New Records Available To Search this Findmypast Friday, 16 November 2018

I received this information from Findmypast today:
===============================================


New Records Available To Search this Findmypast Friday

There are more than 383,000 new records and newspapers available to search this Findmypast Friday.

British Armed Forces, First World War Soldiers' Medical Records

Over 224,000 new records have been added to our collection of National Archive's First World War Soldiers' Medical Records. Including both images of transcripts, these records will enable you to discover when and where your ancestor was wounded, the nature of their wounds, where they were treated, how long they were held for treatment and details pertaining to their service history.
This collection comprises The National Archives' series, MH106, War Office: First World War Representative Medical Records of Servicemen. Only a sample of the medical records was retained. These records are a representative selection of the full collection of medical records created during the war. Due to data protection, Findmypast has only published records where the admission year is dated back 100 years. For this reason, more records will be released in the coming years. The records include admissions and discharge records from hospitals, field ambulances, and casualty clearing stations. You will also find records from Queen Alexandra's Military Hospital before the First World War, dating from 1910. Below is a full list of the hospitals and medical facilities represented in the records.

King's Royal Rifle Corps Chronicle 1900-1920

Explore more than 2,400 pages offering fascinating glimpses into a proud regiment and its evolution from the Boer war to the end of the First World War. These books provide, in many cases, the only record of men who served with the King's Royal Corps, certainly up until 1914. This is the most complete collection of King's Royal Rifle Corps Chronicles published online and a welcome addition to our ever-growing military collection.
The King's Royal Rifle Corps Chronicle was first published by the regiment in 1901 and this release by Findmypast covers the years 1901 to 1920 with gaps, at present, for 1915 and 1919. The King's Royal Rifle Corps fielded four regular battalions and a regimental depot headquartered at Winchester and the chronicles record, in often minute detail, where these battalions were stationed and what they were doing in those stations. All serving officers are named, as well as colour sergeants and often other senior NCOs and some riflemen.

Rifle Brigade Chronicle 1890-1920

First published by the regiment in 1890 the Chronicle on Findmypast contains over 4,800 pages and covers a complete run from 1890 to 1920. These volumes will be of particular interest to anyone who has a general fascination for the late Victorian and Edwardian regular army and the evolution, and destruction, of a regiment during the First World War. These books provide, in many cases, the only record of men who served with the Rifle Brigade, certainly up until 1914.
These volumes are often profusely illustrated with the men appearing in these photos usually named. The volume for 1893, in particular, includes a number of plates of named officers, warrant officers and NCOs from the 1st, 2nd and 4th Battalions as well as articles on such diverse topics as notes from the Crimea, the Mashonaland frontier delimitation, marching in India, and sport in Western Tibet. Sport played a big part of regimental life and inter-company and inter-regimental sports are often detailed at great length.

British Armed Forces, Board Of Trade Rolls Of Honour 1914-1918

On the 19 December 1923, Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin, a former President of the Board of Trade unveiled a Roll of Honour which was initiated by the staff after the war. The Roll was inscribed with the details of more than 2,600 employees who lost their lives during the Great War.
Each record is a transcript of the original. The amount of information listed varies, but the records will usually list a combination of your ancestor's birth year, birth place, death date, manner of death, place of enlistment, service number, regiment/corps, rank, decorations, civil rank, home department, family details, residence and more.

52 Ancestors - Week 252: #377 Joanna (--?--) Champlin (about 1692-about 1762) of Rhode Island

*  their son #1 Randall Jeffrey Seaver (1943-living)

=====================================================

1)  PERSON (with source citations as indicated in brackets):
 
*  Name:                         Joanna --?-- [1]    
*  Alternate Name:        Joanna Champlin[2]

*  Sex:                            Female  

2)  INDIVIDUAL EVENTS (with source citations as indicated in brackets):

3)  SHARED EVENTS (with source citations as indicated in brackets):

*  Spouse 1:              William Champlin (1687-1778)    
*  Marriage 1:           before 1720 (before about age 33), Rhode Island, United States[1]

*  Child 5:               Dorcas Champlin (1732-    )    
*  Child 6:               Temperance Champlin (1738-    )  
     
4)  NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):  

The parents names, birth date and birth place of Joanna --?--  are unknown.  Some authored works and online family trees say that Joanna's maiden name is Joanna Watson.  Apparently, there is no extant record with that name.

