Office Hours - 06/04/15 - Who are these people on this record ?

Looking at a US Federal Census Record, there are some people who I don't know living in this household. How will I handle this.

Office Hours 02 June 2015 - Problem Step One

First step in try to resolve a problem. Genealogy Question is, Who are the Parents of 4 Children? That is really 2 or 4 questions, but will start with this question.

Will walk through reviewing various documents for the Two "people" that I think may be the parents. This will probably end up by taking this information and using Evidentia to answer this question.

Citation Up Date / Clean Up for me -- Family Search and Ancestry websites

I am always learning by following the Evidence Explained User Forum on https://www.evidenceexplained.com/

Today, the Editor, posted in Reply to #20 a very important item for me:
The title of the website differs from that of the corporation. It is onlyFamilySearch.  While many people (as Russ did) use FamilySearch.com as the website title, the actual title does not include .com. (The confusion apparently exists because Ancestry long used .com as part of its website title; but FamilySearch does not. That confusion should be helped, now, by the fact that Ancestry has dropped the .com from its title.) 1)
Up until today, I have been using "Ancestry.com" at the Website Title in those Templates in FTM2014 that call for that entry. I haven't been back to see, what the Editor clearly points out, that Ancestry had removed the ".com" from their website Title. Family Search hadn't been using the ".org" in their website title.

I now have a new clean up project to do. Very high on my priority list, by the way, to removed the ".com" and ".org" from Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org in the TEMPLATE screen. All new Citations will not include those characters going forward but in the future will go back to update the Citation's.

Reviewing my Citations aren't a bad thing, as I continually learn how to craft my citations.

A big THANK YOU to Elizabeth Shown Mills for ALL of her work that she has done for us and continues to help with Citation.

Have already made a note in Evidence Explained and my QuickSheets based on that discussion as a reminder for myself.

How to Record a Same Sex Relationship

I was asked, How do I record a Same Sex Relationship? The answer is easy, You ATTACH two people, attaching one person as the Spouse. Then, you select the appropriate relationship.

Key hint here, the display looks like "husband and wife", but that is only the visual for us, but the status is what is important and there are NO warnings that would prevent this relationship.

This is from my database, but changed the names and will no include any other details.

Here is an example; Person 1 and Person 2 are married and had a child, Person 3


Looking at the Marriage Line, hovering over the first ICON, you will see Marriages Facts, Notes, and Media:


For this couple, they were married and divorced


Selecting that ICON, you enter the various Marriage Facts, Notes, and Media as seen fit. The Marriage Facts are:


Person 2, meets and marries Person 4, so we need to first Add Person 4, as a spouse


Selecting the Spouse ICON, we Add Spouse. Then we enter the Name, on the Left (in this case)



 The Person 4 is listed correctly in the Right Panel of the Tree View


The Marriage Fact is entered


And Person 2 now has 2 spouses. Person 1, now divorced, and Person 4 new marriage


Looking a Person 2's Timeline, it reflects the correct timeline.


Looking at the Relationship tab for Person 2, it also shows the information accurately.
