Evidentia 3.1 – What about my DNA Cousins

March 19, 2017

So far, I have been talking about Information from the We’re Related APP for building a Possibilities Tree. Why not toss in some DNA Results.

Evidentia-23

I know my side already has some We’re Related entries, maybe this will help Prove some of the APP information.

Created a New Most Recent Common Ancestor Possibilities Tree. In this case, the DNA shows the common ancestors, I will use the male side, as he is already in my APP data.

Evidentia-24

I didn’t have to add my side, as they were already in my database, so just added the two new people.

The Cousin Tracker status completed very quickly, as I added the Source for the DNA Results, recorded the Claims, Evaluated all of the data, so far, and created a Proof Summary

Evidentia-25

This DNA Cousin isn’t on Facebook, so he won’t show up in the APP. The good news is that the DNA screen from Ancestry and the Relationship information from Evidentia are the same. 1st Cousins, once removed.


Review of Cousin Tracker Log

March 19, 2017

One of the things that I have been trying to do at least once a day, is to see how the Cousin Log is doing. I noticed that I had an entry that has “Not started”

Evidentia-2017-03-17_1017-01b

I thought that I had done that relationship. So I pulled up my EXCEL file and recognized that I have two (2) Nathaniel Allens here.

Evidentia-2017-03-17_1017-01a

I had done a Nathaniel and Jonathan Allen relationship, but missed one. When I reviewed the Claims from this source, I had missed that father / son Claim. Here is where including the birth and death year in the display comes in handy.

Evidentia-2017-03-17_1017-03

It was very easy to pick the right Nathaniel Allen when Cataloging the Information.

Evidentia-2017-03-17_1017-02

Reran the Log and it’s resolved, or showing Complete.

Evidentia V3.1–We’Related APP Input – 2

March 18, 2017

In my last blog post on this topic

Evidentia V3.1–We’Related APP Input – 1

I took the data from my EXCEL spreadsheet and entered that information into the Cousin Tracker Log.

I then created a Source for the We’re Related APP and a Citation for the APP Cousin. (again, not going into the details about how to do this)

Evidentia-19

The APP cousin name appears in the Citation. As you may be able to see, there are also 2 other We’re Related APP Cousins in this database. The Citation must tell me which APP Cousin the information came from.

I now Catalogue the data from the Spreadsheet into Evidentia.

The Classification of the Claims or Information Items is done with the pull down menu, and the linking the Claims to the Profile or person is done as usual. The results are seen below.

Evidentia-21

What was really handy is the Mini-Editor that I could put right over the EXCEL Spreadsheet

Evidentia-22

Now the EXCEL information is now in Evidentia for me to evaluate.

Again, this is not a How To blog or blog post, but my initial experience with this new feature.


Evidentia V3.1–We’Related APP Input – 1

March 17, 2017

In Evidentia V3.1 Cousin Research Tracker first try I got us started in this process, now I am going to start a new Cousin Tracker person, from the We’re Related APP.

Evidentia-05

I selected New Cousin and select the Pencil (Edit) ICON to start a New Research Log.

I have recorded the information from the APP on my smart phone and entered it into an EXCEL worksheet.

Evidentia-06

And will enter my side and to my We’re Related Cousin’s side.

Evidentia-07a

I entered the Common Ancestor from my spreadsheet into the MRCA (Most Recent Common Ancestor fields.

Evidentia-08

I entered my name the Select Self field and my APP Cousin’s name in the Select Cousin field. Since these three names are NOT in my database, I enter the name and hit the ENTER Key to add the name to this database.

In that list of names in the spreadsheet, I realized that I have some repeated names. So, I added the Birth and Death Year to the Common Ancestor. Since the APP doesn’t provide those dates in the APP, I don’t have those dates. (I don’t have that information, yet)

In the “Your Side” there is a green + sign and Add Descendant Of and a field will be there to enter names. Each name will have the birth and death year, as provided by the APP.

Here is the completed screen.

Evidentia-09

But, I don’t want reports show this, but it will be helpful when I work a little more with this database.

Once this is Saved, and I close this task, I go to the Manage List ICON and select List Manager.

Evidentia-10

With the list of individuals appears, I select each of my new entries and remove the Dates from the Name as shown on REPORTS field.

Evidentia-11

The previous list of cousins, now looks like this.

Evidentia-13

Here is an example, from my spreadsheet above, as to why I have done the name to include the dates.

Evidentia-12

I can tell that there were two Nathanial Allen’s and will see that it is a Grandfather / Grandson that I am working with through the rest of process.

So far, I have taken the information from the We’re Related APP and have that information into Evidentia.

I probably will not do may detailed blog posts on the use of Evidentia, like creating a Source, Creating a Citation, inputting the Claims and the other steps of Evidentia. I will do several blog posts on findings along the way.


Evidentia V3.1 Cousin Research Tracker first try

March 15, 2017

I recently  posted Evidentia v3.1 Cousin Research Tracker where I introduced the two new features. The Tracker and the Research Log.

After a quick download and installation, I found where I have access to the new feature. This is the “home” screen, or where Evidentia opened for me. I am looking in the upper right corner ICONS.

Evidentia-02

A little closer look at the horizontal lines to the left of the Help Menu

Evidentia-03

This opens Manage List menu.

Evidentia-04

Selecting the Cousin Research Tracker we are presented with:

Evidentia-06

Selecting and existing Cousin Research Log, or create a New One. Will show the New Cousin

Evidentia-07

This looks to me like a great place for the We’re Related APP, where the Common Ancestor would be put into the Most Recent Common Ancestor field.

We then can enter “Your Side” and the “Cousin Side”. I’ll not go into detail here, as I suspect that Ed Thompson will provide us with his continued great documentation and How To Videos.

I do want to point out the “SAVE” ICON (see the arrow), as we need to save our work in this feature. I forgot the first time, and had to redo a couple of entries. My bad, but wanted to share that.

I am going to work on my DNA Entry and my We’re Related entry in the near future.


Evidentia v3.1 Cousin Research Tracker

March 14, 2017

Evidentia-01

OK, that got my attention. a Cousin Tracker.

Please visit the Evidentia Google+ Community for more information and conversation: http://bit.ly/CR_Evidentia_Community

and the Evidentia Blog post

https://evidentiasoftware.com/cousin-research-tracker/

I had to look. The other term for this feature, “Possibility Tree” according to Ed, the developer. A place for me to put “profiles” that are not ready for my database. A place to start to evaluate their documentation, when found, using the power of this genealogy tool to help me prove this profile.

Two projects that I have been working on that this should be able to help. The We’re Related APP and DNA Results.

Downloaded the update, to bring my version up to Version 3.1.

Not only is the Cousin Tracker included by also Cousin Research Logs.

Evidentia-01a

I will publish a couple of blog posts on how I use this update to Evidentia solve these problems.  I have a DNA relationship to prove and a We’re Related relationship to prove or disprove. As it happens, these to “problems” are in one of my direct ancestor lines.

Please visit the Evidentia website using the link in the Right Column of this blog.
