Lessons Learned from Writing Women’s History Month Posts

Since 2013, I have written a post a day for Women’s History Month for my blog Gena’s Genealogy. Each year I select a theme and then write posts that will help researchers better understand how to successfully research their family history. This year’s theme is Her Voice, Her Vote which focuses on suffrage and voting records.

Square 2020

In writing 30 posts year after year as well as talking to groups about researching female ancestors, there are a few things that become obvious as I consider what researching female ancestors is all about.

We Don’t Do a Good Enough Job of Exhausting Sources

Sure, you know you’re supposed to do an exhaustive search but do you? Maybe the better question is what is an exhaustive search? Is my idea of an exhaustive search someone else’s “I’m just getting started?”

Elizabeth Shown Mills on the Evidence Explained website provides guidance on what a reasonably exhaustive search looks like. She writes "Thorough research, I would argue, is not just "looking everywhere." It's not "a search in all logical places" for the one document that answers a specific question. That's just a search. But a search is only one step in the research process. It's not even the first step. And no conclusion should ever be based on one document."

She goes on to talk about the need for a research plan. So that “reasonably exhaustive search” is research that includes a multi-step plan and ends with all contradictions resolved. It’s much more than finding one document and coming to a conclusion about an ancestor based on that one document.

In my humble opinion, that search or research also includes looking beyond what’s online. Too often a researcher's brick wall is simply the product of limiting research to a few websites. That’s not research. Research requires searching sources found online and off.

We Don’t Consider Sources That Document Women

Many years ago when FamilySearch had just launched I was giving a presentationing to a group. An attendee, aggravated by his lack of relevant results, exclaimed to the group how he hated the website and how worthless it was. I asked him what he was hoping to find. After he replied, I answered that I wasn’t surprised that he didn’t find the website useful. None of the databases had the records he was looking for. 

Researching female ancestors is different. Historically women aren’t documented in the same ways as men because they didn’t have the same legal rights. If we limit our research to records that don't document women, we will end up frustrated. So our research into their lives needs to include this knowledge. In addition to seeking information from the place and time period she lived, we should also include documents and resources that are meant to document women’s lives.

People roll their eyes at me (yes, I know cookbooks seem like a weird genealogy resource) when I suggest that they incorporate women-specific databases and records to their research. But there is a reason I do that. Those sources are meant to include women. Some of these women-specific resources and sources include:

Quilt Index

  • The Quilt Index 
  • Community Cookbooks
  • Church Records
  • Women’s Auxiliaries to men’s fraternal orders
  • Women’s organization records
  • Church based women’s auxiliaries
  • Newspapers (these can document all aspects of women’s lives from vital record events to organizations, and gossip columns)

Yes, there’s more than that but you get the idea. Researching female ancestors requires us to be creative and to ask what records exist for that time and place. Not sure? Search for archival records for the place your ancestor lived in ArchiveGrid, seek out some non-fiction books about women’s lives from that place, time period, or a shared aspect of your ancestor’s life and flip back to the endnotes for ideas of sources and places to research.

There’s SOOOOO Much Out There

I’m endlessly curious and I find on any given day that I’m looking up historical events, reading history books, asking questions of archivist, or just gaining ideas from my friends' Facebook postings. I do this because it helps me see how many resources and records are out there that are unique and helpful to genealogists. My Women’s History Month blog series has allowed me to share some of those resources. This year one of my favorite record sets I've shared was the Massachusetts voting records. Massachusetts school suffrage dates to 1879 and provided some women with the ability to vote in school elections. You can take a look at the Boston records on FamilySearch.

Start asking questions about records and what might document your ancestor in her time, place, and situation. Start finding relevant resources by going to the FamilySearch Catalog and conducting a Place search. You could also do a Keyword search for Women and see what might help your research.

Part of becoming a better researcher is learning what is out there and exploring new-to-you collections.

What Will You Find?

It’s Women’s History Month, have you taken a look at the research you’ve done for your female ancestors? I know I have a lot of work to do but learning more about records and sources as well as making sure I've done an exhaustive search will help me tell their stories for generations to come.

