What Uncommon Sources Have You Used?

Dosomethingdifferent

It's probably not a surprise to anyone that I’m a huge fan of uncommon sources (my Legacy webinar on 25 Uncommon Sources for Your Genealogy was recently released) and I’m always on the lookout for them. Why? Because they can provide you the genealogical information you’re looking for and so much more. They are especially important as substitutes for records that no longer exist.

Where did my love of uncommon sources start? My background is researching women's lives and so records that document their lives have always been a favorite.  Friendship quilts and community cookbooks are particular favorites of mine. I also love other sources that provide surprising information like Farm Directories that I have found that include directory information, and in some cases,  the wife's maiden name.  

As a beginning genealogist I devoured the book Hidden Sources (2000) by Laura Szucs Pfeiffer. This guidebook of  little used sources, some that are more common in today’s world of digitized records, was one I studied chapter-by-chapter learning more about exciting sounding records such as Body Transit Records, Bird’s Eye View Maps, Midwife Records, and the US Serial Set. She taught me that that there were other records genealogists needed to use aside from the more common genealogical sources of the US Federal Census and vital records. Reading about these records and then looking for examples is what hooked me into wanting to learn more about what could possibly exist.

The idea about using unusual sources really is that we need to think more in terms of what is available for a time and place and not just what are “genealogy sources.” It’s sort of like going to a local bookstore. You could look at the “genealogy” section but you could also find relevant books in the history, sociology, and even cookbook sections.

So where do you find unusual sources?

  • It’s probably no surprise that I’m going to say that you should READ! I read a lot of magazines, online articles and non-fiction books. I always turn to the bibliography and footnotes and see what they have that might be relevant to my own research or for me to know to suggest to others.
  • Go through the FamilySearch Catalog. Choose the State or country you’re researching and go through the various subjects. What do you see that you’re not familiar with? If you narrow your search by Online (look to the right of your results list) you can go through the records you find and to become more familiar. Once you conduct that search, do a second search for the county or similar region and go through those subjects.
  • Listen to more webinars! Ok, you know I had to say this, right? But I am serious. I’m a huge believer in continuing education and Legacy’s over 1000 webinars is the perfect example of how you can learn more. Choose a topic or a favorite presenter and listen. If you’re a subscriber, download the handouts and take note of any source you’re not familiar with.
  • Decide on an uncommon source goal. Think of a source you’re not familiar with and make it a goal to learn more about it this coming year. I’ve done that in the past like the year I decided to study all of the women’s repatriation records at the National Archives at Riverside. Studying various records whether it’s at home through a website or in person is the way for you to learn more about what is available.

This year I’m taking a closer look at voting records (2020 is the anniversary of the 19th amendment here in the United States), runaway wife newspaper ads, and divorce records. My hope is to learn more about these records, why they exist and what they can tell us about our ancestors.

Now it’s your turn. I want to learn from you. What is an uncommon source that you love? What’s something you’ve used in your family history but it seems like few people know about it. What’s a source that you are going to spend time learning more about? Tell me about that source in the comments below.

Tuesdays Tip - Design Menu (Beginner)

TT - Design Menu

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

Design Menu (Beginner)

The Design Menu is at the extreme upper right corner of the screen. There are quite a few customizations here that users can overlook.

Design Menu
(click image to enlarge)

 

The little arrow looking thing at the left is a shortcut that will minimize (or expand) the main Toolbar/Ribbon. If you minimize it, this will give you more space on the main screen. 

Minimize Ribbon
(click image to enlarge)

 

If you click the word About it will take you to the Legacy Splash Screen.

The words General, Company, Translations, and Close are all hot links you can click.

If you click the word Design (or the little down arrow thingie to the right of the word Design) you will see this:

We are going to look at Styles, Font, and Animation today. Toolbars will be next week.

If you select Styles you will see this:

Styles

These are color schemes for the Toolbar/Ribbon. You can use these in conjunction with Options > Change Colors to get a more personalized look. Just play around with it until you like what you see.

You learned about the System Toolbar In Tuesday's Tip - System Toolbar.  On the Styles Menu you will see the word System here. If you click this you can add the System tab to any color scheme!  I happen to prefer the System tab so I have this selected. 

When you click Font this is what you will see: 

Font
(click image to enlarge)

 

These Font sizes, Normal, Large, Extra Large, only apply to the Toolbar/Ribbon. Be aware that the larger you make the font on the ribbon the less room you will have on the rest of the screen. It is a balance. You can control the screen fonts at Options > Customize > Fonts

The Animation option is a simple on or off. You can see that I have it clicked on.

If this is on, the items on the main Toolbar/Ribbon will light up (highlight) when you mouse over them.

How to create your XDNA chart using Legacy Family Tree software

It's being called "the best DNA webinar yet", and "maybe the best webinar ever." One viewer said, "I have taken week-long DNA courses and listened to countless DNA lectures. No lecturer has ever demystified X-DNA." The webinar, and the topic that everyone is talking about, is this week's live webinar by Debra Renard:

Which Spot Does X Mark, Anyway? X-DNA Testing in Action

Because X-DNA isn't a stand-alone test, it's an overlooked research tool and even confused with mtDNA and autosomal DNA. As Debra illustrated, looking at the X really can solve unknown parentage mysteries. Watch the webinar here.

What turned on the DNA light bulb for me were the inheritance charts she showed. It helped so much to see how the XDNA is passed to descendants, thus helping the researcher narrow down potential relationships of DNA matches.

Even more helpful is the fact that the Legacy Family Tree software has the XDNA relationships built in to its charts. Here's how to see your XDNA chart.

1. In Legacy, click on the Legacy Charting button in MyToolbar.

2. Choose one of the ancestor charts like the Upward or the Half Fan.

3. On the Appearance tab, click on the Color button. Change the theme to DNA X Chromosome.

Here's what my Half Fan chart looks like with this theme selected:

1

The chart makes it simple to visualize which relationships in my tree could account for an XDNA match.

Here's my wife's Half Fan chart:

2

If I found an XDNA match, the chart helps me know that the match could not be on my paternal side of the tree, and shows which part of the tree it could have come from. If my wife found an XDNA match, the possibilities are pretty different.

So...if XDNA is new(er) to you, check out both the webinar and your Legacy software.