Joanna --?-- was born in about 1692, probably in Rhode Island.  

The most complete Champlin family history with information about this family is by Robert Champlin of Newmarket, Ontario[1].  He provided a computer file of many of the early Champlin families.  Some of the information below was compiled on July 17, 2000 by Robert Champlin, and supplied by him for the personal use of the readers.

Joanna --?-- married William Champlin before 1720 and they had children[1], but there are no marriage or birth records for the children in town records:

*  William Champlin (born about 1720, perhaps in Charlestown, R.I.)
*  Michael Champlin (born about 1723, perhaps in Charlestown, R.I.)
*  John  Champlin (born about 1727, perhaps in Charlestown, R.I.)
*  Elijah Champlin (born about 1730, probably in Westerly, R.I.)
*  Dorcas Champlin (born about 1732, probably in Westerly, R.I.)
*  Temperance Champlin (born about 1738, probably in South Kingstown, R.I.)

The family resided in Charlestown, Rhode Island until about 1730, when they moved to Westerly, Rhode Island[1].  In 1754, they were in South Kingstown, Rhode Island when William bought land there.  In two 1757 deeds where William sold land in South Kingstown, Joanna released her dower rights in the deed[1].

The family moved to Charlestown, Rhode Island, and William bought 244 acres of land there in 1760.  He sold half of the land to his son Elijah Champlin in late 1760, and Joanna released her dower rights[2].  In 1762, William sold the remaining half of the land in Charlestown, but Joanna did not sign the deed releasing her dower rights.  This implies that she may have died between 1760 and 1762. 

There are no death records for Joanna Champlin.  There are no known probate records for William or Joanna Champlin, and there are no burial records for them.

FamilySearch Unlocking Centuries of Italian Ancestry Records

I received this information from FamilySearch today:

===================================================

FamilySearch Unlocking Centuries of Italian Ancestry Records

Enzo Ferrari, founder of Ferrari sports cars. 

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (15 November 2018), FamilySearch International announced free access to over  150 million Italian historical genealogical records—the largest online collection of its kind. The unprecedented initiative is the result of collaboration between FamilySearch, the Italian government, the Italian State Archives (Direzione Generale per gli Archivi or DGA), and many other archives. The free collections include over 200 years of digitized images of birth, marriage, death, and other significant family history records from all regions of Italy and many other repositories. Search the free Italy collections online at  FamilySearch.org. 

Over 100 million people worldwide claim Italian roots. Today, tracing their origins to Italy is much easier. Joel Conte and his wife Victoria, both third generation Italians living in the United States, were able to extend their Italian lines back many generations using the newly accessible, free records online. “Using the Italian records and FamilySearch Family Tree hints, we were miraculously able to trace our Italian family back many generations in a short period of time,” said Conte. “It would have taken us years and decades previously to accomplish it.” 

FamilySearch has been preserving historical records from Italy archives for decades. In 2011, it launched a massive collaborative effort with the National Archives of Italy (DGA) that is proving to be “La Stele di Rosetta” (Rosetta Stone) for Italian descendants like Conte all over the world seeking their family origins. This project was the seminal initiative for all Italian historical projects with far reaching impacts. 


FamilySearch 4 Tips to Find Italian Ancestors

The effort has reached its initial goal to digitize all available birth, marriage, and death records from 1806 to 1945 found in the civil registrations of Italy in every state archive and make them available for free online. FamilySearch is now focusing on its second, much more challenging goal, to use online volunteers to create a searchable online database that makes every name, place, and date in each record (estimated to be over 500 million names) easily discoverable on any internet-enabled device—for free. 

The Italy civil registration records are the most complete of FamilySearch’s collections. FamilySearch also has Church records in Italy dating back to the 1500s. Starting a little later, Italy's court (tribunali) records can be found. Civil records became available after 1806. After annexing large sections of Italy during his reign, Napoleon Bonaparte introduced civil registration and the mandatory creation of duplicate records. Copies of birth, citizenship or residency, marriage, and death documents were kept in the community, and a second set were sent to the court having jurisdiction for the area. Today, these are a gold mine for Italian family history researchers—as they continue to become accessible online. 

