TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS

  • Coming to the United States Via Canada

American genealogists may become discouraged when they can't locate an immigrant's entry into the United States. Having done exhaustive searches of available U.S. passenger lists and naturalization records they may mistakenly assume that their ancestor was somehow missed or that they entered the country illegally.

Many immigrants who sailed across the Atlantic did not come first to the United States. They originally went to Canada and possibly resided there for a time before settling in the south of the border.  This is scenario is a viable possibility, and genealogists should seek clues in family traditions that may indicate a Canadian connection.

Although the few existing Canadian passenger lists are rather late of date, the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service kept reliable records of crossings for St. Albans, Vermont, for the period 1895 to 1954. These records have been microfilmed by the National Archives and are available for genealogists to search.

Immigrant arrivals are arranged by year, then by month and then by port. A significant number of these records are not of ship passenger lists, but of land crossings. Each microfilm roll is described in NARA publication No. M1464. Consult the National Archives Web site, http://www.archives.gov/ for details.

The Soundex (a type of phonetic index) to ientries of individuals was microfilmed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Soundex is available through the Family History Library at Salt Lake City. To find the right Soundex index to order, consult the http://www.familysearch.org Web site, browse to the Family History Library Catalog, then to "Place" search and enter "St. Albans". Next choose "St. Albans, Vermont", and then select "Immigration and Emigration".

Many resources exist for Canadian research and the World Wide Web is an excellent place to start. The June 2004 issue of Family Chronicle magazine contains an article by Janice Nickerson, who describes the 25 top Web sites for Canadian genealogical research.

  • Making Sure That All Duplicate Individuals Have Been Merged

Legacy Family Family Tree has the best Merge Duplicate Individuals feature that I have ever seen, and I have owned many different genealogy programs. But I have discovered that just one Legacy Merge session won't catch all the duplicate individuals and that I need to reset my Merge options for subsequent passes through my family file.

First, click on Merge on the toolbar and select Find Duplicates from the merge menu. Next, click on the Normal Duplicate Search tab and change the options. Next, 'loosen up' the criteria by which Legacy finds duplicates. Here are the options that I start with:

Compare Surname Using: Sounds Like
Given Name for a length of: 3
Check birth dates, Day range: 360
     Include blank birth dates
Compatible Gender
Ancestral File Number
User ID#
Compatible Parents
    
Compare Surname Using: Sounds Like
     Given name for a length of: 3

Click the Continue button and follow the prompts.
Be sure to say 'Yes' to the Automerge and the Intellipass options when they are presented to you early on in the Merge session.  Legacy can automatically merge two individuals when it can determine with certainty that they are the same people (there is sufficient identifying information for both individuals and it is exactly the same).  Intellipass will let Legacy run through your entire family file and do all qualifying Automerges for you.  This will save considerable time.  Also be sure to click the button for Individuals Marked as Not Duplicates when the Merge screen presents two possible duplicate people who you definitely know are not the same.  This will keep the same pairs of people who aren't really duplicates from reappearing in future Merge session.

Once I have completed my first Merge session based on Birth Dates, I then do another session 'Check chr. dates, Day range'.  I also choose 'Include blank christening dates'. All other options remain the same.  Make sure that all the Birth Date options are deselected -- this time through you just want to check for christening dates.

When the second and Merge session is complete, I start another, but this time with just 'Check death dates, Day range' as the only dates looked for.  And then I do the same for 'Check burial dates, Day range' following the pattern. In this way I get all of the possible duplicate people.

My last step is to open and carefully examine the Marriage List for duplicate marriages.  This can be a little tricky and is not the same as duplicate individuals.  If an individual is listed with duplicate marriages (more than one MRIN but with spouses who have the same RIN), you will want to unlink the duplicate MRIN with the fewest children. Please jot down the names and RIN numbers of any children before you proceed.)

  1. In Family View move the couple into Husb and Wife position.

  2. Click the 'Wives' button (lower left corner of Husb screen). The 'Wives of...' dialog box will open.

  3. Highlight the duplicate wife entry to be removed and click the Unlink button. (You don't want to Delete at this point, as this will get rid of the individual's record.)

  4. Another dialog box will open showing the spouse plus any children.

  5. Next click the Yes button.

  6. If these steps resulted in a marriage to 'Unknown' it is because there were children linked to the marriage just removed.

