Digital Photo Organization, an Ahnentafel Report, & Surname Visualization (GB Games 2010)

Last night and today were very productive for my competition in the GB Games of 2010. I tagged, described, and organized seven more digital photos and added them to my genealogy master file. This work would go toward Task D in category 3 -- Organize Your Research. Though I already completed that task, I must keep going if I really want to organize my files.

Next, I added my profile to LinkedIn. This was an informal "Expand Your Knowledge" task for me. I really thought LinkedIn was more of a job-seeking site. It really is another place to network and make connections in a certain field of study. I chose to promote my interest in cemetery research.

My next task was getting my ahnentafel report online. It took me a little bit of time to get it formatted correctly, but it's now done. You may reach it by clicking on "Ahnentafel." The link is located at the top of any page on this blog, just below the header. Here is a direct link.

Since Blogger has added these page capabilities, I'm starting to think it would be a good idea to integrate one of my blogs (Southern Graves) into a domain I have -- www.southerngraves.net . The website has actually been neglected somewhat because I focus more on the blog. Maybe if I integrate the two, I'd be more apt to work on both.

I'm a little nervous about this, though. It seems easy enough to set up through Blogger, so I don't know why I'm skittish. Has anyone else done this? Is it as painless as it seems?

Anyway, back to the games. I also created a surname visualization with Wordle and posted it to my Surnames page.

Another thing I accomplished was getting started on my Surname Saturday posts. This is a blogging theme I've wanted to incorporate at LL, but was not taking the time to do so. Today, I pre-published three Surname Saturdays! I'm quite proud of that.

Finally, and this really has nothing to do with the games, I created a couple of graphic signatures to use at the end of my posts. This is something else I've been "meaning to do" for while. Check one out at the end.

So! Today I upgraded one of my bronze medals to a silver, and one of my silver medals to a gold. This brings my current medal count to 1 bronze, 2 silver, and 3 gold.

I next want to tackle the ancestor timeline. If I can work it out, I'd like to make it a female ancestor and get started on an entry for the March edition of the Carnival of Genealogy. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Mapping My Cousins (52 Weeks to Better Genealogy #7)

I've played with Google Maps before and loved it. Quite a bit of time has passed since I last tinkered with it, though. Since I really didn't have an immediate project in mind, I decided to create a simple map. This one provides locations for all of my YOUNG cousins. Young is not a terribly unusual name, so I expected these cousins to be all over the map. Especially since I was not focusing on a particular line, but the surname itself. I was a bit surprised when I saw all my cousins with the Young surname were from two states -- Missouri and Texas.

Above is actually a screen capture. I was not able to get the fullest view I wanted with the embedding codes. To view the actual map, click here. Each place marker has a short description of who did what there.

I'm glad I participated in this weeks challenge, as I was reminded of the endless possibilities of using Google Maps in charting and writing about your family history. I'm going to try and add maps to each of my relative's files.

GB Games 2010: A New Name & New Goal (Recap of Day 3)

I was a busy little lady today. After I got home from my "real" job, I was able to devote some time to the GB Games 2010.

While doing a bit of data entry, I decided to perform a quick search on Google using my second cousin's name (Trellis O. Young) to verify a website source. This actually led me to a recent obituary for my third cousin, Treva Revay Yates. I'm sad to say she passed away last month at the young age of 55. Reading the obituary, however, gave me the name of her mother. This was information I did not have.

Even before this happened, I read a post written by Heather at [Family] History is the Lie Commonly Agreed Upon. The post was about her new organization system. One of the things she decided to try was a "clean" genealogy folder where she put all of her data without trying to divide it by surname.

I think this is a great idea, and I am going to give it a try. I often get bogged down trying to decide which surname folder a certain file should go in. If I tag the file with a good description, I should always be able to find it without having to remember which surnames folder I chose to attach it to. It's not likely I will complete this before the end of the GB Games 2010, but these challenges have motivated me.

Now for a more complete recap:

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources - Today I completed 39 source citations. Woo Hoo! That gives me a gold medal, and I'm one away from a diamond.

2. Back Up Your Data - I'm one step closer to getting a handle on this habit I'm trying to form. I completed half of Task A. I have decided to give Mozy a try after reading about it on a couple of geneablogs. Hopefully I will have time tomorrow to download the free trial and see exactly how it works.

3. Organize Your Research - I started on Task A and organized a couple of hard files. Task D I completed yesterday. I also started on Task E by creating 16 data entries into my database. Only four more to go to finish that one.

4. Expand Your Knowledge - did not compete

5. Write, Write, Write - I created a new page on the Southern Graves blog for Featured Articles. That completes Task E, giving me a bronze medal. I'm still planning on the genealogy report for LL, and I want to get moving on the "Surname Saturday" theme.

6. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness - For Task A I commented on 5 new-to-me geneablogs. There sure are a lot of great ones out there. I participated in an indexing project by posting an obituary to my Southern Obituaries blog, completing Task E. I also started following four new geneablogs, finishing Task G. Finishing three tasks in this category gives me gold medal!

My standings as of 15 February 2010: 2 bronze, 2 gold

I hope you are reaching your GB Games goals!

Surnames Now Have Their Own Page

Since Blogger added the static pages feature, I created a page just for surnames. A link (simply entitled "Surnames") is at the top of any Lincecum Lineage page you are on, just below the header. Once on the surnames page, you may click on a surname to be taken to all articles pertaining to that name. Also, you may click on the "Home" link to return to the main LL page containing the most recent posts.

I think this is an awesome feature, and I am so happy Blogger added it. I'm sure I will be creating additional pages in the future, so stay tuned!

Here is a direct link - Lincecum Lineage Surnames Page.

Another Cousin Gone

I'm always a little sad when I am conducting research and find an obituary for a cousin that recently passed away. Especially since the Internet - email, facebook, twitter, etc,... I find myself thinking how it would have been nice to have met them. Even if "met" simply means an email or two.

On the other hand, I am thankful to find this obituary. Before reading it, I knew nothing but the name of this cousin. The clues found within the short article lead me to census records and more connections.

Velma Young (my 5th cousin, 3x removed in law) was born about 1920 to Eugene Henry Young and his wife Louise. She married James Woods Love in 1945, and they had at least one daughter. Velma died 21 June 2006 and was laid to rest at San Jose Burial Park in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas.

I'm sorry we never met.

1910 US Census: Spring Creek Township, Douglas County, Missouri (ED 59, Pg 2A)

Sometimes, when searching through census records, you are lucky to come across a page with more than one family connection. Well, that is just what happened when I was initially looking for Ella / Ellie Youngblood. She was the wife of my great grand uncle, Harrison Watts. Harrison's sister, Cora Etta, married my great grandfather Samuel Prine.

Anyway, the census page in question is Page 2A of Enumeration District 59 (Spring Creek Township) in Douglas County, Missouri, USA. Families 18, 19, 20, 21, and 22 are all related to me through the aforementioned PRINE family.

Family 18 was headed by Thomas B. Youngblood. His daughter Ella was sister-in-law to my great grandmother, Cora Etta Watts Prine. Family 19 was head by Jay Youngblood, son of Thomas and brother of Ella.

Family 20 was headed by James Essary. His first cousin Delpha Essary married my great grand uncle Lynn Prine.

Family 21 was headed by Daniel Jennings. Two of his daughters married two of my great grand uncle Prines.

Family 22 was headed by Lewis Roller. His granddaughter Emma Alice Roller married my great grand uncle Mark Prine.

That was a pretty cool. If the genealogy gods are accepting requests -- I wish for more of those to be included in future research.
