Help Us Publish More Free Records Online

Searchable historical records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of online volunteers worldwide. These volunteers transcribe (or index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are always needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published weekly online on FamilySearch.org. Learn how you can volunteer to help provide free access to the world’s historical genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org/Indexing.

Lessons from a Snoop and Other Videos at JCGL

Tuesday night, July 28th, we watched a video at Jackson County Genealogy Library called “Lessons from a Snoop: Collaterals and Associates” by Debbie Mieszala.   Debbie used a brother-in-law’s records to determine a sisters parents, place of birth in Ireland and other information.   (Collateral research).  She used fellow company members pension files from the Civil War to paint a picture of an ancestor’s experience while in that company during the war.  (Associates research).  Please follow this link to read the handout that accompanied the video.  Shown below is a picture of Debbie Mieszala.

DebbieMieszala

In August, videos will be shown on two successive Tuesday nights:

Tuesday, August 18, Video: Remedies for Copy and Paste Genealogy, 7:00pm -8:30pm.  Cyndi Ingle (of Cyndis List) presenter:  Family trees and the information they contain are easily copied and re-published by others online. This means errors are duplicated many times over. We will discuss solutions for dealing with these issues.  Presented on the big screen at JCGL. (This is a Southern California Genealogical Society video.) Free.

Tuesday, August 25, Video: Cousin Bait: Make Social Media Work for You, 7:00pm -8:45pm. Anne Gillespie Mitchell, presenter. Social media is not just for cat videos and boring vacation photos. Many family historians post what they know about their ancestors in hopes of finding a long lost cousin or two. We will explore what you might find on Facebook and Twitter as well as some places you might not have thought of like email lists and message boards. Presented on the big screen at JCGL. (This is an Ancestry Academy video.) Free. DebbieMieszala
