Genealogies & Registers



I realize not everyone has it within their present budget to subscribe to a pay genealogy site to look up BMD records. Besides the Family Search site, which is free, there are other sites and publications that hold BMD records, indexes or genealogies of our ancestors.

As I said in my article titled "No Luck of the Irish" I found my ancestors in one of the Irish Pedigrees published in the early 1900's. I found other family members in their community histories at Our Roots.  A lot of counties, towns, societies or individuals have put together genealogies over the years, and some have published transcripts of registers or indeed copies of the actual records in some cases.



In the UK a guy named William Phillimore Watts Phillimore (brother to Reginald Phillimore Phillimore the artist) of Nottingham who was a genealogist. He founded a publishing business, and therewith he published what are called the Phillimore Registers. One of the links below is for the Catalogue of Phillimore's parish registers. If you see the parish you want, at Internet Archive (archive.org) search [parish name] register + Phillimore. Also for the UK you can google search [county name] + OPC or parish register. Quite a few of them are transcribed online. (OPC is Online Parish Clerk). There is another site for the South Hams of Devon with info PLUS volunteer lookups - click the ask button. They broke down one of my walls for me, and sent me the marriage certificate. More genealogy people helping people.  Wonderful!!

Ontario is a difficult place to find records for.  Luckily there are several volumes published of "Papers and records - Ontario Historical Society" which hold a lot of birth and marriage records, and include other interesting information. That link is below as well. Check the index of each volume and some random pages, as not all registers are under a heading "Look here for registers!!" I have also provided the links to BMD of the other provinces.

I have also found for you some books with records for the USA, including some early Quaker records. You can find more Quaker records by searching at archive.org using the keywords quaker (or friends) + records.

Serendipity Sunday - Trick or Treason




Every movie buff knows of the swashbuckling Australian actor that played in Captain Blood, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Sun Also Rises and Sea Hawk to name a few. Errol Flynn played opposite all the great actresses of the day, including my favourite, Bette Davis in The Sisters. We all know that this dashing young man was the matinee idol of the late 30's and through the 40's... but did you know he was investigated by the FBI for Treason??

Released under the Freedom of Information Act is this detailed collection in PDF form of FBI documents, with some blocks of writing blacked out.

You can read this article about it in The New Statesman and this one at the blog Facts and Falsehoods. I am sure there are also others online.

What do you think really happened?

Books We Own




Another great example of people helping people in the world of genealogy!

While researching an ancestor you might have come across a reference to books that may contain information for that person.  Your library doesn’t have that book, and it is not online.  What to do?

I have asked a couple of volunteers at a website called Books We Own to look things up for me with great results. They will even copy the relevant pages and email them to you. Visit their site and browse through their “Library”.  Everything is categorized by theme or country, then by city or county or state.  If they get notice, they note when a book becomes digitized so you can look yourself. 

Read their SEARCH TIPS carefully to ensure a quick and proper response, and keep in mind these are volunteers that have a life.

They also have a list of genealogies by Surname.

If you have a rare book containing people’s names, maps or other info that may be valuable to genealogists, consider adding your book and look-up service to the site.

United Empire Loyalists




drawing by C.W. JEFFERYS

The United Empire Loyalists are American colonists who stayed loyal to the British Crown during the American Revolution (1775 - 1783) and came to settle n Canada. I have a relative who has been searching for the Loyalist in our tree ever since she read mention of one in my great-grand aunt's papers.


QUOTE from Wikipedia: Realising the importance of some type of recognition, on November 9, 1789, Lord Dorchester, the governor of Quebec and Governor General of British North America, declared "that it was his Wish to put the mark of Honour upon the Families who had adhered to the Unity of the Empire". As a result of Dorchester's statement, the printed militia rolls carried the notation:

"Those Loyalists who have adhered to the Unity of the Empire, and joined the Royal Standard before the Treaty of Separation in the year 1783, and all their Children and their Descendants by either sex, are to be distinguished by the following Capitals, affixed to their names: U.E. Alluding to their great principle The Unity of the Empire."

That means that if you are descended from a Loyalist you can use the letters U.E. after your name, just as a doctor uses M.D. It is said to be the only honorific in Canada that is hereditary.  Also you can use the Loyalist coronet in your coat of arms.
                                               Military Coronet           Civil Coronet


Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy Blog was the inspiration for this article, giving you tips on finding a Loyalist ancestor in your tree. She reminds us that if you don't find your ancestor on one list, look on others.

No Luck of the Irish




Take a good look at the above photo - that is the Dublin Four Courts building housing the Public Records Office, going up in flames at the Battle of Dublin, 1922. That is part of the reason there are few BMD records for Ireland and why you have no luck finding a trace of your Irish ancestors.  So if your family came from Ireland, you will have to think differently and search out alternate records.

