Remember to Honour and Be Thankful

Our students at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies are ready to start another round of online courses on November 1st. As 2021 is winding down, there still is time to complete one more course on our Educational Goals List for this year. Professional genealogists and family historians recognize the need to learn all we can about our research topics of interest. We just don’t know what we don’t know. Online courses allow us to explore new subjects relevant to our projects and refine those research skills needed to succeed in our endeavours. 

November means Remembrance Day is coming soon. This is a time to Remember those who fought, and made the ultimate sacrifice, and to Honour our veterans for their service. We are Thankful for all they have done.

Military conflicts are not a new phenomenon. There is not a generation that has not witnessed some sort of conflict and many have family members who participated at some level. If you want to investigate your family’s military involvement, here a few suggestions to explore and document their service. Current scheduled start dates are given – check for additional scheduled dates to register for these courses.

We also want to Remember and Honour our family members and their contributions to our family’s legacy. We are so Thankful for their cultural heritage and traditions, but also for the memories and current opportunities to celebrate our family’s history. As we prepare for upcoming holidays, make sure to interview family members and ask to see those family photos!

Whatever your plans are for November – continue to pursue your families’ stories! Document your discoveries for the next generation and seek to prove those oral myths and traditions. Make the most of opportunities as they arise, especially with your elderly family members

British Home Child Day

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers a number of courses covering immigration, emigration and migration. For some of our ancestors and extended family members, they seldom stayed in the same place for multiple generations. These major, life-changing decisions were made as a result of multiple factors, which varied dramatically depending on their unique situations. For some young migrants, these decisions were made for them. This is true for the Child Migration schemes from Britain. We have designed a course which specifically explores this topic.

Research: Child Migration from Britain 
From the Course Description:
This course provides an overview of the history of child migration from Britain and an introduction to the records that can be accessed to research them. Britain has a very long history of exporting children. Child migration from Britain occurred over a period of nearly 350 years through various private and government sponsored emigration schemes. This course is a good starting point for anyone who knows, or even suspects, that they have a British child migrant ancestor in their family tree. Children were sent to the American Colonies, the West Indies, Australia, Canada, Southern Rhodesia, South Africa and New Zealand. The major recipients of children, based upon numbers, were Canada and Australia. The course is structured to address research in each of the receiving countries, in Britain and from the sending agencies themselves. The course concludes with a case study which uses a child who migrated to Canada during a time period when child migration to Canada was near its peak.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~           
One of these schemes was for the British Home Children. This was a difficult time period and impacted many families – for both those who were sent to a new land and those who were left behind. The young migrants sent to Canada are covered in Modules 2 and 6 of this course. 

On September 28th, we remember the estimated 100,000 children who were sent out to Canada to find a better life than what they were leaving behind. This date was declared by the Government of Canada as explained here in the announcement for the British Home Child Day Act, 2011

To begin your British Home Children Research, start by checking these web pages:
Home Children, 1869-1932 – Library and Archives Canada (LAC)
Canada Home Children British Sources (National Institute) – FamilySearch Wiki
Canada Home Children Bibliography and Suggested Reading (National Institute) – FamilySearch 
Canada Home Children – FamilySearch Wiki 

Be sure to check out our research course: Child Migration from Britain. The next course is scheduled to start on October 4, 2021. Check the course calendar for course schedule after this date.

Find out if there were any child migrant schemes to the regions where you are researching. If you are trying to place someone, who was born in England during this time frame, who shows up individually in an established family household with a different surname, and doesn’t seem to fit into the local families, try looking for a child migrant, especially if they are working as a domestic or a farm labourer. Then take the time to document their story. Perhaps, you will be the one who connects that distant family member, and enables them to discover what happened to that little one, who left the family for a far-off land so long ago. Many are not forgotten; they are only disconnected with their British roots.

Transcription Tuesday

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies offers 230+ online courses on a wide variety of topics, providing genealogical education for those interested in beginning to research their family history, as well as professional genealogists.

One of the foundational research skills to develop is Transcribing. For this reason, we have created a compulsory Basic Level course to equip all of our certificate students with this vital ability. However, all family history researchers, no matter what their level of expertise, should strive to acquire this core skill.

Skills: Transcribing, Abstracting & Extracting
This course teaches students the transcribing, abstracting and extracting skills to enhance their genealogy research. Practicing these skills form a large part of the course work, with examples and exercises to assist the development of these skills.

We have also created an Advanced Level course to cover the broader topic of Palaeography, where the primary goal involves transcribing the unfamiliar writing in old documents into easily readable transcriptions to use in our research.

Palaeography: Reading & Understanding Historical Documents
Topics to explore include: Writing Materials, Handwriting Scripts, Roman Numerals, Currency, The Calendar, The Religious Calendar, The Church, The Manor & Social Life, Weights and Measures, Origin of Family Names, and an Introduction to Latin Terminology.