Through agreements with Italian governments and other repositories, FamilySearch is preserving not only the civil records online, but also millions more from archives throughout Italy—essentially helping to open Italian archives to patrons all over the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The digital images are also a safety net against natural calamities and loss to human handling. 

FamilySearch has an ongoing goal to process over 15 million newly digitized historical records and scanned microfilm images yearly. 

"Amazingly, we will finish digitizing the civil records of all the Italian provinces in 2019, but the indexes that make the records easily searchable by name will take many more years," said Laura Giometta, who leads the FamilySearch Italian Records program. Until the records are indexed, they can be searched as a free digital image collection online. 

FamilySearch online volunteers from around the world are indexing the Italian records. "We have learned that English speakers with no prior foreign language experience can index the Italian historic records accurately without becoming fluent by learning to recognize key words through online training," said Ornella Lepore, indexing supervisor. She said very difficult records are still handled by language experts. 

Lepore says about 2,000 online volunteers are helping index the records—more than 1,000 from the US, about 530 more in Italy, and the rest from other countries.

*  Italian National Archives (DGA)

=============================================

NOTE:  These are remarkable records.  I've done some searching in them for my grandsons' Italian ancestors and found several birth, marriage and death records.  Indexing will really help me find more.

Seavers in the News -- Milo Seaver Dies in 1957 in Binghamton, New York

It's time for another edition of "Seavers in the News" - a weekly feature from the historical newspapers about persons with the surname Seaver that are interesting, useful, mysterious, fun, macabre, or add information to my family tree database.

This week's entry is from the Press and Sun-Bulletin [Binghamton, N.Y.]  newspaper dated 16 November 1957:

The transcription of the article is:

"MILO SEAVER, 53, of Straits Corners, died yesterday at Tioga General Hospital, Waverly.  He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Mildred (Holland) Seaver; six daughters, Mrs. Harriet Keene of the Town of Candor, Mrs. Christine Bogart of Utica, Mrs. Phyllis Clark of West Endicott, Mrs. Genevieve Farnham, Mrs. Virginia Miller and Mrs. Dorothy Eichorn, all of Owego; two sons, Donald of Owego and Carl Seaver of Straits Corners; one sister, Mrs. Alice Laycock of Bloomsburg, Pa.; four brothers, Russell of Straits Corners, Fred of Owego, Lewis of Endicott and Walter Seaver of West Endicott; 14 grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.  He was a member of the Straits Corners Baptist Church.  The body was moved to the Richards Funeral Home, Owego, where friends may call today from 7 to 9 p.m."

The source citation for the article is:

"OBITUARIES" Press and Sun-Bulletin [Binghamton, N.Y.] newspaper, dated 16 November 1957, page 12, column 5, Milo Seaver obituary; digital image, Newspapers.com   (https://www.newspapers.com :  accessed 15 November 2018).

What an excellent short obituary.  Fifteen names, including the maiden name of his wife and the married names of his daughters.

I had Milo G. Seaver (1904-1957) in my RootsMagic family tree database (and he is also in my Ancestry Member Tree, my MyHeritage tree and the FamilySearch Family Tree). He was born in Allegany County, New York, the son of Jesse Bradley Seaver and Edna Phoebe Brown.  He married Mildred L. Holland (1908-1980) in 1925 in Binghamton.  They had at least 10 children.

I did not have a married name for Harriet Keene, Christine Bogart, Phyllis Clark, or Dorothy Eichorn.  Now I need to find out the given name, birth date and death date of those four husbands and the marriage date if possible.  The Seaver family tree is never finished!

I am related to this Milo Seaver as a 6th cousin twice removed.

