Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - What Genealogy Activity Have You Spent Time On?

   It's Saturday Night - 

time for more Genealogy Fun! 


Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible music here) is to:

1)  I am completely out of ideas for this week - and am late in posting.  What genealogy activity have you spent time on this week?

2)  Write your own blog post, or add your response as a comment to this blog post, in a Facebook Status post or note.

Here's mine:

Family history has to be a genealogy activity!  Linda's brother and his wife came on Thursday and went home today.  We visited Linda all three days, and Tami and two of her kids came down today also, so I need a nap.  

The only real genealogy activity I recall this week, besides the normal blog themes, is trying to ADD my 1081 profiles to WikiTree.  I've been successful for about 250 of them over the past two weeks, but have plenty more to do.  I try to do 20-40 per day but each addition requires multiple clicks and perhaps a source citation if I don't have one.  

Today, the latest quarterly of the New England Historic Genealogical Society became available, and one of the articles is the English ancestry of Roger Willis (1635-1700), my 8th great-grandfather, so I added two more generations of Willis ancestry.

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

My friend and SDGS colleague, Marshall, has come up with a way to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED, and to alphabetize the entries in each category.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me 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.

Descendants of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence 


Each signer of this historic document is included in this collection, new to Findmypast this week.

These 18,000 records have been kindly supplied by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. 


Pennsylvania, Oaths of Allegiance Lists 

 Also new to Findmypast this week, with these 13,000 records you might discover if an ancestor renounced their allegiance to the British monarchy, and instead pledged

support to the Continental Congress. Here, you may learn where and when your ancestor made this pledge. 

 This new collection comprises 10,000 PDF records to help you discover if your ancestor was directly involved in the fighting during the American Revolution. The records normally include the name of the soldier, their rank and their type of involvement. 

 

Nearly 13,000 records have been added into this existing collection, with the new material covering Angus and Fife. Explore years of death, others buried in the same plot, denominations and more.