My grandfather was estranged from his family so we didn't know anything about our Irish Seale ancestors. When I started researching that family line and discovered there were no records.... I felt double gypped! But I am determined! I posted queries on every genealogy board out there. Finally, after a few years and more people were getting into genealogy I got replies. Two of them!  One was from a distant cousin also descended from my 2nd great-grandfather John Seale of Queen's County Ireland, and the other was from a person in Australia who mentioned a Seale pedigree that was floating around the internet somewhere. So off I went, using every searching skill I could muster, trying to find that pedigree. And I did.  Along with a few others for which there are links below.


The next challenge was going to be to connect this pedigree with my family in Kingston, Ontario. After sitting on it a while, I received a message from a fifth cousin whose relative had gone to Ireland and found parish records at the church. The connection was made. I have the luck of the Irish! Please let it hold true for my other Irish families!

Follow the Irish Genealogy News Blog for updates on available new records.


Hopefully you can find your Irish ancestors mentioned in some of the links I have gathered for you and set out below.

Serendipity Sunday - Making a list, checking it twice....



While I was searching for information and links for WWI I was taken to the Mocavo blog post about WWI diaries. Just what I was looking for! But on the same page was a post about this broadside from Library of Harvard University. It is called the Eleventh Blacklist and was printed in the year 1706, consisting of a list of prostitutes, drunks and pick-pockets in the London area. The abbreviations used are at the bottom of the page.
If your ancestor is on the list, you sure have some colourful characters on your tree! 



Houghton Library



Click on the image to go to the Houghton Library page. While there visit their Archive to see some pretty awesome photographs and illustrations. Then change month at top menu.

Below are some links to a couple of other sites that have images or stories of some "unsavory characters"!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!





While researching my Tait family I came across a reference to an announcement of one of the daughters' wedding in the newspaper for Bath, Somerset. I only have the one family that was in Bath for one generation from Scotland then immigrated to Canada, so I don't have a subscription for that set of British Newspapers. I asked in a group and a kind person offered to look it up for me and she found that article and two others.  These are the two stories:

On the 1st of May, a beautiful spring day in 1901, Alice Tait and her brother Andrew went boating on the Avon River with some friends, starting in the morning at Maynard’s Boating Station and going upriver past Bathampton to Warleigh. They spent the day there and headed back to the Boating Station around 6:40 in the evening. Alice was in a boat with Mr Roberts, and Mr and Mrs Pope who got off the boat at Bathampton and walked home. They waited for the other boat holding Mary Davidson and her sister, Mr Cottle and Andrew Tait. They passed under the bridge and Andrew’s boat got too close to the weirs and tipped over, the misses Davidson screaming for help. Mr Robert jumped out of his boat to help the girls, and Alice also got out of her boat and ran for help, then returned and jumped back in the river to help her brother Andrew, who was having trouble against the unusually strong currents. Mr Robert couldn't save Miss Mary Davidson and she drowned in the water. There was a coroner’s inquest the next day at which Alice had to testify. Andrew was seriously ill for a while but slowly recovered.

Alice and Andrew didn’t know while they were going through their ordeal on the Avon River that their father Andrew Smith Tait had a stroke and died not long after they left the house that morning.




Besides birth, wedding and death announcements, also look for bankruptcies, gossip columns (Mrs Jane Smith is getting a visit from her niece Miss Eliza Jones from England), probate announcements (to notify creditors), ship arrival and departure notices, unclaimed mail, society meetings, estate auctions, etc.  

You may find some archives of local newspapers in city libraries, universities or historical societies. Below are some links to newspaper archives, and some collections may overlap but better to have more than to miss some.

Tools for Genealogy Research






There seem to be quite a few beginners to Genealogy reading my articles, so today I am giving MY take on Genealogy and will give you some tools to help you in your research. There may even be some to help the seasoned genealogist.... we are learning something new every day.
Genealogy is like having a sail boat – you have to throw money at it. Eventually.  But first there are lots of ways you can search for free....  enough to get you started and HOOKED!
The first place to check for records is at Family Search.  There is a wealth of information there, not just records. Click on Search and at the bottom left, click on the Country of your ancestors and a list will come up of all the relevant records they hold. Take a tour of the site, especially their Learning Center. They also have Family History Centers all over the world where you can go for help through classes, inter-loan, and internet access to pay sites. I have one down the road from me, and you an go to their site to find one near you. They also have an online chat to assist you.

Search for Online Parish Clerks (OPC).  Many counties in England have sites where the records for the churches in their county have been transcribed and give more information than the indexes.  Once you know you have the right ancestor you can order a certificate if you want, without wondering if you are wasting your money.

