*  Mexico, Chihuahua, Civil Registration, 1861-1997; 111,726 indexed records with images, added or updated 15 Dec 2014

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 major updates also.

Amanuensis Monday - Post 248: Inventory of Simon Gates (1739-1803) Estate

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 1803 Inventory for the estate of Simon Gates (1739-1803) of Gardner, Worcester County, Massachusetts in Worcester County Probate File 23252:

The source citation for this inventory is:

Massachusetts, Worcester County, Probate Files, 1731-1925, Case 23252, Simon Gates Estate, 1803, Inventory; digital images, FamilySearch.org,(https://familysearch.org: accessed 12 August 2014); in "Case no 23243-23330, Gates, Sarah-Gay, William, 1731-1881" (images 96-98 of 1069); original records in Worcester County, Mass. Courthouse.

This is the second of several transcriptions from the Estate packet for Simon Gates (1739-1803), my 5th great-grandfather.  He died 11 March 1803 in Gardner, Worcester County, Massachusetts.  

The inventory of the estate of Simon Gates totaled $5,636.17, of which $3,760 was real estate (including the church pews and the stable).  The notes from debts owed to Simon Gates was $943.99.  The balance was personal property - clothing, furniture, utensils, tools, livestock, foodstuffs, etc.  

I tried to retain the original spelling.  The handwriting was difficult in places - if readers can suggest words or better spellings I would appreciate it.   I put this in a word processor table to transcribe it, and the table included the $ sign in the right-hand column.   There are money amounts in the list of property "d" stands for "dollar" and "c" for "cents."  In the original, these were superscripts, as was "wt" for "weight".  The "Do" stands for "ditto" meaning the same as the item before.  There may be two lines of text for some of the items.

These records were digitized by FamilySearch from the original probate estate packet in the Worcester County Probate Court in Worcester, Massachusetts.  The papers are also transcribed in the Worcester County Probate Records, 1732-1881, found on Family History Library US/CAN Microfilm.

Best of the Genea-Blogs - 14 to 20 December 2014

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:


*  Announcing the Genealogy Do-Over by Thomas MacEntee on the Geneabloggers blog.  Thomas is going to press the reset button and start over - ambitious, but the result should be excellent.

*  How I Found My Orphaned Milkmaid (Susan Tucker Kelley - 52 Ancestors #40) by Amy Johnson Crow on the No Story Too Small blog.  Amy finds her milkmaid ancestors parents using classical means - this is a great case study.

*  Until We Meet Again, Kathleen by Denise Levenick on The Family Curator blog.  A beautiful tribute for a sister-in-law.

*  What does Ferguson Teach the Genealogy Community?Ferguson: Geoff's ResponseFerguson: George's Reply; Ferguson: Unintentional Bias - Call to Action for Program Chairs; and Ferguson: Thoughts on Unintentional Bias  by Pat Richley-Erickson on DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Blog.  Pat starts an interesting and necessary conversation.

*  Monday Mailbox: What is Going On Here? by the writer of The Ancestry Insider blog.  Mr. AI answers a reader's question about Ancestry.com's "Historical Person Search" feature.

*  Announcing 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: 2015 Edition by Amy Johnson Crow on the No Story Too Small blog.  Amy will suggest weekly themes for bloggers if they want to write about their ancestors.

*  Solving a "Mystery of Baseball" by Zachary Garceau on the Vita Brevis blog.  This post reviews some interesting research about the first African-American baseball players in the 19th century.

*  Bad, Bad, Bad Genealogist and Researching and Driving by Michael Lacopo on the Hoosier Daddy? blog.  Michael's quest continues, I think he's almost there.  It wouldn't be a great research story without some errors of omission, would it?  We've all done this, i'm sure!

*  The Top Five Tips for FamilySearch Family Tree by James Tanner on the Rejoice and be Exceeding Glad blog.  James comments on a Help article about the Family Tree.

*  BCG Portfolio Madness by Cari Taplin on the Genealogy Pants blog.  Cari did it and lived to tell about it.  congrats, Cari!

*  Journey Through My Thompson Family History by Nique Starpg on the My Journey: Breaking down the Walls blog.  Look at the treasure trove that Nique has collected - 6 generations of pictures, Washington family slave lists, and much more!

*  5 Lessons We Can Learn From Who Do You Think You Are? by Yvette Hoitink on the Dutch Genealogy blog.  Yvette highlights lessons she's learned.

These genea-bloggers wrote weekly pick posts and news summary posts this week:

*  Recommended Reads by Linda Stufflebean on the Empty Branches on the Family Tree blog.

*  Friday Finds and Follows: 19 December 2014 by Miriam J. Robbins on the Ancestories: The Stories of My Ancestors blog.

*  Follow Friday ~ Fab Finds for December 19, 2014 by Jana Last on Jana's Genealogy and Family History Blog.

*  What We Are Reading: December 19th Edition by Amy Johnson Crow on the Ancestry.com Blog.

*  Friday Finds -- 12/19/14 by Julie Cahill Tarr on Julie's Genealogy & History Hub blog.

*  Saturday Serendipity (December 20, 2014) by John D. Tew on the Filiopietism Prism blog.

Readers are encouraged to go to the blogs listed above and read their articles, and add their blogs to your Favorites, Feedly, another RSS feed, or email if you like what you read. Please make a comment to them also - all bloggers appreciate feedback on what they write.

Did I miss a great genealogy blog post? Tell me! I am currently reading posts from over 1550 genealogy bloggers using Feedly, but I still miss quite a few it seems.

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Make a Surname Christmas Tree

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 
 It's Saturday Night again - 
time for some more Genealogy Fun!!




Come on, everybody, join in and accept the mission and execute it with precision.  

Leslie Ann had a post on her Ancestors Live Here blog last year titled Wordless Wednesday -- Surname Christmas Tree which I thought was a great idea for an SNGF challenge on a Surname Saturday.  Are you game?

1)  Go see Leslie Ann's post, and figure out how you could make something similar to hers or to mine below.  

2)  Make your Surname Christmas Tree using your ancestral surnames - there's no limit on the number of surnames - and decorate your tree as you wish.  

3)  Show us your Surname Christmas Tree and tell us how you made it in a blog post of your own, in a Facebook post or in a Google+ post.

Here's mine:


Here's how I did it:

*  I used my word processor to add the surnames in an approximate tree shape.
*  I colored the surnames green for the tree and brown for the trunk.
*  I went to Google Images and looked for tree ornaments to decorate my tree, saved them, and inserted them into the word processing page.  
*  I saved the word processing page as a PDF file.
*  I opened the PDF file, reduced the magnification, and used the Winsdows Snipping Tool to create a JPG image.
*  I added the JPG image as above.

It did take me over an hour to create...I have over 10 generations of ancestral surnames on the tree above.  I hope I didn't spell any names wrong!

I showed you mine, now please show me yours!  

Thank you, Leslie Ann, for a great SNGF idea!
