2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 4 REVISED

February 19, 2013

An update to this blog post:  2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 4 Marriage Summary Conclusion

Following the comments on the previous blog posts, a couple of Google+ Hangouts On Air with DearMYRTLE, active conversation between end users and the developer of Evidentia, an update was issued to the program.

The only change I made to the data in my Evidentia file was to update the Summary of Findings or the Summary Conclusion for the data presented.

I dated the first summary then appended the Summary Conclusion and created the Genelogical Proof Report, as seen in the following screens:

Summary of Findings:

Evidentia-3-02

Itemized Research Findings:

Assertion 1: (Assertion about the Marriage of William Warren and Sarah Bickle)

Evidentia-3-03

Itemized Research Findings:

Assertion 2: (probably not really required, but may be important information after other information is found – who the couple were married by)

Evidentia-3-04

Itemized Research Findings:

Assertion 3: (noting that Sarah Bickle signed the record with an “X”)

Evidentia-3-05

Itemized Research Findings:

Assertion 4: (noting the two witnesses, and that Daniel Prior also signed the record with an “X”)

Evidentia-3-06

Recommendations for Continuing and End Notes:

As noted earlier in the blog on this Docu-Challenge, I had questions about the spelling of the town. The Recommendations for Continuing is a note, within Evidentia, for me to follow up on this issue and to find out more about this Church.

Since this report is generated in my browser, I copied and pasted the report for easier reading.

February 12, 2013

Part of Dear MYRTLE’s 2013 Docu-Challenge #1, ( 2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry ) was to generate a Summary Report about William Warren.

So far, the 4 assertions on the Marriage Claim from this record has been reviewed, and the 1 assertion for the residence has not been reviewed. I had entered that William Warren lived in the area in Warrington (Werrington). With the spelling of the location in question, I will do further research on that, as attempt to locate another source for William before I complete the review of his residence.

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 4 Marriage Summary Conclusion

February 12, 2013
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:
2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry

I have made three earlier blog posts on this challenge.

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 1 Data Entry

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 2 First Step in Analysis

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 3 Revisit Source

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

2013-DocuChallenge-1_13

we see the following:

2013-DocuChallenge-1_14

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.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_15

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

2013-DocuChallenge-1_16

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.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_17

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.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_18

The report is then generated. Due to the length, it will be in 3 screen captures.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_19

2013-DocuChallenge-1_20

2013-DocuChallenge-1_21

This completes the first four (of six) tasks in this Challenge.


2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 3 Revisit Source

February 12, 2013

Posted earlier the data entry phase and the first step in the analysis phase of Dear MYRTLEs 2013 Docu-Challenge #1

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 2 First Step in Analysis

Links on the above blog post will take you to earlier blog posts on Evidentia.

During my Data Entry phase, I had remembered two entries that were not listed in Part 2. Those entries were the “witnesses” to the marriage. So, I went back to my source to take another look.

Here is a screen capture of the heading of the page, to show Werrington vs Warrington for the location.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_09

Here is the top of the Digital Image

2013-DocuChallenge-1_12

I am not a handwriting expert, but that looks like Warrington.

This information has already been entered into Evidentia. But, back to the review of the No. 107 entry on that page is this information.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_10

In the Prefence of:

Here is one clue that may be helpful in the future, and that is the first witness of William Bickle. Is this a brother, father, or another family member? We are still in the data entry mode, and the beginning of the data analysis. Also, the 2nd witness is that of Daniel Prior, who, like Sarah Bickle used the “X”, with the name entered as “the mark of ….”. This same gentlemen was also a witness on No. 108, again as a witness to a December 1833 wedding.

I added these two new pieces of information to my file in Evidentia, and added the Subject and Claim Type. I created a Claim Type of Witness for Daniel, and added the Parent Claim Type for William Bickle. This entry may have to be changed later, after more data is found in other sources.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_11

All this is trying to point out, is re-check your source or sources as you begin the Analysis of the Evidence that is found.


2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 2 First Step in Analysis

February 11, 2013

Earlier, I posted:

2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 1 Data Entry

Dear MYRTLE posted a blog with a Challenge for users of Evidentia, an Evidenced based software program.

http://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2013/02/2013-docu-challenge-1-english-parish.html

The data from this source has been entered. The next step is the beginning of the Evaluation of the data. For Evidentia to help us, be assign “Subjects” and “Claim Types” for the Entries that were done in the earlier step.

For example, the first Claim is that William Warren was from “this parish”. So that I didn’t have to remember what “this parish” (actually parifh) was, I entered “(Warrington)” and consider this claim to be where he resided. That may be a stretch but I am guessing that he lived close to this Parish. We may find in other sources that to be true or not true, but that is how I read this claim.

Double clicking in the Subject field on the Catelogue Claim menu a window opens where the Subject Name and Claim Type is entered.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_04

This is the first time that I am using this name, I enter William Warren in the Subject Name, and start to enter Residence, and Residence appears.

The next time I want to use that SAME name, as I believe that it is the same person, I will use the pull down menu on the Right of the Subject Name field.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_05

However, IF I forget, and type in the name twice, I can merge the two entries by going to the Evidentia List Manager, select the first time the name appears, click on Merge, then select the 2nd entry, and the Merge again. This will merge the Subject keeping any claims together.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_07

 

Back to the Subject / Claim Type, I entered Sarah Bickle (first time use) and Residence, as was done for William.

The next entry was a Marriage Claim for both of them. William was selected first, added Marriage, then at the bottom of that window selected New Claim, select Sarah and Marriage again. The Claim contained the date of marriage.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_06

Then I entered Thomas Waddon Martya, Curate and the Marriage Claim, in that he performed the marriage. In reality, I also put William and Sarah in the same entry as Thomas. The reason will become clearer when further evaluation is done.

