In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner and use keywords (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!

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.

Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Date Your Grandfather Was Born

It's Saturday Night, 

time for more Genealogy Fun!!

For this week's mission (should you decide to accept it), answer the question:

1)  What day of the week was your Grandfather born (either one)? Tell us how you found out.

2) What has happened in recorded history on your Grandfather's birth date (day and month)? Tell us how you found out, and list five events.

3)  What famous people have been born on your Grandfather's birth date?  Tell us how you found out, and list five of them.

4)  Put your responses in your own blog post, in a comment on this blog post, or in a status or comment on Facebook.

Here's mine (I will refrain from sharing how I found things out):

1)  I picked my maternal grandfather, Lyle Lawrence Carringer, who was born on 2 November 1891 in San Diego, California.

2 November 1891 was a Monday.

2)  Important things in recorded history that occurred on 2 November include:

*  In 1889, North and South Dakota were admitted to the Union as the 39th and 40th states.
*  In 1895, the prize for the first gasoline powered race in the U.S. was $2000.
*  In 1920,  KDKA in Pittsburgh, starts broadcasting as the first commercial radio station.
*  In 1947, Howard Hughes made the first and only flight of the Spruce Goose, the largest fixed-wing aircraft ever built.
*  In 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill creating Martin Luther King Jr. day.

3)  Here are some of the famous people born on 2 November (I'll bet my grandfather didn't know this!):

*  In 1460, King Edward V of England was born (died 1473)
*  In 1734, Daniel Boone was born (died 1820).
*  In 1755, Marie Antoinette, wife of King Louis XVI of France, was born (died 1793).
*  In 1795, James K. Polk, 11th President of the United States, was born (died 1849).
*  In 1913, Burt Lancaster, an American actor, was born (died 1994)

4)  That's it!

Seeing AncestryDNA ThruLines From Your Ancestry Member Tree Pedigree Chart

I was looking through my Ancestry Member Tree - the one that has my DNA attached to it -  and noted a new "feature" on the Pedigree Chart:

At the bottom of the icons on the left side of the screen is a "DNA" helix icon.  

I clicked on that, and a "DNA Discoveries" card opened on the right side of the screen:

The "ThruLines (TM) Icons" button is set to "Off."

I moved it to "On" by clicking on the right side of the gray "Off" button" and set it to "On:"

Immediately, every person on my pedigree chart, back to 5th great-grandparents, sported a blue "ThruLines(TM) icon."

I clicked on one of my 2nd great grandparents, James Richman, and saw:

The card now has a section for "ThruLines(TM) - with a green button to "View ThruLines for James Richman." 

I clicked on it and saw the ThruLines screen for James Richman:

I wondered if the Profile for an Ancestor has a "ThruLines Icon" also, but I don't see it:

I think that this is a useful feature for Ancestry Member Trees.  It's a short-cut - you don't have to wade through all of your ThruLines on the AncestryDNA ThruLines page to find the ancestor you want.

However, it can be used to show ThruLines:

*  on the Ancestry Member Tree with the DNA results attached to it;

*  for the 5th great-grandparents or closer;

*  for common ancestors that have more than one ThruLine to DNA matches;

*  for ancestors for whom you, as the tree owner, are the only DNA match. 

UPDATED:  The last line above was inaccurate - it was not meant to be exclusive.  I added the third bullet, and changed the 4th bullet above.  It does show the icon when there are other DNA match ThruLines from the common ancestor, but it also shows the icon when the tree owner is the only ThruLine. 


Disclosure:  I have had a paid subscription to since 2000, and use the site every day.  I have received material considerations from in years past, but that does not affect my objectivity in writing about their products and services.

4)  NOTES (with source citations as indicated in brackets):  

The information on this family was obtained from the book Early Germans of New Jersey by Chambers[1], and the book The Able Aubles by Juanita Hayter Crampton[2].

Maria --?-- was born in about 1693 in Germany, perhaps in Alsace-Lorraine[2].  Her birth date, birthplace, and parents are not known, although some researchers claim she is Maria Maier born in about 1703.

She married Andreas Abel (1690-1751) in about 1713 in Germany[2].  

The Andreas Abel family left the port of Portsmouth, England on 22 June 1728 bound for America on the ship Albany, master Lazarus Oxman from Rotterdam.  This ship landed in Philadelphia on 4 September 1728[2].  They settled in Fox Hill in what is now Morris County, New Jersey.

They had four children, with the first three born in Germany, and the last in New Jersey[2].  They are:

*  Mathias Abel (1715-1783), married about 1750 Margaret --?-- (1729-????).
*  Andreas Abel (1717-1782), married about 1740 Hanna --?-- (1720-1783).
*  Michel Abel  (1719-1791), married about 1755 Christina --?-- (1730-1804).
*  Paul Abel (1731-1773), married Maria Magdalena "Leany" --?-- (1735-1800)

Andreas Abel died on 9 April 1751 in Roxbury, New Jersey(AA).  He left a will written in German, dated 28 February 1750[2,5]

He bequeathed to his wife, Maria (the English translation is, in part):

"My two sons, Michael and Paul shall maintain my wife, Mary (Maria).  My son Paul shall have my small chest and the wagon and the new saddle and one bea hive and one pewter quart.  And my wife shall live in my house, shall keep her own fowls and they shall find my wife victuals and drink and if they plant, maintain her well.  Shall each of my two sons give her yearly ten bushels of wheat and one fat hog, and shall carry the wheat to the mill for her to be ground when she wants it.  They shall bring the firewood to the house and they shall keep two cows and one horse, winter and summer, feed them and keep them.  

"I give to my wife, Mary (Maria), sixty acres of land by a line joining Court Casper downwards, for a help for her if she should want. My wife shall have two pewter basins and a small pewter basin and two pewter plets, two spoons and one cow.  She shall have her choice out of the flock and one heifer, one mare and a mare called Afso.  She shall have half the orchard or half the apples and two bea hives and her saddle and the great chest, the painted tankard, one iron pot, a copper kettle of one biggest and a little iron pot and she and Paul shall have light sheep and the big iron kettle together."

Maria (--?--) Abel, likely married, secondly, a man with the last name of Tedrick.  On January 10, 1771, Mary Tedrick of Roxburry township, Morris County, wrote her will, and the abstract of the will is as follows[4]:

"To eldest son, Matthias Auble, 20 shillings.  To son, Paul Auble, 10 pounds.  Sons Michael Auble and Andreas Auble, 60 acres of land where I live.  To Samuel Drake's wife, my best cow and the bell she has on, with a strap, for attending me while sick, and I give Samuel four bushels of wheat and three of buckwheat for the favor he has done me. Son, Michael Auble's daughters, Caty and Eve, each a pewter basin. The rest of my estate I give to my grandchildren."

This will finds Mary with the same 60 acres that was left to her by her husband, Andreas Able and also mentions their four sons(AA).

Mary (--?--) (Abel) Tedrick died in March, 1771[3].  She is probably buried on the Davenport Tract in Roxbury, New Jersey, the site of their farm and near the Union Reformed Church in Fox Hill[2].