1817 Marriage Record for Sophia Buck and Lambert Brigham in Sterling, Mass. -- Post 438 for Treasure Chest Thursday

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - a chance to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1817 marriage record of Lambert Brigham and Sophia Buck in the Sterling, Massachusetts Town Records:

The Brigham-Buck marriage record is at the top of the right-hand page: 
The transcription of the birth record for Jonas Prescott is:

"[1817] Feb 12^th Joined Lambert Brigham and Sophia Buck both of Sterling in marriage, 
John Robbins Justice of the Peace"

The source citation for this record is:

"Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988," indexed database and digital image, Ancestry.com (https://www.ancestry.com : accessed 20 September 2012), "Sterling Births, Marriages and Deaths," Marriages, page 261 (penned), image 231 of 1007, Sophia Buck and Lambert Brigham entry.

This is the record of the marriage of Sophia Buck (1797-1882) to Lambert Brigham (1794-1834) in Sterling, Massachusetts.

This may be a Derivative Source record because it may have been copied from another, earlier, record book.  It is a record with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the names of the parties and the date and location of the event.

Sophia Buck (1797-1882) was born in Holden, Massachusetts, the daughter of Isaac Buck (1757-1846) and Martha Phillips (1764-after 1820).  Lambert Brigham (1794-1834) was the son of Phineas Brigham (1755-????) and Lydia Batherick (1752-????), and was born in Westborough.  Lambert Brigham is the first husband of Sophia Buck, and was the father of two sons by Sophia.  After Lambert died in 1834, Sophia (Buck) Brigham married, secondly, to Thomas J. Newton in about 1834, and had two children by him.  I have no idea what happened to Thomas J. Newton, but Sophia married, thirdly, in 1862 to Jonathan Stone (1795-1868) of Westborough.

Sophia (Buck) (Brigham) (Newton) Stone (1797-1882) was my 3rd great-grandmother, and had my 2nd great-grandmother Sophia Newton (1835-1923) by Thomas J. Newton (according to marriage and death records).  Sophia Newton married Edward Hildreth (1831-1899) in 1851, and their daughter Hattie Louisa Hildreth (1857-1920) is my great-grandmother.

My New Test Case For Ancestry Member Tree Indexing

In my post Good News and Bad News On Ancestry Member Tree Searches (posted Monday, 12 November 2018), I noted that the good news was that my "test case" for Ancestry Member Tree Indexing had finally been indexed recently.  

I had been checking since November 2017, so it took over a year for my 2nd great-grandfather Isaac Seaver (1823-1901) in my November 2017 Ancestry Member Tree to show up in the search results.

So now I need another "test case" for the next Ancestry Member Tree Indexing event.  I chose my first great-grandfather, Thomas Richmond (1848-1917).  



Today, I searched for records for him (using the "Search on Ancestry" button on the screen above), found several that were correct, and attached three of them to the Thomas Richmond profile.  The three attached records are listed under "Ancestry Sources" in the "Sources" list on the screen above.

As astute readers of Genea-Musings know, having an "Ancestry Source" (and not just any source like those listed in "Other Sources") seems to be a pre-requisite for the person profile to be included in an Index of Ancestry Member Trees.  

Saving an Ancestry Hint when in the Tree person profile adds the record to the "Ancestry Source" list.  Accepting Ancestry Hints using RootsMagic TreeShare does not seem to add a source to the "Ancestry Source" list.  

Now the watch is on for the next event of Ancestry Member Tree Indexing.  I hope that it occurs within a week or a month, and not a year or even never.  So Ancestry, I'll be watching to see if you are naughty or nice - as you know, I'm also known as Genea-Santa in some precincts!  

Just to cover my bases, I've attached records to about ten other person profiles in this Ancestry Member Tree.  Only 51,280 profiles to go!

To my readers:  

*  Does Ancestry index your person profiles who have an "Ancestry Source?"

*  Does Ancestry  index your person profiles who do not have an "Ancestry Source?"  

Please leave me a comment in the Comment link below.  Thank you!

Randy Ready for Junior High Graduation in June 1958 -- Post 540 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Recently, I discovered an envelope of small photographs saved when my mother died in 2002 - it was hiding in plain sight in the Genea-Cave! 

Included in the photo cache was this oldie-but-goodie - Randy and brother Scott in the patio in June 1958:


I think that this photograph was taken in June 1958 at the time of my 9th grade graduation from Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School in San Diego.  The setting is the patio next to our 30th Street home.  In this photo, I'm 14 years old, and Scott is almost two and a half years old.  That was probably my first suit.
