I am going to have to view this as I have been using a Google sheet to index and collate my information.

+Sandy Barnett I am already on WikiTree and it is a great place to add possibly unrelated individuals. I already have a skeleton tree for the family and I am trying to find sources to backup or add to what I already have.

My post for April
Like many in the genealogy and family history community I have been researching for a number of years.  I started out when Internet access was by expensive dial up and all that I used it for was email. This was when, those w...

Love your examples. There is no excise for anyone reading this not to have their correspondence correctly cited. This explains exactly what Elizabeth is trying to teach us.
It's the day after Christmas, and unlike all the (other) crazy people out there, you've decided to avoid the after-Christmas sales and start entering all the new and updated family information from your stack of Christmas cards, holiday e-mails and family holiday photos you've received over the ...

In my recent video I mentioned a link to Titanic's first captain.
This is a newspaper article which appeared in the local Southampton Newspaper in 2012 showing the house where he lived.
THIS late 19th century home was the abode of the Titanic's very first captain.

+Hilary Gadsby I was born in Butts Close, just off Butts Road. That area then was all woods and a brick site with the Target pub at the top of Butts road. Later we moved to the 'new' Weston estate. Most, if not all that is gone now, but I have many fond memories of that area and those days.

Ever since I said on Mondays with Myrt that I was coming to Rootstech 2015 I have been hunting for my expired passport.
I finally found it alongside Medical Cards and share certificate in a place I should have tried earlier.
The cupboard under the stairs!!

Haha. A side benefit of going to Roots Tech is you'll have a current passport. Always a good thing to have--- especially if you want to take advantage of a great travel deal (for a genealogy expedition, of course) on the spur of the moment.

I joined WikiTree a long time back and am one of the Greeters. When I joined I uploaded a Gedcom file and since then I have edited only a small number of profiles.
I seriously need to clean up the profiles and want to know more about the UK templates.
Most of my profiles are in just a handful of the counties.
Where can I find more about the templates and how to make best use of them?

Hi - back again.   I do apologise - was in a bit of a rush this morning.   Depending on which country you enter on the template you'' ll get a tudor rose, thistle or daffodil.    Any problems let me know.   Enjoy.   Maria

+Dave Robison​ I am wondering if your Emma from who's in your line may have a connection to anyone on this website as the surname is so close. Was her surname spelt as Tuggey?
I have family on this site. 
The Tudgay (Tudgee, Tudgey) Family. A compilation by Brian Taylor greatly aided by Martin Taylor and many correspondents. This site is dedicated to the memory of my late mother, Aileen Taylor (neé TUDGAY), who traced us back to the Somerset diaspora, and her father, Frank Tudgay, who inspired me ...

Thanks Hilary!  Emma is actually a Mayflower descendant, a fact that she likely never knew!!  However, her father, Joseph Baber Tuggey was born in Somerset in 1847.  He emigrated with his mother and 2 siblings in 1851.  His father, Thomas, probably emigrated sometime prior to that but I've never found a ship's manifest with him listed.  There'a a Frederick Tuggey who also settle in Pittsfield, Massachusetts where Thomas settled.  They are likely cousins, but I've also not been able to connect them.  

Thomas Tuggey's father was William.  I have some documents on William's entry into the Royal Navy in 1811.  Wasn't there a war brewing around that time!?!?!?

If you are researching Quakers in the UK then you may want to look at Your Family Tree magazine published in the UK. The Dec 2014 issue 150 has a get started piece.
This is available in digital format for the Ipad.

When I first started with Evidentia I created what I thought were templates for the England and Wales Birth and Death certificate citations.
Ed has included them in the program but I now think that they should have been more like the citation format for US vital records certificates.
Has anyone else tried to use them?
I hope to look at them soon and when I am happy with the result I will send them to Ed. Meanwhile can I suggest that others do not use them.

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.
