Fee or Free US World War I Draft Registration Cards

0

The US World War I Draft Registration Cards is a popular collection for finding male ancestors because it “accounts for approximately 98 percent of men in the U.S. born between 1872 and 1900. The total U.S. population in 1917-1918 was about 100 million individuals, so close to 25 percent of the total population is represented in these records.”*

There were three primary registrations:

  • The first registration was on June 5, 1917, for all men ages 21 to 31 (specifically, men born between June 6, 1886 and June 5, 1896)

  • The second registration was on June 5, 1918, for all men who turned 21 after June 5, 1917, and a supplemental registration on August 24, 1918, for all men who turned 21 after June 5, 1918.

  • The third registration was on September 12, 1918 for all men ages 18 to 45 who had not previously enrolled.**

The US National Archives has some digitized draft registration cards for famous Americans, including this card for composer and jazz musician, Duke Ellington.

Draft Registration Card for Edward Kennedy Ellington, courtesy National Archives: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/641759

It’s important to note that not all men in the United States who served in the First World War registered for the draft. I have a grandfather and great uncle, both born just outside the registration requirement windows, who volunteered and served during World War I but who never registered for the draft. Also, not all men who registered for the draft served during World War I.

If you’re fortunate enough to have ancestors who registered for the draft, there’s good information to be gleaned. “Each registration was slightly different. …However, they generally included the following information:

  • Name

  • Birth date

  • Birthplace

  • Draft registration date

  • Sometimes, father’s birthplace

  • Name of nearest relative

  • Age in years

  • Sex is implied, since all registrants were males

  • Marital status

  • List of any dependents

  • Address”***

Fee or Free Photo Scanning

0
E-Z-Photo Scan at RootsTech 2017

 

Fee or Free Photo Scanning

If you’re like me, you have piles of old, printed photos begging to be digitized. I even took mine out of old albums & scrapbooks and threw the albums away (I don’t recommend this). But before you take on the enormous task of digitizing your photos, make sure you have the right tools. It makes no sense to hand scan small photos, one by one, on a flatbed scanner or with a phone app. There’s a better tool available that is a huge time-saver–E-Z Photo Scan.

E-Z Photo Scan sells & rents multiple scanners but my favorite by far has been the model that allows you to stack 30-60 smaller photos in a pile and it auto feeds them into the scanner, names the file (according to your instructions), and can output in multiple file formats. It will run a stack of photos through in minutes. It can take a scan of both sides of your photo as it runs it through. (There are other options for larger photos and photos/scrapbooks that can’t be bent in any way-I’m not addressing those in this blog.)

Below is a video I took at RootsTech of a patron using the E-Z Photo Scanner to scan a few photos. This doesn’t do the scanner justice because she’s just dropping photos in one-by-one with what she has on hand.

This is the vision: you will have a nicely organized box with stacks of photos and you will put a stack of photos on the scanner and let it feed them through while you sit back and watch digital versions appear on the computer, with files named so you will be able to locate and identify them in the future.

Personally, I wouldn’t attack the scanning job without this tool. If you don’t have access to this type of scanning equipment or a similar time-saving tool, prepare your printed photos now, for a time in the future when you will have access to this type of equipment. Prepping the project will take far more time than the actual digitizing. (Or work on renaming and organizing your most recent digital photo files and master the art of file naming with current photos before you attack old photos.)

E-Z Photo Scan just advertised a Monday webinar (that’s today, Monday, May 15th) at 1 pm EDT and is inviting people to pre-register. The webinar will address file naming techniques, “tools, strategies, and ways needed to turn naming file names into high-performance search bots.” I wish I’d taken a class on file naming before I scanned my photos. I should have spent time organizing the photos into the batches I wanted to scan together, labeling the piles with how I wanted the system to automatically name them, etc. I was just so excited by the time-saving technology I jumped in without much planning. (Again, I don’t recommend this.)

Fee

E-Z Photo Scan

E-Z Photo Scan sells this equipment or will rent the equipment in the United States and Canada and they offer financing for purchases. This is a display from RootsTech 2017 showing how the rental process works and what is delivered when you order.

E-Z-Photo Scan at RootsTech 2017

E-Z-Photo Scan at RootsTech 2017

If you choose to rent you will definitely want to do all the organizing and prep work before the machine delivery date. And by organizing and prep, I mean gather every possible photo you can digitize, put it in the stack you want it digitized with, have it in the exact order you want the files to appear in, and pre-label each stack with the file naming format you intend to use (ideas from the webinar or any other file naming source you trust). This is a massive project and most of the work will be preparation. You might want to ask family or neighbors if they’d be interested in sharing the rental fee and allowing them time with the equipment. I’ve heard of groups sharing the costs and taking turns using the equipment that was set up in one person’s garage. I also have a girlfriend who purchased one of these for her family (she’s a diehard librarian/archivist). So even though the rental or purchase price seems like a high start-up cost, people do it and love it.

