FTM2014 - Media, Sources, Facts

blog reader asked what should be linked to a record, such as a Census Record. This short video will try to explain that a Media File, like a Census Record is linked to a Citation. I think of the Media file or image as supporting information for the Citation. That Citation is then linked to ALL of the Facts, or information that I gathered from that Citation.

Family Book Creator - Second Book

This is a follow up on using the Family Book Creator plug-in for FTM2014.

On facebook, a cousin told me her 7 year old daughter wanted to know about "where she came from" and who her Ancestors were. So, I wanted to put this plug in to real use and to be able to create a book that a 7 year old might be interested in.

In this video, I spend a few more minutes with some of the options. What I have focused on, is how you can EDIT a book, created with this plug in, to make adjustments to the content of the book that was created.





This book will not have Footnotes, Endnotes, nor a lot of detail on the person, but will have a Bibliography, Index of Places, and Index of People AND colored pictures that are in my family file.

I should also mention, that it was another "out of the box" book. I did not look at the User manual, nor have I fine tuned the book based on the developers documentation. Just trying to see how difficult it would be for me to just create and now edit the book.

FTM2014 - Place Names - Person Migration Path

I try to keep my Places in the proper format to take advantage of the Place Name Authority. The normal use of the Places Workspace is to help make consistent the location. (list by Place). There is a second way to use the Places Workspace, that is my Person. You can track a person based on the locations where they had an event (Fact).

This is an example of a Civil War Unit, where the dates and places of the battles they were involved in were documented.

FTM2014 - How to Update your Ancestry Member Tree

This is my End of Day Routine, or the routine that I follow when I have worked on my file long enough where I don't want to have to re-do my work and to update my Ancestry Member Tree.

This is a real file so the length of the video is a little long (13:41) but I have some comments about what is going on, as I understand it.
