourteen persons were left on the steamer and unless they were taken off by some vessel are lost. Among the missing are Mrs. Sibbald, of Brockville, Miss Ireland of Kingston, Captain Carmichael, the commander, Spence the steward, and the first engineer. The steamer was bound down from Hamilton to Montreal.

  • FreeBMD and Family Research Link for Births, Marriages and Deaths Indexes of England and Wales

    The civil registration of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales began July 1, 1837 and is one of the most significant resources for genealogical research. The following Web sites will be most useful to you if you are already familiar with these quarterly civil registration indexes and wish to have the opportunity to search them in your own time, without having to visit a library or a register office in person.

    FreeBMD Search, found at www.freebmd.org.uk, is an ongoing project to transcribe the indexes, and to provide free Internet access to the transcribed indexes. The index transcriptions are carried out by dedicated volunteers and contain information for the period 1837-1983. Although the whole index has not yet been transcribed, it is searchable by event (birth, death or marriage), date range, surname and first name (also surname and first name of spouse), registration district and county. Registration district descriptions are also available at FreeBMD and should be carefully studied. This Web site should be consulted first before using the "pay as you view" site Family Research Link, below.

    The Family Research Link, found at www.1837online.com, enables you to search microfilmed images of the original indexes to births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales from 1837 to 2001 from the comfort of your own home. The Family Research Link images are available to search, view (including zooming in on those awkward-to-read names), save to disk and print for a modest fee chargeable online.

    The records from 1837 to 1983 can be searched in ten year periods by event, date range and surname (first three letters only). In addition, the records from 1837 to 1983 can be browsed by year and quarter. Moreover, the index images at Family Research Link are complete. Once an entry is located certificate of birth, death or marriage can be ordered online, provided you are a resident of the UK.

    Family Research Link is based in London, England and is part of an independently-owned business that is dedicated to providing high quality genealogical services to professional and non-professional researchers.

    Here are some things to keep in mind when searching the indexes at either FreeBMD or Family Research Link:

    • Become familiar with the registration district descriptions. For example, the Ledbury registration district is mainly in Herefordshire, but included parts of Worcestershire. Sub-districts include Ledbury and Yarkhill. Civil parishes within the Ledbury district include: Ashperton, Aylton, Bosbury, Canon Frome, Castle Frome, Coddington, Colwall, Donnington, Eastnor, Egleton, Ledbury, Little Marcle, Mathon (from 1897), Much Marcle, Munsley, Parkhold, Pixley, Putley, Stretton Grandison, Tarrington, Wellington Heath, Woolhope and Yarkhill. Knowing this information can help in locating an individual in the index and also in eliminating multiple entries of people who share the same name, but who were born, died or were married within different districts. For example, a page from the Oct-Dec 4th quarter index for 1846 marriages shows a dozen entries for the name James Davis, but only one of them is in the Ledbury registration district.

    • An event might not be indexed in the quarter that it actually happened. For example, a child born on December 20, 1875, might be found in either the Oct-Dec 4th quarter birth index for 1875 or the Jan-Mar 1st quarter birth index for 1876. Don't stop searching just because he or she is not located in the expected 4th quarter index.

    • There will be two index entries for marriages: one for the groom and one for the bride. It is a good idea to cross-reference the marriage index entries under both the groom and the bride to make sure the registration district, volume and page number agree before you order a certificate. For example the 1846 marriage of James Davis and Mary Powell shows that the index entries for each agree with Ledbury, Vol. XXVI, Page 298.