You can use Social Media to get further in your research.  There are FaceBook groups for just about every country or place, and more popping up all the time. You don't have to post your latest photos or take about who's doing what etc. Set up an account and post a couple of photos and make a couple of posts about the weather or something, and I'll tell you why.  Administrators of groups get requests to join daily, and some are scam.  You can mostly tell the scammers, because they have little to nothing on their FB page.  I always check what groups they belong to and if they are not apropos, I ignore the person. The members of these groups are quite knowledgeable and love to help, or point you in the right direction. 

And I don't mean going on a Facebook genealogy group and asking people to find all the records for you, because then YOU are not doing genealogy, they are doing it for you. The same holds for trying to “help” people – it is better to give them the resources and let them have that Eureka moment for themselves, rather than say here, I found the records for you. That said, many of these groups have posted files of records to help you search. To me, the thrill is in the hunt, tracking down that bit of information that, when you find it…. the dam breaks and a whole flood of ancestors come pouring through!  It is amazing!
You can download the PDF of Genealogy on Facebook here.
 
Another helpful tool is Webinars. Knowledgeable people have put together free webinars on all subjects of genealogy to help you in your research.  Did I mention they are free? I have watched many that have helped me, like the one I recently saw on Tax Records that gave me inspiration for yesterday's article. Check out what webinars are coming up and sign up for those that interest you. Some are still free to watch for a week or so after the event, so check their archived webinars too. Also follow free blogs like mine, everyone writes about something different.
 

 
There are a plethora of forms available online that are a great way to keep track of who, what and where you are searching so you don’t waste your time and money. I learned that the hard way. Even if you have unlimited searches at pay sites, the forms are a valuable tool. Being organized and having a plan will save you time and money in the long run. The same holds if you are visiting archives, libraries and research centers. Remember to keep track of your Sources.

I can’t travel to different locations at this time (hopefully some day) so I myself have had to rely on people from time to time, at home and abroad. That is frustrating for me, being a do-it-myself kinda person. But you gotta do what you gotta do! I have found most people to be helpful and generous with their time.  I have written to libraries across the country for newspaper obituaries, the Grey Nuns for information on one of my husband’s aunts, the RCMP Archives for service information on my husband’s father, countless cemeteries (one even sent their janitor out to take photos of the graves for me!!)… and all were generous enough to give freely of their time, for which I am forever grateful. Here too, keep track of all the people you write to asking for information, as it may be a while before they can get back to you.

Here below I will give you some links to other tools to help you on your genealogical journey.  They vary from reading ancient handwriting to figuring out relationships, and backtracking to find an approximate birthdate when a death records gives you a precise age, which some do. There is also a place called Books We Own (I think I have mentioned it before).  If you hear about or see reference to your ancestor's name in a book, you can go to this site and ask someone that owns that book to look it up for you. Then decide if you want to borrow it or buy it.

Just because someone else in your family is researching, doesn't mean you can't too.  Two heads are better than one, four eyes are better than two! Remember too, there comes a time when you have to get off the computer and out of your chair and Go There!

May your journey to the past be as revealing and exciting as it can be frustrating.

The Taxman Cometh




1539 Painting by Jan Massys titled “de Beim Steuereinehmer” or At the tax collector


There have been wars, rebellions and riots over taxes forever, notably the Guelders War, the Whiskey Rebellion, the Boston Tea Party, and the India Salt Tax Protests. Historically the government collected taxes to pay for war and improvements to their environment, like roads, water supply and utilities, and the running of the government. Through the ages there have been taxes levied on different things, not just income and land. There has been a carriage tax, hearth tax (fireplace or stove), horse tax, window tax, tax on watches and clocks, lottery tickets and billiard tables, etc. And.... don't forget the Death tax. There have also been taxes on people, notably taxes on slaves, and a head tax on Jews and Chinese immigrants.

As prescribed in Exodus (30:11-16) Jewish law imposed a poll tax of half-shekel, payable by every man above the age of twenty (“the rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less”)

Special Taxes were levied for things like building a gaol (jail) or a dam etc. You have your Federal Tax, your State or Provincial Tax, your County Tax, and your Town or Municipal Tax. They all need your tax dollars. Look for digests of statutes and laws for different counties or states to see what was taxed and what the rates were. Being a tax collector (or tacks collector) was not a popular profession, although some seemed to relish their job.



Tax records will hold valuable information for researching your ancestor.  In the UK Tithe records, if your ancestor didn't own land, he may still be listed as the renter of that land. Personal income tax records are NOT public, but you will find records for land tax, poll tax, hearth tax, etc. Also look up records of old castles and plantations.

Censuses were often used for tax purposes, so don't trust all the dollar amounts you see on census records. The 1871 Census of Canada had other schedules you don't see on Ancestry, but they are available to view (browse only) at the LAC website. There is a help page to give you tips on searching. Here you will find nominal deaths in past year, number of dwellings owned, number of carriages and horses not on a farm, etc.
