The Events/Facts grid has both Events (with locations) and Facts (with a description)

On the drop down list, there is a group of Events, then a group of Facts (like Occupation), then a group of Marriage Events, then a group of Marriage Facts.

Hi Jim;

Thanks for you help. I think I have been pretty well able to sort it all out. It gets confusing(at least for me) when you add an "event" that doesn't really have a location. For example, a caption such as Nationality which would not have a "location". Does the system identify the designated nationality(such as English, Irish, etc.) as a location? Or is there a difference? Am I trying to split the proverbial hair?

Thanks again.

Bill C.

From the edit screen: Reports, Lists, Locations with events, Other options, then type part of the location, Preview.

But if you just mean you've mistyped a location a few times, from the _main_ screen: File, Location, Change Location Globally. You can use F8 - and you can correct several mistyped versions of a location to one common one. No need to correct it for each person.

Re: naming conventions

Lynn Detwiler
 

In the endogamous Pennsylvania Dutch community in Central Pennsylvania where my father was born, this was fairly common for men, although I think it was often just an initial which has been expanded to the full mother's maiden name by later recorders.  At least my grandfather always said he had only a middle initial, not a middle name.  Local newspapers always included the men's middle initials in news reports.

Many large families descended from a small number of early settlers led to lots of intermarriage and double cousin relationships.  If I keep looking I can often find triple and quadruple cousin relationships with my DNA matches.

I am finding that mother's maiden name was used in the early-mid 1800's in parts of England as a second name; which helps in finding the marriage of parents.     Also discovered that on some "out of wedlock" births the father's surname was used as a middle name for the child.  I discovered this with my own g-grandfather and his siblings.

David -

Are you seeing that in the photographs of gravestones or just in the Find-A-Grave text? The text at Find-A-Grave is generally best ignored. As is common in user-provided information at other large genealogy sites such as Ancestry, FamilySearch, and Geni, that information is uncurated and frequently wrong. Many users, for some reason, want to attribute fictional middle names even in the years before middle names were common. I guess that is what Elizabeth Shown Miss called "presentitis" in "Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace", Third Edition (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 2015).

Re: naming conventions

This is, as I have observed a recent phenomenon, a style that has emerged with the advent of the big tree sites such as Ancestry.com. MyHeritage, and many others.

I have not determined whether this is a user issue – uploading or writing in the  names or that the tree site is doing that. 

 The biggest annoyance I have is the married name being foremost with the birth name following.

 

To  develop the style you tell my wife would be Dawn Louice KENNEDY PYCROFT NEILSON or even Dawn Louice KENNEDY NEILSON PYCROFT

This is Fname1, Fname2, Mother’s Married name, her Married name. Her Father’s name.  (or Fname1, Fname2, Mother’s Married name, Her Father’s name.  her Married name.)

Frankly for me the Ancestor Chart  & Tafel  are simple family depictions.  Duplicating the obvious where printable space is limited  adds nothing to the information available.

 

There are also cultural styles also.  Which  and where Find-A-Grave records have you been observing this?  That  could be part of the answer to your question.

 

My  style, as with most and many searchable databases are birth names or married names, rarely both together.  All our civil records are either of those style, simply. Birth, Christening / Baptism, School, Death, Burial, see Linked-in, see Wikipedia, Book Authors, Film actors, etc.
