While adding the county in England, many of my relatives come from Bedfordshire county, however all I can find, and what I have added is Bedford, which is the county town. Should I continue to use Bedford, or would it be possible to have the county Bedfordshire added ?
I have always liked the fact that you supply us with an age at death, is there a way that could be done for marriages? I am constantly amazed at how many women lied about their age on marriage records. (and some men).
I saw someone post this in a Facebook group and thought I'd offer it here to see if anyone is interested. The idea is to have a way to track a list of documents (birth certificates, death certs, censuses, military records, wills, etc) that you want to track down for your people, and to have a way to cross-check your work. So there would be a way for you to define the list of documents you want to track, and then a way to check off when they are acquired... and a way to indicate that you've exhausted all options, and decided it doesn't exist... and a way to search/filter on who's left with documents not yet found.
I would think that checking the options would be a manual process (?), not linked into actual attachments or links, as some may be offline paper files you have, or something online that you may not want to or be able to link to.
Something like this. Suggestions & comments welcome!
This way we can find more records and transfer them to ancestry.com. I started an ancestry family tree but can't transfer them back and forth very easily.. It would be very helpful to be able to transfer the people into ancestry. Not sure if this is already possible, but it would be a very helpful functionality to have.
Among our branch's family members are those that are legally adopted. They are treated as any natural born family member. Then enters those that have identified their "natural parents", posing the problem of showing multiple parents. What is the proper way to record these ancestoral ties?
