C is for Census



For each person in my database I add every census that they appear in.  The census information is put in a Census Event/Fact in the head of household's Event/Fact area and then is shared to each person in that Census.  The image of the Census page is downloaded to my computer and saved, for example, as         George Washington Hunter(1260) -- 1910 Census and it is in the Hunter surname folder; it is also attached to the Census event in Legacy.


This image shows the Census' in George Washington Hunter's Individual Information screen marked
with a green arrow.  The icons in the green circle show that the Event/Fact is
shared, sourced, and has an image attached.

The Census information was transcribed in the notes section of the Census Event/Fact for each
person in the household listed on the Census.

In Florence Lewis Hunter's Individual Information screen you can see the Census Event/Fact,
marked with the green arrow, in her Event/Facts section.  The blue arrow means that it was shared and the
Event/Fact title shows that it is a Census and her role is Wife.

This is Willard Milton Hunter and in his Event/Fact section you can see that the Census,
marked with a green arrow,  was shared with him and his role is Son.

Using shared Event/Facts saves me a lot of time when adding information to my database.  Not all of my Census information is done like this because it was an added feature after I started using Legacy.  When I come across an individual that does not have all of their Census information done with shared events I will fix it at that time.  I tagged everyone in my database on tag #9 and then as the Census information is fixed and all of their sources have been added I will untag them from #9.

What does D have for us tomorrow...check back to find out!

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.

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

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!!
