Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Your School Graduations

Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 

time for some more Genealogy Fun!!



Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):

1)  Most of us graduated from elementary school, junior high school, high school, and perhaps college.

2)  What schools did you graduate from (and when, if you dare!) - and do you have a photograph?

3)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook post.


Here's mine:


I graduated from 6th grade at Brooklyn Elementary School (Ash and 30th Street in San Diego) in June 1955.  I don't have a photo of this august occasion.

I graduated from Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (Upas Street and Park Blvd. in San Diego) in June 1958.  Here is a photograph of me with my 3 year old brother Scott before we departed for the ceremony:

I graduated from San Diego High School (at Russ Blvd. and Park Blvd. in San Diego) in June 1961, with Honors!  This is my high school yearbook photo:

I graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering in January 1966 with Honors.  I did not attend the graduation, and don't have a photograph from that time frame.  Here is an image of my diploma.

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

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list 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.

New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday, 21 June 2019

I received this information from Findmypast today:

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


New Records Available To Search This Findmypast Friday



There are over 6.4 million new records and newspaper articles available to search and explore this Findmypast Friday including over 264,000 new and exclusive parish records that have been digitised and made available online for the first time in association with the Lancashire Archives.
Over 31,000 additional records are now available to search amongst out collection of Lancashire Baptisms. The new additions cover the parishes of:
·        Edge Hill, St Nathaniel -1869 to 1918
·        Liverpool, St John - 1785 to 1898

These records include both transcripts and images of the original documents. Each result will reveal when and where your ancestor's baptism took place, the names of their parent's and father's occupation.
A further 179,000 records have also been added to our collection of Lancashire Banns & Marriages. These new marriage registers add coverage for a selection of new Liverpool parishes, including:
·        Edge Hill, St Nathaniel - 1871 to 1943
·        Everton, Emmanuel – 1835 to 1943
·        Liverpool, St John – 1785 to 1898

Over 54,000 new records from the central Liverpool Parish of St John. These new records span the years 1767 to 1883 and will allow you to discover when your Liverpool ancestors were laid to rest.
The transcripts and images within this collection will enable you to discover when your ancestor died, their occupation, the date and location of their burial, as well as their age at death.
A whopping 5.7 million new records are now available to search within our collection of United States Obituary Notices.
These records, obtained from the tributes.com and currentobituary.com websites will enable you to discover your ancestor's name, birth and death years as well as the original obituary text. Additional information such as images and details about the records can be found on the source's website.
Explore the records of investors in The Company of Scotland Trading to Africa and the Indies, also called the Scottish Darien Company. It was funded by investments from people across Scotland. These transcripts will provide you with information on those who invested money and their representatives.
The Darien scheme was an unsuccessful attempt by the Kingdom of Scotland to establish a colony called "Caledonia" in Panama in the late 1690s. Opposed by commercial interests from England, the company of Scotland raised subscriptions for the scheme in Amsterdam, Hamburg, and London. English investors soon raised their share but withdrew their money after King William and the English Parliament turned against the venture. However, by August 1696 the Scottish investors raised £400,000 themselves.
As the scheme was backed by approximately 20% of all the money circulating in the country at the time, its failure left the entire Lowlands in substantial financial ruin and was an important factor in weakening Scottish resistance to the Act of Union. In July 1699, the colony was abandoned due to inadequate provisions, the unfamiliar hot and humid climate had caused fever to spread, and many settlers died. Of the 1,200 settlers, only 300 survived.
To mark Icelandic National Day this week, we have made over 287,000 baptism and marriage records from the land of fire and ice available to search on Findmypast.
These two new indexes span the years 1730 to 1920 and will generate hints against your Findmypast Family tree.
A bumper crop of new and updated titles have been added to the collection this week, with 163,404 new pages added. We have seven brand new titles added this week, covering both England and Scotland. We have three new London publications joining us – the Harrow Midweek, the Middlesex Gazette and the Middlesex Independent – as well as one Scottish title (the Northern Ensign & Weekly Gazette) and one new Essex title (the Essex Guardian). We are also delighted to welcome two specialist sporting titles – namely, the Volunteer Record & Shooting News, which 'warmly supports the interests of the shooting man,' and the Fishing Gazette, a publication which covers all types of fishing across the world.
Further to these new arrivals, we have also updated sixteen of our existing titles. Updates this week cover the length and the breadth of the United Kingdom and Ireland, with updates incorporating publications from Aberdeen to Jersey, from Kingston to County Down, from Bristol to Kensington, from Crawley to Strabane.

                               ===========================================
Disclosure:  I have a complimentary subscription to Findmypast, and have accepted meals and services from Findmypast, as a Findmypast Ambassador.  This has not affected my objectivity relative to Findmypast and its products.

Thomas Gach wrote his will on 23 April 1763, noting[5]:

"Item: I give and bequeath to my well beloved Wife Elizabeth the Use of all the above mentioned Lands and Premises, or so much thereof, as She shall be fit to demand, during her natural Life or Widowhood; Also I give and bequeath to my said Wife all my Moveables and Personal Estate whatsoever, and wheresoever, to be at her own proper Use and Disposal, she paying thereout all my just Debts and Funeral Charges."

He also named his wife Elizabeth as one of the executors of his will.  

Elizabeth (Bloodgood) Gach died after her husband wrote his will in 1763, and before it was proved on 9 March 1770.  The other executor, James Eddy of Woodbridge, filed an affidavit stating that the other executor (Elizabeth) was deceased.  The exact date of Elizabeth's death is not known, and her burial place is not known[5].
