HistoryLines Launched Last Week - Post 4: A Canadian/American Story

I wrote HistoryLines Launched This Week - Post 1: First Look on 22 April, HistoryLines Launched This Week - Post 2: Custom Events  on 23 April, and HistoryLines Launched This Week - Post 3: An English Story on 24 April.

In the latter post, I wondered if I added a migration event from one country to another if the story line created by History Lines would change.  I used my Canadian-born great-grandmother, Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952) to determine if that would occur.  I also added some custom events to try to flesh out her life.  Lastly, I deleted some of the historical story segments to see how that is performed.

1)  Here is the top of my great-grandmother's story on HistoryLines:



If you look closely, you can see that I added 1871 Canada, 1881 Canada, 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 U.S. census events to the Story, added two migration events, plus edited some of the vital record events to add content.

Further down, here are some of the historical events in the Story from the 1880s time:


You can also see the migration story from Canada to Chicago, Illinois in about 1890 on the screen above.  The next historical story element concerns Illinois.

I added the marriage event in 1898 and edited the birth of her daughter in 1899 to add the birth date and place.


Gerogianna and Charles Auble moved to California in about 1912, and I added that custom event.  I edited the event for the death of her husband in 1916.  You can see that the next historical event is about California.


In the next screen, you can see the 1920 U.S. Census event that I added:


At the end of Georgianna's children, I added more detail to the death event.  I could have added the information in the obituary notice also.


HistoryLines provides many lifestyle and historic event story segments that may not apply to the person being profiled.  If that's the case, the user can edit or Hide the story elements.  The process to do that is:

Click on the "Edit" link on the right side of the story element title line (next to Feedback).  That opens a popup window to edit or hide the element (I chose the McCarthyism" historic story element above Georgianna's death event):



On the screen above, I could edit the content to read whatever I want in this person's story (not in everyone's story that might include this element).

If I want eliminate the story element from Georgianna's story, I could click on the blue "Hide this from the story" link below the red "Save & Close" button.  Here is Georgianna's story with two story elements hidden:



A user could create personal HistoryLines stories by hiding all of the historical story elements if they desired and adding custom events for the person and editing the vital records story elements.  

I could have added photographs or document images to the custom events if I chose, but I didn't do that on the screens above.

I have several emails from the HistoryLines folks answering my questions and telling me about new features.  I will post them in one of the next post in this series.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell which collections are brand new and which ones are updated.  The asterisk they use is for "Recently added or updated."  I am particularly interested in new collections, for the obvious reasons.

In order to select a specific collection, go to 
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner.

Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

Amanuensis Monday - Post 265: Will of Christopher Bartlett (1655-1711) of Haverhill, Mass.

Genea-blogger John Newmark (who writes the excellent  TransylvanianDutch blog) started a Monday blog theme years ago called "Amanuensis Monday."  John offers this definition for "amanuensis:" 

"A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another."

The subject today is the 1708 will of Christopher Bartlett (1655-1711) of Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony:

[image 4 of 13 in packet 1849]


[image 5 of 13 in packet 1849]



The transcription of the will is:

Last will and testament

The source citation for this will is:

Essex County, Massachusetts, Essex County, MA: Probate File Papers, 1638-1881, Probate Packet 1849,  images 4 and 5 of 13, will of Christopher Bartlett, written 1708, proved 1713; digital images, New England Historic Genealogical Society, American Ancestors   (http://www.americanancestors.org: accessed 2 September 2014); original estate papers in Essex County Probate Court.

Christopher Bartlett and his wife Deborah (Weed) Bartlett (1659-1726) had at least 14 children, but five died before reaching adulthood and before Christopher wrote his will in 1708.  Sons Christopher and Samuel are mentioned in the will, as are older daughters Deborah, Mary, Ann, and younger daughters Martha, Lydia, Abigail and Mehitable.  Unfortunately, no married names for any of the daughters are provided.

I am descended through the daughter Anne Bartlett (1684-1721) who married Joseph Colby (1680-1754) in 1704, and had eight children in Amesbury, Massachusetts.  Their son, Joseph Colby (1707-1768) married Abigail Worthen (1714-????) in 1736 and resided in Amesbury and Chester, New Hampshire.

Best of the Genea-Blogs - 19 to 25 April 2015

Hundreds of genealogy and family history bloggers write thousands of posts every week about their research, their families, and their interests. I appreciate each one of them and their efforts.


My criteria for "Best of ..." are pretty simple - I pick posts that advance knowledge about genealogy and family history, address current genealogy issues, provide personal family history, are funny or are poignant. I don't list posts destined for daily blog prompts or meme submissions (but I do include summaries of them), or my own posts.

Here are my picks for great reads from the genealogy blogs for this past week:


*  Pinocchio: Records Don't Lie (Or Do They?) by Granny on the Granny's Trail blog.  Very funny...and some lessons too.

*  Brighton's New Family Revealed by Michael Lacopo on the Hoosier Daddy blog.  The next installment on Micheal's search for his grandfather.

*  My Bio Family:  My Ethnicity Estimates on AncestryDNA vs. FamilyTreeDNA by Colleen Greene on the Colleen & Jeff's Roots blog.  Colleen shares her adoption letter, and compares her autosomal DNA ethnicity estimates on AncestryDNA and FTDNA.

