Episode 63 Transcript

Welcome to the Genealogy News from Geneatopia

I’m Patty Roy, also known as Dinah Larkham in Second Life.

Today is Wednesday, June 17, 2015 and this is Episode 63.

Ancestry’s new website is here. It’s been in beta since February and thousands of ancestry members have been using the new site providing Ancestry with feedback. The new website makes it easier to tell your family story. Some of the new features are enhanced storytelling, streamlined facts view, historical insights, and some other new elements.

Most of these new features can be found on the person page for an ancestor in your family tree. LifeStory is where you can tell the story of a particular person. It includes Historical Insights. This is meant to list historical events that may have occurred where your ancestor was located.

LifeStory uses events, sources, and relationships to help you build a story of your ancestor. This helps you create a time-based narrative about your ancestor.

The streamlined facts also pertain to a person in your family tree. They are things that you have entered. Now you will see listed the sources for each fact and you will see all the other family members and the relationship to that person you are looking at.

There is a new gallery area to help you organize media more efficiently. Here is where you’ll find images you’ve uploaded and copies of record images you found on Ancestry.

The new website is what is called responsive. This means that it will adjust according to the size of a phone, tablet, or desktop computer.

Right now you have the choice of using the old version of the website or checking out the new version. And of course eventually you will only have access to the new site, the old site will be going away in a few months. In order to get to the new website you click on “New Ancestry” which is found under your username on the MyAccount menu.

Currently this new website is only available in the United States. Other countries will get access to the new website in a few months.

If you have Virginia ancestors, you’ll be happy to know that Ancestry has added a lot of vital records for Virginia. The birth records cover the years from 1864 to 1999. There are images of birth records for the years 1864 to 1913. Virginia births are closed for 100 years, that is why images are only available until the year 1913.

The marriage records cover the years 1936 to 2014. You can view the actual images of the marriage records from the years 1936 to 1988. The years 1989 to 2014 are protected under privacy restrictions. Virginia death, marriage and divorce records are “closed” for 25 years. So you will have to wait until that amount of time has passed before you can view those records.

Eventually the marriage records for the years 1912 to 1936 will be added later.

From a marriage record you can click a link on a parent’s name and from there you can see all the other records that contain that parent. That means you can easily find other brothers and sisters.

The death records cover the years from 1912 to 2014. And their images are available for the years 1912 to 1987. If the Social Security number is listed on the death certificate, it has been removed.

And there are divorce records for the years 1918 to 2014. Images are available for the years 1918 to 1988. In these records you’ll find birthdates, the date the couple was married, where the couple was married, the number of children they had, and the cause of the divorce.

These records were made available via a collaboration between Ancestry and the Virginia Department of Health. There are more than 16 million records that have been digitized and indexed for the state of Virginia.

AncestryDNA is now available in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. The more people who test, the larger the AncestryDNA database will grow, and the more matches we will find. They began offering AncestryDNA in the UK and Ireland in January. And it’s been offered in the US since May 2012.

Here in the US, AncestryDNA is 10% off until June 21st. It’s $89 instead of the normal price of $99.

It costs about $115US in Australia and about $120US in Canada.

——

Here in the US you can try out a new website from Ancestry called Ancestry Health. At this website you can import your family tree from Ancestry and your ethnicity estimates from AncestryDNA results. You can also start a new tree at the site from scratch.

From your tree you enter the medical conditions that your ancestors had. You can also add information about smoking, diet, and exercise. Then you get expert information based on current research for what you’ve placed in your family tree and how it may impact your own health.

Remember Richard III? The king who was found buried in a car park and later reburied at Leicester Cathedral.

Well another King may be buried underneath a car park. It’s possible that Henry I, the youngest son of William the Conqueror, could be lying in a car park in Reading, that would be in England. He supposedly died after eating too many lampreys – this is a fish. He died in 1135. After his death he was interred in a sarcophagus in Reading Abbey. This was destroyed during the 16th century dissolution of the monasteries.

The same person, Philippa Langley, who found Richard III’s remains, is looking for Henry. She and her team are using ground penetrating radar to try to find the whereabouts of the King.

If they find him and if the remains are dug up they will have a harder time identifying him than they did with Richard III. Henry died 350 years earlier than Richard. This means they will have to trace Henry’s ancestry back to about the year 1100. Then they will need to bring the ancestry forward to try to find any living descendants so they will be able to do a DNA test to see if they match the remains of Henry I.

There been a few more apps that have been certified by FamilySearch.

The first one is in German and it’s called Familienbuch. Translated to English this means family book and it is meant to provide a comprehensive management of family data. It lets you quickly acquire individual data with ease.

There are a couple of new games and they are called Fast Photo Game and Match Game. In the photo game you are presented with many images and you need to click on the pictures that are your ancestors.

The Match Game is like the card game concentration and it uses pictures of your ancestors. So you turn over a card and you look at the image, then you try to find another card that is the same image. If they match you get points, if they don’t match the card to flip over so you can’t see them.

There’s something called Multiple Spouses to let you search for ancestors who have more than one spouse in your family tree. And Multiple Parents let you search for ancestors with more than one set of parents in your family tree.

The family history research website, RootsBid, is now certified by FamilySearch. At this site you can request or bid on family history projects. So you can be the person who is looking for help with your genealogy or you can be someone who gets paid to do research.

——

MyHeritage.com has launched a new website called MyHeritage User Stories. This is meant to be a showcase for videos and stories from people who’ve made amazing discoveries at MyHeritage. You can watch inspirational stories and video from people who have used MyHeritage to discover their ancestors.

Spain has now passed a law that will award citizenship to descendants of expelled Jews. This law will come into force in October.

This will ease the path for citizenship of descendants of Jews who were forced to flee the country five centuries ago during the Inquisition. During this time Jews were forced to flee or convert to Catholicism.

This new law will grant dual citizenship rights for Jews with Spanish ancestry. Previously if Jews wanted to become citizens of Spain they had to give up their other citizenship.

The Spanish government is expecting about 90,000 people will apply for this citizenship. It is estimated that there are 3.5 million people around the world who have Jewish ancestry from Spain.

Applicants do not need to be practicing Jews but they must have Jewish ancestry. They will have to pass a test on Spanish language and culture, and prove they had a special connection to Spain. They will have to travel to Spain in order to apply.

This law will expire after three years. If deemed necessary it may be extended by another year.
