FTM2014 - How to use a Research Log within the program - Update

Earlier today, I did a Video Blog post on Research Notes.

FTM2014 - How to use a Research Log within the program

After I posted it, I realized that I left something, very important out. How did I find or how did a search for that SSDI or 1920 Census Record. My class saw me do it live, but I didn't include the details in that earlier Blog post.

Here is the Research Log from that blog post.


I have the Date and the Source, where I would look at the Source Workspace for details. BUT, how did I get there?


I added that I had followed a Shaky Leaf that was attached to John Wheeling Jones. Now, John wasn't the Head of Household, so I moved to his father, Omar, who was the Head of Household. In that 1920 Census Report, it Claimed that his Mother was born in a State. So, only the Birth State was recorded.

I can go back to that Census Record to see what else was in the Record. Because I always move an Ancestry.com "source" into an Evidence Explained Template, the Citation work is already done.

This is my bread crumb reminding me now I got there.

Teaching folks how to use Family Tree Maker and remembering some basic genealogy skills, I have been trying to determine what works best for me with Research Logs. This is a first attempt at sharing this process to others.

Ancestry Mobile App Update

An update on the Ancestry Mobile App for the IOS operating system. The video is specifically on the iPhone App. I looked at the new App on my iPad and there was only a slight difference. AND I was able to take a picture and attach it to a person in my Ancestry Member Tree.