The course material includes a detailed workbook, designed to reinforce the material covered, with exercises to practise new transcription skills and gain experience with reading and interpreting a variety of types of documents.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As researchers, we have found that there are many skills we need to employ in order to achieve success in our future research projects. Transcription Tuesday will share guidelines and practical suggestions to help our readers to develop the skills for making effective transcriptions, abstracts, and extractions.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The courses Skills: Transcribing, Abstracting & Extracting and Palaeography: Reading & Understanding Historical Documents are offered monthly, beginning on the first Monday of every month. Register today!

THIS MESSAGE MAY BE OF INTEREST TO OUR NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR GENEALOGICAL STUDIES SENIOR STUDENTS OR OUR GRADUATES 

DNA: Methodology & Analysis

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies is pleased to announce the launch of our newest online course.

OUR NEWEST ADVANCED DNA COURSE

DNA: Methodology & Analysis
This course covers advanced techniques associated with DNA methodology, analysis and strategies. Students should have a firm grasp of the understanding of autosomal, Y-chromosome, and mitochondrial DNA.

More information from the course description:
While advances in DNA testing are exciting and useful, there are real limitations. DNA does not hold all of the answers for everyone. Nevertheless, it plays an important role for many who are searching for family, or those simply hoping to learn more about themselves and their genetics. In some cases, DNA testing has helped people discover unknown medical risks, which is invaluable in situations where little or no family health history is available.
When incorporating DNA into a genealogical search, the chances of success depend on a variety of factors. At a basic level, people biologically related to you will have to take a DNA test and share the results on the same service or platform you choose to test. After that you will need to use the tools available for DNA analysis allowing you to understand the results to their fullest.

Each DNA testing company provides its own set of tools you can use for making sense of your DNA matches, and these tools change over time. Some are extensive, some may seem overly simplistic, and some seem like they are the same from one company to the next but have small differences that can make a difference to a search. This course will help you determine what tools are best for you and when to use them.

BASIC DNA COURSES

DNA: Introduction to Genetic Genealogy covers the basics of DNA and genetic inheritance and is a comprehensive introduction to the three main test types: mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), Y chromosome DNA (YDNA), and autosomal DNA (atDNA). Explore how they relate to genealogy.

DNA: Autosomal DNA – Testing for Everyone examines what Autosomal or Admixture DNA (atDNA) is, how it is passed down, and what a genetic genealogy test will tell you. Discover how atDNA is a wonderful tool for unlocking your hidden past when combined with traditional paper genealogy.

DNA: Tracing Maternal & Paternal Lines focuses on two types of DNA testing for genealogy: Y-Chromosome DNA (yDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) testing. Discover how to read and interrupt your testing results.

ADVANCED DNA COURSES

DNA: Special Circumstances – Adoptees & Unknown Parentage
This research course explores how to use genealogy and genetics to uncover genealogical roots, connect with biological family, and better understand medical history. The emphasis will be on adoptees and those helping adoptees with their DNA and genealogy.

DNA PACKAGES

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies DNA Research packages include courses relevant to understanding DNA and how it can be used in genealogical research. The first DNA Package includes the four DNA courses listed above. The second DNA package includes the above courses, plus the four DNA courses listed below.

DNA: Understanding Testing and Research Strategies (4 course package)
DNA and Relevant Topics (8 course package)

MORE DNA COURSES

Forensic Genealogy is a fast-growing field dealing with the genealogical research that might have legal implications. This course is designed to help forensic researchers identify and contact living people. Students will learn some of the basic skills necessary to get started and investigate specific career subsets in forensic work.

Genealogy Ethical Guidelines & Standards examines various situations all researchers may encounter, exploring ethical considerations faced when sharing genealogy research. Whether you are a hobby genealogist, society member, serious researcher, or a professional genealogist, ethics affect your work and require the adherence to the standards of a Code of Ethics to make diverse ethical decisions.

Organizing a ONE NAME STUDY examines the art of researching a specific SURNAME. Course material will elaborate on the many different elements you should consider as you begin. Organizing your research, searching for primary sources around the world, analysing the data you acquire, publicising, publishing and preserving your work are topics to be thoroughly discussed along with tips and techniques in the field of One Name Studies.

Organizing a ONE PLACE STUDY studies the people in a community within the context of the place they live. A One Place Study brings family and local history together, reconstructing the community to gain insights into the lives of the people who have walked the streets, ploughed the fields, worked and worshipped in a place. Discover the sources of information available to researchers, how to access them and the fascinating details which can be uncovered.

Happy Mothers’ Day

It is time once again to honour our Mother and celebrate her special day. This has been a North American tradition since the early 1900s. Where would we be without Mom?

 

Tracing the women in our family tree may be relatively easy now, but the farther back we go, the more challenging it is to find their day-to-day activities being recorded. The valued records that were preserved tend to be about the legal issues within the family rather than the social aspects of their daily routines. Yet, her role was so important.

Grandmothers, Mothers and Daughters

Our female ancestors not only played significant roles in our lives; they played their part in historical events as well. Researching at times can be a challenge, but we need to ensure that we persevere and tell their stories. Their voice must be heard.

Start with home resources, family heirlooms, and treasured mementoes connected to milestone events. Such items remind us of the connections we have to the past generations, and they provide great clues to pursue in our research. What were her interests? Did she belong to a volunteer organization? What were her accomplishments?