Tuesday's Tip - How to Share an Event (Intermediate)

TT - How to Share an Event

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

How to Share an Event (Intermediate)

Last week I showed you How to Copy an Event. This week we will share an event. I am going to use a baptismal event as an example. It just so happens that I have one from a Bible that I am entering from scratch in one of my One Name Studies files. I will only be showing you how to share the event. All of the information and sources have already been entered for this document entry.

Ball Family Bible
(click image to enlarge)

 

Here is Ann Ball. If you click the plus (+) next to her baptism you will see the option to share the event. The plus sign is already colored in because I have entered some baptism notes. You can see that the Baptism Notes is check marked. Click the Baptism Event Shared option.

Share Event
(click image to enlarge)

 

The Shared Events window is empty because I haven't added anyone yet. I need to click the Add one or more people.

Shared Event Window
(click image to enlarge)

 

There are two choices, Select from the Name List and Just enter the name of a person.

If the person is NOT in your database, and you don't want to add them, you will select Just enter the name of a person. The name will show up in reports but nowhere else. 

Two Choices
(click image to enlarge)

 

I know who the people are that I want to share this event to and they are in my database so I will click the first option, Select from the Name List. This will open the Name List with everyone in your file.

I found the four people that I want to share this event with and I have put a check mark by their names. Notice that as you highlight someone to select them, their immediate family appears on the right in case you need to select anyone else in that family. This is a little bit of a short cut so that you don't have to search for them on the Name List. The most important thing to remember is that you have to click the Select button at the top and NOT the Close button (unless you change your mind and want to exit).

Name List
(click image to enlarge)

 

Here are my four people. They are not witnesses though. I am going to have to change their roll by clicking the down arrow next to the roll. John Ball, Sr. was one of the Sponsors so I have change his role to that. I already had Sponsor in the list because I work with baptisms a lot. You can see other roles as well. I can't do the screenshots at full screen so what you don't see is that you can scroll down the list and then you will find the option to Add/Edit Roles. You can add new roles and edit existing roles.

Change Role
(click image to enlarge)

 

I have now selected everyone's correct roll. 

Finished with Roles
(click image to enlarge)

 

After I closed all of the screens I can click the plus (+) sign so you can see that there is now a check mark indicating that I have shared this event.

Check marks
(click image to enlarge)

 

Any person that has had an event shared with them will have a red o next to their event icon. This is John Ball, Sr. one of the sponsors.

Shared event icon
(click image to enlarge)

 

And here is what it looks like on his event list.

Event List
(click image to enlarge)

 

If I open his event I can see his role which I can change here if I need to. I also have a place to write notes specific to John's role and I have the option of using a sentence override like you can with any event. You also see the normal event options at the bottom for excluding the event from the Potential Problems checking and you can make the event Private. 

Edit the event
(click image to enlarge)

 

How the event will look for the person whom the event was shared from and for the person whom the event was shared to in reports depends on which Report Options you have selected. This is something you will need to play with to get the best output. 

Also, there is a lot more that you can do with the roles. You can edit the role sentences just like you can with event sentences. You can read Custom Event Sentences for more information about that. 

Sharing events is a very important tool for your research as you will see next week.

A Genealogical To-Do List While You Keep Your Distance

A Genealogical To-Do List While You Keep Your Distance

Trying to keep your distance from everyone else while we wait out COVID-19? Stuck at home as you self-quarantine? Now is a great time to focus on genealogy. Here are 20 ideas for you to consider as you fill your days with indoor activities.

1. Establish Your Personal Learning Plan. I know you love Legacy webinars so why not think about a personal learning plan for the next 2 weeks or month. Choose webinars based on a theme such as :

  • The country/countries you are researching
  • DNA
  • Researching female ancestors
  • Technology
  • Every webinar in the Webinar Library by a specific category or presenter

Identify your webinars of preference, watch them, and then study the handouts. Really study the handouts by exploring the suggested websites, seeking out the books in the bibliographies, and jot down notes for future reference.