*  Bit by Bit and In Case of Outlaws by Jacqi Stevens on A Family Tapestry blog.  Jacqi made some progress on her Lasko study by using historical newspapers.  Bit by bit works!

*  WDYTYA? Live 2015 at Birmingham by Sue Adams on the Worldwide Genealogy ~ A Genealogical Collaboration blog.  Sue and her aunt Dorothy enjoyed WDYTYA? Live at Birmingham.

*  Find Your Cousins With Puzzilla and Puzzilla Premium - Pat One by James Tanner on the Rejoice and be Exceedling Glad blog.  James describes the premium features of Puzzilla, which I find very useful to find descendants of my ancestors.

*  RIP:  Constance "Connie" (Ufkes) Neill, 1942-2015 by Michael John Neill on the Rootdig.com blog.  Michael's mother was a "lucky duck" - and so was her family.

*  Your 7 Basic Rules For Identifying Sources.  Just 7 by Elizabeth Shown Mills on the Evidence Explained Quicktips blog.  We should all try to follow these rules.

*  Being an Actor and Filing a Record by Dave McDonald on the Thinking Genealogically blog.  Dave is also a pastor, officiates at weddings and files marriage records.

*  To NERGC and Back Again: Thank You Volunteers! by June Butka on Dame Gussie's Genealogy Rants blog.  June went to NERGC and had a great time.

*  Family History Detective: 3 Pro Tactics for Finding and Using Obituaries by Alison J. Herzog on the FamilySearch Blog.  D. Joshua Taylor, Diane Haddad and Thomas MacEntee have advice about obituaries.

*  Deleting the Family Tree:  When Ancestry.com Shuttered its Social Network for Relatives, It Erased 10 Years worth of My Family's correspondence and Memories by Jon Christian on the Future Tense tab on Slate.com.  Jon's story is that of many MyFamily users.  Sad.  A black eye for Ancestry.com.

*  Family History Library: Crushed by a Waterfall of Knowledge by Heather Collins on the Young & Savvy Genealogists blog.  Heather describes her day at the FHL.  There are lessons learned here.

*  Navigate Local Town Hall Research by Marian Pierre-Louis on the Legacy News blog.  Marian has excellent suggestions for researching at a local repository.

*  Dear Ben... by Judy G. Russell on The Legal Genealogist blog.  Judy's letter to Ben Affleck describes how we should deal with slaveowning ancestors.

*  BCG Webinars Now Available Online by Angela McGhee on the Adventures in Genealogy Education blog.  Angela lists the six free webinars available from the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG).

*  Who Do You Think You Are? Live 2015 in Birmingham by Debbie Kennett on the Cruwys News blog.  Debbie recaps her WDYTYA? Live conference experiences, and provides a blog compendium too.

*  Moose Dung and Ancestral Graves by Lee Drew on the Lineagekeeper's Genealogy Blog.  This is a fascinating story...

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - A Favorite Family Photograph

It's Saturday Night, 
time for more Genealogy Fun!!


For this week's mission (should you decide to accept it), I challenge you to:


1)  Show us one of your favorite photographs of your family - a group, yourself, your mom, your dad, your sibling(s), your grandparents, etc.  Tell us about it - the date, the event, the setting, the persons in the photograph.


2)  Share it on your own blog, in a comment on this blog, or on Facebook or Google+.

Here's mine:



I picked this photograph because it is one of the only four-generation photos I have of my "San Diego" Carringer/Smith/Auble family.

Date:  Late 1919 or early 1920 (because my mother was born in July 1919)

Event:  Perhaps Christmas 1919, New Year's Day 1920, or a special day.

Setting:  In front of my great-grandparents home at 2105 30th Street in San Diego, California (on the northeast corner of 30th Street and Hawthorn Street).  I grew up in this house after it was moved to the middle of the block in the 1920s.

Persons (left to right):

*  Georgianna (Kemp) Auble (1868-1952) - seated on the left, my great-grandmother, mother of Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer.
*  Mary Ann "Matie" (Smith) (Chenery) Cramer (1866-1922) - standing on the left, daughter of Abigail "Abbie" (Vaux) Smith, sister of Della (Smith) Carringer.
*  Abbie Ardell "Della" (Smith) Carringer (1862-1944) - seated holding the cat, my great-grandmother, wife of Henry Austin Carringer, mother of Lyle Lawrence Carringer
*  Harvey Edgar Carringer (1852-1946) - standing with a hat, brother of Henry Austin Carringer
*  Emily Kemp (Auble) Carringer (1899-1977) - standing, daughter of Georgianna Auble, wife of Lyle Lawrence Carringer and mother of Betty Virginia Carringer
*  Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946) - seated, holding Betty Virginia Carringer, husband of Della (Smith) Carringer and father of Lyle Lawrence Carringer
*  Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002) - seated on Austin Carringer's lap, daughter of Lyle and Emily (Auble) Carringer
*  Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976) - standing on right with a bow tie, son of Austin and Della (Smith) Carringer, husband of Emily (Auble) Carringer, and father of Betty Virginia Carringer.
*  Abigail A. (Vaux) Smith (1844-1931) - seated on right, mother of Della (Smith) Carringer.

I forgot the cat - he was Buster (????-????).