If you have hit a brick wall in the quest to find information about your female ancestors, consider registering for our Research: Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters – Tracing Women course, which is just one of the online genealogy courses from The National Institute for Genealogical Studies.

 

This course is designed to guide you through the process of researching your family’s history by covering strategies and key sources you will need to access in order to overcome common challenges when tracing female ancestors. It will show you how to document “her” story and reveal the often-hidden aspects of their lives.

The Research: Grandmothers, Mothers & Daughters – Tracing Women course draws our attention to the material covered in this course. Check out course highlights in the following blog posts:

Part 1: Researching HER Story
Part 2: What’s in a Name?
Part 3: Digging Deeper into HER Story
Part 4: Timelines for the Ladies in our Tree

Understanding Latin in Italian Records

Every country-specific certificate program at The National Institute for Genealogical Studies includes courses for Religious Records. In many cases, the religious beliefs of our ancestors became a vital part of their family story. We explore the records of baptisms, marriages and burials, along with other religious ceremonies relating to their beliefs and customs, to discover information not found in the civil records.

In the course Italian: Catholic Church Records-Part 1, we will examine these records, but one of the first challenges may be language. A useful resource is the Italian Genealogical Word List for translating Italian to English. However, Latin may be a bigger challenge. Here are some tips.

A Lesson in Latin: Understanding the Italian Records

Latin is an inflected language in which all verbs are conjugated, and all the nouns and adjectives use different cases. This means that words have different endings according to the function they play in a sentence, so it really does not matter in what order the words in a sentence are presented. This is different than the English language.

Names and words can be seen in the normative, genitive, ablative, and accusative forms. These are defined as:

  • “Nominative (nominativus): Subject of the sentence.
  • Genitive (genitivus): Generally translated by the English possessive, or by the objective with the preposition of.
  • Accusative (accusativus): Direct object of the verb and object with many prepositions.
  • Ablative (ablativus): Used to show means, manner, place, and other circumstances. Usually translated by the objective with the prepositions “from, by, with, in, at.””[1]

Some examples include:

Nominative Genitive (of) ex + Ablative (from) Accusative Italian
Antoni-us Antoni-i ex Antoni-o Antoni-um Antonio
Joseph-us Joseph-i ex Joseph-o Joseph-um Giuseppe
Anna-a Ann-ae ex Ann-a Ann-am Anna
Joann-es Joann-is ex Joan-e Joann-em Giovanni

Recurrent words have different endings:

Nominative Genitive Accusative English
Fili-us Fili-i Fili-um Son
Fili-a Fili-ae Fili-am Daughter
Infans Infant-is Infant-em Infant

Months are often abbreviated:

English Latin Abbreviation(s)
September septembris 7ber, 7bris, VIIber, VIIbris
October octobris 8ber, 8bris, VIIIber, VIIIbris
November Novembris 9ber, 9bris, IXber, IXbris
December Decembris 10ber, 10bris, Xber, Xbris

Are you researching your Italian Catholic ancestors? Our course Italian: Catholic Church Records-Part 1 can help you to discover part of their stories through the records they left behind. Check the Course Calendar for the next time this course will be offered.

Christmas Time

As December is winding down, and we are preparing for the holidays in unique and special ways, it is a time to reflect on which traditions we will be celebrating this year. Childhood memories are merged with current memories being created around the world – the old and the new unite. As family historians, we love to gather the stories of Christmas past. It truly is a time to reminisce and share family memories with our kinfolk over vintage photo albums and traditional meals. Don’t forget to record the stories! … and also, the special moments of this unique holiday season.

The National Institute for Genealogical Studies appreciates the opportunities you have given us to be a part of your genealogical education journey as you work to refine your research skills. Through our various online courses, we have endeavoured to support the needs of both amateur family historians and aspiring professional genealogists with reliable and comprehensive education, providing instruction in general methodology, specialized research topics, and so much more. We will continue to offer valuable skill-building opportunities in the coming year.

Our family stories originate from so many unique backgrounds. Our heritage is truly woven from those threads – being combined through the centuries to form our own distinctive family history. Their stories become our inheritance – they are in our DNA. Gather those stories. Document the facts of the historical events that your ancestors participated in. History comes alive when we see our very own family members. Record their experiences and write about the legacy they have left for us to uncover.

How did they celebrate the holidays? What traditions did they bring from the old country? Which of those traditions are still observed each year? What new customs were adopted as family ethnicities were blended? Our holiday foundations originate somewhere – do you know the story? Make it your goal in this next year to discover the origins AND to document it.

The list of National Institute courses is sure to feature one or more courses to help you to explore the lives of your ancestors. Here are a few suggestions:
Discover Your Family History
Life of Our Ancestors
Demystifying Culture & Folklore
Research: Social History
Writing Your Family History Book
Writing the Genealogist’s Memoir 

This past year has certainly presented its challenges and unique opportunities. As we close out this holiday season, take time to reflect on what can be added to your own family history, and what you want to pursue in the next year. Make new memories as you retell your family’s stories to the next generation.
