Dear MYRTLE, in a series of Webinar’s and Google+ Hangouts has been discussing the software program Evidentia. We were to use the Evidentia Software and participate in a Docu-Challenge as outlined here:
I have made three earlier blog posts on this challenge.
Part 4 is to now really review and do our analysis of the claims in this online source.
The first will be to look at William Warren and what this document claims. Going to the Analyze Evidence, from the pull down arrow selecting William Warren and the Marriage Claim
we see the following:
The Assertion is in the left column, we select the Evidence Quality, and if we double click in the Analysis box a mini-editor will appear. Because William Warren would have been present at his marriage, the Evidence Quality I selected as Direct.
There were 4 Assertions to which I added my analysis.
1) William Warren and Sarah Bickle were married under the Banns of marriage on 30 Oct 1833, in the Parrish of Warrington (Werrington), county of Devon in Cronwell, England
NOTE: It’s not clear to me if it’s Warrington or Werrington)
2) William Warren and Sarah Bickle were married by Thomas Waddon Martyn, Curate, in the Parish of Warrington (Werrington), county of Devon in Cronwell, England
3) The marriage record of William Warren and Sarah Bickle was signed by William Warrant, but signed with an “X” by Sarah Bickle, as indicated on the record
4) William Bickle and Daniel Prior were present at the marriage of William Warren and Sarsh Bickle
Once that is saved (Save Proof) the Summary Conclusion was entered.
William Warren and Sarah Bickle were married under the Banns of Marriage on 30 Oct 1833, in the Parish of Warrington (Werrington), county of Devon, in Cronwell, England, by Thomas Waddon Martyn, Curate. William Bickle and Daniel Prior were present at the marriage. Sarah Bickle and Daniel Prior signed the document with an “X”, with the words “the mark of” the persons name, while William Warren and William Bickle signed their name.
Again, the Proof was saved.
Not shown above, is that I added the date at the beginning of the Summary Conclusion, as I have only looked at ONE Source. When (or IF) I find additional sources on their marriage, I would update the Summary Conclusion, based on the new evidence.
Evidentia provides an HTML Summary Report. Selecting Reports, in the pull down menu, the Proof for the Marriage of William Warren, that was just completed, select the Font I want in the report and the Preparer’s Name.
The report is then generated. Due to the length, it will be in 3 screen captures.
This completes the first four (of six) tasks in this Challenge.
