B is for Blog Posts


I blog about my ancestors but how do I keep track of what I've posted without searching my blog?

Here's what I do : I did a post on January 19, 2014 about my Third Great Grandfather Edward C. Lewis.  I then selected my post and did a print to PDF and saved it in my Genealogy notebook under the Lewis surname.  Then I went to Edward in Legacy and attached the PDF to the Blog Event/Fact that I created.




This is Edward's information.

Edwards Individual Information screen.  Under the Event/Fact you see an
Event/Fact Blog Post {where the green arrow is}.

This is what the Event/Fact looks like.  It includes the name of the
Blog and the date it was posted.
You can add an image by clicking on the image icon
{the icon with the green box around it}.

Select add media and then document.  Select the document you want
linked to your Event/Fact.

Now when I want to see what I have already posted about Edward on my blog I just have to go to his Blog Post Event/Fact and to the linked document and I don't have to search my entire blog looking to see what I have.  And this is a great backup of your blog posts.

I wonder what the letter C will bring us tomorrow??

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.

OneNote | A Look Inside

I still have a few more notes to move over from Evernote but I am loving OneNote.  I keep to do lists, goals, projects, ideas, genealogy research and so much more in OneNote.  So what does my setup look like?  Lets take a look! {I usually use OneNote 2016 but I have tried the Windows 10 app and it works just as good.} The first screen shot below is OneNote 2016 and the second is from the Windows 10 app.  My first notebook is my task management notebook.  In this notebook I have my Inbox, which is my default section for incoming stuff, calendar and lists.  {Emails that I have sent to OneNote and screen clips go in my Inbox section.} The next notebook is for my blog, and then the Genealogy notebook is for research notes, then I have the GBT notebook which I use for notes and reminders for GeneaBloggersTribe, the Reference notebook is for things that don't belong in one of the other notebooks,  and the last notebook is the Archive. Lets take a closer look at some o

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post