2. Scan! It’s a good time to pull out some of those photos you have been meaning to scan and start. You could even watch webinars while you do it!

3. Upload photos to the Cloud. Use this time to share and store your photos (especially those that you just scanned). Upload them to whatever makes the most sense to you, an online tree attached to specific ancestors, Facebook album tagged with descendants, FamilySearch Memories collection, or a cloud storage website like Dropbox or Sugar Sync.

4. Download your photos from your phone. Are you guilty of this? I go to a library or archive and take a bunch of photos and then think I’ll download them later. But really later never comes. So now’s a good time to download them to your computer or a cloud storage website. You could even attach them to your online trees. Some cloud storage website feature a way to automatically download them to your cloud storage (such as Dropbox).

5. Take a 2nd look at the census. I know, I know, you’ve already looked at the census. But what about exploring the pages before and after your ancestor’s listing. Or really looking at the columns and making sure you’ve recorded/analyzed everything. Or if you are using the U.S. Census, learning more about the enumerator instructions.

6. Search WorldCat. Have you used WorldCat, the world’s library catalog? Take some time to enter a keyword that is meaningful for your family history such as Quakers or Coal Mining. Take some time to search by your ancestor’s place to find local history books. To learn more about using WorldCat, see the Legacy TechZone.

7. Search ArchiveGrid to become familiar with manuscript collections in the place your ancestor lived.

8. Search the FamilySearch Catalog for the place your ancestor lived. Go through each listing to see what resources you haven’t used and then make a list of what you need to check.

9. Update your family tree. Take some time to update your family tree whether it’s on your computer or online. Have you made any new discoveries? Have new documents to add?

10. Take a new look at your DNA results. New matches? New ethnicity estimates? Take some time to watch a webinar and learn something new you can do as you review those results.

11. Timelines. Create a timeline for an ancestor you are researching now or an ancestor you want to research.

12. Revisit your grandparents. Have you researched your grandparents? What records are you missing? What social history can you add to their lives? Work on writing some short narratives/stories about their lives.

13. Create a timeline for your life. For many of us, someday we will be an ancestor. Do your future family genealogist a favor and create a timeline for your own life. Add vital record events, milestones, and historical events that had meaning for you.

14. Start a journal. We are living in a unique historical period, document it now by starting a journal. Then look at how you can add to your journal with newspapers, photos, and emails from family.

15. Digitize! Have old photocopies from library visits when you first started your family history? Digitize those, organize them on your computer and then throw them away. You should never throw away original or hard to replace records but digitized copies from records like the census, which is found only could be saved to your computer.

16. Take your genealogy to Facebook. Have you identified Facebook genealogy groups to join? Now is the time to do that. Start with lists curated by Katherine R Willson, Gail Devers, and Alona Tester.

17. Identify blog articles to read. Bloggers do such a great job of reporting on methodology, new record sets, and case studies. You can learn more about blog posts to read by using Randy Seaver’s “Best of...” weekly list or other similar lists. Randy has links to other blogger lists at the end of each weekly "Best of" blog post.

18. Work on a Research Plan. Now’s a good time to consult library and archival catalogs and your family tree and come up with a research plan. One of my favorite explanations on creating a genealogical research plan is the online article, “Creating a Genealogy Research Plan Like a Detective” by Kimberly Powell.

19. Document an heirloom. Have a family heirloom or something you hope will become an heirloom? How about taking some time to photograph it and explain its provenance? Explain what it is, what its importance is to your family, its history and where it should end up when you are no longer around. Consider long term solutions including family members willing to inherit it or a possible donation plan.

20. Take a virtual trip to your ancestral home. Sure, you might not be able to travel right now but we are so lucky to be able to access places virtually. How about using Google Maps or Google Earth, HistoryPin or even What Was There ? To access historical maps and images.

Stuck at home? That’s ok, there’s plenty to do! Look at your family history and decide what you’d like to accomplish.
