2013 Docu-Challenge #1: English Parish Register Marriage Entry – Part 3 — 6 Comments

  1. Good sleuthing. Devonshire has hundreds of parishes, so Sarah Bickle’s baptism could be recorded in any of them. The “Cornwall” collection had only two parishes in Devonshire listed. It’s not clear if they will add more, or if those two are considered part of “Cornwall” the region in addition to Cornwall county.

  2. Thanks Randy … and the info you have just provided officially DOUBLES what I knew about English research LOL. It was fun (but hard) trying to find anything that even remotely related to the Bickles though.

  3. Betty, you can download the free trial version and try it out before you purchase. I think you will find that it forces you to look at your research in a whole new way. Also – a little birdie told me that there is an updated version being released in about a week with some new stuff (!!) and some fixes that are addressed in the other posts in this series.

  4. I missed the Homework Hangout last week and I’d like watch the video. I couldn’t seem to find it on DearMYRTLE – YouTube. Can you possibly point me in the right direction?

    BTW, I struggled with numerous aspects of this assignment. I’m not making the transition to Evidentia easily! I need to shift my mental gears to make use of this great tool.

    Thanks for posting your methodology.

    PS I used Transcript software to do my transcription for this assignment and found it to be outstanding.

    You have found the main reason why I think Evidentia makes such a great tool in our analysis arsenal – it forces us to think about our evidence differently than we ever have before. I know it’s hard to “turn off” the analysis part of your brain while you’re entering claims. This is what I struggled with the most, I think. But don’t worry – the more you use it, the easier it gets!

    P.S. I also LOVE Transcript.