At this point, each of the claim from the Data Entry step has a Subject (person) and an event.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_08

Further analysis to follow.


2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry–Part 1 Data Entry

February 10, 2013

Dear MYRTLE posted a blog with a Challenge for users of Evidentia, an Evidenced based software program.

http://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2013/02/2013-docu-challenge-1-english-parish.html

I posted some information about Evidentia here:

Technology Tuesday–Evidentia

and

Evidentia–Create a new Citation Template

One of the learning’s of the use of Evidentia for me, was to find a document (source), cite the source, then transcribe the information or Claims from that document. This is the first step that I did to capture the information provided in the source.

The instructions were to go to FamilySearch.org and locate the Parish Records for the Parish of Warrington, Devonshire County, Cronwall, England and locate the marriage record for William Warren and Sarah Bickle.

One conflicting bit of information is that Family Search spelled the Parish, in text, as Werrington. The image reads Warrington.

The image is HERE

I took the top of that page and included that in the Source information.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_01

 

Source created, now to the Citation.

2013-DocuChallenge-1_02

The Catalogue Claims is selected and since there is a lot of information (claims) on that image, I select “Open the always-on-top mini-editor. For me, this helps me to separate the Data Entry piece of this process from the beginning of the Data Analysis. That 3rd ICON will bring up a small mini-editor and it will be on the top of what ever image or information that you are transcribing.

 

2013-DocuChallenge-1_03

That Always-On-Top is in the upper left of that screen. I entered “William Warren of this Parifh” (as spelled on the image), Sarah Bickle of this Parifh”.

William Warran and Sarah Bickle were married in this Church by Banns with Confent of this thirthith Day of October in the year One thoufand eight hundred and thirty three.

By me Thomas Wadden Martyn Curate

This Marriage was foleminized between us William Warren / X (the mark of Sarah Bickle)

In the Prefence of William Bickle / X (the mark of Daniel Prior

No. 107

So, the data entry is complete. Data analysis of this information will follow. BUT some observations.

The word “curate” and the persons name wasn’t the clearest in No. 107, but is clearer above in No. 106.

Sarah Bickle, apparently couldn’t write nor could Daniel Prior and have an “X” in their space, but someone wrote in their name. In No. 108, Daniel Prior is also listed, again with an “X”.

Data entry of 5 claims were recorded from this image. Analysis to follow


Evidentia–Create a new Citation Template

February 3, 2013

During Dear MYRTLE’s Google+ Hangout On Air yesterday (02/02/2013) we discovered that there wasn’t a Citation Template for a Digital Image, online, from Ancestry, as an example.

Dear MYRTLE has a blog post on the Homework assignment and this Hangout On Air.

http://blog.dearmyrtle.com/2013/02/evidentia-homework-hangout-is-live-on.html

You can watch the Hangout from the blog.

I was up for the challenge to create a 1940 Source Template as part of the homework.

In Evidentia, in the Document a Source tab, I selected the ICON to the right of the Source Listing.

Evidentia-2-03

When the Citation Template list appeared, scrolling down the list, 1940 Microfilm was listed, but that isn’t what I was looking at. I had an Image from Ancestry.com.

Evidentia-2-04

That last Digital Image was 1870

Evidentia-2-05

The right side of the screen shows the “fields”, in brackets, that the template used for the citation. I did a Screen Capture of that window, to see what “fields” were used in 1870. HOWEVER, a 1940 Census Citation has other fields as well. So, I looked at and printed the 1940 Microfilm Citation Template.

Evidentia-2-06

The fields are different. So the ‘trick’ is to create a NEW Citation Template that combines these two templates.

At the bottom of this screen (pop up window) is a “new” button.

Evidentia-2-07

Which brought up this screen.

Evidentia-2-16

So, it’s a matter of filling in the fields. However, there are some tricks to remember. The biggest is what are Fields and what is text to go into the Citation Template.

For the Category, Census – US

For the Short Title I entered 1940 U.S. Census – Digital Image

Now for the fun part and a little bit of playing around so that I understood what was going on. What I learned:

Bracket indicates a field that will be presented to ‘fill in the blanks’.

The Source Listing Template I entered:

[State], [County], County. 1940 U.S. census, population schedule. Digital Images. [Site Name]. [URL]: [Created Year]

The fields are STATE, COUNTY, SITE NAME, URL, and CREATED YEAR. The rest is text.

The First Listing Template is.

1940 U.S. census. [County] county, [State], population schedule, [City], enumeration district (ED) [Enumeration District] p. [Page #]. household [Household #], [Person of Interest]; lines [Line Numbers]; digital image, ([Site Name]); accessed [Access Date]: citing National Archives and Records Administration microfilm Roll: [File #]_[Roll #].

The fields are COUNTY, STATE, CITY, ENUMERATION DISTRICT, PAGE #, HOUSEHOLD #, PERSON OF INTEREST, LINE NUMBERS, SITE NAME, ACCESS DATE, FILE #, and ROLL #

As above, the rest is text. Note that the Site Name is entered as ([Site Name]). So, the data entry will be the site name, but will be displayed (Site name) or [Ancestry.com)

Since the Microfilm template showed the Enumeration began on April 1, 1940, I entered that as a reminder to me, for this new template.

Evidentia-2-17

The new Template has been created, AFTER it is saved.

Now, when I select that Citation Template, this is the Data Entry Screen that I will use for that image.

Evidentia-2-18

As you fill in the fields, the text on the right will be updated.
