Citing Ancestry.com Member Trees in Legacy Family Tree

I have been following Russ Worthington's posts at Family Tree Maker User about citing Ancestry.com Member Trees in FTM and I found a way to do the same in Legacy.  A way that works for me at least.

I chose to add a generic source and then from the drop down menu Online database.


The Source List Name is the name that you see in your source list for easy retrieval.  I put **USE THIS ONE** to make it stand out until I get the others cleared out.

I left the fields for author last name, author given name, author suffix, date and agency/creator blank to get the results that I wanted. Click save and move to the detail section.


In the item of interest field I put the name of the Member Tree in quotation marks, family tree by member name, profile for with birth and death information in parenthesis.


My citation now look like:

Footnote/Endnote Citation:
"Public Member Tree," database, Ancestry.com (www.ancestry.com : accessed 6 Apr 2014), "davis /ritter/farver Family Tree" family tree by Sharon Lucille Davis, profile for John McKinney Buckalew (b. Feb 1866 d. 1936). 

Subsequent Citation:
"Public Member Tree," database "davis /ritter/farver Family Tree" family tree by Sharon Lucille Davis, profile for John McKinney Buckalew (b. Feb 1866 d. 1936). 

Bibliography:
"Public Member Tree." Database. Ancestry.com. Ancestry.com. www.ancestry.com.

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!

How I Use Evernote for My Genealogy.

Today I did a Google+ hangout on air about Evernote for Genealogy.   Once I watched the video I saw that I was not a very good cameraman!

Hopefully this will clear up any questions you may have.





How I use Evernote for my genealogy.

I use Evernote to store everything including my genealogy research.
You want to use Evernote in a way that makes sense to you.  Tags, notebooks, no tags or no notebooks; do whatever works the best for you.
Notebooks (the blue box)
Notebooks are sorted alphabetically so if there are notebooks you want at the top of your list you can use ! or @ or ~ in front of your notebook title.  In my image, for example, I have my INBOX notebook with an ! in front to keep this notebook at the top of the list.  I use a ~ to keep my GENEALOGY notebook stacks together.  I have an ARCHIVE notebook and in front of that I put an x to keep it at the bottom of …