  7. In the 'Wives of...' dialog box highlight the 'Unknown' spouse and click the Delete button. (It's OK to Delete an Unknown at this point.)

  8. Another dialog box will open showing the spouse and any children. If you have not already done so, write down the names and RIN numbers of any children because they will need to be re-linked as your last step.

  9. Reconnect each 'orphaned' child by linking him/her as an existing person already in the file. (Adding him/her as a new person will only create more work for you by making a duplicate record that will then have to be merged).

As you examine the Marriage List you might find a few duplicate individuals (they will have different RINs) missed for one reason or another during the Merge sessions.  If so, simply jot down the RIN numbers and do Manual Merges on these people.  There shouldn't be many.

If you have questions at any of the Merge screens, don't hesitate to click on the Help button that each of them has!

  • Double Dating: Gregorian and Julian Calendars

    In 1582 various countries began switching from the Julian calendar to a new calendar which refined the assignment of leap years to keep the spring equinox from drifting from its assigned calendar date. Pope Gregory XIII introduced what is now called the Gregorian calendar. Thursday, Oct. 4, 1582, was followed by Friday, Oct. 15, 1582 in order to gets things back on track. Leap years were to occur in years divisible by four, except century marks must be divisible by 400 to be leap years. 

    The Romans began their years in March. Roman consuls started taking office on January 1, which became the beginning of their year. These two starting dates, along with others, continued to be used until around 1752 in different countries. England and its colonies used March 25th as the beginning of the year until 1752.

    Dates during this period of time that fall between January 1st and March 25th can either be considered toward the end of a Julian year or near the beginning of a Gregorian year. To reduce confusion, some people include both years. For example:

Julian Gregorian Double
November 4, 1645 November 4, 1645 November 4, 1645
January 1, 1645 January 1, 1646 January 1, 1645/46
March 24, 1645 March 24, 1646  March 24, 1645/46
March 25, 1646 March 25, 1646 March 25, 1646

If you are using double dating, when you enter a date from January 1st through March 24th, and don't include a second year, Legacy accepts the date as the later year (Gregorian) and reformats the date to include the previous year. For example, Feb. 25, 1689 would be reformatted to Feb. 25, 1688/89.

Legacy will display dates between 1582 and 1752 in the double date format, provided this option has been turned on in Legacy.  To select this "Double Date Cutoff" option, please click on select Customize from the Options menu, then click on the Dates tab and select 'Use double dating' and set the year for cutting off double dating.

More information on this topic is available on the video training CD 'Mastering Legacy Family Tree: Names Dates and Places' available through our Online Store.

  • Virginia Colonial Soldiers

    Since the first settlers landed in Jamestown in 1607, Virginia was largely a military colony and remained such for many years. This database is a listing of men who served in the colonial militia from those early years as a mere settlement up until the early 1770s. It was compiled in 1913 from sources available to the author in the Virginia State Library. Researchers will find the name of soldier and the reference in the original work where the record was found. Containing the names of over 6000 men, it can be an extremely helpful resource for those seeking colonial Virginia ancestors. This is a FREE Ancestry.com database.

GENEALOGY HUMOR

All in a Name...

These are actual names I found in U.S. census searches at Ancestry.com.  I really get a chuckle from some of these!

  • Ima Hogg - 1930 Census - Harris Co., TX
  • Ura Hogg - 1880 Census - Dallas Co., AR
  • Lethel Spear - 1930 Census - Clay Co., TN
  • Ernest Money - 1910 Census - Whitley Co., KY
  • Donald Duck - 1930 Census - Marion Co., IN (sorry, no Mickey Mouse was found)
  • Ruby Lips - 1930 Census - Lubbock Co., TX
  • Tiny Head - 1880 Census - Meriwether Co., GA
  • Willie Tinkle - 1850 Census - Gibson Co., TN
  • Noble Crapper - 1800 Census - Worcester Co., MD

Who could have foreseen:

  • Crystal Ball - 1930 Census - Shiawassee Co., MI

Maybe this one took her daddy's car for a spin without asking:

  • Joy Rider - 1910 Census - Johnson Co., MO

And this name from the 1930 Census from Noxubee Co., MS sounds like good advice for any girl:

  • Marry Well

But she won't want to become involved with:

  • A Goon from the 1850 Census of Tuolumne Co., CA!
