Research Notes 2018-9-24

Planning has begun for next year’s North Florida Genealogy Conference. The date is set for Saturday, March 9th. The St. Augustine Genealogy Society is one of the sponsors along with Amelia Island Genealogical Society, Jacksonville Genealogical Society, the Southern Genealogist Exchange Society and of course the LDS Church in Orange Park. We will post updates on the conference here as they happen.


In case you missed it . . . Ancestry’s Family Group Sheet has returned to aid in your research! You can access the Family Group Sheet by selecting the drop-down menu for the tree you’re viewing in the upper left-hand corner, and then choosing “Family Group Sheet” at the bottom of the list.


While in the Family Group Sheet view, selecting the Profile button for the focus person or their spouse will take you to that person’s profile page. Selecting Search will initiate a search for that person, and clicking on the name of any children or parents will refocus the family group sheet on that family member.

From this view, you can also add children and spouses and you can toggle between spouses if there are multiple marriages.


Famicity, the beautiful social network designed for families, has now added a premium account in addition to the existing free account. The free account allows you to share photos and stories with your Famicity members. You have 2GB of storage and, of course, Famicity respects and protects the privacy of all account members.

The Premium account will cost you $4.99/month but it includes the following:

  1. Share photos and videos

  2. 50GB of storage

  3. 1GB of storage for each member in your network

  4. Dedicated user support

  5. Respects your privacy


Thanks to the premium account, you can save and play videos right in your Famicity account. Yes, you can post a video in YouTube then share it to your Famicity account, but you may not want to make all your family videos available to the world via YouTube.

Want to learn more? Denise Olson will have a Famicity demonstration at our Family History Faire.


See how a $1.99 app on your iPad becomes a delightful way to share your family history.

Amy Johnson Crow has an interesting article – and podcast – discussing the four things you should do with every genealogy source. It’s well worth reading. You will find it on her website at