Epson, Canon, Wolverine, etc

Epson, Canon, Wolverine are just a few companies offering similar products in my area. Search online for other digital, auto-feed, photo scanners available in your area. Some computer and office stores in my area sell this equipment but options will vary based on your location.

Free

LDS Family History Centers

Many LDS Family History Centers located throughout the world have this equipment available for free. You’ll need to contact your local family history center and ask what digitizing equipment they have and how to reserve a time to use it. You’ll want to plan on at least 30 minutes to familiarize yourself with the system, even if a volunteer is there to assist you. (I’ve heard a few people say they’re afraid to use these facilities because they don’t want to be proselytized and in my experience, this is not the purpose of the LDS Family History Centers and religion has never been discussed when I was working, but if religion did come up, a respectful “I don’t like to discuss religion” would end it.)

 

Libraries and Archives

Libraries and Archives worldwide have digitizing equipment and some make it available to patrons and offer use of the equipment free-of-charge. Others may charge a fee. I used this or similar equipment at a local college (free of charge) and actually reserved two machines for 2 hours each, and had my sons feeding photos through one machine and batch naming them while I fed photos through the other. (We brought USB cards with inadequate storage space and an external hard drive with 1TB of space that was more than adequate.)

 

Genealogical and Historical Societies

Genealogical and Historical Societies would also be a great place to check. I suspect if they offered use of the equipment for free, that would for members only, and they would charge a fee to other patrons.

 

It’s been four years since we scanned our photos and I recently saw new equipment for digitizing scrapbooks that allowed the patron to flip through page after page as it digitized. The equipment took a photo, a digital version appeared on the computer, then the patron flipped to the next page, etc. No need to take apart scrapbooks and albums. Anyway, that’s another blog for another day, but the point is, don’t start a project until you’ve researched the latest and greatest tools. Nothing is more frustrating than learning you were inefficient with your time because you chose the wrong tool for the project. E-Z Photo Scan is aptly named, it’s easy to use and is the right tool for the job.

Best in your digitizing whether it’s fee or free.

Fee or Free 1875 Norway Census

0

The 1875 Norway Census (Norwegian: Folketellingen for kongeriget Norge den 31te desember 1875) began December 31, 1875 and is expected to include 99% of the population of Norway. Information was gathered by census takers throughout the country who spoke to any family member living at an address or a neighbor if family wasn’t on-site. Some people were enumerated twice because they were temporary residents in one locale but their names were also given at their home residence.

Some information contained in the 1875 Norway Census includes:

  • Name

  • Gender

  • Resident or Temporary Resident

  • Whether Absent from parish and location at time of Census

  • Position in family

  • Occupation

  • Marital Status

Where to find the 1875 Norway Census?

 

Fee Sites

  • Ancestry

    Ancestry has the Norway, Select Census, 1875 and their records came from FamilySearch, so have the same benefits and limitations of the FamilySearch collection (the records are currently from Akershus county, Hedmark county, and Østfold county in Norway)

  • MyHeritage

    MyHeritage has the 1875 Norway Census and this appears to be the same data as Ancestry and FamilySearch with records currently from Akershus, Hedmark, and Østfold. MyHeritage has excellent translation services which might help bridge any language barriers as you search these records.

 

Free Sites

For more information on how to best search the 1875 Norway Census (and other Norwegian records), I’d recommend you follow a native blogger who has invested a lot of time in the research. I follow Martin Roe Eidhammer at Norwegian Genealogy and then some and there are probably others as well. Best in your searches, whether they’re fee or free!

US Census Records – Fee or Free Comparison Chart

0

Here’s a comparison chart of US Census Records available at FamilySearch and some partner websites including AmericanAncestors, Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage.

Each title links to a record collection. FamilySearch is the only entirely free collection but you can use the other links to get a feel for the look of each site. AmericanAncestors links to a general search window and you’ll need to select the database, “United State Census …”

“Index only” means a site provides a name index, which is information extracted from the handwritten census record. This usually includes every name in the census, the census year, the place the record was collected, the age and gender of the family member, and possibly information about other family members living at the residence, etc.

“Index and Images” means the site provides the index and an image of the handwritten census record. The image allows you to verify the extracted information, and possibly see other census information not extracted for the index.

