Great Work Everyone on the Worldwide Indexing Event



We sailed right by our goal of 50,000 participants.  Official numbers will be released tomorrow but the image above shows that according to the Facebook Event, we hit about 66,417 indexers.  

I slept last night through the first part of the GeneaSleepOver, but Dear Myrtle was a true genealogy champion and made it through the entire 24 hours awake!  I did my part and arbitrated 2 batches.  I wish I had time to do more, but the kids and other commitments kept me too busy. Everyone should be proud to have contributed to this very worthwhile event!

I conduct genealogy research pretty much every single day, and I use FamilySearch.org pretty much every single day that I conduct genealogy research, so arbitrating when I can is the least I can do. I hope everyone who contributed to the Event will continue to contribute when they can.  We indexed millions of records in 24 hours, but there is still so much to be done! 

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who submitted at least one batch during this Event, we have made history!

Notable collection updates include the 148,960 images from the England, Durham, Diocese of Durham Original Wills, 1650–1857, collection; the 91,952 indexed records from the South Africa, Cape Province, Civil Deaths, 1895–1972, collection; and the 804,247 indexed records and images from U.S., Illinois, Cook County Deaths, 1878–1922, 1959–1994, collection. See the table below for the full list of updates. Search these diverse collections and more than 3.5 billion other records for free at FamilySearch.org.

Searchable historic records are made available on FamilySearch.org through the help of thousands of volunteers from around the world. These volunteers transcribe (index) information from digital copies of handwritten records to make them easily searchable online. More volunteers are needed (particularly those who can read foreign languages) to keep pace with the large number of digital images being published online at FamilySearch.org. Learn more about volunteering to help provide free access to the worldís historic genealogical records online at FamilySearch.org.

FamilySearch is the largest genealogy organization in the world. FamilySearch is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services to learn more about their family history.

Cite Your Sources

No, really.  I mean it.  Cite your sources! 




So, you just found a record that finally states the parents of that elusive ancestor?  Right away, without delay, cite this record as the source of this information in your database. Because you won't remember, you really won't.  You think you will.  We all think we will.  But, when it comes right down to it, we don't.  Sure, it seems so obvious now! Surely, you won't forget something as awesome and wonderful as that juicy bit of data you just found and where you found it.  But you will. Oh yes, you will. We all have.  Been there, done that, have the T-shirt!

But, don't worry! There is a solution to this problem.  We could get a biotech brain implant to store all our memories, especially genealogy sources, in "Johnny Mnemonic" style. No, wait...that's a bit extreme, and not currently available or I'd have one already! What we can really do is to cite our sources.  This means we record in our database the place we found the particular bit of information.

There are all kinds of discussion on the best, most correct, easiest and so on, way to do this.  But in the end, *ANY* source is better than not having one at all.  If, for example, I have a record for my ancestor in the 1850 census, it may very well be ideal to list off a detailed source citation.  This would include where I accessed the census, which page of which census document I viewed, all the data in that record that I viewed, likely including name, relationship to head of household, age, occupation and so on.  I'll be honest here, I am not likely going to do that for every 7th cousin twice removed's wife's 2nd husband's father.  I may do it for direct ancestors or especially troublesome areas in my tree.  But what I do try to do is include at least some source.  Quite likely just a quick "1850 census" or whatever.  Then, later, if someone asks about that person, and why I have that data attached to that person, I can refer back to the 1850 census and see that I listed John Smith as born about 1810 in Massachusetts or whatever because that is what the census document I viewed stated.  

Often, when working in my Ancestry.com tree, I just accept the automatically added citations to the documents I have attached.  This is quick and easy, and would be even better if I used Family Tree Maker, but I don't.

If I am reading your website or blog post about a cousin or ancestor and I see some information about John Smith that I disagree with or question and you have listed even just "1850 US census" somewhere in the write-up, I will likely find that record all on my own, without having to contact you and bother you about something trivial that may indeed seem just as obvious to me when I view that record.    

You see, citing your sources, will save all of us time and energy, and make it simple to defend or further explain the information you have gathered about your family tree. Try it, everyone else is doing it, you know you want to....

Worldwide Indexing Event

On July 2, 2012, a total of 49,025 FamilySearch indexers and arbitrators set the all-time record for the most indexing participants in a single day. Now, on July 20-21, 2014 we are aiming for a new all-time record of 50,000 participants in a single day.

Everyone wants more records available for the genealogy research.  The answers to your brick wall may very well be sitting in a set of records that haven't been indexed yet.  Watch this video to get an idea of what indexing can do:



I have to say that today was the first time I viewed that video and it's amazing! The one below explains better, but the one above really captures the emotions of researchers better.  Indexing is easy and quick to get started in.  And it helps everyone.  Really, everyone.  Records indexed are available free at Familysearch.org, where researchers worldwide can access them from home 24/7.  FamilySearch is doing an amazing job scanning records and making them available, but there is so many record collections that need indexing already, and the list is growing rapidly as their scanning pace is exceeding the indexing pace.



The goal is to have 50,000 indexers and arbitrators to do at least ONE batch of records in the 24 hour period of the challenge. We can do this!!! 

I will be participating in this of course! I still fondly remember helping index and arbitrate the 1940 census.   I will probably be doing a combination of indexing and arbitrating, and may work on more than one project. 

It is probably a good idea to have some batches downloaded before tomorrow, as the servers may be overwhelmed.

DearMyrtle is having a GeneaSleepover to support this event. I am looking forward to it!  Apparently, we will be doing 15 min of indexing and 45 minutes of genealogy fun! For 24 whole hours.  

I should also mention that your indexing can double as your 3-2-1-Cite July Challenge as well.

If you are new to indexing, you can go here.

You can join the Facebook Event here.

I Attended My First Ever Google Hangout on Air

WikiTree was hosting a Hangout-on-Air Peter J Roberts.  Since I haven't yet checked out a Google Hangout-on-Air, and I love the topic (genetic genealogy) I figured I would attend.

I can't really say I learned anything new but I have been around the genetic genealogy block a time or two.  



For others who missed it, and aren't willing to watch it even though I so thoughtfully embedded it above here are a few highlights:

Everyone can benefit from autosomal testing.  Test your parents, your grandparents, your siblings, your cousins, everyone you can.

Share your ancestral data and DNA data to get good results. He uses the example of why buy eyeglasses and then not wear them. 

A few of my own thoughts (and the answers to questions I would have given)

I also have no idea why people are buying DNA kits which have pretty much no other use other than genealogy and then not sharing their data and drawing conclusions from the results.  

Q. How many people/what % of people need to be tested for genetic genealogy to really work?

A. We are already there.  The issue now, I find, is now more how to deal with so much data. Still, I think the answer really is "it depends".  The % of people needed to get good results depends on what you consider good results, and which type of test you are asking about.  

For Y-DNA testing, ideally, I would love to see at least 2 testers from each branch at a 111 markers tested. For mtDNA not very many people need to be tested. If you have a family of say mother, father and 5 children, I would say ideally, you would test all 7  autosomal DNA, and the father and either the mother or any of the 5 children for mtDNA, and the father or one male child for the Y-DNA.  If there is another family, say the brother of the father and his wife and 5 children, ideally, I would test all 7 autosomal DNA, no need really to do the Y at all, since the autosomal will confirm he is full brother to the first man and therefore will have the same results, no need to do the mtDNA on the man since, again, the autosomal will confirm full siblings, and his mtDNA would be the same, but that mother or one of her children would want a mtDNA test. And so on.
