Ready, Set, All Stop!
Just when I think I've got everything organized for a new project and I'm all set to go, reality sets in. In this instance, the weather here in mid-Tennessee. Freezing weather gave way to milder weather which in turn turned into rain then snow. Then cold. T...

The Trouble with Databases ...
Back on December 19th, I did it. I made the move BACK to RootsMagic. Let's just say it wasn't all smooth sailing. When looking over  some people in my database, I noted that a few census sources were missing. How did I know? Well, the census image was there...

Thriller Thursday - Death Certificates - You Never Know What You'll See.
I am working on transcriptions for the state of Missouri Death Certificate project. As my followers know, this is a project near and dear to me. You see many odd things on these death certificates. Some are nice, some are ridiculous (almost) and some are th...

Relative or Not?
Sometimes you need to be a detective to figure out the census. For instance, in 1920, I cannot find my John J. Ochsenfeld/Ochensfeld/Ochenfeld anywhere. He was probably born in Detroit, although I find no record. He was married the first time in Detroit, Mi...

That Census Mess!
I knew I was going to have an issue with my Kettler line. I just knew it. Sure enough, I have no idea what I was thinking when I linked some of these censuses. After I untangled August Christian Kettler with August Ludwig Kettler (the latter I think also ha...

I'm NOT Talking to You! Or: Yes, I AM Talking to You.
I grew up in a family of six children, five of whom were girls. I can only imagine what it was like for my dad. In moving through my LONG list of census to fix, I came across this household in the 59th district of Fayette County, Kentucky in 1880: Arthur De...

What About Us?
I've been working on census, birth, marriages and deaths for so long that I've neglected something really important. And it goes back to February of 2014. Well, earlier than that, but 2014 was when I was sidetracked. On February 16th of that year, I was goi...

Database Evolutions
Many years ago - back in 1987 when we got our first computer - I started seriously working on my genealogy with a program called Genealogy on Display. A friend referred to this program as GOD. It was a pre-Windows program that ran on our Tandy 1000. When we...

1965 is Waiting!
It's here! My favorite project of the winter, the 1965 Missouri Death Certificates are ready for transcription. Do you have relatives who lived or died in Missouri?  Are you housebound by the snow, cold or the sniffles? This is the chance you were waiting f...

Making Sense of the Census.
I started looking at census many, many years ago. And I did it by scrolling through rolls of census microfilm. Mostly, I either copied the film page or transcribed it. And it is by actually scrolling through these pages on microfilm where you see a lot of t...

It's Happening Again!
As I straighten out the mess I call the census - somehow people came unlinked in these shared facts and I have no idea how - I am finding stuff. Stuff that doesn't pertain to census at all. For instance, Jane Percival, whom I think is the daughter of Timoth...

DING! DING! DING!
I've been doing a little census housekeeping recently. Basically making sure all my censuses are sourced. It's a little confusing because I printed out a census list that had missing sources. Some of the ones they say are missing aren't. One of the people l...