Fee or Free online 1901 Ireland Census, 1911 Ireland Census, and Griffith’s Valuation

0

This updates and improves the Fee or Free 1911 Ireland Census post because there’s a great free option for finding the 1911 Ireland Census as well as the 1901 Ireland Census and Griffith’s Valuation.

Fee or Free Ireland Census and Griffiths Valuation Online

 

Griffiths Valuation?

Everyone loves census records but here’s a quick ‘why do I care’ explanation of Griffith’s Valuation (GV). Griffith’s Valuation is a census substitute for the 1800s Ireland census records. Griffith’s Valuation is a property tax survey done by Sir Richard Griffith detailing all taxable property and agriculture in Ireland in the mid-1800s. Ireland suffered huge record losses in 1922 when The Public Record Office was destroyed. The 1821, 1831, 1841, and 1851 censuses were destroyed* in the fire. The 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1891 censuses had already been destroyed by government order. So Griffith’s Valuation is the best census substitute for the mid-1800s in Ireland. “It covers over a million dwellings, and nearly 20 million acres, recording around 80% of the population. Because the Valuation was published (and has long been out of copyright) it is by far the most widely available record used for Irish research.”**

 

Fee Options

You can reread Fee or Free 1911 Ireland Census for the options but basically, RootsIreland, FindMyPast, Ancestry, and MyHeritage are four of the best subscription options for online versions of the 1911 Ireland Census as well as the 1901 Ireland Census and Griffiths Valuation.

 

Free Options

The National Archives of Ireland is the primary free option for the 1901 & 1911 Ireland Censuses and Ask About Ireland is the primary free option for Griffith’s Valuation.

Here’s one more free option: Irish Townlands. Irish Townlands uses open source code (OpenStreetMap) to map all of Ireland and her 32 counties, 326 baronies, 2,506 civil parishes, 3,438 electoral divisions, and 60,941 townlands and subtownlands. It’s incredible!

If you already know the townland where your ancestor lived you can select it and scroll down the townland information page, see where it sits in relation to the rest of Ireland, and then find links to the 1901 Ireland Census, 1911 Ireland Census, and Griffiths Valuation. If records exist for that area, the links take you to the townland records at The National Archives of Ireland for the censuses and Ask About Ireland for Griffith’s Valuation.

If you don’t already know the townland where your ancestor lived, you’ll need to go directly to AskAboutIreland.ie and do a broad family name search (family name search instructions). Or if you’re researching an area and want to see all the residents, you can do a broad place name search (place name search instructions) and it will list all the occupants of that area with links to Griffith’s Valuation if there is one.

Best in your searches, whether they’re fee or free.

 

*A few census returns for 1821, 1831, 1841, and 1851 still exist and are online at The National Archives of Ireland and FindMyPast, and parts are available at RootsIreland.

**Grenham, John. “What is Griffith’s Valuation” and “Why is Griffith’s important for Irish Genealogy?” Ask About Ireland. Accessed April 15, 2017. http://www.askaboutireland.ie/reading-room/history-heritage/irish-genealogy/what-is-griffiths-valuati/ and http://www.askaboutireland.ie/reading-room/history-heritage/irish-genealogy/what-is-griffiths-valuati/why-is-griffiths-importan/.

p.s. Fee sites may at times have Griffith’s Valuation searchable for free.

Fee or Free Online Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850

0

 

The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS), The Essex Institute, and others were commissioned to publish Massachusetts Vital Records up to 1850 for various towns in Massachusetts.

From AmericanAncestors (NEHGS): “At the turn of the twentieth century NEHGS was instrumental in introducing and passing legislation to appropriate funds to produce books of vital statistics to the year 1850 for the cities and towns in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. …Not all Massachusetts towns are included.”

 

FEE options

 

AmericanAncestors

AmericanAncestors.com has a Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850 Collection that includes these commissioned books as well as some substitutes for towns whose vital records were not collected/commissioned. You can search by individual town volume.

Ancestry

Ancestry.com has these individual books available online and you can search by individual town volume.

FindMyPast

FindMyPast.com has this collection available online searchable across the entire collection.

 

FREE options

 

OnGenealogy

OnGenealogy.com has a list of the free, online Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850 books including a few substitutes for towns whose records weren’t commissioned. Most of these books are out of copyright and the versions not currently available online (for the towns of Ashfield, Charlestown, Eastham, Fairhaven, Harwich, Lowell, Marshfield, Milton, Montague, Otis, Pepperell, Sandisfield, Swansea, and Taunton) may still be under copyright.

If you’re trying to find free records for a town not included in this list, Internet Archive, Google Books, or HathiTrust are great places to start searching. Also try Massachusetts Births and Christenings, 1639-1915 at FamilySearch.
