After listening to the various ways a study is run I have decided that before my database gets too big and crashes in spectacular FamilyTreeMaker style-ee I'm going to migrate from Roots Magic to Family History.

So far I've sorted out 25 entries. I only have another 1,975 or so to go.

On the plus side I can validate what is in there already to make it all nicely uniform and get my sources straight (and thus calming my OCD tendencies).

This is Kit. 

He decided that he wanted to know all about Scotland's original parish records and clandestine marriages.

After careful pawing he decided that the quickest way to learn was by eating the paper, because that's where the knowledge is. Right?

Today I'm going to attempt to get my head around Soundex.

I understand how it is useful but I've had trouble getting my head around how it works and why we shouldn't rely on automatically generated Soundex codes / search engine results.



This new-found wanting to understand was brought to me by The University of Strathclyde

Following my request for feedback yesterday on the new site I have compiled the attached document. This details what people thought I needed to change and what I'm going to do about it.

We got our first big assignment marks back today and I'm happy to say I passed :)

I'm very happy with the mark I got, I'm just waiting to get my transcript back so I can see what I missed / misread.

It's hard work but it is worth it.

After two days of playing around the tree should now be clearer and the contrast between the text and the background easier on the eye.

I can't change the site to adapt to whichever screen it is being displayed on as this is something that isn't yet supported with Moonfruit (responsive website design is what is required).

Next on the agenda - get the Chapman codes up for reference.

Looks good on my iPad Carol. Just one glitch on the name page, the last reference and the copywrite info are overlaid on each other. I love the layout.

I have just started to build a dedicated website for my study,  but before I get too far into it I'd appreciate some feedback if you don't mind.

The address is www.steersons.moonfruit.com 

Thanks in advance

G+ for the Steers One Name Study
Introduction
I have been researching family origins for approximately eight years now. Having hit brick walls with my own family tree I decided to look into my other half's family history. 

I found myself at another brick wall, but instead of going around it I decided to collect every instance of Steers in the area they were last seen.

In 2012 my other half proposed and I have become a Steers. I also decided that if I was going to research this, I should make it accessible to all and so 'The Study' was born.

The Study is registered with The Guild of One-Name Studies and I am also a member of the Society of Genealogists. In October 2013 I will also be undertaking a Post Graduate Certificate Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies.
