Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- What is Next on Your "To-Do" List?

 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) What is next on your genealogy "To Do" list? [Thank you to Linda Stufflebean for suggesting topics!]

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:

There is not just one item on my "To-Do" list! I multi-task pretty good.  

a)  I wrote about my Buck quandary in Rabbit Holes With Randy - Which Mary Buck is Rebecca's Ancestor?  I have determined that she is the daughter of Samuel and Sarah (Walker?) Buck based on Samuel's 1760 will, proved in 1761.  But which Samuel Buck is it?  There are several candidates, but I cannot find one who died or was buried in 1761 consistent with the heirs-at-law in the will. My next step in this process is to look at the Massachusetts Land Records, 1620-1986 collection on FamilySearch to see if there is more evidence there for family relationships, when they moved from one place to another, etc..

b)  At the top of my previous "to-do" list is to find and select images after 1793 for the Hilperton [Wiltshire] Land Assessment records on FamilySearch.  These records are only available at a FamilySearch library or center.  In earlier years, I gathered the records form 1773 to 1793.  This collection goes up to 1884, and lists who resided in Hilperton, relative to other households, in every year - like a census but with no ages.  It provides the property owner and the current resident.  There are several Richman, Rich and Marshman families in Hilperton in this time frame, and this resource may identify their residence place, who the neighbors were, and when they first and last appeared in the collection.

c)  Near the top of my previous "to-do" list is to gather more land records for my ancestral families in Killingly and Putnam, Connecticut.  These records are on FamilySearch microfilm that are restricted to a FamilySearch library or center.  My White, Wade and Richmond ancestral families resided in these Windham County towns.

d)  I need to continue finding descendants of my 4th great-grandparents - all 32 sets of them.  I add these people to my RootsMagic file, which is synced to my AncestryMember Tree, to help with identifying common ancestors for my AncestryDNA Matches.  I use Ancestry, FamilySearch, Findmypast and MyHeritage record collections and family trees, plus Geni and WikiTree trees to identify candidates.  If a descendant is deceased, I can usually find a birth year and place, a spouse's name with a marriage year and place, and a death date year and place, and perhaps a burial location and a newspaper obituary or death notice.

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

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.
