+Tony Proctor Are you thinking of something similar to what Ancestry currently do with FindAGrave where they just direct to the web page?
Many people publish their family history stories or research on a blog, or some other type of Web site. Why aren’t these searched by the large genealogical providers? Is there a problem, or simply a lack of vision? This shoul...

No, actually, Ancestry have all this now. That's why I thought it would be easier for them than some new company. I know nothing of their database schema but the meta-data provided by the user could be stored in XML form, and then incorporated into their schema when convenient. This "new collection" would have similar indexes to their other collections (derived fro the XML meta-data) and their search would just treat it like any other collection. The four-column example I've been describing for a POC is actually just three in principle: personal name(s), event(s), relationship(s). For instance, the alternative names by the person is known; the dates and places for events such as birth, death, lived-at; and relationships to other table entries such as father, mother, spouse. It just needs a little thought to create s good UI to handle the multiplicity in each column.

I have mormon pioneers in my family that were born in Hampshire. It is so interesting to know what they may have faced to get over to Utah. There is a lot of information about some of the journeys.
I want to use some of my picture to create a story as it will help me share things with the family.

I also had a look at this yesterday after the hangout but I have not decided what I want as the subject of my first video. Might go ahead and record something to share with my family.

The person being interviewed here is the wife of one of my husband's cousins. As this has a link to the videos on YouTube I thought that anyone with small children to entertain may want to have a look at them.

Whilst I was indexing recently I came across a marriage record for Kent, England in with the Lincolnshire Parish Registers. I also found what appears to be workhouse admissions in with Hampshire Parish Registers. I was told this will be picked up later. Who knows!
Ol' Myrt here is stuck in a viscous cycle and I'm not locating the marriage record I seek. Today's project involves working a nephew's Morgan family line. At Ancestry.com we find an entry for the couple in question: Joseph E. Morgan Gender: Male Age: 21 Birth Date: 1900 Marriage Date: 25 Aug ...

+True Lewis I watched Roots as a teenager. I remember feeling how could anyone treat someone else in such a way. We understand more about others as we grow older. But nobody should let us forget what our ancestors endured whatever the colour of our skin, religion, nationality, disability we all should be able to know our history.

That's the Truth +Hilary Gadsby it was ghastly and unthinkable. Any that endured. We should be on the right side of History and learn each other's History. Somehow we are all intertwined. I can only imagine what it was like growing up watching Roots from your Country's perspective. I'm glad you stopped over. Much Love Doll. True-

Thanks I added this whilst watching the video. It was really easy to do.
I just have to make sure I am logged into the correct profile.

I have been reading the Evidentia Companion guide and was having an issue with the book and program not tallying when I tried entering an English Birth Certificate. I have read the blog post that +Ed Thompson did and was wondering why when I went to Catalogue Claims it was not automatically populating the Citation Title or the one for Reports.
I am still not sure if something is incorrectly set up.
However I also found the tutorial about connecting to Family Search and have been connecting citations to the sources I have on the Family Tree. I am going to run through the ones I have connected and see if it is a problem specific to the Birth Certificate source as I added a template.

The title on the citation page should be, but only it you are doing it from the source page.

Since the template  fills in the citation, even if you do it from the source page, Evidentia needs a place holder title to save the citation record (title and listing are required).  If you are doing it from the catalog page, Evidentia assumes you are taking control.

Introduction
I have been doing family history research since the turn of the century. I am in the UK and my research has been UK focused. I am not an expert but I have a lot of experience in UK research. My particular counties of interest are Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Leicestershire, Rutland, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire.

This is the best B & B we have stayed in with the great choice of Vegetarian options we were spoilt for choice. We visited late autumn and hope to return again when the weather is warmer. The canalside location allows for a pleasant walk devoid of the hazards of traffic in a rural location.
