Tuesday's Tip - The Source Clipboard Part II (Intermediate)

TT - The Source Clipboard Part II

Tuesday's Tips provide brief how-to's to help you learn to use the Legacy Family Tree software with new tricks and techniques.

The Source Clipboard Part II (Intermediate)

In The Source Clipboard Part I, I showed you the clipboard's basic functions. There are two additional things you can do with the Source Clipboard and some Legacy users get confused between the two so I am going to explain both.

You can have up to 5 different sources on the clipboard at the same time. Whenever you click the Paste icon ALL of the sources on the clipboard will be pasted at the same time. Open the Source Clipboard, click Options at the bottom, select Allow multiple sources on the clipboard.

Setting up multiple clipboards
(click image to enlarge)

 

Click on each tab and load the Master Source and Detail just like you did in Part I. Now when you paste your citation ALL of the sources you have loaded will paste. This is very different than saving a citation for later use.

You can save up to 10 different clipboards. They can be single citations or up to 5 citations on a single clipboard. This is very handy if you have some favorites.

Start by loading a Master Source to the clipboard. You can even add the detail if the detail isn’t going to change or if the detail is easy to change. Now click Save Citations to Disk at the bottom of the screen.

Saving a source
(click image to enlarge)

 

Now you can open the Source Clipboard and select Load Citations from Disk. You will see a quick pick list of your favorite citations. You simply choose the one you want to use and then click Load.

List of saves citations
(click image to enlarge)

 

The Source Clipboard will not only save you a ton of time, it will also make sure your citations are uniform when you are citing the exact same source.

 

Find tech tips every day in the Facebook Legacy User Group. The group is free and is available to anyone with a Facebook account.

For video tech tips check out the Legacy Quick Tips page.  These short videos will make it easy for you to learn all sort of fun and interesting ways to look at your genealogy research.

Michele Simmons Lewis, CG® is part of the Legacy Family Tree team at MyHeritage. She handles the enhancement suggestions that come in from our users as well as writing for Legacy News. You can usually find her hanging out on the Legacy User Group Facebook page answering questions and posting tips.

What’s New At Your Genealogy Society?

What’s New At Your Genealogy Society?

Genealogy societies are so important for family historians. The continuing education, research assistance, field trips, library collections, and other membership benefits make them a must-have resource. One of the things I love about traveling to societies to present is I get to see what they are doing to help their members. Societies are implementing some great ideas to help members and visitors learn more about their ancestors. The following are just a few of the ideas I’ve heard about recently. Maybe these will give you ideas about something new your society should try.

Virtual Meetings

It’s no surprise that attending meetings in person is difficult for some when you take into consideration your members' jobs, family obligations, and even health or mobility issues. In addition, your society membership should include not only those who live near your meeting place but also those who live far away but whose ancestors were from your hometown.

In order to accommodate everyone, more and more societies are adding a virtual option to their websites. These recordings are either live video recordings of meetings or archived recordings of only the speaker (make sure to ask the speaker’s permission before recording or uploading their presentation to your website). Either way, it’s a great member benefit and takes into consideration everyone’s needs. Platforms like Zoom, Go To Meeting,  YouTube, or just using a mobile device to record and post a mp4 file can make this a reality for your genealogy society.

A Meeting Before the Meeting

Increasingly, genealogy society meetings are becoming much more than just a short  business meeting with an educational presentation. Many societies provide time before the main meeting to network, socialize, and even hold mini-lessons or SIGs (Special Interest Groups). In the case with societies that have two presentations back-to-back, this arrangement provides some flexibility for the society to host a 2-hour workshop given by the same speaker or 2, 1-hour talks by different presenters. In the case of one society I presented to, they meet weekly. They hold one general meeting with a paid speaker and the other weeks are dedicated to helping members, having informal discussions and lessons.

Taking Your Genealogy to The Next Level

Have you considered offering a meeting where members study a genealogical book in depth? The Pima County Genealogy Society in Tucson, Arizona  did just that by offering a special class where members could participate in group study of the book Genetic Genealogy In Practice by Blaine Bettinger and Debbie Parker Wayne. The group, led by two instructors, studied each chapter together and were assigned homework. At the end of the nine weeks they participated in a “graduation” at their regular meeting. What a great idea for learning more as a group! This in-depth study provided members with an experience in addition to the DNA SIG most societies have.

Consider holding your own group study with other genealogical texts such as Val Greenwoods, The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy or Dr. Thomas Jones’ Mastering Genealogical Documentation or Mastering Genealogical Proof. If you need some ideas for how to hold such a group, check out the study groups genealogist Dear Myrtle  has conducted online using Mastering Genealogical Proof and The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy.

If a group study is too much for your society, you could always have a Book Club SIG where members read and discuss books that are genealogically relevant. These don’t have to be serious texts they, could involve memoirs, history, or even fiction. Some ideas include:

  • White Like Her: My Family's Story of Race and Racial Passing by Gail Lukasik;
  • Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro
  • Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind by Sarah Wildman
  • The Lost Vintage by Ann Mah;

Prepare Members for Success

Does your group take a field trip to a major genealogical library or archive like the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah or maybe the Allen County, Indiana Public Library’s Genealogy Center? Many societies near me are taking time six months or more ahead of the trip to prepare members for a successful research experience. They are meeting regularly to provide insight into research at the facility and everything the person needs to know to research there. They then have members pick projects to research and prepare by using the online catalog, preparing research logs and research plans so that they are ready to go as soon as they arrive. No wasted time and members feel like they aren’t lost.

What’s your society doing? Is it time for something new? Maybe your society has a great idea they should share with others? Please feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to hear about your society!
