1) On CrowdSourcing Opportunity: When and Where did John Louis Powell Die? (posted 29 October 2013):
a) Sharon helped: "Some Oklahoma probate records are available on FamilySearch. They are browse only. I looked at the probate indexes for Payne County and found no likely guy. I checked Logan County and found a 'Burel' Powel, whose estate was probated between 1934 and 1936. Unfortunately, the records themselves are not online, only the index.
"The link for the index page is
"This may (or may not!) be the Louis Burr Powell you are looking for. The date does appear to mesh with the find-a-grave entry you found."
"Also, Tulsa Genealogical Society at http://www.tulsagenealogy.org/ which has research services available."
"The note from anonymous regarding OHS's newspapers is apropos. They do have some Perry papers for 1890s, 1910s and 1920s, but possibly not from the 1930s. A query regarding papers from there and elsewhere in the County might gather a more precise list."
"Do you have reasons for having both Baptism and Christening?"
* Other Researchers - keep a list in the notes section and add a source for e-mails received or notes others posted on ListServes. This 'fact' helps me reconnect and collaborate with others.
"Would LOVE to learn how to print out a report showing what facts are used as some came over here when I imported my FTM file but to clean that up, I need to be able to create a report showing which fact is used for which person."

"I was trying to print out the list, and ended up typing it into Word and counting them there. When I tried to print in the list dialog box, I found a way to find out who was attached to the various facts. Some of the facts I would like to consolidate or change and now I have a way to see who has that fact.
"By the way, if you try to delete a fact, you can't if it's a RootsMagic defined fact."
"Randy, I add some information about the source before I type in the transcription so I can easily tell with a glance what the source is. I use the comments section a lot to analyse the source information, similar to what I have learned from Evidentia. It's a place to record what I have learned from the record and any discrepancies there may be (misspelled names, wrong birth/death date, etc.)"
"Daniel Dillman, thank you for your feedback. What you describe is indeed a bug, that we have confirmed and will fix very shortly. The 'Extract Info' functionality compares information from the census record to the family tree profile, and currently doesn't let you add residence information from two different census years into the profile. The temporary workaround in this scenario is not to use the Extract page but to edit the profile and manually add the new information. This will be fixed quickly.
"With regards to the newspaper matching, its accuracy is indeed lower than 97% (the avg. accuracy of MyHeritage matching of structured records), as Randy noted and as you experienced. However, it is still the only matching technology for newspapers available on the market; and any correct match it will find for you may be one you would not have found yourself. So despite the errors I encourage you to review your newspaper matches and glean all the value that you can."
