Evidentia – Assigning Claim to Subject

My previous blog post:

Entering first Source into Evidentia

As I continue to work with Evidentia, I first reviewed:

Evidentia – Getting Started – Part 3

In the previous blog post, I had an Claim for Francis Worthington and Sarah Byrom (not seen below) as parents of John Worthington. I had classified that claim as Secondary. Hovering the cursor in that 3rd column will explain to “Double-click to open Attach Subject screen”.

Evdentia-C-03

Then double clicked in the Assign Subject field which will bring up this screen.

Evdentia-C-01

In the Claim Type pull down menu, I select Child[ren] and selected John Worthington (2) from the menu, because I had already entered him into this database previously. If the name wasn’t there, it can be added. A note about the (2) following his name shortly. It is merely to help me to know which John Worthington I am talking about. When his name is selected, there will be a number in the “Ref No” field.

There will be a later blog post to show how this report was created, but the text in the red box is what Is important. It says “asserts that Francis Worthington and Sarah Byrom was the parents of John Worthington”.

Evdentia-C-02

More on that later.

To show the Claim Type Screen, I selected the claim of Francis Worthington’s death. The pull down menu will provide a series of the “normal” facts or claims that we might find.

Evdentia-C-04

Same with the Name, the pull down menu will allow us to Select the right person. Only enter an individual name one time. As before, I have a (4) by Francis. Will cover that shortly.

Evdentia-C-05

In the List Manager screen is where those ID’s can be entered. Clicking on List Manager on the left will bring up the Subject Screen. On this screen is where the sex of the person can be added AND the Reference Number (Ref. No.).

Evdentia-C-06

For this file, I am selecting Charles Worthington (born posthumously) in 1701 as the #1 person. His father, John, will be 2, his mother will be 3. But, in the example above, there is another Charles Worthington. He was born and died prior to Charles Worthington (1), and was the 5th Child of John and Sarah Worthington, so his Ref No is 2e. That way I can tell the difference between the two Charles’.

Charles has 5 siblings. So, I as a letter after the father’s number, or 2a. As it turns out, 2a is John Worthington, the son.

Sarah Howard remarried, so I added 3a has is Reference Number.

John Worthington (2) is my primary person, so Francis Worthington will be 2×2 or 4 and Sarah Byrom will be 4 + 1 or 5. The usual Father being double of the persons number and the Mother the father’s number plus 1.

I have chosen to add a letter following the father’s number for the children. But you may want to define your own numbering system.

As before, more details on how to generate this report will come later. But this clearly shows the difference in people and their claims, Like John Worthington (2) and John Worthington (2a).

Evdentia-C-07

Below are all of the Claims that were included in that Citation.

Evdentia-C-08

So, the Data has been Entered, and the Claims from the Source have been assigned to a Subject. As the Video mentions, the subject does not have to be a person. For my purposes, at least at this point, the subject will be people.
