For those who have watched and/or participate in the Beginning Genealogy series, we used and shared a Google+ Sheet for our research. The TAB labeled Record Links provided a list of Record Groups or Database Titles for our research. Google's Search Feature, allows us to Search for a Data Collection, within a Google Sheet, and it will return up to Two (2) websites that have that collection. I have continued to update that list and now we are up to 266 Links to those collections. The 2nd column describes Where that collection is (Free / Fee / Pay as you go).

BUT, did you know, that like EXCEL, you can filter only those collections found on a specific Website. Say for example, Family Search. So, as the  Image shows, you can SELECT the website you want to look at.

I continue to update that list AND have made it available for you to Download it. and I demonstrated that several times during our  HOA's. It's in the File Menu, and you can download your own copy of that Google Sheets.

Here is a link to that Google Sheet.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CXE1JFJ9HJaaGsbUPe7y0iPUX6_xnakSVL7S9XBIqUo/edit?usp=sharing

IF YOU have a collection that isn't on that list, and you want it added, PLEASE leave a Comment in the Google Sheet and I will pick it up and add that collection to list.

Thank you

Cindy,

Don't know what you want me to explain. You ZIP the Images that are attached to that GEDCOM file, and that would be YOU selecting them OUTSIDE of Family Tree Maker and put them into a Zip File. Not sure why I put that note into this blog post, but I may have been working on a project and was reminded of sharing the research.

The important issues here are 1) What program AND Version is the person you are sending the GEDCOM to is using. 2) Why not use Dropbox, which is what I have done successfully.

What are you trying to accomplish?

 In an earlier blog post:  FTM2014 - What goes where in a Source Template? I had this in the Citation Details field. Baltimore Ward 11; Page 79 and 80;  dwelling number 436; family number 546; Lines 39 and 40, 1 - 6; Will...

Cindy K,

Yes, one at a time.

Oh, and you might take the time to go back and look at that Source, as you redo the Citations. I'll guess that some of your Sources had 'new' information in them. New, meaning information that you didn't think was important that last time you looked.

I have been redoing, reviewing ALL of my Citations for the past 2 years..

Take your time. But, please relook at your source material.

Good luck,

Russ
I am going to try to explain what information goes where, using the Family Tree Maker Template Feature. The first item that I had to learn is that a Source and a Citation are two different things. The program, and many others...

Cindy K,

FACTS are NOT copyrighted. 

Also, You need to evaluate any fact based on the Source of those facts.

Just because it's written in stone, doesn't make it accurate, just like an official document doesn't make it any more accurate. We must evaluate what we find.

OH, and Cite them all

+DearMYTLE updated her Favorites on her Blog. I was looking for a New PC, and there it was. I will have it in two days. Check it out.
Genealogy is the study of the history of your family -- starting with you, working thru generations of ancestors and their siblings.
