Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Your "7 Generations in 1" Chart

 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. DNAsleuth (Ann Raymont) created a 7-in-1 chart showing 7 generations of ancestors on one page several weeks ago - see her blog post at https://dnasleuth.wordpress.com/2020/09/01/7-gen-1-sheet/.  In her post, there is a link to her Word document if you wish to use it.

2.  Linda Stufflebean's husband, Dave, took the concept a step further, and created an Excel template of the 7-in-1 chart.  You can download Dave's file from my Google Drive at   https://drive.google.com/file/d/1s7rTacxacWVCWxUEWq5pAArJCv8mCZWT/view?usp=sharing.  Linda's chart is in https://emptybranchesonthefamilytree.com/2020/09/using-excel-to-display-7-family-generations-on-1-sheet/ (I opened it to "Editor" so you can download it and work with it).

Here is an image of the blank 7-in-1 chart:


As you can see, the left column is the Generation number, and the other columns are for ancestors of Gen. 1 listed in columns for each grandparent.  So the chart covers Ancestors #1 through 127 in an ahnentafel list or a large pedigree chart.

3.  The challenge tonight is to fill out your 7-in-1 chart and show it to us.  I used the spreadsheet, added the ancestor numbers while adding the names (starting with 1 = me, 2- father, 3= mother, etc.).   I added the names and birth-death years (if known) for the first 7 generations.  Then I colored the boxes by birth place by countries, and saved my chart as an XLS file.  I then saved my chart as a JPG by using the Windows Snipping Tool to create the image. This task took me an hour to complete, so plan ahead!

4.  Show us your 7-in-1 chart in your own blog post, or in a Facebook post.  Please leave a link to your creation in a comment on this post.

Here's mine:


My columns are wider than Ann's and Linda's because I added birth-death years which really help me remember my ancestors.  I could put the color code on the bottom of the table too.

What other color coding could we do?  I want to do color coding by States/Provinces, by Death location, by Marriage Location, by Occupation, by Military Service, etc.

What other Color Coding can you think of?

Thank you to Ann Raymont for the chart concept and the Word file master, and to Linda and Dave for providing the Excel file master.

UPDATE:  On Friday, 25 September at 8 p.m. PDT, the FamilySearch list showed them ost recent collection updated was from 15 September.  By 10 p.m. PDT, the list ha been updated to 25 September.  By Saturday, 26 September, at 8 a.m., the list was updated to 26 September.  The 26 September changes are reflected above.

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

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.

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, 25 September 2020

 I received this information from Findmypast today:                          

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



New family records dating back to Colonial America

Discover emigrant ancestors and much more this Findmypast Friday.

Swiss Emigrants to the American Colonies, 1734-1744

With newly-created indexes for easy searching, this publication records the details of over 3,000 Swiss immigrants to the New World. Translated and transcribed from an original manuscript held in the State Archive of Zurich, the records can reveal your Swiss ancestors' names and ages, where they came from, settled and more.

The collection contains large numbers of emigrants who intended to travel to Carolina, as it was the most heavily advertised colony in Switzerland. In many cases, the circumstances around their departure is indicated. Most of these events and pieces of information were submitted by local priests.

Emigrant Ministers To The Americas

Spanning 1690-1811, this collection can be searched by name, year, destination and keywords to discover Church of England clergy working in the American colonies. Many Church of England ministers were given a bounty by the King of England to go and practice their faith in overseas colonies.

This list was compiled largely from records known as Money Books, King’s Warrant Books, Treasury Papers, and Exchequer of Receipt Papers, documenting the funds spent to send missionaries to the New World. However, most of the entries also include where the individual was intending to travel to, specific roles, such as clerk or lawyer, and frequently, additional genealogical information.

Winthrop Fleet Passenger List, 1630

A decade after the Mayflower, the Winthrop Fleet took hundreds more English settlers to America. Search this collection to discover the passengers and their amazing stories. The voyage saw 11 vessels, led by John Winthrop, and between 700 and 1,000 English settlers arrive in the New World.

The fleet included a large group of Puritan families, with a variety of skills, skilled labour, and family groups, to ensure a healthy and robust colony. The fleet itself was funded by the Massachusetts Bay Colony. These records, originally published in 1930, describe the background, the experience and the motivation for the fleet, as well as listing many of the participants by name with genealogical details.

Newspapers

Runcorn Weekly News (covering 1913-1933 and 1936-1970) and Clare Freeman and Ennis Gazette (covering 1855-1884) are brand new to the site this week.

Plus, more pages have been added to Evening Mail (from 1869-1872, 1874-1885 and 1892-1922) and Cork Daily Herald (from 1897-1899).
