Glad to have joined you today @ancestryhour #AncestryHour. Lots of good things happening in the #genealogy community.
@MsFrugalone @Cferra1227 We have years to go until the 1950 US Federal Census, according to the countdown on The Twelve Key. ( superb blog, one of my all-time favorites) #AncestryHour.
@Cferra1227 @packrat74 that is strange. Although my grandfather (James) record remains, officially, Kate :-) #ancestryhour.
@packrat74 @Cferra1227 :-) I can hear local accents when I read some of the old Irish name and place spellings :-) #ancestryhour.
@Cferra1227 @MsFrugalone #AncestryHour My favorite US enumeration, from 1920: Elistina Clumpfort for Ernestina Klopfer..
@MsFrugalone @Cferra1227 #AncestryHour I was trained as a linguist. Variant spellings are valuable data about how names were pronounced. But some data points are more fun than others. 🤣🤣.
@look4ancestors Thanks for sharing the link -- I came down with a bug and missed this episode. Greatly appreciated. #AncestryHour.
@KWFamilyHistory #AncestryHour For most individuals, you may prefer to display births/deaths. For others you may have only baptism/burial. Use what you have, just make sure it is clear which events you mean. /2.
@MsFrugalone @packrat74 What I did was I remembered where they lived. I live near Haverhill and my dad would point out the family houses and what street they lived on whenever we drove by. By using that, I was able to find them in the 1930 and 1940 censuses. #ancestryhour #worldsgreatestdetective.
Those who have been on #AncestryHour for a while know of my obsession with Canadian Local Histories - especially the Prairies..
@MsFrugalone #AncestryHour One of my favorite census mis-spellings: Chips Devil for Chipstable..
@wendy_percival @ancestryhour (2) immigration act denied entry to imbeciles, epileptics. You could return an adopted child of they developed epilepsy, and so on..
@papadanf @ancestryhour Yes, couple of people suggested head injury. Not aware of yet! Might be something to discover. #ancestryhour.
Would it be cheeky of me to include one of my own on my list of FH reference books? Co-written by @AudreyCollins23 I genuinely refer to it 😎 #ancestryhour @UkNatArchives.
@wendy_percival @McKenneyJean I wonder if he ever met my ancestor. She was accosted in the area at the time of the Ripper #AncestryHour.
@wendy_percival @ancestryhour They were awful. I researched it in college as I was also diagnosed. It is unusual for an onset late in life. May have occurred because of an accident or serious blow to the head. In the 1920s there still Homes for epileptics. The McCarran White (1).
@geneastories @McKenneyJean Yes, searched his name on other matter but found no injury references. But stuff coming online all the time. Will keep an eye out. Big excitement so far, tho, he was in H division of Met in Ripper era and had link to one murder investigation! #ancestryhour.

@chiddickstree He was also an attorney and judge who lied about being born in the and about attending Harvard. #ancestryhour.
@wendy_percival @McKenneyJean Worth checking local newspapers? If injury caused by assault on a copper it might have been reported #AncestryHour.
#AncestryHour I have another war memorial in my house! Slack Lane Baptist Chapel in #Oakworth has closed and I’m looking after this for a week until it’s installed in a new home in a local public building where it will be seen:.
@wendy_percival @McKenneyJean It can develop late in life, especially after head injuries. I think even in 1901 the workhouses and asylums treated sufferers #ancestryhour.
Sounds like an excellent idea #1placestudies and you guys @oneplacestudies have a conference in October this year too? #ancestryhour.
Looking forward to seeing you there #ancestryhour #THEGenShow.
@turnstonegenie Not yet checked the connection as email came whilst I was in France & didn’t have details with me. #AncestryHour.
Think I’ll go back to browsing through what my family have called the ‘vault’ sometimes I come across something I didn’t initially see the first time! #ancestryhour.
